DEHYDRON: A PLAYER IN ENZYME CATALYSIS

Dehydrons are disruptive structural defects in proteins in the form of solvent-exposed backbone hydrogen bonds. Dehydrons create interfacial tension and promote their own dehydration, hence they play a central role as determinants of protein associations. Recently, Ariel Fern├índez has shown that dehydrons are also vital components of the enzymatic apparatus [Ariel Fernandez: COMMUNICATION: Chemical functionality […]
