Recognition by the T-cell receptor (TCR) of immunogenic peptides presented by class I major histocompatibility complexes (MHCs) is the determining event in the specific cellular immune response against virus-infected cells or tumor cells. It is of great interest, therefore, to elucidate the...
Like protein enzymes, catalytic RNAs contain conserved structure motifs important for function. A universal feature of the catalytic domain of ribonuclease P RNA is a bulged-helix motif within the P1–P4 helix junction. Here, we show that changes in bulged nucleotide identity and position within...
The 3D structure of the flavoprotein d -amino acid oxidase (DAAO) from the yeast Rhodotorula gracilis (RgDAAO) in complex with the competitive inhibitor anthranilate was solved (resolution 1.9 Å) and structural features relevant for the overall conformation and for catalytic activity are...
Structural analyses on a small number of protein families have shown that residues in protein interfaces are more conserved than average amino acid residues. This is also true of other ligand-binding and active site residues. This raises the question whether protein interactions place additional...
We investigated the Pvu II endonuclease with its cognate DNA by means of molecular dynamics simulations. Comparing the complexed DNA with a reference simulation of free DNA, we saw structural changes at the scissile phosphodiester bond. At this GpC step, the enzyme induces the highest twist and...
Bacteriorhodopsin, the sole membrane protein of the purple membrane of Halobacterium salinarum , functions as a light-driven proton pump. A 3-D crystal of bacteriorhodopsin, which was prepared by the membrane fusion method, was used to investigate structural changes in the primary photoreaction....
The mechanism by which Escherichia coli RecBCD DNA helicase unwinds duplex DNA was examined in vitro using pre-steady-state chemical quenched-flow kinetic methods. Single turnover DNA unwinding experiments were performed by addition of ATP to RecBCD that was pre-bound to a series of DNA...
The nucleotide sequence and crystal structure of chum salmon trypsin (CST) are now reported. The cDNA isolated from the pyloric caeca of chum salmon encodes 222 amino acid residues, the same number of residues as the anionic Atlantic salmon trypsin (AST), but one residue less than bovine...
