Question details

Use the following alignment of 2 subunits of protein to answer the following questions461A (a) MSDSLN-HESSSTVHADDGFEPPTSPEDNNKKPSLEQIKCEREALFTDLFADR 52 OTIHGNNGFDPPSS EANQRKPSVD 39 -l1) Looking at the two amino acid residues indicated by the asterisk, the sequence alignment program did not consider these residues to be homologous. Now that you possess some biochemistry ‘kung fu’, you notice that they do indeed share some homology. Write the names of the two amino acid residues.

2) Describe one similarity between the two amino acid residues indicated by the asterisk.
