4cpa: Creativity in the SHOP

In moments of boredom or concern, seeing how beautiful the structures of nature are can reassure and inspire! I went back to my favourite molecules and selected some protein structures to bring some dynamism and creativity in our SHOP. Have a look at the NEW items with this protein!

This crystal structure belongs to the POTATO CARBOXYPEPTIDASE … one of the nemesis of proteins, argh!!

REFINED CRYSTAL STRUCTURE OF THE POTATO INHIBITOR COMPLEX OF CARBOXYPEPTIDASE A AT 2.5 ANGSTROMS RESOLUTION

A carboxypeptidase is a protease enzyme that hydrolyzes (cleaves) a peptide bond at the carboxy-terminal (C-terminal) end of a protein or peptide. This is in contrast to an aminopeptidases, which cleave peptide bonds at the N-terminus of proteins. Humans, animals, bacteria and plants contain several types of carboxypeptidases that have diverse functions ranging from catabolism to protein maturation.(read more DOI: 10.1038/nature06956 and Wikipedia)
