GroES in the asymmetric GroEL14-GroES7 complex exchanges via an associative mechanism. (1/481)

The interaction of the chaperonin GroEL14 with its cochaperonin GroES7 is dynamic, involving stable, asymmetric 1:1 complexes (GroES7.GroEL7-GroEL7) and transient, metastable symmetric 2:1 complexes [GroES7.GroEL7-GroEL7.GroES7]. The transient formation of a 2:1 complex permits exchange of free GroES7 for GroES7 bound in the stable 1:1 complex. Electrophoresis in the presence of ADP was used to resolve free GroEL14 from the GroES7-GroEL14 complex. Titration of GroEL14 with radiolabeled GroES7 to molar ratios of 32:1 demonstrated a 1:1 limiting stoichiometry in a stable complex. No stable 2:1 complex was detected. Preincubation of the asymmetric GroES7.GroEL7-GroEL7 complex with excess unlabeled GroES7 in the presence of ADP demonstrated GroES7 exchange. The rates of GroES7 exchange were proportional to the concentration of unlabeled free GroES7. This concentration dependence points to an associative mechanism in which exchange of GroES7 occurs by way of a transient 2:1 complex and excludes a dissociative mechanism in which exchange occurs by way of free GroEL14. Exchange of radiolabeled ADP from 1:1 complexes was much slower than the exchange of GroES7. In agreement with recent structural studies, this indicates that conformational changes in GroEL14 following the dissociation of GroES7 must precede ADP release. These results explain how the GroEL14 cavity can become reversibly accessible to proteins under in vivo conditions that favor 2:1 complexes.  (+info)

The role of DnaK/DnaJ and GroEL/GroES systems in the removal of endogenous proteins aggregated by heat-shock from Escherichia coli cells. (2/481)

The submission of Escherichia coli cells to heat-shock (45 degrees C, 15 min) caused the intracellular aggregation of endogenous proteins. In the wt cells the aggregates (the S fraction) disappeared 10 min after transfer to 37 degrees C. In contrast, the S fraction in the dnaK and dnaJ mutant strains was stable during approximately one generation time (45 min). This demonstrated that neither the renaturation nor the degradation of the denatured proteins was possible in the absence of DnaK and DnaJ. The groEL44 and groES619 mutations stabilised the aggregates to a lesser extent. It was shown by the use of cloned genes, dnaK/dnaJ or groEL/groES, producing the corresponding proteins in about 4-fold excess, that the appearance of the S fraction in the wt strain resulted from a transiently insufficient supply of the heat-shock proteins. Overproduction of the GroEL/GroES proteins in dnaK756 or dnaJ259 background prevented the aggregation, however, overproduction of the DnaK/DnaJ proteins did not prevent the aggregation in the groEL44 or groES619 mutant cells although it accelerated the disappearance of the aggregates. The properties of the aggregated proteins are discussed from the point of view of their competence to renaturation/degradation by the heat-shock system.  (+info)

GroEL/GroES-dependent reconstitution of alpha2 beta2 tetramers of humanmitochondrial branched chain alpha-ketoacid decarboxylase. Obligatory interaction of chaperonins with an alpha beta dimeric intermediate. (3/481)

