“Curation of structures of proteins in the Protein Data Bank to show some of the diversity of shapes. For background on crystallography, or information on the individual proteins and the labs who solved the structures, or to download images, please go to www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/howarth/alphabet.htm” (YouTube)
This is so cool. It’s an alphabet of protein structures, curated by Howarth Laboratory. For more information on what each protein is, what it does, and which lab discovered it, head over to the Howarth Lab page. My favourite protein in the alphabet is Y, represented by the unmistakeable structure of an antibody.
Which is your favourite alphabetic protein? Onwards!
