Crystallographic data of the dimeric and octameric forms of fragaceatoxin C (FraC) suggested the key role of a small hydrophobic protein-protein interaction surface for actinoporins oligomerization and pore formation in membranes. However, site-directed mutagenesis studies supporting this hypothesis for others actinoporins are still lacking. Here, we(More)
Gene duplication results in extra copies of genes that must coevolve with their interacting partners in multimeric protein complexes. The cardiac troponin (Tn) complex, containing TnC, TnI, and TnT, forms a distinct functional unit critical for the regulation of cardiac muscle contraction. In teleost fish, the function of the Tn complex is modified by the(More)
