A growing number of diverse proteins are being identified that moonlight. Moonlighting proteins comprise an interesting subset of multifunctional proteins in which the two functions are found in a single polypeptide chain. They do not include proteins that are multifunctional due to gene fusions, families of homologous proteins, splice variants, or promiscuous enzyme activities. This review summarizes recent discoveries that add to the list of known moonlighting proteins. They include several… CONTINUE READING
