1AMA Conformation 2 [ PartsList ]
9AAT Conformation 1 [ PartsList ]

Description
Shear motion at 2 interfaces combined with hinge in a kinked helix. The domain motion is mainly the result of just two shear motions, which occur in perpendicular directions. AAT has an active site situated between a large and a small domain, and on substrate binding the small domain closes over the active site. The major shear motion involves a 13 degree rotation of the the small domain relative to the large one. A secondary shear motion moves a helix on one side of the small domain in a direction perpendicular to both the interdomain interface and the direction of the of the other shear motion. With a 1.2 A shift and a 10 degree rotation, it drops down to cover the active site. The shear motions in AAT are facilitated by a hinge motion in a long interdomain helix. This helix is kinked by 17 degrees in the open form and changes its kink angle by 12 degrees on closure.