The decarboxylase component (E1) of the human mitochondrial branched chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase multienzyme complex (approximately 4-5 x 10(3) kDa) is a thiamine pyrophosphate-dependent enzyme, comprising two 45.5-kDa alpha subunits and two 37.8-kDa beta subunits. In the present study, His6-tagged E1 alpha2 beta2 tetramers (171 kDa) denatured in 8 M urea were competently reconstituted in vitro at 23 degrees C with an absolute requirement for chaperonins GroEL/GroES and Mg-ATP. Unexpectedly, the kinetics for the recovery of E1 activity was very slow with a rate constant of 290 M-1 s-1. Renaturation of E1 with a similarly slow kinetics was also achieved using individual GroEL-alpha and GroEL-beta complexes as combined substrates. However, the beta subunit was markedly more prone to misfolding than the alpha in the absence of GroEL. The alpha subunit was released as soluble monomers from the GroEL-alpha complex alone in the presence of GroES and Mg-ATP. In contrast, the beta subunit discharged from the GroEL-beta complex readily rebound to GroEL when the alpha subunit was absent. Analysis of the assembly state showed that the His6-alpha and beta subunits released from corresponding GroEL-polypeptide complexes assembled into a highly structured but inactive 85.5-kDa alpha beta dimeric intermediate, which subsequently dimerized to produce the active alpha2 beta2 tetrameter. The purified alpha beta dimer isolated from Escherichia coli lysates was capable of binding to GroEL to produce a stable GroEL-alpha beta ternary complex. Incubation of this novel ternary complex with GroES and Mg-ATP resulted in recovery of E1 activity, which also followed slow kinetics with a rate constant of 138 M-1 s-1. Dimers were regenerated from the GroEL-alpha beta complex, but they needed to interact with GroEL/GroES again, thereby perpetuating the cycle until the conversion from dimers to tetramers was complete. Our study describes an obligatory role of chaperonins in priming the dimeric intermediate for subsequent tetrameric assembly, which is a slow step in the reconstitution of E1 alpha2 beta2 tetramers.  (+info)

Mechanisms for GroEL/GroES-mediated folding of a large 86-kDa fusion polypeptide in vitro. (4/481)

Our understanding of mechanisms for GroEL/GroES-assisted protein folding to date has been derived mostly from studies with small proteins. Little is known concerning the interaction of these chaperonins with large multidomain polypeptides during folding. In the present study, we investigated chaperonin-dependent folding of a large 86-kDa fusion polypeptide, in which the mature maltose-binding protein (MBP) sequence was linked to the N terminus of the alpha subunit of the decarboxylase (E1) component of the human mitochondrial branched-chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase complex. The fusion polypeptide, MBP-alpha, when co-expressed with the beta subunit of E1, produced a chimeric protein MBP-E1 with an (MBP-alpha)2beta2 structure, similar to the alpha2 beta2 structure in native E1. Reactivation of MBP-E1 denatured in 8 M urea was absolutely dependent on GroEL/GroES and Mg2+-ATP, and exhibited strikingly slow kinetics with a rate constant of 376 M-1 s-1, analogous to denatured untagged E1. Chaperonin-mediated refolding of the MBP-alpha fusion polypeptide showed that the folding of the MBP moiety was about 7-fold faster than that of the alpha moiety on the same chain with rate constants of 1.9 x 10(-3) s-1 and 2.95 x 10(-4) s-1, respectively. This explained the occurrence of an MBP-alpha. GroEL binary complex that was isolated with amylose resin from the refolding mixture and transformed Escherichia coli lysates. The data support the thesis that distinct functional sequences in a large polypeptide exhibit different folding characteristics on the same GroEL scaffold. Moreover, we show that when the alpha.GroEL complex (molar ratio 1:1) was incubated with GroES, the latter was capable of capping either the very ring that harbored the 48-kDa (His)6-alpha polypeptide (in cis) or the opposite unoccupied cavity (in trans). In contrast, the MBP-alpha.GroEL (1:1) complex was capped by GroES exclusively in the trans configuration. These findings suggest that the productive folding of a large multidomain polypeptide can only occur in the GroEL cavity that is not sequestered by GroES.  (+info)

Presence of a pre-apoptotic complex of pro-caspase-3, Hsp60 and Hsp10 in the mitochondrial fraction of jurkat cells. (5/481)

Activation of pro-caspase-3 is a central event in the execution phase of apoptosis and appears to serve as the convergence point of different apoptotic signaling pathways. Recently, mitochondria were found to play a central role in apoptosis through release of cytochrome c and activation of caspases. Moreover, a sub-population of pro-caspase-3 has been found to be localized to this organelle. In the present study, we demonstrate that pro-caspase-3 is present in the mitochondrial fraction of Jurkat T cells in a complex with the chaperone proteins Hsp60 and Hsp10. Induction of apoptosis with staurosporine led to the activation of mitochondrial pro-caspase-3 and its dissociation from the Hsps which were released from mitochondria. The release of Hsps occurred simultaneously with the release of other mitochondrial intermembrane space proteins including cytochrome c and adenylate kinase, prior to a loss of mitochondrial transmembrane potential. In in vitro systems, recombinant Hsp60 and Hsp10 accelerated the activation of pro-caspase-3 by cytochrome c and dATP in an ATP-dependent manner, consistent with their function as chaperones. This finding suggests that the release of mitochondrial Hsps may also accelerate caspase activation in the cytoplasm of intact cells.  (+info)

