Roles of specific and non-specific interactions in folding of beta-sheet and alpha-helical protein model systems
To get a comprehensive understanding of protein folding, the structural complexity of many proteins as well as the properties of the cellular milieu must be considered. For oligomeric proteins, not only is there polypeptide ...
Exploring the envelope of life: Folding and assembly reactions of hyper-thermostable co-chaperonin protein 10 from Aquifex aeolicus
The co-chaperonin protein 10 (cpn10) is a heptameric ring-shaped protein present in most organisms. It works in conjunction with the chaperonin protein 60 (cpn60) in an ATP-dependent process to assist folding a range of ...
Managing the copper paradox: Protein stability, copper-binding, and inter-protein interactions of copper chaperones
To minimize copper (Cu) toxicity, organisms have evolved Cu transport pathways involving soluble metallochaperones that bind, transport, and deliver Cu+ to specific partner proteins, such as Cu-ATPases. The human Cu ...
