B. RATIONALE FOR THE COMPARTMENTALIZATION OF ENERGY CHANGES ASSOClATED WlTH NEUROPHYSIN-PEPTIDE COMPLEX FORMATION The above treatment makes several assumptions. These are (a) that the conformation of the protein in the bound state is independent of the identity of bound peptide; (b) that the intrinsic energy, AG&,, of formation of each bond between peptide and protein is independent of other bonds; and (c) that the conformation of each segment of unbound and bound peptide is independent of the presence of other segments.
First, the contribution of the a-NH; diminishes by a factor of 100 when the carboxyl to which it binds protonates, but binding persists with the protonated carboxyl (79, 86). This diminution is accompanied by a more negative enthalpy of peptide binding, indicating that the contribution of the purely ionic component of the salt bridge is associated with a low positive enthalpy change and is therefore entropy driven as expected (79). ,H; can be calculated as 7 kcaYmol (5). As pointed out elsewhere (5, 85, 103), such a value might be artificially inflated relative to the intrinsic bonding energy, because failure to neutralize the active site carboxylate would be destabilizing if this resides in a nonpolar crevice in the bound state.
This is also true for a disulfide (94) or phenyl ring (Table 2) in position 1 attached to the p-CH2, the enthalpy being the most negative in the latter case (94). The negative enthalpies associated with bonding polarizable residues have been assigned to van der Waals interactions and/or to a tightening of vibrational modes in the complex (94,96, 106). In either event, it is clear that the analysis here allows such interactions to be isolated from the thermodynamics of the system as a whole. It is also relevant (Table 2) that values obtained for the Met-1 side chain are independent of residue 3, in accord with assumptions.
