As a part of molecular recognition studies on auxins, the growth-promoting activities of ring-alkylated (alkyl = 4-, 5-, 6-, or 7-methyl, 4- or 5-ethyl, 5-n-propyl, or 5-n-butyl) indole-3-acetic acids in the Avena coleoptile straight-growth assay were determined and correlated with structural parameters. While half-optimal concentrations were between 4.5 and 6.0 micromol/L for all compounds examined, the elongation response at the optimal concentration decreased notably as the length of the alkyl chain increased. The configurations of the auxin molecules were determined by X-ray diffraction analysis in the crystalline state and are unlikely to change in solution, or at the active site of an auxin receptor. The conformations of the CH_2COOH moiety (hypothesized to be of critical importance for biological activity) and of the higher-alkyl chains, in a physiological environment, cannot be predicted from crystallographic data. Molecular mechanics and dynamics simulations reveal, however, that the energy barriers between the individual conformers do not exceed a level of several kcal/mol, and are thus of the same order of magnitude as weak intermolecular interac! tions, such as van der Waals forces and hydrogen bonding.
