Secondly, using electrostatic arguments about individual amino acids and their positions in the coiled-coil, we reduced the variation even further, by allowing only 2 different amino acids on 3 of those 4 positions, and completely fixing the remaining amino acid.
In the former, the residues 254-284 of the COOH-terminal region of [alpha]-tropomyosin (C-Tm) were preceded by a 20-residue fragment of the GCN4, a transcription factor with the leucine-zipper motif, (120) to facilitate the formation of coiled-coil structure.
Thus, we would suggest that the g.8778G>A SNP within the CCDC158 gene was influenced during transformation of the coiled-coil structure by the nonsynonymous SNP found in this study.

The minimal TRPC3-VAMP2 interacting domain was identified and both immunoprecipitation and confocal microscopic studies showed that VAMP2 interacts with TRPC3 at the coiled-coil domain of the N-terminus.
Two alpha helices--from adjacent parts or separate parts of the same amino acid string--can wrap around each other into a so-called coiled-coil structure.
