Part A (10 points) Shown below are short segments of three proteins, containing only the amino acids D, F, G, L and K. Protein 1: DFGLLKDGG Protein 2: KFDFKDGKD Protein 3: LGLFDFLGF Protein 1 is evolutionary related to only one of the two other proteins (i.e., it is related to either protein 2 or protein 3, but not both). Using the BLOSUM substitution score matrix (given below), explain whether protein 1 is related to protein 2, or whether it is related to protein 3. Explain your reasoning completely. D F G L K D 6-3 -1 -4 -1 F-3 6-3-3 G-1 -3 6-4 -2 L-4-4 4-2 K-1 -3 -2 -2 5 (1) What is the relatively likelihood that protein 1 is related to protein 2 versus protein 3? That is, how much more (or less) likely is the 1-2 alignment relative to the 1-3 UC Berkeley, Chem C130/MCB 100A, Fall 2008, Mid-term Exam 2.
