- Hydration of bradykinin and LHRH was studied by experiment and molecular
modeling. Results are briefly discussed in the context of zwitterions
on our zwitterion web
page. Experimental hydration results on bradykinin, LHRH, and neurotensin
and some aspects of the modeling results on bradykinin and LHRH are
covered in the following two publications.
