ABSTRACT
Stepwise-cleavage process of promastoparans to reach maturity was investigated theoretically by combining ab initio folding and unbounded docking. The comparison between the structures of the promastoparans both before and after docking were examined along with the hydrogen bonding interaction pattern between the dipetidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) and promastoparans to reveal how the endpoint of this stepwise cleavage is recognized among these promastoparans with highly resemble amino acid sequences. The current approach of folding and docking study provides structural insight on the stepwise cleavage process.
