PROTEIN ENGINEERING

 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVES: To enable the students
• To identify the importance of protein biomolecules.
• To realize the structure-function relationships in proteins

UNIT I

BONDS, ENERGIES, BUILDING BLOCKS OF PROTEINS

9

Covalent, Ionic, Hydrogen, Coordinate, hydrophobic and Vander walls interactions in protein structure. Interaction with electromagnetic radiation (radio, micro, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X- ray) and elucidation of protein structure. Amino acids (the students should be thorough with three and single letter codes) and their molecular properties (size, solubility, charge, pKa), Chemical reactivity in relation to post-translational modification (involving amino, carboxyl, hydroxyl, thiol, imidazole groups).

UNIT II

PROTEIN ARCHITECTURE

9

Primary structure: peptide mapping, peptide sequencing - automated Edman method & massspec. High-throughput protein sequencing setup Secondary structure: Alpha, beta and loop structures and methods to determine Super-secondary structure: Alpha-turn-alpha, beta-turnbeta (hairpin), beta-sheets, alpha-beta-alpha, topology diagrams, up and down & TIM barrel structures nucleotide binding folds, prediction of substrate binding sites.


UNIT III

TERTIARY STRUCTURE

9

Tertiary structure: Domains, folding, denaturation and renaturation, overview of methods to determine 3D structures. Quaternary structure: Modular nature, formation of complexes. Computer exercise on the above aspects

UNIT IV

STRUCTURE-FUNCTION RELATIONSHIP

9

DNA-binding proteins: prokaryotic transcription factors, Helix-turn-Helix motif in DNA binding, Trp Repressor, Eukaryotic transcription factors, Zn fingers, helix-turn helix motifs in homeodomain, Leucine zippers. Membrane proteins: General characteristics, Transmembrane segments, prediction, bacteriorhodopsin and Photosynthetic reaction center, Immunoglobulins: IgG Light chain and heavy chain architecture, abzymes and Enzymes: Serine proteases, understanding catalytic design by engineering trypsin, chymotrypsin and elastase, substrate-assisted catalysis other commercial applications. Computer exercise on the above aspects

UNIT V

PROTEOMICS

9

Introduction to the concept of proteome, components of proteomics, proteomic analysis, importance of proteomics in biological functions, protein-protein interactions and methods to study it: protein arrays, cross linking methods, affinity methods, yeast hybrid systems and protein arrays. Computer exercise on the above aspects

TOTAL : 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, students will be able:
• To analyze the various interactions in protein makeup.
• To be familiar with different levels of protein structure.
• To know the role of functional proteins in various field of study.
• To practice the latest application of protein science in their research.
