De novo design of a reversible phosphorylation-dependent switch for membrane targeting

De novo design of a reversible phosphorylation-dependent switch for membrane targeting

Modules that switch protein-protein interactions on and off are important to develop artificial biology; for instance, to assemble orthogonal signaling pathways, to manage synthetic protein constructions dynamically, and for protein localization in cells or protocells. In nature, the E. coli MinCDE system {couples} nucleotide-dependent switching of MinD dimerization to membrane targeting to set off spatiotemporal sample formation. Here …
