Confrontation of AlphaFold models with experimental structures enlightens conformational dynamics supporting CYP102A1 functions

Prediction of alternate structures of CYP102A1 The competitive modelling approach was designed considering that the CYP102A1 FMNd must form alternate electron transfer complexes with the FADd and the P450d to support catalytic cycles, but that a direct electron transfer from FADd to P450d is not possible. In the dimeric structure…

Open-sourcing of protein-structure software is already paying off

Humphreys et. al. It is now relatively trivial to determine the order of amino acids in a protein. Figuring out how that order translates to a complicated three-dimensional structure that performs a specific function, however, is extremely challenging. But after decades of slow progress, Google’s DeepMind AI group announced that…
