Course Material - Section 9

We continue with Section 9 of the course ("Tertiary Structure, Part I").

Kinemages relevant to Section 9

Kinemage 3 of the Protein Tourist 2 kinemage file, by Tom Alber and Jane Richardson, illustrates the GCN4 leucine zipper peptide

Some Kinemages accompanying Chapter 2 of the Branden and Tooze book deal with supersecondary structure motifs. The Kinemage for the whole of this chapter has been split up into smaller, more manageable Kinemages by Gail Schuman of Brookhaven Structural Biology.

More info on Kinemages on the PPS Technology page.

The Tertiary Structure of Your Protein

Besides the examples described in the course material, examine the packing interactions and supersecondary structure of your allocated PDB structure. Use further structures in the PDB to examine structural elements which are not present in your own structure.

Do the instances of packing between helices and/or sheets closely match the models described, or are they significantly different? If so, how? Try and use RasMol to produce images and scripts to highlight them.
