Somewhat predictably, the paper of this week is...

And by the way, have a look at the Figure 3 (Intrachromosomal repeats on human chromosome 22). I have modified the figure encircling the cluster of CYP2D genes and placed it here.

A synthetic small-molecule dithiol, (±)-trans-1,2-bis(2-mercapto-acetamido)cyclohexane (BMC), has a pKa value of 8.3 and an E°' value of -0.24 V. These values are similar to those of the protein disulfide isomerase active sites. BMC catalyses the activation of scrambled ribonuclease A, an inactive enzyme with non-native disulfide bonds, and doubles the yield of active enzyme.

Salmonella typhimurium methionine aminopeptidase is totally inactive on an N-formyl-methionyl peptide in vitro. A reporter protein expresssed in a strain lacking peptide deformylase was shown to retain the formyl group.

"Conventional wisdom has it that two proteins sharing 98.4% sequence identity have nearly identical three-dimensional structures. Here we provide a counter-example to this statement by showing that a single amino acid substitution can change the topology of a homodimeric 4-alpha-helical bundle protein".
