Hi friends, There are several protein classification systems, each of them useful in a way! I want to study the thermophilic adaption of an organism at protein sequence & structure level (SEQUENCE & structure COMPARISON). Which of the available "protein groupings" could give better insights? I presume COG classification might be better! Or is it better to select certain type of proteins alone & finish the analysis? Any other suggestions for this study are welcome! If my question is not clear please inform me! Thanks!

Well your study is quite wide. Because, I am not sure you will find something, say motif or domain absolutely common to all proteins. You can pick a class, say polymerases, membrane proteins, metabolic pathway enzymes, and then study their topology, abundance and functional motifs. This way it would be easy, and feasible to assess.

Thanks for the answer, This is what I am trying to do now! I am selecting enzymes,membrane proteins & proteins with hits to PDB.
