It is important to understand how the catalytic activity of enzymes is related to their conformational flexibility. We have studied this activity-flexibility correlation using the example of indole-3-glycerol phosphate synthase from Sulfolobus solfataricus (ssIGPS), which catalyzes the fifth step in the biosynthesis of tryptophan. ssIGPS is a thermostable representative of enzymes with the ...
