In this study, eight oxytocin (OT) antagonists were subjected to conformational analysis. By means of simulated annealing, 2,000 structures were generated to sample the conformational space. The preferred main-chain and side-chain dihedral angles, intramolecular H-bond interactions (types 1←4 and 1←3), and secondary-structure elements (β-turns) were determined in the series of compounds. The influence of the modified amino acid on these structural elements was established; the values determined will be used as filtration criterion in preliminary research.
