Multiple Sequence Alignment and Phylogenetic Tree of Human and Viral Helicases

This is a summary of a detailed analysis that is available here. Helicases are motor proteins that separate double helices through the hydrolysis of ATP analogues (Fairman-Williams et al., Current Opinion in Structural Biology, 2010). They constitute one of the largest enzyme groups, as multiple varieties of helicases are present in all forms of cellular Read More …
