Dear bionetters,
Except for the obvious role as ligand to Fe and Cu ions in redox
enzymes, does anyone know of other specific roles of methionin in
proteins? Any specific properties, like dielectric constant etc? Is
there any pattern for the distribution of Met in certain types of
proteins? Differences between eucharyots and procaryots? Any info is
welcome!

Thanks,
Ann Magnuson
