In the search for increasingly accurate protein structures, technological advances are opening up new possibilities. In the last few years the wide accessibility of intense synchrotron sources, the availability of efficient 2D-detectors, and the routine use of cryo-crystallography techniques have yielded a significant number of atomic resolution protein structures. Here we review the most interesting results achieved in this field with a particular emphasis to the biological implications and to the correlation between protein geometry and conformation.

Keywords: 2-D detectors; 3D-structures; atomic resolution; cryo-crystallography; physio-chemical parameter; protein conformation; protein crystals; protein geometry; synchroton sources

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
