Motion in PvuII endonuclease [pvuii]

[ jump to morphs ]

Classification [D-s-2]

Structures
1PVU [ PartsList ]
1PVI [ PartsList ]

Description
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.)
