Exploratory ab initio conformational analysis has been carried out on phosphoserine (Pse) residue using formyl-L-serinamide-phopate-esther magnesium salt [HCO-NHCH(CH2OPO3Mg)-CONH2]. On the basis of the computed stabilities it appeared that the Mg salt of For-L-Pse-NH 2 has greater flexibility than the unphosphorilated counter part: For-L-Ser-NH2.
