English term or phrase: allostery
Definition from Biochemical Society:
Property of some proteins by which spatially separate functional sites in the molecule can communicate with each other via movements transmitted through the structure.

Example sentence(s):
  • Oligomerization enables cooperativity between multiple binding sites, a property referred to as allostery or allosteric regulation of enzymes (yet again, single polypeptide, multi-domain proteins show allosteric behavior). whatislife.com
  • The sequential model of allostery holds that subunits are not connected in such a way that a conformational change in one induces a similar change in the others. Thus all enzyme subunits need not exist in the same conformation. bio-medicine.org
  • It also follows that allostery is common and that homologous proteins can have different allosteric mechanisms. nature.com
