Re: Protein Modeling C

I read that the amino acid residue cysteine is very important in caspase-3, but how do I know if all of the cysteines in caspase-3 are important or if only just some of them are? Wikipedia says that cys285, his237, and gly 238 are important, but I cannot find a cys285 in caspase 3. is there a reaso...

Re: Protein Modeling C

I still don't understand the functionally relevant features. could these be the amino acid residues involved in hydrogen bonds?
:cry:

Re: Protein Modeling C

Is there a molecular story for capase-3?
all I can find is the one for XIAP

Re: Protein Modeling C

How do we know what "functionally relevant features are" that we should add to the model?

Re: Protein Modeling C

Okay, I am clueless about jmol (and probably protein modeling in general), but I managed to download jmol and the 1i3o.pdb file that I think is capase 3 (right?). Now I have a pink, purple, yellow, and white structure with little red dots. is this what it is supposed to look like? also, It says for ...

Re: Fermi Questions C

How much do you guys study for this event? It seems like you can't really study anything -- just practice

Re: Microbe Mission B/C

I guess i' m kind of confused about what to study as far as types of microbes go. Do we need to know about the macroscopic forms of fungi and algae? what about the structures of plant and animal cells?

Re: Anatomy B/C

This is what my book says.... "...intrinsic salivary glands contain lingual lipase, a fat-digesting enzyme that is optimally active at an acid pH." Later whie discussing the digestion of lipids it says: "The small intestine is essentially the sole site of lipid digestion because the pancreas is the ...
