The solution structure of the first KH domain of FMR1, the protein responsible for the fragile X syndrome

Nature Structural Biology volume 4, pages 712716 (1997) | Download Citation

Subjects

The structure and dynamics of the first KH domain of FMR1 — the protein responsible for fragile X syndrome — reveal that an exposed loop is highly flexible despite containing a GxxG motif that is well conserved throughout the KH family. We suggest that this region provides a putative binding surface for RNA recognition.