Chaperonin function: folding by forced unfolding. (6/481)

The ability of the GroEL chaperonin to unfold a protein trapped in a misfolded condition was detected and studied by hydrogen exchange. The GroEL-induced unfolding of its substrate protein is only partial, requires the complete chaperonin system, and is accomplished within the 13 seconds required for a single system turnover. The binding of nucleoside triphosphate provides the energy for a single unfolding event; multiple turnovers require adenosine triphosphate hydrolysis. The substrate protein is released on each turnover even if it has not yet refolded to the native state. These results suggest that GroEL helps partly folded but blocked proteins to fold by causing them first to partially unfold. The structure of GroEL seems well suited to generate the nonspecific mechanical stretching force required for forceful protein unfolding.  (+info)

GroEL-GroES cycling: ATP and nonnative polypeptide direct alternation of folding-active rings. (7/481)

The double-ring chaperonin GroEL mediates protein folding in the central cavity of a ring bound by ATP and GroES, but it is unclear how GroEL cycles from one folding-active complex to the next. We observe that hydrolysis of ATP within the cis ring must occur before either nonnative polypeptide or GroES can bind to the trans ring, and this is associated with reorientation of the trans ring apical domains. Subsequently, formation of a new cis-ternary complex proceeds on the open trans ring with polypeptide binding first, which stimulates the ATP-dependent dissociation of the cis complex (by 20- to 50-fold), followed by GroES binding. These results indicate that, in the presence of nonnative protein, GroEL alternates its rings as folding-active cis complexes, expending only one round of seven ATPs per folding cycle.  (+info)

Previously undetected Chlamydia trachomatis infection, immunity to heat shock proteins and tubal occlusion in women undergoing in-vitro fertilization. (8/481)

The relationship between a previously undetected Chlamydia trachomatis infection, tubal infertility, immunity to heat shock proteins and subsequent in-vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome was evaluated. Women with tubal occlusion, with or without hydrosalpinges, and no history of C. trachomatis infection were tested for circulating antibodies to the human 60-kDa heat shock protein (Hhsp60), the C. trachomatis 10-kDa heat shock protein (Chsp10) and C. trachomatis surface antigens prior to their initial IVF cycle. Sera were obtained from 50 women whose male partners were infertile, 58 women with tubal occlusion but no hydrosalpinx and 39 women with tubal occlusions plus hydrosalpinx. Clinical pregnancies were documented in 68% of the women with male factor infertility. This was higher than the 43.1% rate in women with tubal occlusions (P = 0.04) and the 41% rate in women with hydrosalpinx (P = 0.02). C. trachomatis antibodies were present in one (2%) women with male factor infertility as opposed to 15 (25.9%) women with tubal occlusion (P = 0.003) and 13 (33%) with hydrosalpinx (P < 0.0001). Antibodies to Chsp10 were more prevalent in women with hydrosalpinx (46.8%) than in women with male factor infertility (P < 0.0001, 6%) or tubal occlusion (P = 0.0009, 15.5%). Hhsp60 antibodies were equally more prevalent in women with tubal occlusion plus (46.8%) or minus hydrosalpinx (41.4%) than in women with male factor infertility (P < 0.0002). Hhsp60 was more prevalent in those women positive for Chsp10 (P = 0.02) or C. trachomatis (P = 0.04) antibodies than in women lacking these antibodies. There was no relationship between any of the antibodies measured in sera and IVF outcome.  (+info)

