05.03.2014 // A personalized protein structure for a special birthday
The three-dimensional structure of the amino acid sequence „ANDREI-N-LVPAS“ inserted between two GCN4 adaptors is a three-helical coiled coil. Peculiarities of this structure are a bound bromide ion in the middle of the bundle and the accommodation of the amino acid proline (P), which is rarely found in natural coiled coils.
