Unformatted text preview: 6. Are hydrophobic interactions important for the proteins structure? Where are these abundant? 7. Is the 1D66 protein an acidic protein, a neutral protein, or a basic protein? Why? (Try Charge representation to help visualize this problem.) 8. Compare primary amino acid sequences for the proteins involved. What do you note? 9. Does this structure show ordered water molecules? How many? Where are they located? 10. Do the protein(s) involved have a prosthetic group(s)? If so, what? How much? 11. Are hydrophobic interactions important for anchoring this prosthetic group(s) to the host protein (also known as the apoprotein)? Please explain your conclusion. 12. Use your mouse wheel to zoom in. Which amino acid R-groups form a coordination cage around these prosthetic group(s)? Number their positions in polypeptide chain(s)....
