The catalytic regions of Protein Kinases are known to have similarity in primary chains. However, it is not known whether there is a signature profile specific to a particular catalytic region? Whether the signature profile, if any, is unique to a protein kinases family in a particular species or in a group of species? We have attempted analyzing some of these aspects by statistical data mining using an authentic and exhaustive database of Protein Kinases. The results reveal interesting features and provide some new directions to look at their applications.
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.
