A fast method for predicting amino acid mutations that lead to unfolding. (1/210)

Amino acid mutation(s) that cause(s) partial or total unfolding of a protein can lead to disease states and failure to produce mutants. It is therefore very useful to be able to predict which mutations can retain the conformation of a wild-type protein and which mutations will lead to local or global unfolding of the protein. We have developed a fast and reasonably accurate method based on a backbone-dependent side-chain rotamer library to predict the (folded or unfolded) conformation of a protein upon mutation. This method has been tested on proteins whose wild-type 3D structures are known and whose mutant conformations have been experimentally characterized to be folded or unfolded. Furthermore, for the cases studied here, the predicted partially folded or denatured mutant conformation correlate with a decrease in the stability of the mutant relative to the wild-type protein. The key advantage of our method is that it is very fast and predicts locally or globally unfolded states fairly accurately. Hence, it may prove to be useful in designing site-directed mutagenesis, X-ray crystallography and drug design experiments as well as in free energy simulations by helping to ascertain whether a mutation will alter or retain the wild-type conformation.  (+info)

Bicarbonate dramatically enhanced DCFH oxidation to DCF in a SOD1/H(2)O(2)/DCFH system. Peroxidase activity could be measured at a lower H(2)O(2) concentration ( approximately 1 microm). We propose that DCFH oxidation to DCF is a sensitive index for measuring the peroxidase activity of SOD1 and familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis SOD1 mutants and that the carbonate radical anion (CO(3)) is responsible for oxidation of DCFH to DCF in the SOD1/H(2)O(2)/bicarbonate system. Bicarbonate enhanced H(2)O(2)-dependent oxidation of DCFH to DCF by spinal cord extracts of transgenic mice expressing SOD1(G93A). The SOD1/H(2)O(2)/HCO(3)(-)-dependent oxidation was mimicked by photolysis of an inorganic cobalt carbonato complex that generates CO(3). Metalloporphyrin antioxidants that are usually considered as SOD1 mimetic or peroxynitrite dismutase effectively scavenged the CO(3) radical. Implications of this reaction as a plausible protective mechanism in inflammatory cellular damage induced by peroxynitrite are discussed.  (+info)

A possible role for pi-stacking in the self-assembly of amyloid fibrils. (3/210)

Amyloid fibril formation is assumed to be the molecular basis for a variety of diseases of unrelated origin. Despite its fundamental clinical importance, the mechanism of amyloid formation is not fully understood. When we analyzed a variety of short functional fragments from unrelated amyloid-forming proteins, a remarkable occurrence of aromatic residues was observed. The finding of aromatic residues in diverse fragments raises the possibility that pi-pi interactions may play a significant role in the molecular recognition and self-assembly processes that lead to amyloid formation. This is in line with the well-known central role of pi-stacking interactions in self-assembly processes in the fields of chemistry and biochemistry. We speculate that the stacking interactions may provide energetic contribution as well as order and directionality in the self-assembly of amyloid structures. Experimental data regarding amyloid formation and inhibition by short peptide analogs also support our hypothesis. The pi-stacking hypothesis suggests a new approach to understanding the self-assembly mechanism that governs amyloid formation and indicates possible ways to control this process.  (+info)

Exploring the active site of plant glutaredoxin by site-directed mutagenesis. (4/210)

Six mutants (Y26A, C27S, Y29F, Y29P, C30S and Y26W/Y29P) have been engineered in order to explore the active site of poplar glutaredoxin (Grx) (Y26CPYC30). The cysteinic mutants indicate that Cys 27 is the primary nucleophile. Phe is a good substitute for Tyr 29, but the Y29P mutant was inactive. The Y26A mutation caused a moderate loss of activity. The YCPPC and WCPPC mutations did not improve the reactivity of Grx with the chloroplastic NADP-malate dehydrogenase, a well known target of thioredoxins (Trxs). The results are discussed in relation with the known biochemical properties of Grx and Trx.  (+info)

