‘Evolution in Protein Structures


Janet Thornton

(EBI Hinxton)

Abstract: Protein three dimensional structures include many patterns at all levels of structure. We are all familiar with the repeating alpha-helices and beta-strands. These combine to generate 3D motifs and superstructures, which recur in many unrelated proteins. Most recently we have focused on the evolution of structural patterns related to function, and this talk will give an overview of our knowledge in this field.
