We examine the relationship between binding affinity and interface size for reversible protein-protein interactions (PPIs), using cytokines from the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily and their receptors as a test case. Using surface plasmon resonance, we measured single-site binding affinities for binding of the large receptor TNFR1 to its ligands(More)
NEMO (NF-κB essential modulator) associates with catalytic subunits IKKα and IKKβ to form the IκB kinase (IKK) complex and is a key regulator of NF-κB pathway signaling. Biochemical and structural characterization of NEMO has been challenging, however, leading to conflicting data about basic biochemical properties such as the oligomeric state of active NEMO(More)
We report a comprehensive analysis of binding energy hot spots at the protein-protein interaction (PPI) interface between nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) essential modulator (NEMO) and IκB kinase subunit β (IKKβ), an interaction that is critical for NF-κB pathway signaling, using experimental alanine scanning mutagenesis and also the FTMap method for(More)
