Abstract:C-terminal fragment of the Botulinum neurotoxin A comprises two sub-domains including HC-N and HC-C. Here, the conformational change of HC-N was studied by spectroscopic techniques. The results indicated that the partially unfolded state forms during unfolding of HC-N. This finding may shed light on poorly - known features of the protein.

- 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.
