Example sentences for: amide

How can you use “amide” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • 3) It displays an amide group that occupies a cavity not filled by nicotine or acetylcholine, and makes a network of hydrogen bonds with the indole nitrogen of alpha4-Trp182, the backbone carbonyl of beta2-Ser133 and beta2-Phe144, and with the backbone nitrogen of beta2-Leu146 (Figure 5B).

  • Of these, the strand that immediately follows the strand with the conserved histidine, contains a conserved polar residue (either histidine or an acidic or amide residue).

  • Less strong Lewis bases are the charge-compensated Glu in an ion-pair with Arg, the amide group of Gln and Asn, and finally the carbonyl of the peptide backbone as the weakest [ 29 ] . The importance of the ligand was demonstrated by substitution of His with the weaker Lewis base Asn in the apoprotein of the bacterial light-harvesting complex LH1, which eliminated assembly of the complex in vivo and reconstitution in vitro [ 30 ] . Formation of a stable coordination bond with a weaker Lewis base is expected to require a stronger Lewis acid.

  • Interestingly, a small polar cleft next to this oxygen could accommodate a water molecule coordinated by two hydrogen bond donors -alpha4 Trp182 indole nitrogen and beta2 Leu146 amide nitrogen- and one hydrogen bond acceptor -beta2 Ser133 carbonyl (Figure 3- Left).

  • Taxol includes ten polar functionalities: five 3-atom units (four esters, one amide) and five 1- or 2-atom units (three OHs, one ether, one C9 carbonyl).
