Protein folds and functions

Andrew CR Martin, Christine A Orengo, E Gail Hutchinson, Susan Jones, Maria Karmirantzou, Roman A Laskowski, John BO Mitchell, Chiara Taroni, Janet M Thornton
1998 Structure  
Conclusions: The availability of structural classification data has enabled this novel overview analysis.  ...  These distributions have been examined in the light of protein function and bound ligand.  ...  Whereas the presence of a disulphide bridge (which can be derived directly from the coordinates) is a reliable indicator of extracellular location, the absence of a disulphide bridge does not necessarily  ...

Large-scale prediction of disulphide bridges using kernel methods, two-dimensional recursive neural networks, and weighted graph matching

Jianlin Cheng, Hiroto Saigo, Pierre Baldi
2005 Proteins: Structure, Function, and Bioinformatics  
Here, we develop new methods for predicting disulphide bridges in proteins. We first build a large curated data set of proteins containing disulphide bridges to extract relevant statistics.  ...  The formation of disulphide bridges between cysteines plays an important role in protein folding, structure, function, and evolution.  ...  Thus, it is desirable to be able to classify protein chains into those containing disulphide bridges and those that are entirely devoid of disulphide bridges (chain classification).  ...

Alphaherpesvirinae and Gammaherpesvirinae glycoprotein L and CMV UL130 originate from chemokines

Maja Malkowska, Katarzyna Kokoszynska, Magdalena Dymecka, Leszek Rychlewski, Lucjan S Wyrwicz
2013 Virology Journal  
The process of herpesvirus transmission is mediated by a range of proteins, one of which is glycoprotein L (gL).  ...  We conclude that the further understanding of the function of viral chemokine-like proteins in Herpesviridae infection may lead to development of novel prophylactic and therapeutic treatment.  ...  The conserved topology is a result of the presence of two cysteine bridges (see Figure 1 ).  ...
