• several
  • It is located in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast and it is composed of an apoprotein along with several ligands, the most important of which are chlorophylls a and b. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • The relative stabilities and structural properties of a representative set of 20 ALS-mutant Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase apoproteins were examined by using differential scanning calorimetry and hydrogen-deuterium (H/D) exchange followed by MS. Contrary to recent reports from other laboratories, we found that ALS-mutant apoproteins are not universally destabilized by the disease-causing mutations. (nih.gov)
  • properties
  • Most striking were the three mutant apoproteins, D101N, E100K, and N139K, which have apparently normal metallation properties, and differ little from the WT apoprotein in either thermal stability or H/D exchange kinetics. (nih.gov)
  • Thus, the ALS mutant Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase apoproteins do not all share reduced global stability, and additional properties must be identified and understood to explain the toxicity of all of the mutant proteins. (nih.gov)
