    The nonstructural protein 3 (NS3) from the hepatitis C virus (HCV) is responsible for processing the non-structural region of the viral precursor polyprotein in infected hepatic cells. NS3 protease activity, located at the N-terminal domain, is a zinc-dependent serine protease. A zinc ion,...

    In molecular recognition, it is often the case that ligand binding is coupled to conformational change in one or both of the binding partners. Two hypotheses describe the limiting cases involved; the first is the induced fit and the second is the conformational selection model. The...

    Many proteins undergo a conformational transition upon binding to their cognate binding partner, with intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) providing an extreme example in which a folding transition occurs. However, it is often not clear whether this occurs via an "induced fit" or...

    The tumour suppressor protein p53 is a sequence-specific transcription factor that coordinates one molecule of zinc in the core domain. In our recent study, magnesium can also bind to the p53DBD and enhance its DNA-binding activity. In this study, a systematic analysis of the conformation and...

    Prion diseases are caused by misfolding of the cellular prion protein, PrPC. In vitro studies have shown that PrP binds copper via the octarepeat region lying within the unstructured N-terminal segment of the protein, but the significance of copper in PrP metabolism remains unclear. Here, six...

  • Local Conformational Changes in the DNA Interfaces of Proteins. Sunami, Tomoko; Kono, Hidetoshi // PLoS ONE;Feb2013, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p1 

    When a protein binds to DNA, a conformational change is often induced so that the protein will fit into the DNA structure. Therefore, quantitative analyses were conducted to understand the conformational changes in proteins. The results showed that conformational changes in DNA interfaces are...
