An analogue of human Growth Hormone [6-13] has been prepared incorporating a d-Ala11-Pro12 dipeptide unit to induce a type II′ β-turn conformation. Similar hypoglycaemic activity has been observed to that of the aspartimide-containing analogue Asu11-hGH[6-13], indicating conservation of bioactive conformation properties.
