Structure and function of bacterial cold shock proteins
Abstract.Cold shock proteins (Csps) comprise a family of small proteins that are structurally highly conserved and bind to single-stranded nucleic acids via their nucleic acid binding motifs RNP1 andExpand
Conformational States of Human Rat Sarcoma (Ras) Protein Complexed with Its Natural Ligand GTP and Their Role for Effector Interaction and GTP Hydrolysis*
The guanine nucleotide-binding protein Ras exists in solution in two different conformational states when complexed with different GTP analogs such as GppNHp or GppCH2p. State 1 has only a very lowExpand
Combined chemical shift changes and amino acid specific chemical shift mapping of protein–protein interactions
Protein–protein interactions are often studied by chemical shift mapping using solution NMR spectroscopy. When heteronuclear data are available the interaction interface is usually predicted byExpand
Conformational transitions in p21ras and in its complexes with the effector protein Raf-RBD and the GTPase activating protein GAP.
31P NMR revealed that the complex of p21ras with the GTP analog GppNHp.Mg2+ exists in two conformational states, states 1 and 2. In wild-type p21ras the equilibrium constant K1(12) between the twoExpand
The recombinant dehydrin-like desiccation stress protein from the resurrection plant Craterostigma plantagineum displays no defined three-dimensional structure in its native state.
Dehydration stress in the drought-tolerant resurrection plant Craterostigma plantagineum is accompanied by the accumulation of a large number of desiccation stress proteins (Dsp). One abundant classExpand
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 Nef protein is incorporated into virus particles and specifically cleaved by the viral proteinase.
The Nef protein of primate immunodeficiency viruses is essential for establishing a highly productive pathogenic infection in vivo. In tissue culture, Nef is not required for infection but enhancesExpand
Dynamic properties of the Ras switch I region and its importance for binding to effectors
We have investigated the dynamic properties of the switch I region of the GTP-binding protein Ras by using mutants of Thr-35, an invariant residue necessary for the switch function. Here we show thatExpand
Structure of the anchor-domain of myristoylated and non-myristoylated HIV-1 Nef protein.
Negative factor (Nef) is a regulatory myristoylated protein of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that has a two-domain structure consisting of an anchor domain and a core domain separated by aExpand