Charged amino acids conserved in the aromatic acid/H+ symporter family of permeases are required for 4-hydroxybenzoate transport by PcaK from Pseudomonas putida. (5/210)

Charged amino acids in the predicted transmembrane portion of PcaK, a permease from Pseudomonas putida that transports 4-hydroxybenzoate (4-HBA), were required for 4-HBA transport, and they were also required for P. putida to have a chemotactic response to 4-HBA. An essential amino acid motif (DGXD) containing aspartate residues is located in the first transmembrane segment of PcaK and is conserved in the aromatic acid/H+ symporter family of the major facilitator superfamily of transporters.  (+info)

Aromatic-aromatic interactions in and around alpha-helices. (6/210)

To understand the role of aromatic-aromatic interactions in imparting specificity to the folding process, the geometries of four aromatic residues with different sequence spacing, located in alpha-helices or five residues from helical ends, interacting with each other have been elucidated. The geometry is found to depend on the sequence difference. Specific interactions (C-H...pi and N-H...pi) which result from this geometry may cause a given pair of residues (such as Phe-His) with a particular sequence difference to occur more than expected. The most conspicuous residue in an aromatic pair in the context of helix stability is His, which is found at the last (C1) position or the two positions (Ncap and Ccap) immediately flanking the helix. An alpha-helix and a contiguous 3(10)-helix or two helices separated by a non-helical residue can have interacting aromatic pairs, the geometry of interaction and the relative orientation between the helices being rather fixed. Short helices can also have interacting residues from either side.  (+info)

The ARO4 gene of Candida albicans encodes a tyrosine-sensitive DAHP synthase: evolution, functional conservation and phenotype of Aro3p-, Aro4p-deficient mutants. (7/210)

The enzyme 3-deoxy-D-arabinoheptulosonate-7-phosphate (DAHP) synthase catalyses the first step in aromatic amino acid biosynthesis in prokaryotes, plants and fungi. Cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae contain two catalytically redundant DAHP synthases, encoded by the genes ARO3 and ARO4, whose activities are feedback-inhibited by phenylalanine and tyrosine, respectively. ARO3/4 gene transcription is controlled by GCN4. The authors previously cloned an ARO3 gene orthologue from Candida albicans and found that: (1) it can complement an aro3 aro4 double mutation in S. cerevisiae, an effect inhibited by excess phenylalanine, and (2) a homozygous aro3-deletion mutant of C. albicans is phenotypically Aro(+), suggesting the existence of another isozyme(s). They now report the identification and functional characterization of the C. albicans orthologue of S. cerevisiae Aro4p. The two Aro4p enzymes share 68% amino acid identity. Phylogenetic analysis places the fungal DAHP synthases in a cluster separate from prokaryotic orthologues and suggests that ARO3 and ARO4 arose from a single gene via a gene duplication event early in fungal evolution. C. albicans ARO4 mRNA is elevated upon amino acid starvation, consistent with the presence of three putative Gcn4p-responsive elements (GCREs) in the gene promoter sequence. C. albicans ARO4 complements an aro3 aro4 double mutation in S. cerevisiae, an effect inhibited by excess tyrosine. The authors engineered Deltaaro3/Deltaaro3 Deltaaro4/MET3p::ARO4 cells of C. albicans (with one wild-type copy of ARO4 placed under control of the repressible MET3 promoter) and found that they fail to grow in the absence of aromatic amino acids when ARO4 expression is repressed, and that this growth defect can be partially rescued by aromatic amino acids and certain aromatic amino acid pathway intermediates. It is concluded that, like S. cerevisiae, C. albicans contains two DAHP synthases required for the first step in the aromatic amino acid biosynthetic pathway.  (+info)

Refined molecular hinge between allosteric and catalytic domain determines allosteric regulation and stability of fungal chorismate mutase. (8/210)

