5.3.1 Allosteric regulation

In many proteins, the binding of a particular ligand at one site affects the conformation of a second remote binding site for another ligand on the same protein. This effect is called allosteric regulation and it is an important mechanism by which a protein's binding capacity and/or its activity are regulated. Thus the switch between two different protein conformations can be controlled by binding of a regulatory ligand.

Translation involves RNAs in the form of the ribosome and tRNAs. In this unit we will be focusing on the relationship between

1.6.4 Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)

Vitamin B6 is composed of pyridoxine and two closely related compounds. It is found in small quantities in many foods, though it can be destroyed in the cooking process. No clear deficiency disease has been recognised in humans as being directly caused by lack of this vitamin, since it is often found in conjunction with other B vitamins and their absence has greater effects. Its main role is in the conversion of some amino acids into other ones, depending on the requirements of the
