R73A and H144Q mutants of the yeast mitochondrial cyclophilin Cpr3 exhibit a low prolyl isomerase activity in both peptide and protein-folding assays. (1/2760)

Previously we reported that the R73A and H144Q variants of the yeast cyclophilin Cpr3 were virtually inactive in a protease-coupled peptide assay, but retained activity as catalysts of a proline-limited protein folding reaction [Scholz, C. et al. (1997) FEBS Lett. 414, 69-73]. A reinvestigation revealed that in fact these two mutations strongly decrease the prolyl isomerase activity of Cpr3 in both the peptide and the protein-folding assay. The high folding activities found previously originated from a contamination of the recombinant Cpr3 proteins with the Escherichia coli protein SlyD, a prolyl isomerase that co-purifies with His-tagged proteins. SlyD is inactive in the peptide assay, but highly active in the protein-folding assay.  (+info)

Kinetic study of alpha-chymotrypsin catalysis with regard to the interaction between the specificity-determining site and the aromatic side chain of substrates. (2/2760)

In order to investigate how changes in the structures of side-chain aromatic groups of specific substrates influence binding and kinetic specificity in alpha chymotrypsin [EC 3.4.21.1]-catalyzed reactions, a number of nucleus-substituted derivatives of the specific ester substrates were prepared and steady-state kinetic studies were carried out at pH 6.5 and 7.8. Ac-Trp(NCps)-OMe was hydrolyzed more readily at low substrate concentration than Ac-Trp-OMe due to its smaller Km(app) value, suggesting that the bulky 2-nitro-4-carboxyphenylsulfenyl moiety interacts with outer residues rather than with those in the hydrophobic pocket and that this interaction increases the binding specificity. Inhibition experiments using the corresponding carboxylate and analogous inhibitors, however, showed that the carboxy group at the para position of the phenyl nucleus of the substituent sterically hinders association with the active site of alpha-chymotrypsin at pH 7.8 but not at pH 6.5. The kcat values of Ac-Trp(CHO)-0Me, Ac-Tyr(3-NO2)-OMe, and Ac-m-Tyr-OMe were much higher than those of the corresponding specific substrates, indicating that derivatives with a substitute as large as a formyl, nitro or hydroxyl group at the xi-position are stereochemically favorable to the catalytic process. Remarkable increases in Km(app) were also observed. The individual parameters for Ac-Dopa-OMe, however, were comparable to those for Ac-Tyr-OMe.  (+info)

A method for analyzing enzyme kinetics with substrate activation and inhibition and its application to the alpha-chymotrypsin-catalyzed hydrolysis of phenyl acetates. (3/2760)

A general kinetic method was developed to analyze enzyme-catalyzed systems complicated by the presence of activation or inhibition by substrate. The method was applied to the alpha-chymotrypsin [EC 3.4.21.1]-catalyzed hydrolysis of p-chlorophenyl and p-methoxyphenyl acetates. Deacylation rate constants which were not complicated by substrate activation were obtained. The analysis shows that the abnormal substituent dependence of kcat in the steady state hydrolysis is due not to substrate activation but to inappropriateness of the two-step mechanism or the existence of more than one acetyl-enzyme intermediate.  (+info)

The amino acid sequence of Neurospora NADP-specific glutamate dehydrogenase. Peptic and chymotryptic peptides and the complete sequence. (4/2760)

Peptic and chymotryptic peptides were isolated form the NADP-specific glutamate dehydrogenase of Neurospora crassa and substantially sequenced. Out of 452 residues in the polypeptide chain, 265 were recovered in the peptic and 427 in the chymotryptic peptides. Together with the tryptic peptides [Wootton, J. C., Taylor, J. G., Jackson, A. A., Chambers, G. K. & Fincham, J. R. S. (1975) Biochem. J. 149, 749-755], these establish the complete sequence of the chain, including the acid and amide assignments, except for seven places where overlaps are inadequate. These remaining alignments are deduced from information on the CNBr fragments obtained in another laboratory [Blumenthal, K. M., Moon, K. & Smith, E. L. (1975), J. Biol. Chem. 250, 3644-3654].