The yeast chorismate mutase is regulated by tyrosine as feedback inhibitor and tryptophan as crosspathway activator. The monomer consists of a catalytic and a regulatory domain covalently linked by the loop L220s (212-226), which functions as a molecular hinge. Two monomers form the active dimeric enzyme stabilized by hydrophobic interactions in the vicinity of loop L220s. The role of loop L220s and its environment for enzyme regulation, dimerization, and stability was analyzed. Substitution of yeast loop L220s in place of the homologous loop from the corresponding and similarly regulated Aspergillus enzyme (and the reverse substitution) changed tyrosine inhibition to activation. Yeast loop L220s substituted into the Aspergillus enzyme resulted in a tryptophan-inhibitable enzyme. Monomeric yeast chorismate mutases could be generated by substituting two hydrophobic residues in and near the hinge region. The resulting Thr-212-->Asp-Phe-28-->Asp enzyme was as stable as wild type, but lost allosteric regulation and showed reduced catalytic activity. These results underline the crucial role of this molecular hinge for inhibition, activation, quaternary structure, and stability of yeast chorismate mutase.  (+info)

Yersinia pestis, the causative agent of plague, poses a serious health threat to rodents and human beings. TyrR is a transcriptional regulator that controls the metabolism of aromatic amino acids in Escherichia coli. In this paper, TyrR played an important role in Y. pestis virulence. Inactivation of tyrR did not seem to affect the in vitro growth of this organism, but resulted in at least 10,000-fold attenuation compared with the wild-type (WT) strain upon subcutaneous infection to mice. In addition, loads of tyrR mutant within mice livers and spleens significantly decreased compared with the WT strain. Transcriptome analysis revealed that TyrR, directly or indirectly, regulated 29 genes encoded on Y. pestis chromosome or plasmids under in vitro growth condition. Similar to the regulatory function of this protein in E. coli, five aromatic-pathway genes (aroF-tyrA, aroP, aroL, and tyrP) were significantly reduced upon deletion of the tyrR gene. Two genes (glnL and glnG) that encode sensory histidine
How is Aromatic Amino Acids abbreviated? AAA stands for Aromatic Amino Acids. AAA is defined as Aromatic Amino Acids somewhat frequently.
Tyrosine is one of 3 aromatic amino acids. All aromatic amino acids are relatively nonpolar. To different degrees, all aromatic amino acids absorb ultraviolet light. Tyrosine and tryptophan absorb more than do phenylalanine; tryptophan is responsible for most of the absorbance of ultraviolet light ( 280 nm = UV) by proteins. Tyrosine is the only one of the aromatic amino acids with a photo-ionizable side chain. Tyrosine is one of three hydroxyl-containing amino acids. When dopamine is made any other way chemically or substrate substituted the brain and cells cannot control its concentration properly and many side effects result. It turns out other chemicals with disulfide bonds are critical in working properly with dopamine. When it is made by the interaction between UV light and tyrosine as designed by nature the perfect balance occurs photo-chemically. This is why taking exogenous glutathione is risky. The amount of light released has to be quantized with other chemicals in the local cell ...

Ion channels are proteins that traverse the cell membrane and form gated pores that open and close in response to various stimuli. In order to experimentally probe aspects of ion channel functionality, we performed subtle structure function studies using the in vivo nonsense suppression method, which allows for the incorporation of synthetically accessible unnatural amino acids and hydroxy acids into an ion channel at a site of interest. Fluorinated aromatic amino acids are good probes for a cation-π interaction because fluorine substituents reduce the binding affinity of the aromatic for a cation in a linear, step-wise fashion. In collaboration with Professor Richard Horn at the Thomas Jefferson University, we substituted a series of fluorinated phenylalanines for important tyrosines in the Shaker B K+ channel and experimentally determined that TEA was binding to the residues through a cation-π interaction. We also determined that Ca2+ binds to and blocks the NaV1.4 channel through a ...

