Motion in PvuII endonuclease [pvuii]

[ jump to morphs ]

Classification [D-s-2]

1PVU [ PartsList ]
1PVI [ PartsList ]

Motion occurs in the dimer upon binding of DNA. Long helices link monomers, and remain stationary while the larger domains clamp onto the DNA helix. (This motion appears to be a hinged fragment when only one subunit is examined.)
