PPS - Week 18
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.

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.