The human mitochondrial chaperonin is a macromolecular machine that catalyzes the proper folding and assembly of newly imported mitochondrial proteins into their biologically active state. It is composed of two proteins from the highly conserved heat shock protein family, hsp10 and hsp60, that assemble into large oligomeric complexes responsible for mediating the folding of non-native polypeptides in an ATP dependent manner. In addition to its innate role in protein folding, human mitochondrial hsp60 has been implicated in numerous moonlighting cellular activities that have been linked to diseases conditions such as cancer and neurodegeneracy. In light of its cellular importance, the conditions that propel the human mitochondrial chaperonin through its protein folding mechanism are not well understood. Here I propose a protein folding scheme for the mitochondrial chaperonin based on negative stain electron microscopy 3-D reconstructions. I found that the human mitochondrial chaperonin complex
Recently, we discovered and studied the first virus-encoded chaperonin of bacteriophage EL Pseudomonas aeruginosa, gene product (gp) 146. In the present work, we performed bioinformatics analysis of currently predicted GroEL-like proteins encoded by phage genomes in comparison with cellular and mitochondrial chaperonins. Putative phage chaperonins share a low similarity and do not form a monophyletic group; nevertheless, they are closer to bacterial chaperonins in the phylogenetic tree. Experimental investigation of putative GroEL-like chaperonin proteins has been continued by physicochemical and functional characterization of gp246 encoded by the genome of Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteriophage OBP. Unlike the more usual double-ring architecture of chaperonins, including the EL gp146, the recombinant gp246 produced by E. coli cells has been purified as a single heptameric ring. It possesses an ATPase activity and does not require a co-chaperonin for its functioning. In vitro experiments ...
GroEL/GroES is the only chaperone machine of E. coli that is absolutely essential for bacterial survival under all laboratory conditions tested (Fayetet al. 1989). GroEL/GroES homologs are found in all organisms except in some Archaea species (Macarioet al. 1999) and the recently sequenced Ureaplasmum urealyticum mycobacterium (Glasset al. 2000). The E. coli GroEL chaperone can function not only with its own GroES cochaperone, but also with bacteriophage-encoded cochaperones, such as the bacteriophage T4-encoded Gp31 cochaperone (van der Vieset al. 1994) or the bacteriophage RB49-encoded CocO cochaperone (Ang et al. 2000, 2001). Apparently, the bacteriophage-encoded cochaperones are uniquely qualified to help in the folding of the major bacteriophage-encoded capsid protein, Gp23 (Laemmliet al. 1970; Georgopouloset al. 1972; van der Vieset al. 1994; Andreadis and Black 1998; Anget al. 2000). Yet, Gp31 and CocO can also help GroEL in its generalized chaperone function, since either can substitute ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Interactions of GroEL/GroES with a heterodimeric intermediate during α2β2 assembly of mitochondrial branched-chain α-ketoacid dehydrogenase. T2 - cis capping of the native-like 86-kDa intermediate by GroES. AU - Song, Jiu Li. AU - Wynn, R. Max. AU - Chuang, David T.. PY - 2000/7/21. Y1 - 2000/7/21. N2 - We showed previously that the interaction of an αβ heterodimeric intermediate with GroEL/GroES is essential for efficient α2β2 assembly of human mitochondrial branched-chain α-ketoacid dehydrogenase. In the present study, we further characterized the mode of interaction between the chaperonins and the native-like αβ heterodimer. The αβ heterodimer, as an intact entity, was found to bind to GroEL at a 1:1 stoichiometry with a K(D) of 1.1 x 10-7 M. The 1:1 molar ratio of the GroEL-αβ complex was confirmed by the ability of the complex to bind a stoichiometric amount of denatured lysozyme in the trans cavity. Surprisingly, in the presence of MgADP, GroES was able to cap ...
Heat shock 10 kDa protein 1 (Hsp10) also known as chaperonin 10 (cpn10) or early-pregnancy factor (EPF) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HSPE1 gene. The homolog in E. coli is GroES that is a chaperonin which usually works in conjunction with GroEL. GroES exists as a ring-shaped oligomer of between six and eight identical subunits, while the 60 kDa chaperonin (cpn60 - or groEL in bacteria) forms a structure comprising 2 stacked rings, each ring containing 7 identical subunits. These ring structures assemble by self-stimulation in the presence of Mg2+-ATP. The central cavity of the cylindrical cpn60 tetradecamer provides an isolated environment for protein folding whilst cpn-10 binds to cpn-60 and synchronizes the release of the folded protein in an Mg2+-ATP dependent manner. The binding of cpn10 to cpn60 inhibits the weak ATPase activity of cpn60. Escherichia coli GroES has also been shown to bind ATP cooperatively, and with an affinity comparable to that of GroEL. Each GroEL subunit ...

