Thank you Sir,
The interface is connected by salt bridges and hydrogen bonding interactions
and not severely
hydrophobic. I tried simulating the monomers it stayed quite stable without
unfolding till 50ns.
Even the other structure which are reported to be dimer is a reported as a
trimer in solution.
Another one is a part of a bifunctional protein which is an octamer. So
Because of all these
confusions I through some information could be obtained from a monomeric
Is it reasonable?
