The two independent copies of the tetrapeptide found in the asymmetric unit have similar structures, which are both consistent with the results of NMR studies of cyclo-(-L-Pro-Gly-)2 in solution. The structures are asymmetric and have a trans-cis-trans-cis peptide backbone, in which the two L-Pro-Gly peptide bonds are trans and the two Gly-L-Pro peptide bonds are cis. A detailed comparison with other cyclic tetrapeptides is given, and a brief comparison with the results of single-crystal X-ray structures of other cyclic oligopeptides containing L-proline alternating with glycine is presented.
