ABSTRACT Another kind of dynamics: Ubiquitin noncovalently dimerizes with a dissociation constant of approximately 5 mM. The two subunits adopt an array of relative orientations, utilizing an interface also for binding to other proteins (see picture). Quaternary fluctuation among members of the dimer ensemble constitutes a different kind of dynamics that complements the tertiary dynamics of each ubiquitin subunit.
