Residues controlling the function and stability of the CD corner in myoglobin and hemoglobin
All globins consist of eight $\alpha$ helices labelled A through H and connected by loop regions, except mammalian $\alpha$ globins which lack a D helix. Myoglobin is used as a simple model for the study of the hemoglobin ...
The structural determinants of myoglobin stability
A quantitative understanding of the stability and expression of hemoglobins and myoglobins must take into account all of the factors which govern heme affinity and the folding of the globin portions of the molecules. In ...
Structure of tropomyosin at 7A resolution
The crystal structure of tropomyosin has been determined by X-ray diffraction analysis at 7A resolution. Tropomyosin is a 400A-long muscle regulatory protein that consists of two parallel 33,000 Dalton alpha helices wound ...
A comparative study of the membrane-active beta-sheet peptide protegrin with the alpha-helical peptide alamethicin
The interactions of the membrane-active peptides alamethicin and protegrin with lipid bilayers are studied. The influence of the bilayer composition on the orientation transition of alamethicin is studied using oriented ...
