2w9p: 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 multicystatin … such a surprising vegetable.

Potato Multicystatin

Potato (Solanum tuberosum) multicystatin an inhibitor of protease of the family Cys protease and found in the subphellogen layer of potato tubers. In contrast with cystatins from other plant and animal sources, this protein has a high molecular mass of 85 kDa/monomer, compared to 8 or 25 kDa. It can also bind and inhibit several Cys proteases (e.g., papain) simultaneously, and the term multicystatin thus refers to its multiple inhibitory domains (read more DOI: 10.1105/tpc.108.064717 and doi: 10.1105/tpc.108.064717)

This crystal structure belongs to the Possum Milk Whey Lipocalin Trichosurin such a lovely animal, right?

  • PubMed Abstract: 

Lipocalins are extracellular proteins (17-25 kDa) that bind and transport small lipophilic molecules. Trichosurin, a protein from the milk whey of the common brushtail possum (read more DOI: 10.1042/BJ20070567 or PMC2049081/)

This crystal structure belongs to the Beta-Lactoglobulin that is a protein we find in our cappuccino or mozzarella. Pretty-looking, right?

β-Lactoglobulin is the major whey protein of cow and sheep‘s milk (~3 g/l), and is also present in many other mammalian species; a notable exception being humans. no clear function has been identified for β-lactoglobulin, this despite its being the biggest part of the fractional composition of the globular proteins isolated from whey (read moreDOI: 10.1021/bi0362469 or Wikipedia)
