Conformational stabilities of Escherichia coli RNase HI variants with a series of amino acid substitutions at a cavity within the hydrophobic core.


Escherichia coli ribonuclease HI has a cavity within the hydrophobic core. Two core residues, Ala52 and Val74, resided at both ends of this cavity. We have constructed a series of single mutant proteins at Ala52, and double mutant proteins, in which Ala52 was replaced by Gly, Val, Ile, Leu, or Phe, and Val74 was replaced by Ala or Leu. All of these mutant… (More)
