Centrin is a calcium binding protein (CaBP) belonging to the EF‐hand superfamily. As with other proteins within this family, centrin is a calcium sensor with multiple biological target proteins. We chose to study Chlamydomonas reinhardtii centrin (Crcen) and its interaction with melittin (MLT)...
Analysis of the haloalkanoate dehalogenase superfamily (HADSF) has uncovered homologues occurring within the same organism that are found to possess broad, overlapping substrate specificities, and low catalytic efficiencies. Here we compare the HADSF phosphatase BT1666 from Bacteroides...
Single chain fragment variables (ScFvs) have been extensively employed in studying the protein–protein interactions. ScFvs derived from phage display libraries have an additional advantage of being generated against a native antigen, circumventing loss of information on conformational epitopes....
VIRus Inhibitory Peptide (VIRIP), a 20 amino acid peptide, binds to the fusion peptide (FP) of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV‐1) gp41 and blocks viral entry. VIRIP derivatives with improved antiviral activity have been developed, and one of those derivatives has recently proven...
We describe the generation of a family of high‐signal‐to‐noise single‐wavelength genetically encoded indicators for maltose. This was achieved by insertion of circularly permuted fluorescent proteins into a bacterial periplasmic binding protein (PBP), Escherichia coli...
The T‐cell receptor (TCR) interaction with antigenic peptides (p) presented by the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecule is a key determinant of immune response. In addition, TCR‐pMHC interactions offer examples of features more generally pertaining to protein‐protein recognition:...
PDZ domain is one of the abundant modular domains that recognize short peptide sequences to mediate protein–protein interactions. To decipher the binding specificity of PDZ domain, we analyzed the interactions between 11 mouse PDZ domains and 2387 peptides using a method called MIEC‐SVM,...
The peptide compstatin and its derivatives inhibit the complement‐component protein C3 in primate mammals and are potential therapeutic agents against the unregulated activation of complement in humans, but are inactive against C3 from lower mammals. Recent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations...
