A number of enzymes have inactive monomeric and active oligomeric forms. This suggests presence of definite interglobular contact -active site interaction in the enzymes. Although the phenomenon is widely studied in vitro as part of folding process the biological roles of the phenomenon, termed here as "activating oligomerization" are not clearly understood… CONTINUE READING
