Protein Structure Initiative Center Maps Protein Universe

The billions of proteins that make up life on Earth are almost as numerous as the stars in the heavens, and mapping them is almost as difficult.

In a step toward charting the protein structure universe, scientists funded through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences’ Protein Structure Initiative have just created a map of the protein shapes that nature repeats over and over again to construct the billions of complex proteins that make up life.

The three-dimensional map shows similarities and differences among the protein shapes, letting scientists visualize the organization of all protein structures — the many possible twists, turns and shapes — and see evolutionary changes that may have occurred with time.