We investigated 1060 possible anion-pi interactions in a data set of 41 superoxide dismutase active centers. Our observations indicate that majority of the aromatic residues are capable to form anion-pi interactions, mainly by long-range contacts, and that there is preference of Trp over other aromatic residues in these interactions. Furthermore, 68% of total predicted interactions in the dataset are multiple anion-pi interactions. Anion-pi interactions are distance and orientation dependent. We analyzed the energy contribution resulting from anion-pi interactions using ab initio calculations. The results showed that, while most of their interaction energies lay in the range from -0 to -4 kcal mol(-1), those energies can be up to -9 kcal mol(-1) and about 34% of interactions were found to be repulsive. Majority of the suggested anion-pi interacting residues in ternary complexes are metal-assisted. Stabilization centers for these proteins showed that all the six residues found in predic...ted ...
Enzymes are biological catalysts that are essential to life: they are largely very efficient and exquisitely specialised to their substrate. They are, however, predicted to have evolved from simple promiscuous catalysts (able to catalyse multiple reactions on multiple substrates). The goal of this thesis was to explore the multiple models of evolution with three model enzymes. In a complementary model for enzyme evolution, it is hypothesised that some ancient enzymes may have exhibited higher catalytic rates than their extant descendants. This model was investigated through the reconstruction of core bacterial enzymes AroA (aromatic amino acid biosynthesis) and MurA (peptidoglycan biosynthesis), from the common ancestor of modern Streptoccocci species. The ~300 million year old ancestral enzyme conformed to the model, with 20-fold higher activity than MurA enzymes in modern Streptococci. Several models for enzyme evolution, both primordial and contemporary, require a multifunctional precursor ...
The low affinity aromatic amino acid (Tyr, Trp, Phe) transporter, TAT1 (T-type amino acid transporter), MCT10, Slc16a10. Also transports N-methyl amino acids and thyroid hormones. Essential for aromatic amino acid homeostasis in various tissues of mice (Mariotta et al. 2012). MCT10 is 58% identical to MCT8. Both transporters mediate T3 transport, but while MCT8 also transports rT3 and T4, these compounds are not efficiently transported by MCT10.

ABCC10 is an efflux pump that confers multidrug resistance to cells by extruding a variety of natural and nucleosides analogues using energy from ATP hydrolysis. The objective of this project is to understand the detailed relationship between ATP hydrolysis and drug transport for ABCC10 and how ABCC10s ATPase activity is regulated. For this study, we mutated aromatic residues to polar residues in the Nucleotide Binding Domains (NBDs) of ABCC10 to determine how these residues are involved in the transport of ABCC10 substrates. Prior, structural analyses of several bacterial ABC-transporters indicated that aromatic amino acid residues in NBDs are needed for ATP binding and ATP hydrolysis. In these studies, substitution of these aromatic residues completely abolished ATP-dependent transport. Prior work on ABCC1 has shown that substitutions such as W (tryptophan) to C (cytidine) or Y (tyrosine) to C (cytidine) decreased ABCC1s affinity for ATP, and ATP-dependent LTC4 transport activities. ...

you can put all atoms in the aromatic groups in separate charge groups, but that will make the simulation slightly slower. Further, putting all of the atoms in each aromatic side chain into their own charge group could slightly change the equilibrium properties of a peptide or protein since aromatic residues would then be more strongly attracting near the cutoff distance than they are when assigned the regular charge groups of a force field. Most force fields (except GROMOS) have probably been parametrized without charge groups. Therefore having smaller charge groups is always more accurate, unless you have a buffer region, which is now possible in 4.0. (This all assumes that you use PME and not cut-off or reaction-field for electrostatics). However, this is probably not a serious issue.. One might try ...

