In this thesis, we present the crystal structure of C. albicans polarisomal protein Aip5 (786-896) at 2.65 Å resolution. Structural comparison of nucleation promoting factor Aip5 with its S. cerevisiae homolog revealed the difference in actin-binding loop flexibility, which may account for their differential actin-binding affinities reported in literature.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/147880||DOI:||10.32657/10356/147880||Rights:||This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0).||Fulltext Permission:||embargo_20260414||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