Protein-protein interactions are of fundamental importance to molecular biology because they determine a wide array of protein structures and functions. In addition to heterogeneous protein-protein complexes, many proteins are oligomeric due to the association of identical subunits. In fact, the majority, 70-80 %, of all enzymes are oligomeric [1]. The function of quaternary structure, i.e. the arrangement of multiple subunits into an oligomer, may be to allow for cooperative effects, formation of novel active sites, provide additional stability, increase solubility or decrease osmotic pressure [2]. The folding pathways of only a few oligomeric proteins (mostly dimers and tetramers) have been reported, revealing a variety of mechanisms [3-7]. Some proteins display monomeric or dimeric intermediates (e.g. E. coli Trp repressor and the ATPase SecA [8, 9]) whereas other fold in apparent two-state reactions in which folding and oligomerization are coupled (e.g. P22 Arc repressor [10, 11]). It ...

Here, we study and compare the mechanisms of action of the GroEL/GroES and the TRiC chaperonin systems on MreB client protein variants extracted from E. coli. MreB is a homologue to actin in prokaryotes. Single-molecule fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) and time-resolved fluorescence polarization anisotropy report the binding interaction of folding MreB with GroEL, GroES and TRiC. Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) measurements on MreB variants quantified molecular distance changes occurring during conformational rearrangements within folding MreB bound to chaperonins. We observed that the MreB structure is rearranged by a binding-induced expansion mechanism in TRiC, GroEL and GroES. These results are quantitatively comparable to the structural rearrangements found during the interaction of beta-actin with GroEL and TRiC, indicating that the mechanism of chaperonins is conserved during evolution. The chaperonin-bound MreB is also significantly compacted after addition of ...
In Mycobacterium tuberculosis there are 2 distinct groEL homologues which encode the chaperonins Cpn60.1 and Cpn60.2, with the latter predicted to be the main house-keeping chaperonin. Phylogenetic analysis has revealed that the genes for the duplicated chaperonins diverged a long time ago. This implies that the duplicated chaperonins have evolved for different cellular functions. Interestingly, while most chaperonins occur as stable large complexes with a characteristic double ring structure of 14 subunits, the Mycobacterial chaperonins are very unstable and appear to form much smaller complexes. Given that the large structures formed by most chaperonins are vital to their mechanism of action, it is unclear why the oligomers are so much less stable in Mycobacteria. In this study I present detailed functional and oligomeric analysis of the M. tuberculosis chaperonins. Using various biological techniques, including complementation assays, site directed mutagenesis, and domain swap experiments; I ...

A lens shutter camera includes a distance adjusting mechanism which is operated by the rotation of a single ring in one direction as it is driven by a drive source such as a motor. A distance adjustment is performed by a movement of a movable taking lens barrel in the direction of an optical axis thereof. Rotation of the ring in the other direction operates a lens shutter mechanism to open the shutter blades. A shutter closing spring is charged by a shutter controlling electromagnet, and is enabled to close the shutter blades.

