Glossary of "The Cell (5th ed.)" by Alberts et al. (2008)
- Change in a proteins conformation brought about by the binding of a regulatory ligand (at a site other than the protein’s catalytic site), or by covalent modification. The change in conformation alters the activity of the protein and can form the basis of directed movement.
