High impact information on Protein Structure, Secondary

  • Direct sequencing of the RT-PCR products revealed the occurrence of a variant MT-1H isoform with changes in amino acid residues in the protein sequence and notable differences in the predicted secondary protein structure [1].
  • Both X-34 and thioflavin-S staining were eliminated by formic acid pretreatment, suggesting that beta-sheet secondary protein structure is a necessary determinant of staining [2].
  • We have confirmed that it is a member of the family of LIM proteins that share a similar secondary protein structure, renamed as Four-and-a-Half-LIM domain (or FHL) proteins in accordance with this structure [3].
  • Denaturation measurements of free HSA and HSA in the presence of dirhodium(II) acetate complex with 8-M urea followed by CD spectroscopy, suggest that rhodium affects the secondary protein structure and might stabilize HSA against denaturing agents [4].
  • Diffraction lines related to the side-by-side lipid packing arrangements in the intercellular bilayers were identified as were patterns arising from secondary protein structures in intracellular keratin [5].
