Unformatted text preview: Linear Polarization
A plane electromagnetic wave is said to be linearly polarized. The transverse electric field wave is accompanied by a magnetic field wave as illustrated. Protein receptors have domains created by polypeptides. The binding domains are complementary in shape to the substrate and possess an array of strategically positioned functional groups that enter into numerous weak binding interactions of the substrate. Cathepsin D The active site of cathepsin D (PDB entry: 1lya) is shown here bound to an inhibitor, pepstatin. P...
