Divergent evolution of (betaalpha)8-barrel enzymes.

Henn-Sax, Martina ; Höcker, Birte ; Wilmanns, Matthias ; Sterner, Reinhard


The (betaalpha)8-barrel is the most versatile and most frequently encountered fold among enzymes. It is an interesting question how the contemporary (betaalpha)8-barrels are evolutionarily related and by which mechanisms they evolved from more simple precursors. Comprehensive comparisons of amino acid sequences and three-dimensional structures suggest that a large fraction of the known ...
