Rules from families of homologous protein structures We have used COMPARER to produce a database of alignments of threedimensional structures (J. -Y. Zhu, A. Sali & T. L. Blundell, Comparisons of three-dimensional structure 31 unpublished work). From these alignments we have derived a set of rules useful for modelling. The simplest examples of such rules define the substitution of amino acids in three-dimensional structures as a function of the ‘structural environment’ (Overington et a1 1990). These are derived by counting how many times two residue types occur at structurally equivalent positions.

Janin: That ‘flap’ is probably not involved in catalysis, because one of the adenylate kinases you mentioned doesn’t have it. Do you plan to investigate its function by site-directed mutagenesis studies? Schulz: We are doing site-directed mutagenesis on the yeast enzyme and others work on other species. The structures of adenylate kinases tell us that the active centre is disassembled in the open form. Only when the substrates bind does the correct orientation of the chain occur. In particular, arginine residues are fastened by aspartic acid residues on this movement.

It’s also present in actin, but there’s a 10-residue insertion in the middle of it. The insertion is a loop that forms part of the actinactin interface in filamentous actin. It does happen, even in Nature! Richards: What does that do t o the registration? Holmes: Nothing. Ptitsyn: I should like to make some comments on the general topology of proteins. The problem, like that Tom Blundell has spoken about, is one of similarity of tertiary folds of different proteins.
