    Motivation: Circular permutation is an important type of protein rearrangement. Natural circular permutations have implications for protein function, stability and evolution. Artificial circular permutations have also been used for protein studies. However, such relationships are difficult to...

    Circular permutation is a common molecular mechanism for evolution of proteins. However, such re-arrangement of secondary structure connectivity may interfere with the folding mechanism causing accumulation of folding intermediates, which in turn can lead to misfolding. We solved the crystal...

    Many methods have been developed to analyse protein sequences and structures, although less work has been undertaken describing and comparing protein surfaces. Evolution can lead sequences to diverge or structures to change topology; nevertheless, surface determinants that are essential to...

    Material remains of ancestor nucleotides and proteins are largely unavailable, thus sequence comparison among homologous genes in present-day organisms forms the core of current knowledge of molecular evolution. Variation in protein three-dimensional structure is a basis for functional...

    Circular permutation (CP) in a protein can be considered as if its sequence were circularized followed by a creation of termini at a new location. Since the first observation of CP in 1979, a substantial number of studies have concluded that circular permutants (CPs) usually retain native...

    Potato type II serine proteinase inhibitors are proteins that consist of multiple sequence repeats, and exhibit a multidomain structure. The structural domains are circular permutations of the repeat sequence, as a result of intramolecular domain swapping. Structural studies give indications for...

    Background: Protein pairs that have the same secondary structure packing arrangement but have different topologies have attracted much attention in terms of both evolution and physical chemistry of protein structures. Further investigation of such protein relationships would give us a hint as to...

  • Detecting Clusters of Mutations. Tong Zhou; Enyeart, Peter J.; Wilke, Claus O. // PLoS ONE;2008, Vol. 3 Issue 11, p1 

    Positive selection for protein function can lead to multiple mutations within a small stretch of DNA, i.e., to a cluster of mutations. Recently, Wagner proposed a method to detect such mutation clusters. His method, however, did not take into account that residues with high solvent accessibility...

    Generating diverse protein libraries that contain improved variants at a sufficiently high frequency is critical for improving the properties of proteins using directed evolution. Many studies have illustrated how random mutagenesis, cassette mutagenesis, DNA shuffling and similar approaches are...
