Specific protein–protein interactions are essential for the precise transmission of information in eukaryotic signal transduction pathways. Surprisingly, however, only a small number of modular protein recognition domains mediate the majority of protein–protein connections1–3. Some of the most common classes of modular recognition domains are those that recognize proline-rich motifs4. These domain families include, among others, SH3, EVH1 and WW domains. The importance of this class of… CONTINUE READING
