Sulfated CCK-58 and CCK-8 have identical bioactive C-terminal primary sequences but distinct C-terminal solution structures and different bioactivities. To examine structural differences in greater detail, rat CCK-58 and -8 were synthesized with isotopic enrichment of C-terminal residues with 15 N at α-amino nitrogens. Proton and nitrogen chemical shift assignments of peptide solutions were obtained by homo- and heteronuclear NMR methods. These data show that the tertiary structure ensembles of C-terminal CCK-8 and CCK-58 differ significantly. Thus, distinct solution conformations may explain differences in CCK A and CCK B receptor interactions of large and small molecular forms of CCK.
