The systematic chirality investigations were made on the basic of the fact that zinc-binding tallysomycin (ZnTLMA) could have chiral centers (Zn, NC3, C6) at possible 4-, 5-, and 6-coordination models. Although our NMR data exhibit that the ligation sites are ${\beta}$-aminoalanine, ${\beta}$-hydroxyhistidine, and pyrimidine moiety, all possible coordination modes were tested out to see what kind of chiralities on NC3-C6 are favorable to each coordination mode. Tests were also made that take into account the specific configuration of functional groups, including ${\beta}$-aminoalanine, sugar ring, and ${\beta}$-hydroxyhistidine. Tests were finally extended to zinc-water binding and specific conformational studies by introducing various hydrogen bonding networks associated with the propionamide side chain and the carbamide group of mannose. Results of systematic chirality investigations exhibit that the S-S configuration of NC3-C6 is favorable to all of coordination models, but the R-S configuration, if exists at all, should have internal strain on C6 chiral center.
