ResumenThe conformations of two synthetic pentapeptides with antimicrobial activity and their 4-fluorophenylalanine (Pff)-containing analogues (ArXArXAr-NH2; Ar=Phe, Pff; X=Lys, Arg) have been studied. NMR experiments carried out both in aqueous fluoroalcohol solutions and SDS micelles permitted their interactions with membrane-like environments to be explored. WaterLOGSY experiments and Mn2+-based paramagnetic probes were also applied to assess their orientations with respect to the SDS micelles. In addition, pulse-field gradient (PFG) diffusion NMR spectroscopy studies were conducted, under different experimental conditions (i.e., concentration, temperature) to characterize the possible changes in the peptides' aggregation states as a putative critical factor for their antimicrobial activity. Finally, molecular dynamics simulations on a variety of conformations showed the intrinsic flexibility of these peptides in both aqueous solutions and membrane-mimetic systems
