Protein Domain

Course Description

Course Objective

A protein domain is a conserved part of a given protein sequence and structure that can evolve function and exist independently of the rest of the protein chain Each domain forms a compact threedimensional structure and often can be independently stable and folded Many proteins consist of several structural domains One domain may appear in a variety of different proteins Molecular evolution uses domains as building blocks and these may be recombined in different arrangements to create proteins with different functions