CH-π aromatic interactions are ubiquitous in nature and are capable of regulating important chemical and biochemical processes. Solvation and aromatic substituent effects are known to perturb the CH-π aromatic interactions. However, the nature by which the two factors influence one another is relatively unexplored. Here we demonstrate experimentally that there is a quantitative correlation between substituent effects in CH-π interactions and the hydrogen-bond acceptor constant of the solvating molecule. The CH-π interaction energies were measured by the conformational study of a series of aryl-substituted molecular balances in which the conformational preferences depended on the relative strengths of the methyl and aryl CH-π interactions in the folded and unfolded states, respectively ...
A team led by scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have now succeeded in solving the X-ray crystallographic structure of murine Pgp, a result that they hope will help chemists to design more effective drugs. The 3.8Å structure of the apo protein revealed an internal cavity of ca 6000Å3, with a 30Å separation of the two nucleotide-binding domains. Two additional structures with bound inhibitors showed that hydrophobic and aromatic amino acids form distinct drug-binding sites which are capable of stereo-recognition. The apo and drug-bound Pgp structures are open to the cytoplasm and the inner leaflet of the lipid bilayer for drug entry, representing initial stages of the transport cycle. The overall structure of Pgp is very similar to that of the bacterial protein, MsbA, which transports lipids out of bacteria, suggesting that Pgp may work in a similar way. In the bacterial transporter, binding of ATP changes the accessibility of the carrier from cytoplasmic (inward) facing to ...

To understand the cation-π interaction in aromatic amino acids and peptides, the binding of M+ (where M+ = Li+, Na+, and K+) to phenylalanine (Phe) is studied at the best level of density functional theory reported so far. The different modes of M+ binding show the same order of binding affinity (Li+ > Na+ > K+), in the approximate ratio of 2.2:1.5:1.0. The most stable binding mode is one in which the M+ is stabilized by a tridentate interaction between the cation and the carbonyl oxygen (O=C), amino nitrogen (-NH2), and aromatic π ring; the absolute Li+, Na+, and K+ affinities are estimated theoretically to be 275, 201, and 141 kJ mol-1, respectively. Factors affecting the relative stabilities of various M +-Phe binding modes and conformers have been identified, with ion-dipole interaction playing an important role. We found that the trend of π and non-π cation bonding distances (Na+-π > Na +-N > Na+-O and K+ -π > K +-N > K+-O) in our theoretical Na+/K +-Phe structures ...
Biosynthesis of the aromatic amino acids tryptophan, tyrosine, and phenylalanine proceeds via a common pathway to chorismate, at which point the pathway branches (CITS:[Jones][1943992]). One branch proceeds to tryptophan, and the other to tyrosine and phenylalanine (CITS:[Jones]). The series of reactions to chorismate, called the shikimate pathway, and the series of reactions from chorismate to tryptophan have been found to be common to all eukaryotes and prokaryotes studied thus far (as reported in (CITS:[1943992])). In contrast, there appears to be two separate routes from chorismate to tyrosine and phenylalanine, only one of which has been found in S. cerevisiae (CITS:[1943992]). Aromatic amino acid biosynthesis in S. cerevisiae is controlled by a combination of feedback inhibition, activation of enzyme activity, and regulation of enzyme synthesis (CITS:[Jones][1943992]). The first step in the tryptophan branch is feedback inhibited by tryptophan, and the first step in the ...
In this work, we have analyzed the influence of cation-pi interactions to the stability of Sm/LSm assemblies and their environmental preferences. The number of interactions formed by arginine is higher than lysine in the cationic group, while histidine is comparatively higher than phenylalanine and tyrosine in the pi group. Arg-Tyr interactions are predominant among the various pairs analyzed. The furcation level of multiple cation-pi interactions is much higher than that of single cation-pi interactions in Sm/LSm interfaces. We have found hot spot residues forming cation-pi interactions, and hot spot composition is similar for all aromatic residues. The Arg-Phe pair has the strongest interaction energy of -8.81 kcal mol(-1) among all the possible pairs of amino acids. The extent of burial of the residue side-chain correlates with the Delta Delta G of binding for residues in the core and also for hot spot residues cation-pi bonded across the interface. Secondary structure of the cation...-pi ...
The expression of plant shikimate kinase (SK; EC, an intermediate step in the shikimate pathway to aromatic amino acid biosynthesis, is induced under specific conditions of environmental stress and developmental requirements in an isoform-specific manner. Despite their important physiological role, experimental structures of plant SKs have not been determined and the biochemical nature of plant SK regulation is unknown. The Arabidopsis thaliana genome encodes two SKs, AtSK1 and AtSK2. We demonstrate that AtSK2 is highly unstable and becomes inactivated at 37 degrees C whereas the heat-induced isoform, AtSK1, is thermostable and fully active under identical conditions at this temperature. We determined the crystal structure of AtSK2, the first SK structure from the plant kingdom, and conducted biophysical characterizations of both AtSK1 and AtSK2 towards understanding this mechanism of thermal regulation. The crystal structure of AtSK2 is generally conserved with bacterial SKs with the ...

