Folding kinetics of the cooperatively folded subdomain of the IκBα ankyrin repeat domain
(Academic Press Ltd - Elsevier Science Ltd, 2011-04)
The ankyrin repeat (AR) domain of IκBα consists of a cooperative folding unit of roughly four ARs (AR1-AR4) and of two weakly folded repeats (AR5 and AR6). The kinetic folding mechanism of the cooperative subdomain, IκBα ...
The energy cost of polypeptide knot formation and its folding consequences
(Springer Nature, 2017)
Knots are natural topologies of chains. Yet, little is known about spontaneous knot formation in a polypeptide chain-an event that can potentially impair its folding-and about the effect of a knot on the stability and ...
Peptide and protein folding
(Elsevier Science, 2001-03-12)
Ab initio peptide folding, and its role in the reductionistic approach towards the understanding of protein folding are discussed from the points of view of past, present and possible future developments. It is believed ...
Dynamics of one-state downhill protein folding
(National Academy of Sciences, 2009-01)
The small helical protein BBL has been shown to fold and unfold in the absence of a free energy barrier according to a battery of quantitative criteria in equilibrium experiments, including probe-dependent equilibrium ...
Artificial Itelligence Teaches Drugs to Target Proteins by Tackling the Induced Folding Problem
(American Chemical Society, 2020-06-17)
We explore the possibility of a deep learning (DL) platform that steers drug design to target proteins by inducing binding-competent conformations. We deal with the fact that target proteins are usually not fixed targets ...
Equilibrium partially folded states of B. licheniformis β -lactamase
훽-Lactamases (penicillinases) facilitate bacterial resistance to antibiotics and are excellent theoretical and experimental models in protein structure, dynamics and evolution. Bacillus licheniformis exo-small penicillinase ...
Frustration, function and folding
(Current Biology, 2018-02-05)
Natural protein molecules are exceptional polymers. Encoded in apparently random strings of amino-acids, these objects perform clear physical tasks that are rare to find by simple chance. Accurate folding, specific binding, ...
Topology to geometry in protein folding: β-Lactoglobulin
(National Academy of Sciences, 2000)
Intrinsic disorder associated with 14-3-3 proteins and their partners
Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) mediate a variety of cellular processes and form complex networks, where connectivity is achieved owing to the “hub” proteins whose interaction with multiple protein partners is facilitated ...
Knots can impair protein degradation by ATP-dependent proteases
(National Academy of Sciences, 2017)
ATP-dependent proteases translocate proteins through a narrow pore for their controlled destruction. However, how a protein substrate containing a knotted topology affects this process remains unknown. Here, we characterized ...
