Biochem 4000 - Lecture 5 PI

The flashcards below were created by user Ant on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. Tertiary structure
    Spatial orientation of secondary structures and side chains (and domains in multidomain proteins)
  2. Four main domain types
    • α
    • β
    • α/β
    • α+β
  3. α domain
    • Mainly α-helices
    • Bundles and orthogonal helices
  4. β
    • Mainly β-strands
    • Barrels or open sheets
  5. α/β and α+β domain differences
    • α/β is mainly parallel
    • α+β is mainly antiparallel
  6. Lone helix
    • Single helix combining into a quaternary structure (arguably a true domain)
    • - Keratin, alamethicin
  7. αα-hairpin
    • Helix-turn-helix (antiparallel)
    •  - rop protein
  8. Topology
    Pattern of connections between secondary structures and their arrangement
