Binding specificity of the periplasmic oligopeptide-binding protein from Escherichia coli.

The structural properties required for the binding of peptide substrates to the Escherichia coli periplasmic protein involved in oligopeptide transport were surveyed by measuring the ability of different peptides to compete for binding in an equilibrium dialysis assay with the tripeptide Ala-Phe-[3H]Gly. The protein specifically bound oligopeptides and… CONTINUE READING
