Detection of multiple network-based allosteric interactions between peptides and arrays of DNA binding sites.

Quantitative DNase I footprinting shows that three designed peptides containing N-methylpyrrole (Py) moieties display different types of network-based allosteric communication in binding to DNA: circuit type, incomplete-circuit type, and non-circuit type characterized by interstrand bidentate interactions. Positive cooperative binding of all three peptides… CONTINUE READING
