The influence of peptide sequence and Leu chirality in linear and cyclic peptides containing 3-[2-(9-anthryl)benzoxazol-5-yl]alanine on interaction with β-cyclodextrin were studied using fluorescence and NMR spectroscopy. The analysis of enthalpy-entropy compensation effect (α=1.05±0.02 and TΔS00=15.1±0.5 kJ mol−1) indicates that the entropic contribution connected with the solvent reorganization is the major factor governing the peptides-β-cyclodextrin complexation. Moreover, spatial orientation of guest-host molecule depends more than association constant on Leu residue configuration. However, the cyclization of the peptide chain substantially decrease the association constant with β-CD. An analysis of 2D NMR spectra reveals that inclusion complex is formed by penetration of cyclodextrin cavity from wider and narrow rims by anthryl group in the case of Box(Ant)-SPKL or anthryl and Leu residues for Box(Ant)-SPK(D)L analogue. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