The substrate recognition mechanisms in chaperonins Chaperonins are a family of proteins devoted to assisting the folding of other proteins. They are large oligomers assembled into ring structures that enclose a cavity in which folding takes place. For this process to occur, the chaperonin must first recognize and interact with the unfolded polypeptide, then undergo a conformational change upon nucleotide binding that results in the closure of the cavity which in turn mediates the folding reaction inside the cavity. Although this general mechanism seems to apply to every chaperonin studied so far, there exist two different modes of interaction between the chaperonin and the substrate. The first occurs mainly through the interaction between the exposed hydrophobic residues of the unfolded polypeptides and those of the chaperonin substrate binding site, as elucidated for the chaperonin GroEL from E. coli. The second type of mechanism has been described so far only for the cytosolic chaperonin CCT ...
Fullerenes are spherical molecular structures made of a single carbon layer. The most famous fullerene is the C60, a football-shaped object of 60 carbon atoms. Despite these molecules being of technological relevance, for example in organic solar cells and medical research, chemists find it difficult to tinker with fullerenes, because they dissolve only in a few toxic solvents.. Now, solvation scientist Guido Clever from TU Dort-mund University and colleagues from Nagasaki University, Japan, describe supramolecular cage- and bowl-like structures that can host fullerenes and dissolve them in many more solvents. Their results have been published on 8 May 2019 in the online edition of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.. "In this paper we show how to solubilize notoriously insoluble fullerenes in a number of polar organic solvents which then allows chemical modification of the fullerenes", says Clever. To demonstrate the new approach towards the solvation of fullerenes, the Clever Lab ...

TRS Technologies proposes novel single crystal piezomotors for large torque, high precision, and cryogenic actuation with capability of position set-hold with power-off for passive optics platforms. The proposed concept will advance the state-of-art cryogenic rotary motors considering the excellent cryogenic properties of single crystal piezoelectric. This material exhibits d33 and d31 at 30K similar or higher than that of PZT at room temperature and it has a very high electromechanical coupling. These properties result in an excellent figure of merit for resonant devices. TRS and Va. Tech. will use single crystals to fabricate "wobbling mode" and "flexural traveling wave" piezomotors with "33 mode" single ring stacks and plate stacks instead of the conventional "31" mode plates for excitation.

doubles mentioned above are plotted, together with a selected list of 6 small singles particularly deficient in red tissues. They are, 1904 double once in 10, 1902 double once in 10, 1899 single, 1895 single, 1894 single, and 1880 double once in 10. In these it is evident that drought in the spring stops the growth of the tree. The double ring, therefore, seems to be an intermediate form between the large normal single ring, growing through the warm parts of the year, and the small, deficient ring, ending its growth by midsummer. This occasional failure to benefit by the summer rains probably explains why the Prescott trees do not show an agreement of more than about 70 per cent between growth and rainfall. It suggests also that the Flagstaff trees, which grow under conditions of more rainfall and have very few double rings, give a more accurate record than those of Prescott.. Consistent with this view of the doubling is the condition of the outer ring in the Prescott sections collected by Mr. ...

Non-cytotoxic Fc receptor blocking antibodies against autologous B lymphocytes were sought in sera from patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), using a rosette inhibition assay. They were found in 11 of 52 (21%) of patients with CLL, but were not associated with previous blood transfusion or pregnancy, suggesting that they were unlikely to have resulted from allogeneic stimulation. Fc receptor blockade was more commonly detected in sera from patients with stage B rather than stage A CLL (Binet classification), though this did not achieve significance beyond the 90% level, and it was noted in 62.5% of those with lymphocyte doubling times of less than one year, compared with 36.3% of those whose lymphocyte doubling time was more than one year. The results indicate that autologous Fc receptor blocking antibody activity occurs in sera from patients with CLL, is more likely to be generated by the tumour itself than by allogeneic stimulation, and is associated with increased tumour load. ...

What are the implications of the CCT-mediated actin folding mechanism for the structure and function of F-actin? Reisler & Egelman (2007) have collated many disparate observations concerning biochemical and structural properties of F-actin and argued convincingly that F-actin should not be considered to be a single state but rather a dynamic ensemble of many states. Transitions between states are probably coupled to rotations and tilts of subunits, which occur readily despite the apparently severe structural constraint of a constant axial rise of every subunit in the filament of approximately 27.3 Å. Put succinctly, in its breathing modes F-actin changes its shape more than its length.. The emerging view of time-correlated motions and protein function is that active enzymatic or ligand-binding states reflect configurations that pre-exist in the ensemble. In adenylate kinase, the catalytically competent closed state is occasionally sampled on microseconds-milliseconds time scales even in the ...

