Purpose of center:
During the pilot phase, this academic consortium determined more than 200 structures of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins, including human proteins, using X-ray crystallography and solution-state NMR spectroscopy. It also developed several new technologies for eukaryotic protein production and protein structure analysis. In PSI-2, the consortium plans to solve both prokaryotic and eukaryotic structural representatives from the major domain families constituting the eukaryotic proteome. Its biological-focus project targets networks of co-functioning proteins (BioNets) involved in developmental biology and cancer.
