Abstract:This study indicated that the N-terminus was dispensable for FtsY GTPase activity, and that the N-domain plays an essential role in the GTPase activity of the NG domain. In addition, the S.scoelicolor FtsY was able to restore function in an E. coli mutant. However, its NG domain was unable to play any roles.

- 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.
