Early attempts to identify plausible conformations of a linear octapeptide hormone, angiotensin-II (Asp-Arg-Val-Tyr-Ile-His-Pro-Phe), using various theoretical and experimental methods, have led to various conformational models. So far, no consensus has been made about the solution phase structure and the receptor binding structure of angiotensin-II. The ultimate goal for the conformation study of the peptide hormone is to develop a new potent drug. Therefore, we have devised a strategy for designing the pharmacophore by studying thermodynamically possible conformations of various kinds of angiotensin-II antagonists and angiotensin-II.