The role of aromatic and nonaromatic amino acids in amyloid formation has been elucidated by calculating interaction energies between β-sheets in amyloid model systems using density functional theory (B3LYP-D3/6-31G*). The model systems were based on experimental crystal structures of two types of amyloids: (1) with aromatic amino acids, and (2) without aromatic amino acids. Data show that these two types of amyloids have similar interaction energies, supporting experimental findings that aromat

Correct Answer: D.. Aromatic compounds follow four rules: (1) They are conjugated-there needs to one p orbital from each atom in the ring, so each atom must be either sp2 or sp hybridized; 2) They are cyclic: linear systems are not aromatic; 3) They are planar: there is good overlap/interaction between p orbitals; 4) they follow the The Huckel Rule-4n+2 pi electrons in the cyclic conjugated pi system (n = 0, 1, 2, 3 etc ...

While these hydroprocessed biofuel fractions can meet various standards required of their petroleum derived counterparts, their carbon footprint is greatly reduced according to U.S. government GHG emission accounting practices, in which emissions associated with the combustion of biomass derived fuels are not reported in the GHG emission value based on LCA, as discussed above. According to particular embodiments of the invention, in which the hydroprocessed biofuel or other hydroprocessed biofuel fraction(s) is derived completely from ...
Mutations in the basic branch of the aromatic amino acid biosynthesis pathway proved to be efficient in attenuating virulence, e.g., in Listeria monocytogenes (57), Shigella dysenteriae (62), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (44), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (9), and Bacillus anthracis (27), but they failed to do so in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (41). The main objective of this study was to ascertain whether an aro mutant of S. aureus could be attenuated and immunogenic. To do this, mutagenesis by transposition was chosen as a preliminary method. The results obtained in this investigation encourage us to begin the construction of an unmarked aroA deletion mutant of S. aureus to be utilized in field trials.. Target genes may be inactivated by integration of a transposable element. Such inactivation is usually the consequence of transcriptional interruption or of a negative polar effect on the expression of genes located downstream (15, 20). In this report, we describe the isolation and characterization of an S. ...
Researches at Prof. Gad Galili s lab elicited a significant increase in the direct products of the shikimate pathway and in the aromatic amino acid Phenylalanine. A central regulator in the shikimate pathway is the first committed enzyme of the pathway; 3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate synthase (DAHPS). The bacterial DAHPS is feedback inhibited by a separate amino acid. At the core of this technology is the dominant isoform that is the AroG gene which is under the regulation of Phenylalanine and responsible for 80% of the total DAHPS activity.. By expressing a mutant bacterial AroG gene encoding a feedback insensitive DAHPS in transgenic Arabidopsis plants, researchers achieved increased levels of the shikimate direct metabolites, products and aromatic amino acids. Detailed analysis revealed that while no metabolite exhibited decreased levels in the transgenic plants, the levels of shikimate intermediate metabolites, phenylalanine, tryptophan, and a verity of secondary metabolites ...
Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is an essential cofactor for the aromatic amino acid hydroxylases, alkylglycerol monooxygenase, and nitric oxide synthases (NOS). Inborn errors of BH4 metabolism lead to severe insufficiency of brain monoamine neurotransmitters while augmentation of BH4 by supplementation or stimulation of its biosynthesis is thought to ameliorate endothelial NOS (eNOS) dysfunction, to protect from (cardio-) vascular disease and/or prevent obesity and development of the metabolic syndrome. We have previously reported that homozygous knock-out mice for the 6-pyruvolytetrahydropterin synthase (PTPS; Pts-ko/ko) mice with no BH4 biosynthesis die after birth. Here we generated a Pts-knock-in (Pts-ki) allele expressing the murine PTPS-p.Arg15Cys with low residual activity (15% of wild-type in vitro) and investigated homozygous (Pts-ki/ki) and compound heterozygous (Pts-ki/ko) mutants. All mice showed normal viability and depending on the severity of the Pts alleles exhibited up to 90% reduction of

