The presence of extensive reciprocal conformational freedom between the catalytic and the hemopexin-like domains of full-length matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) is demonstrated by NMR and small angle x-ray scattering experiments. This finding is discussed in relation to the essentiality of the hemopexin-like domain for the collagenolytic activity of(More)
For several drug leads obtained by tethering weak binding ligands, the dissociation constant is smaller than the product of those of the individual fragments by a factor named the linking coefficient, E. This favorable contribution is attributed to the entropic gain that is realized when two weak binding ligands are tethered. Here we show a case study where(More)
