Investigation of the Zinc binding region of Prothymosin-alpha : A spectroscopic and thermodynamic approach to study metal binding in Intrinsically disordered proteins
(East Carolina University, 2014)
The goal of this study is to provide a deeper insight into how metals bind intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) by taking zinc binding to prothymosin-alpha as a case study. The involvement of metals in several diseases ...
Prothymosin-Alpha : Features of the protein sequence that contribute to the anti-HIV Activity
(East Carolina University, 2010)
Prothymosin-alpha (ProT[alpha]) is a protein mainly located in the nucleus of the cells. Though its exact function is not known, it is believed to be involved in cell proliferation. The ability of this protein to inhibit ...
