Practical

1.(a) How many hemoglobin structures that cause sickle cell anemia (hemoglobin S) are deposited in the PDB?   (b)What is the part of the protein (buried/surface) that this amino acid mutation occurs? (c) Discuss why normal hemoglobin (Glu 7, Asp73) is less likely to form fibers than Hemoglobin C-Harlem (D73N, Chain B + E7V, Chain H).

2. Attach a photograph of your physical model of 256b.pdb with your name and ID on the lower right corner.

3. Make animation by adding at least 3 consecutive pictures of the protein looked up from Proteopedia  using Discovery Studio and Photoscape. Write the PDB code and the name of the protein with your name and ID.
