Allostery and molecular machines

19 June 2017 09:00 - 20 June 2017 17:00, London, United Kingdom


Many cellular processes are facilitated by multi-subunit, motor-proteins. These biological machines exploit allostery and the formation of distinct conformational states resulting from cycles of ligand binding and release, driven by the hydrolysis of ATP. We aim to discuss the latest experimental and computational approaches, so as to enhance our understanding of the structural changes underlying the operation of these molecular machines.

Registration should be completed via the meeting webpage.

Call for posters – deadline 12 May 2017
