Motion in S. cerevisiae PPR1 Zn-finger DNA recognition protein. [ppr1]

[ jump to morphs ]

Classification Known Subunit Motion, Not Involving Allostery [S-n-2]

1PYI PPR1-DNA complex, S. cerevisiae [ PartsList ]

GAL-anaologous Zn-finger DNA binding protein. Structure solved complex to 14-bp consensus DNA sequence in 1994. Upon binding DNA, PPR1 dimerizes into asymmetric coiled coiled homodimer. Protein motion may be simulated by superimposing one bound asymmetric homodimer onto another, as in Figure 6 of Marmorstein et al. Alternatively, may be compared with unbound monomer (structure?) or GAL4, with which it is homologous.
