We finally explicitly superpose the ENMs and PCNs results, in order to better specify key residues and features in allosteric regulation of Hb.
The topics include signaling enzymes and their allosteric regulation, the role of post-transitional modification in signaling, information transfer across the membrane, the modular architecture and evolution of signaling proteins, and methods for studying signaling proteins and networks.

Prototypical HSP70 proteins contain a nucleotide binding domain (NBD) and a peptide-binding domain (PBD) that are connected by a flexible linker region that contributes to allosteric regulation of NBD and PBD activity.
Since CBS is normally activated by AdoMet, it is natural that the steady-state of the system is entirely influenced by this allosteric regulation. In understanding of why this regulation is present, on the other hand, it is very useful to elucidate the system behavior when the CBS activation is completely lost.
