Abstract:

Plastocyanin was purified from the gymnosperm Ginkgo biloba L., and its complete amino acid sequence was determined. The protein was shown to contain Phe-83 instead of Tyr-83 conserved in other land plant plastocyanins. This is the first report of the characterization and complete amino acid sequence of a gymnosperm plastocyanin.

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.
