Structure-activity relationship studies to probe the phosphoprotein binding site on the carboxy terminal domains of the breast cancer susceptibility gene 1.

Carboxy terminal BRCT domains of the breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1) bind to phosphorylated proteins through a pSXXF consensus recognition motif. We report a systematic structure-activity relationship study that maps the BRCT(BRCA1)-pSXXF binding interface, leading to identification of peptides with nanomolar binding affinities comparable to… (More)
