Computer simulations contribute to the discovery of a newly evolved functional interaction of the polycomb-like protein 1 (PCL1) with the tumor suppressor p53.
A collaborative research effort lead by Dr Adrian Bracken at the Smurfit Institute of Genetics in TCD, and now published in Genes and Development (doi:10.1101/gad.267930.115) has put a significant step forward in illustrating the functional bifurcation of PCL proteins. In this work extensive biomolecular simulations, conducted by Dr Elisa Fadda in Maynooth Department of Chemistry, were instrumental to pin-point the structural basis for this divergence.
