Target peptide recognition by S100P protein and role of central linker region and dimer interface
Interaction between S100P and its target protein is an essential step in several cellular functions. The amphiphatic mellitin peptide binds tightly to S100P protein in the presence of calcium cation. Since little is known about the recognition sequence, mellitin interaction form a model for S100P. Interaction between mellitin and protein examined to identify key regions required for the protein-protein interaction.