High fasting plasma concentrations of isoleucine, phenylalanine, and tyrosine have been associated with increased risk of hyperglycaemia and incidence of type 2 diabetes. Whether these associations are diet or metabolism driven is unknown. We examined how the dietary protein source affects the postprandial circulating profile of these three diabetes associated amino acids (DMAAs) and tested whether the postprandial DMAA profiles are associated with fasting glycaemia. We used a crossover design with twenty-one healthy individuals and four different isocaloric test meals, containing proteins from different dietary sources (dairy, fish, meat, and plants). Analysis of the postprandial DMAAs concentrations was performed using targeted mass spectrometry. A DMAA score was defined as the sum of all the three amino acid concentrations. The postprandial area under the curve (AUC) of all the three amino acids and the DMAA score was significantly greater after intake of the meal with dairy protein compared to
In 5187 persons from the Cardiovascular Health Study, there was no significant association of dietary intakes of aromatic amino acids (AAA) with areal BMD of the hip or body composition. However, those who had the lowest dietary intakes of AAA were at increased risk for incident hip fractures. Prior studies of the association of protein intake with osteoporosis are conflicting and have not directly examined the relationship of aromatic amino acids (AAA) with fractures, areal bone mineral density (aBMD), and body composition. We sought to determine the relationship of dietary intakes of AAA with osteoporosis parameters in elderly men and women. 5187 men and women aged ≥ 65 years from the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) with dietary intakes of AAA (tryptophan, phenylalanine, tyrosine) estimated by food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) were included. We examined the relationship between a one-time estimate of daily dietary AAA intake with risk of incident hip fractures over a median of 13.2 years ...
Here, we investigate the strengths of R-X···π interactions, involving both chlorine and bromine, in model systems derived from protein-ligand complexes found in the PDB. We find that the strengths of these interactions can vary significantly, with binding energies ranging from −2.01 to −3.60 kcal/mol. Symmetry adapted perturbation theory (SAPT) analysis shows that, as would be expected, dispersion plays the largest role in stabilizing these R-X···π interactions, generally accounting for about 50% to 80% of attraction. R-Br···π interactions are, for the most part, found to be stronger than R-Cl···π interactions, although the relative geometries of the interacting pair and the halogens chemical environment can also have a strong impact. The two factors that have the strongest impact on the strength of these R-X···π interactions is the distance between the halogen and the phenyl plane as well as the size of the halogen σ-hole.
Cation-π interaction is a non-covalent binding force that plays a significant role in protein stability and drug-receptor interactions. In this work, we have investigated the structural role of cation-π interactions in sugar-binding proteins (SBPs). We observed 212 cation-π interactions in 53 proteins out of 59 SBPs in dataset. There is an average one energetically significant cation-π interaction for every 66 residues in SBPs. In addition, Arg is highly preferred to form cation-π interactions, and the average energy of Arg-Trp is high among six pairs. Long-range interactions are predominant in the analyzed cation-π interactions. Comparatively, all interaction pairs favor to accommodate in strand conformations. The analysis of solvent accessible area indicates that most of the aromatic residues are found on buried or partially buried whereas cationic residues were found mostly on the exposed regions of protein. The cation-π interactions forming residues were found that around 43% of cation-π
