(Solved): What Would Be The Effect Of A Mutation That Replaced The Alanine Residue At Point A In The Structure...
What would be the effect of a mutation that replaced the alanine residue at point A in the structure with a threonine residue?
- This would not affect the molecule and the mutant protein would be functional.
- This would break the helix and form hairpin structures, that would make the mutant protein nonfunctional.
- This would result in a partially unfolded protein, and the mutant protein would be nonfunctional.
- This would break the helix near the Fe2 binding sites, and the mutant protein would change functions.
- This would break the helix near the binding sites and Fe2 could not be bound, and the mutant protein would be nonfunctional.
(The last option is not correct)
Please give an explanation as to why as well :)
