There are two classes of tandem repeats in proteins - globular and non-globular. There are two subclasses of non-globular repeats. The first, such as collagen, form stable helices. Members of the second are flexible and somewhat disordered both in vitro and in vivo. This review focuses on this second subclass.

Keywords: Tandem repeats; concerted evolution; intrinsically unstructured protein; ligand interaction; rapid evolution; structural change

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.
