The production of soluble and correctly folded eukaryotic proteins in prokaryotic systems has always been hampered by the difference in or lack of cell machinery responsible for folding, post-translation modification and secretion of the proteins involved. In the case of bovine beta-lactoglobulin (BLG), a major cow's milk allergen and a protein widely used(More)
Tyrosine phosphorylation plays an important role in many cellular and inter-cellular processes including signal transduction, subcellular localization, and regulation of enzymatic activity. In 1999, Blom et al., using the limited number of protein data bank (PDB) structures available at that time, reported that the side chain structures of phosphorylated(More)
The presumptive RNA cloverleaf at the start of the 5'-untranslated region of the picornavirus genome is an essential element in replication. Stem loop B (SLB) of the cloverleaf is a recognition site for the host polyC-binding protein, which initiates a switch from translation to replication. Here we present the solution structure of human rhinovirus isotype(More)
