Protein Dynamics, Allostery and Function
Organizer(s): Ivet Bahar and Lila M. Gierasch
Date: June 05 - 10, 2009
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
With recent progress in exploring biomolecular systems dynamics, an emerging view is that of the ‘intrinsic ability’ of biomolecular systems to populate an ensemble of fluctuating conformations, or alternative states, which include, in particular, the functional forms stabilized upon ligand/substrate binding or protein-protein interactions. Allosteric changes in conformations, or signal transduction mechanisms, thus emerge as properties encoded by the structure and energy landscape, which are evolutionarily selected due to their functional predisposition. Of particular interest is to elucidate the mechanisms of information flow, not only at the level of residue interactions, but also between the components of biomolecular machines or cell signaling networks. This Keystone Symposia meeting will provide a forum for researchers from diverse fields to explore the basic principles underlying allosteric responses at the molecular level, and their higher (cellular) level consequences, and to exchange expertise on methods to illuminate key dynamic properties of biomolecular systems.
