Speaker: Professor Lynne Regan
In contrast to globular proteins, repeat proteins lack interactions between residues distant in the sequence. The dominance of local interactions has made this class of protein very amenable to a systematic dissection of structure and folding. I will present a variety of our results, which illuminate features specific to repeat proteins in addition to more general properties of proteins. Finally, I will talk about the ligand-binding function of TPR repeat proteins, and will show how that can be engineered for a variety of applications - both in vitro and in vivo.
