Abstract

The crystal and molecular structure of a dipeptide containing a blocked gamma-carboxyglutamyl (Gla) residue is presented. Two intermolecular hydrogen bonds link the amides with carbonyl groups in the dipeptide backbone, but the protected gamma-carboxy groups on the modified glutamic acid are not hydrogen bonded.
