Abstract

Structural biology has unraveled the structure of a number of protein–protein complexes and has thus contributed to our understanding of the functions that proteins play in the context of the web of interactions to which they contribute within the cell. This brief review summarizes some of the properties of protein–protein interactions that have been characterized by structural biology work and defines the challenges ahead.

Keywords:
