Abstract

We analyzed a tertiary structure of systemin, the first identified polypeptide plant hormone, using two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. From these data and molecular dynamics calculations we concluded that the peptide can adopt a Z-like-beta-sheet structure, which has previously been found in many specific DNA-binding proteins. Using DNA-cellulose affinity chromatography, we showed that systemin ...
