The ginseng tetrapeptide H-L-Val-γ-D-Glu-D-Arg-Gly-OH (1) was synthesized using a solution-phase methodology, and its solution conformation in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)-d6 was determined by a combination of NMR and computational techniques with the DADAS90 program. This compound has a rigid backbone based on three intramolecular hydrogen bonds between D-Arg NH and L- Val CO, between Gly NH and D-Glu CO, and between Gly NH and Gly CO.
