Exploring the conformational properties of the sequence space between two proteins with different folds: an experimental study.

We have examined the conformational properties of 27 polypeptides whose sequences are hybrids of two natural protein domains with 8 % sequence identity and different structures. One of the natural sequences (spectrin SH3 domain) was progressively mutated to get closer to the other sequence (protein G B1 domain), with the only constraint of maintaining the… CONTINUE READING
