Folding and CD28 binding properties of Grb2 SH2 dimer

We purified the stable form of Grb2 SH2 dimer and monomer, and analyzed their structural and functional properties. The dimer mostly dissociated into the monomer around 50ºC. The CD28 binding affinity of dimer was about three fold higher than that of monomer. The stable dimer would be swapped dimer, in which the C-terminal region is extended towards the adjacent molecule. Because Trp121 was considered to be the key residue for dimer formation, W121S mutant was generated and its structural and functional properties were analyzed. The mutant still formed dimers, but lost the ability to bind CD28.
