Hydrophobic mismatch print that page


Membrane hydrophobic mismatch is the difference between the hydrophobic length of α helices of the integral proteins and the hydrophobic thickness of the membrane they span [ 1 ] . Under the consideration of energy requirement, in order to avoid unfavorable exposure of hydrophobic

Hydrophobic effect print that page


The hydrophobic effect is the observed tendency of nonpolar substances to aggregate in aqueous solution and exclude water molecules. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The name, literally meaning "water-fearing," describes the segregation and apparent repulsion between water and nonpolar substances. The hydrophobic

Hydrophobic collapse print that page

Partial hydrophobic collapse is an experimentally accepted model for the folding kinetics of many globular proteins, such as myoglobin , [ 1 ] alpha-lactalbumin , [ 2 ] barstar , [ 3 ] and staphylococcal nuclease . [ 4 ] However, because experimental evidence of early folding events | 2011/4/26 17:31:13

Hydrophobic-polar protein folding model print that page

The hydrophobic -polar protein folding model is a highly simplified model for examining protein folds in space. First proposed by Dill in 1985, it is motivated by the observation that hydrophobic interactions between amino acid residues are the driving force for proteins folding into their | 2010/9/25 14:53:00

FKBP print that page

FKBP12 is notable in humans for binding the immunosuppressant molecule tacrolimus (originally designated FK506), which is used in treating patients after organ transplant and patients suffering from autoimmune disorders. [ 3 ] Tacrolimus has been found to reduce episodes of organ rejection | 2010/9/27 3:13:35

Lipid bilayer print that page


Natural bilayers are usually made mostly of phospholipids , which have a hydrophilic head and two hydrophobic tails. When phospholipids are exposed to water, they arrange themselves into a two-layered sheet (a bilayer) with all of their tails pointing toward the center of the sheet. The center

Enzyme print that page


Like all catalysts, enzymes work by lowering the activation energy ( E a ‡ ) for a reaction, thus dramatically increasing the rate of the reaction. As a result, products are formed faster and reactions reach their equilibrium state more rapidly. Most enzyme reaction rates are millions of
