    TatD is an evolutionarily conserved protein with thousands of homologues in all kingdoms of life. It has been suggested that TatD participates in DNA fragmentation during apoptosis in eukaryotic cells. However, the cellular functions and biochemical properties of TatD in bacterial and...

    Residues expected to play key roles in the stabilization of proteins [stabilizing residues (SRs)] are selected by combining several methods based mainly on the interactions of a given residue with its spatial, rather than its sequential neighborhood and by considering the evolutionary...

    The application of fractal dimension-based constructs to probe the protein interior dates back to the development of the concept of fractal dimension itself. Numerous approaches have been tried and tested over a course of (almost) 30 years with the aim of elucidating the various facets of...

    Seminal fluid proteins are critical for male reproductive success. This paper describes a new method to identify these proteins in recently mated females and details their dynamic evolutionary histories.

    What is the best way to identify regulatory DNA sequences such as enhancers, promoters, insulators and silencers? A new study shows that specific binding by a coactivator protein identifies enhancers that are invisible to common detection methods based on evolutionary constraint.

    The computational protein design protocol Rosetta has been applied successfully to a wide variety of protein engineering problems. Here the aim was to test its ability to design de novo a protein adopting the TIM-barrel fold, whose formation requires about twice as many residues as in the...

    Motivation: The limited availability of protein structures often restricts the functional annotation of proteins and the identification of their protein–protein interaction sites. Computational methods to identify interaction sites from protein sequences alone are, therefore, required for...

    A new method was developed for identifying amyloidogenic regions in protein chains. The formation of amyloid fibrils was attributed to protein regions enriched in residues with a high expected packing density. Predictions consistent with experimental findings were obtained for 8 out of 11...
