Role of conserved non-linear structural motifs in the assembly of active protein kinases

submitted by: icamvid

Alexandr Kornev gives a talk at the RPP08 conference that includes:
1) Description of the LSP-alignment
2) Detection of a conserved nonlinear motif in protein kinases
3) Nonlinear motifs termed "spines" anchored to a single helix organize the kinase core.
