Protein Stability 4. Hydrophobicity in the core (cavity) -Barnase (bacterial RNAse-110 a.a.) -structure by both x-ray and NMR -introducing cavities in the core by mutations such as Ile Val or Phe Leu Cavity for a CH2 Stability by 1kcal/mol -More delicate design -Needs structure

Prediction of Structure From Sequence • Empirical – in progress • ~75% successful-at best (62-65%). For the membrane- embedded domains of membrane proteins up to 90% • Essence: Pattern Recognition • Key: Evolutionary Information – Sequence homology implies similarity in structure and function – By inference/By Anaysis • Data bases (2007 >500,000 seq., >45,000 Structures Information Prediction • Example: Homologous proteins Conserved Core Variable Loop