Actin requires the chaperonin containing TCP1 (CCT), a hexadecameric ATPase essential for cell viability in eukaryotes, to fold to its native state. Following binding of unfolded actin to CCT, the cavity of the chaperone closes and actin is folded and released in an ATP-dependent folding cycle. In yeast, CCT forms a ternary complex with the phosducin-like protein PLP2p to fold actin, and together they can return nascent or chemically denatured actin to its native state in a pure in vitro folding assay. The complexity of the CCT-actin system makes the study of the actin folding mechanism technically challenging. We have established a novel spectroscopic assay through selectively labeling the C terminus of yeast actin with acrylodan and observe significant changes in the acrylodan fluorescence emission spectrum as actin is chemically unfolded and then refolded by the chaperonin. The variation in the polarity of the environment surrounding the fluorescent probe during the unfolding/folding ...

Stonustoxin (SNTX) is a 148kDa, dimeric, multifunctional protein isolated from stonefish Synanceja horrida. SNTX (10-640ng/ml) progressively causes vasorelaxation to endothelium-intact, PE-precontracted rat thoracic aortic rings. The vasorelaxation was inhibited by L-NAME, PAG and BCA. Use of L-NAME with PAG or BCA showed that H2S works synergistically with NO to bring about SNTX-induced vasorelaxation. This is the first report on the involvement of H2S working together with NO to mediate a toxina??s biological effect. Interestingly, an unexpected transient increase in tone of resting rat thoracic aortic rings was observed with L-cysteine. SNTX possesses a novel B30.2 domain in each subunit. Expression and purification of Glutathione-S-transferase-B30.2 fusion proteins from E. coli BL21 resulted in co-expression of chaperonin GroEL and aggregation of fusion proteins into inclusion bodies. The proteins were not active in vasorelaxation and further studies need to be conducted ...

Alcoholism is as common as the liver diseases it can lead to. As of 2015, it was reported that 2.5 million people were treated for alcohol abuse. Two years earlier, reports showed that 24.6 percent of people over the age of eighteen were actively binge drinking.. For all you bibbers out there banging down brewskies like theyre mothers milk, you should be forewarned. The liver is vital because it performs many functions in the body. This football-shaped organ processes everything we put into our bodies, breaking down food and drink to provide nutrients and give us energy. It is responsible for filtering out substances that are deleterious from our blood.. Alcohol damages our liver cells and causes an acute uptake in dangerous liver enzymes. The liver is compromised when you consume more alcohol than it can process. This leads to a number of unwanted conditions including alcoholic hepatitis, alcoholic cirrhosis and fatty liver disease. As a chronic alcoholic myself, I can attest to the fact that ...

Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 E3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the UBE2E3 gene.[5][6] The modification of proteins with ubiquitin is an important cellular mechanism for targeting abnormal or short-lived proteins for degradation. Ubiquitination involves at least three classes of enzymes: ubiquitin-activating enzymes, or E1s, ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes, or E2s, and ubiquitin-protein ligases, or E3s. This gene encodes a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. The encoded protein shares 100% sequence identity with the mouse and rat counterparts, which indicates that this enzyme is highly conserved in eukaryotes. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.[6] ...

  • However, the group II chapronins have several characters distinct from the group I chaperonins: the former consists of 16 or 18 subunits and uses a built-in lid called helical protrusion to close the cylindrical structure [8,10]. (scirp.org)
  • Belongs to the GroES chaperonin family. (abcam.com)
  • The homolog in E. coli is GroES that is a chaperonin which usually works in conjunction with GroEL. (wikipedia.org)
  • GroES exists as a ring-shaped oligomer of between six and eight identical subunits, while the 60 kDa chaperonin (cpn60 - or groEL in bacteria) forms a structure comprising 2 stacked rings, each ring containing 7 identical subunits. (wikipedia.org)
  • The identical 10 kDa subunits of GroES form a dome-like heptameric oligomer in solution. (wikipedia.org)
  • After a period of 10-15 sec, the longest step in the chaperonin cycle, the ATP in the cis ring hydrolyzes (T→D, third panel), reducing the affinity of GroEL for the bound GroES, "priming" the ring for dissociation of GroES when ATP binds to the opposite GroEL ring (fourth panel). (hhmi.org)
