Specific molecular interactions involved in catalysis by antibody 6D9 were investigated by site-directed mutagenesis. The catalytic antibody 6D9, which was generated against a transition state analog (III), hydrolyzes a non-bioactive chloramphenicol monoester derivative (I) to produce chloramphenicol (II). Construction of a three-dimensional molecular model(More)
The problem of protein side-chain packing for a given backbone trace is investigated using 3 different prediction models. The first requires an exhaustive search of all possible combinations of side-chain conformers, using the dead-end elimination theorem. The second considers only side-chain-backbone interactions, whereas the third neglects(More)
The three-dimensional structure of ferredoxin, purified from the thermophilic cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus, was determined in aqueous solution by two-dimensional proton nuclear magnetic resonance. In addition to the 946 distance constraints from nuclear Overhauser effect connectivities, we added 241 distance constraints derived from the crystal(More)
CRK is a human homolog of chichen v-Crk, which is an adaptor protein. The SH2 domain of CRK binds to several tyrosine-phosphorylated proteins, including the epidermal growth factor receptor, p130(Cas), Shc, and paxillin. The SH3 domain, in turn, binds to cytosolic proteins of 135-145, 160, 180, and 220 kDa. We screened expression libraries by Far Western(More)