Carbohydrate - receptor interactions are an integral part of biological events. They play an important role in many cellular processes, such as cell-cell adhesion, cell differentiation and in-cell signaling. Carbohydrates can interact with a receptor by using several types of intermolecular interactions. One of the most important is the interaction of a carbohydrates apolar part with aromatic amino acid residues, known as dispersion interaction or CH/π interaction. In the study presented here, we attempted for the first time to quantify how the CH/π interaction contributes to a more general carbohydrate - protein interaction. We used a combined experimental approach, creating single and double point mutants with high level computational methods, and applied both to Ralstonia solanacearum (RSL) lectin complexes with α-l-Me-fucoside. Experimentally measured binding affinities were compared with computed carbohydrate-aromatic amino acid residue interaction energies. Experimental binding affinities for
To paraphrase, occasionally a protein is valuable in and of by itself, and at other periods it is effective for the person amino acids that it consists of. You can find ongoing debates about the best way to evaluate the wellness Positive aspects affiliated with the amino acid information of proteins. These debates fall under the heading of protein good quality, and you may find out more relating to this difficulty inside our amino acids profile . However, regardless of the certain approach thats taken to protein top quality, we feel that it is useful to take in proteins which are loaded in a variety of diverse amino acids. One example is, we feel that sulfur-made up of amino acids Have got a Distinctive price all their own individual, in the same way as branched-chain amino acids or aromatic amino acids. The best way to get a wealthy range of amino acids from every one of these scaled-down amino acid subgroups is usually to often take pleasure in a variety of foods. A lot more especially, we ...
TWIGASATE is a broad spectrum, systemic and non-selective post-emergence herbicide for control of annual and perennial grasses and broad-leaved weeds in crops.The active ingredient(glyphosate) is quickly absorbed by foliage and green stems upon application with rapid translocation through the phloem to the growing points of the plant, above and below the soil (shoots, roots, rhizomes, stolons). It acts by inhibiting synthesis of essential aromatic amino acids which are needed for protein biosynthesis. This is vital for growth and survival of plants. TWIGASATE is inactivated on contact with soil. Weed growth stops within 24 hours after application with visual symptoms of control(chlorosis) being noticed 3-7 days after application. ...
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lingtao Kong.. Aromatic oligomers constitute a distinct and promising class of synthetic foldamers - oligomers that adopt stable folded conformations. Single helical structures are, to a large extent, predictable, show unprecedented conformational stability, and represent convenient building blocks to elaborate synthetic, very large (protein-sized) folded architectures. This lecture will give an overview of our current efforts to design abiotic tertiary structures based on aromatic scaffolds,[1] to prepare and select (as opposed to design) aromatic foldamer-peptide hybrid architectures,[2,3] and to use aromatic foldamers to recognize sizeable protein surfaces.[4,5].

Azapeptide analogues of growth hormone releasing peptide-6 (GHRP-6) exhibit promising affinity, selectivity, and modulator activity on the cluster of differentiation 36 receptor (CD36). For example, [A(1), azaF(4)]- and [azaY(4)]-GHRP-6 (1a and 2b) were previously shown to bind selectively to CD36 and exhibited respectively significant antiangiogenic and slight angiogenic activities in a microvascular sprouting assay using choroid explants. The influences of the 1- and 4-position residues on the affinity, anti-inflammatory, and antiangiogenic activity of these azapeptides have now been studied in detail by the synthesis and analysis of a set of 25 analogues featuring Ala(1) or His(1) and a variety of aromatic side chains at the aza-amino acid residue in the 4-position ...
