  • cell membranes
  • Recognizes filamentous form of actin in association with particular actin-binding domains of cytoskeletal proteins, including spectrin, exposed when cell membranes are damaged, and mediate the cross-presentation of dead-cell associated antigens in a Syk-dependent manner. (uniprot.org)
  • Distinct
  • The agr quorum-sensing and signal transduction system was initially described in Staphylococcus aureus , where four distinct allelic variants have been sequenced. (asm.org)
  • Sequences of the amplicons identified 24 distinct variants which exhibited extensive sequence divergence with only 10% of the nucleotides absolutely conserved on multiple alignment. (asm.org)
  • biogenesis
  • The molecular machinery underlying peroxisomal membrane biogenesis is not well understood. (asm.org)
  • My intentions with this contribution are twofold: to describe briefly some methods of computer-aided sequence analysis in molecular biology, and to review the most important results obtained through such theoretical studies in the related fields of protein sorting and membrane protein biogenesis. (springer.com)
  • In: Op den Kamp J.A.F. (eds) Membrane Biogenesis. (springer.com)
  • predominantly
  • Using recombinant MOMP and antibodies recognizing linear or conformational epitopes of the protein, it was demonstrated that the surface-exposed epitopes of MOMP were predominantly conformational in nature. (asm.org)
  • different strains
  • Comparison of sequences from different strains of S. aureus indicates that AgrB, AgrC, and AgrD, which are involved in the generation of the specific signal, are strikingly variable among the four groups, whereas AgrA, which codes for the response regulator, is much more conserved. (asm.org)
  • Cysteine
  • The lactose transport protein (LacS) from Streptococcus thermophilus bearing a single cysteine mutation, K373C, within the putative interhelix loop 10-11 has been overexpressed in native membranes. (ox.ac.uk)
  • However, these variants retained several protein signatures, including the conserved cysteine residue of the autoinducing peptide, with the exception of S. intermedius of pigeon origin, which contained a serine in place of cysteine at this position. (asm.org)
  • Taxonomy
  • p>This subsection of the 'Names and Taxonomy' section provides an exhaustive list of all names of the protein, from commonly used to obsolete, to allow unambiguous identification of a protein. (uniprot.org)
  • lipid
  • We, thus, aim to determine the pairwise sequence identity necessary to maintain the transmembrane molecular architectures compatible with the hydrophobic nature of the lipid bilayer. (uvic.cat)
  • genomic
  • In the past decade and a half, remarkable progress in the development of cost-effective high-throughput sequencing technologies has led to an explosion of genomic sequence information from evolutionarily diverse organisms. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Opens the Genome Data Viewer, NCBI's genome browser, at the genomic location at which this sequence is annotated. (nih.gov)
  • Genomic sequence records that have the current RNA records as annotated features marking the exons of genes. (nih.gov)
  • Polymorphism
  • It is suggested that this sequence polymorphism represents a safety mechanism by which the various enterobacterial species can avoid cross-infection by noxious agents such as phages or colicins. (epfl.ch)
  • organisms
  • As with other pathogenic organisms, membrane surface molecules of C. jejuni are considered the major mediators of the pathogen-host interactions. (asm.org)
  • locus
  • We discuss hypotheses on the mode of action and the molecular evolution of the agr locus based on comparisons between the newly determined sequences. (asm.org)
  • bacterial
  • Structurally, a typical porin subunit consists of 16 to 18 β-strands forming an antiparallel β-barrel, with short turns located at the bottom of the barrel facing the periplasmic space and long loops located at the top end of the barrel facing the external surface of bacterial membrane ( 8 , 9 , 36 , 42 , 48 ).
