S-Adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase (SAHH) is an enzyme regulating intracellular methylation reactions. The homotetrameric SAHH exists in an open conformation in absence of substrate, while enzyme:inhibitor complexes crystallize in the closed conformation, in which the ligands are engulfed by the protein due to an 18 degrees domain reorientation within each(More)
By theoretical conformational investigations of substrates and nonsubstrates of the enzyme dipeptidyl-peptidase IV (DP IV) as well as dipeptide-esters using the ECEPP83 method we determined the structure of peptides recognized and cleaved by the enzyme. From a comparison of all possible structures for the substrates with conformations not possible in(More)
