Protein-protein interactions are often mediated by flexible loops that experience conformational dynamics on the microsecond to millisecond time scales. NMR relaxation studies can map these dynamics. However, defining the network of inter-converting conformers that underlie the relaxation data remains generally challenging. Here, we combine NMR relaxation(More)
INTRODUCTION The MSIS-29 was developed to assess the physical and psychological impact of MS. The aims of this study were to use the responses to the MSIS-29 via the web portal of the UK MS Register to: examine the internal properties of the scale delivered via the internet, profile the cohort, and assess how well the scale measures impact of disability on(More)
INTRODUCTION The EQ-5D is a widely-used, standardised, quality of life measure producing health profiles, indices and states. The aims of this study were to assess the role of various factors in how people with Multiple Sclerosis rate their quality of life, based on responses to the EQ-5D received via the web portal of the UK MS Register. METHODS The 4516(More)
Pin1 is an essential mitotic regulator consisting of a peptidyl-prolyl isomerase (PPIase) domain flexibly tethered to a smaller Trp-Trp (WW) binding domain. Communication between these domains is important for Pin1 in vivo activity; however, the atomic basis for this communication has remained elusive. Our previous nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies(More)
Computationally complex and data intensive atomic scale biomolecular simulation is enabled via processing in network storage (PINS): a novel distributed system framework to overcome bandwidth, compute, storage, organizational, and security challenges inherent to the wide-area computation and storage grid. PINS is presented as an effective and scal-able(More)
Signaling proteins often sequester complementary functional sites in separate domains. How do the different domains communicate with one another? An attractive system to address this question is the mitotic regulator, human Pin1 (Lu et al., Nature 380:544–547, 1996). Pin-1 consists of two mutually tethered domains: a WW domain for substrate binding and a(More)
INTRODUCTION People with Multiple Sclerosis are known to have a relatively high prevalence of both anxiety and depression. Studies of the relationship between physical disability and mental health in people with MS have reported mixed results, showing the need for further work. METHODS Between May 2011 and April 2012, 4516 people completed the MSIS-29(More)
Computationally complex and data intensive atomic scale biomolecular simulation is enabled via processing in network storage (PINS): a novel distributed system framework to overcome bandwidth, compute, storage, and security challenges inherent to the wide area computation and storage grid. High throughput data generation requirements for our scientific(More)
Distance geometry is a technique widely used to find atomic coordinates that agree with given upper and lower bounds on the interatomic distances. It is successful because it chooses at random some relatively good "trial coordinates" that take into account the whole molecule and all constraints at once. Customarily, these trial coordinates must be refined(More)
