Computational Design Of A Protein That Binds Polar Surfaces

Enzyme Inhibitor DesignIn a Journal of Molecular Biology publication entitled Computational design of a protein-based enzyme inhibitor, Dr. Erik Procko and collaborators describe the computational design of a protein-based enzyme inhibitor that binds the polar active site of hen egg lysosome (HEL).  Computational design of a protein that binds polar surfaces has not been previously accomplished.  Learn more at this link.
