EMERGENT NETWORK ORGANIZATION IN LINEAR AND DENDRITIC ACTIN NETWORKS REVEALED BY MECHANOCHEMICAL SIMULATIONS
Cells employ networks of filamentous biopolymers to achieve shape changes and exert migratory forces. As the networks offer structural integrity to a cell, they are referred to as the cytoskeleton. Actin is an essential ...
EPIGENETICS TUNE CHROMATIN MECHANICS, A COMPUTATIONAL APPROACH
The base unit of DNA packaging in eukaryotes, the nucleosome, is adaptively modified for epigenetic control. Given the vast chemical space of chromatin and complexity of signaling and expression, much of our knowledge about ...
PLASTICITY IN PROTEIN SEQUENCE-FUNCTION RELATIONSHIPS
Allostery is defined as the functional regulation at one site in a protein by activity at a distant site. Because of the ubiquitous occurrence and diverse cellular roles of allosteric proteins, designing novel allosteric ...
Structural and Biophysical Characterization of Homo Sapiens RIOK2 in Complex with Selective Prostate Cancer Inhibitors and its Transition State Complex
Homo sapiens Riok2 (HsRiok2) is an atypical, Ser/Thr protein kinase that has been implicated in a number of cancers, including Prostate Cancer. More recently, evidence has shown that HsRiok2 plays a biological role in the ...
BIOCHEMICAL AND STRUCTURAL CHARACTERIZATION OF NUSG PARALOG LOAP
The NusG family of transcription factors is the only universally conserved family of transcription elongation regulators in all three domains of life. NusG proteins exert ubiquitous genetic regulatory effects by reversibly ...
BIOPHYSICAL STUDIES OF UBIQUITIN: FROM FOLDING TO PROTEIN ENGINEERING
The signaling protein ubiquitin is known for its ubiquity — existing in nearly all cel- lular compartments, holding a prominent role in major cellular signaling pathways and serving as a model system for protein folding. ...
