Glycophorin A dimerization is driven by specific interactions between transmembrane alpha-helices.


Specific side-by-side interactions between transmembrane alpha-helices may be important in the assembly and function of integral membrane proteins. We describe a system for the genetic and biophysical analysis of these interactions. The transmembrane alpha-helical domain of interest is fused to the C-terminus of staphylococcal nuclease. The resulting… (More)
