Introduction to Protein Structure gives an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full color top illuminate the structural principles described in the text. The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide variety of biological functions. The book ends with chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.G proteins are molecular amplifiers for a large number of seven-transmembrane helix receptors that regulate responses like vision, smell and stress response. ... due to the presence of an intrinsic corresponding Arg, is regulated by proteins that affect the conformation of the switch regions. ... SH2 and SH3 domains recognize short peptide sequences containing phosphotyrosine and proline-rich regions, anbsp;...
