Beta propellers: structural rigidity and functional diversity.

Author information

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL, UK.


Recently solved structures and proposed models have helped to reveal the structural characteristics of the beta-propeller fold, as well as the features that contribute to its high rigidity and stability. Possible strategies for identifying beta-propeller proteins in newly characterised sequences are helping to overcome the problems of predicting the beta-propeller fold from amino acid sequences.