Neuroregulation by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) of mucus secretion in ferret trachea: activation of BK(Ca) channels and inhibition of neurotransmitter release. (5/2760)

1. The aims of this study were to determine: (1) whether vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) regulates cholinergic and 'sensory-efferent' (tachykininergic) 35SO4 labelled mucus output in ferret trachea in vitro, using a VIP antibody, (2) the class of potassium (K+) channel involved in VIP-regulation of cholinergic neural secretion using glibenclamide (an ATP-sensitive K+ (K(ATP)) channel inhibitor), iberiotoxin (a large conductance calcium activated K+ (BK(ca)) channel blocker), and apamin (a small conductance K(ca) (SK(ca)) channel blocker), and (3) the effect of VIP on cholinergic neurotransmission using [3H]-choline overflow as a marker for acetylcholine (ACh) release. 2. Exogenous VIP (1 and 10 microM) alone increased 35SO4 output by up to 53% above baseline, but suppressed (by up to 80% at 1 microM) cholinergic and tachykininergic neural secretion without altering secretion induced by ACh or substance P (1 microM each). Endogenous VIP accounted for the minor increase in non-adrenergic, non-cholinergic (NANC), non-tachykininergic neural secretion, which was compatible with the secretory response of exogenous VIP. 3. Iberiotoxin (3 microM), but not apamin (1 microM) or glibenclamide (0.1 microM), reversed the inhibition by VIP (10 nM) of cholinergic neural secretion. 4. Both endogenous VIP (by use of the VIP antibody; 1:500 dilution) and exogenous VIP (0.1 microM), the latter by 34%, inhibited ACh release from cholinergic nerve terminals and this suppression was completely reversed by iberiotoxin (0.1 microM). 5. We conclude that, in ferret trachea in vitro, endogenous VIP has dual activity whereby its small direct stimulatory action on mucus secretion is secondary to its marked regulation of cholinergic and tachykininergic neurogenic mucus secretion. Regulation is via inhibition of neurotransmitter release, consequent upon opening of BK(Ca) channels. In the context of neurogenic mucus secretion, we propose that VIP joins NO as a neurotransmitter of i-NANC nerves in ferret trachea.  (+info)

Unexpected crucial role of residue 225 in serine proteases. (6/2760)

Residue 225 in serine proteases of the chymotrypsin family is Pro or Tyr in more than 95% of nearly 300 available sequences. Proteases with Y225 (like some blood coagulation and complement factors) are almost exclusively found in vertebrates, whereas proteases with P225 (like degradative enzymes) are present from bacteria to human. Saturation mutagenesis of Y225 in thrombin shows that residue 225 affects ligand recognition up to 60,000-fold. With the exception of Tyr and Phe, all residues are associated with comparable or greatly reduced catalytic activity relative to Pro. The crystal structures of three mutants that differ widely in catalytic activity (Y225F, Y225P, and Y225I) show that although residue 225 makes no contact with substrate, it drastically influences the shape of the water channel around the primary specificity site. The activity profiles obtained for thrombin also suggest that the conversion of Pro to Tyr or Phe documented in the vertebrates occurred through Ser and was driven by a significant gain (up to 50-fold) in catalytic activity. In fact, Ser and Phe are documented in 4% of serine proteases, which together with Pro and Tyr account for almost the entire distribution of residues at position 225. The unexpected crucial role of residue 225 in serine proteases explains the evolutionary selection of residues at this position and shows that the structural determinants of protease activity and specificity are more complex than currently believed. These findings have broad implications in the rational design of enzymes with enhanced catalytic properties.  (+info)

Identification of protein-disulfide isomerase activity in fibronectin. (7/2760)

Assembly and degradation of fibronectin-containing extracellular matrices are dynamic processes that are up-regulated during wound healing, embryogenesis, and metastasis. Although several of the early steps leading to fibronectin deposition have been identified, the mechanisms leading to the accumulation of fibronectin in disulfide-stabilized multimers are largely unknown. Disulfide-stabilized fibronectin multimers are thought to arise through intra- or intermolecular disulfide exchange. Several proteins involved in disulfide exchange reactions contain the sequence Cys-X-X-Cys in their active sites, including thioredoxin and protein-disulfide isomerase. The twelfth type I module of fibronectin (I12) contains a Cys-X-X-Cys motif, suggesting that fibronectin may have the intrinsic ability to catalyze disulfide bond rearrangement. Using an established protein refolding assay, we demonstrate here that fibronectin has protein-disulfide isomerase activity and that this activity is localized to the carboxyl-terminal type I module I12. I12 was as active on an equal molar basis as intact fibronectin, indicating that most of the protein-disulfide isomerase activity of fibronectin is localized to I12. Moreover, the protein-disulfide isomerase activity of fibronectin appears to be partially cryptic since limited proteolysis of I10-I12 increased its isomerase activity and dramatically enhanced the rate of RNase refolding. This is the first demonstration that fibronectin contains protein-disulfide isomerase activity and suggests that cross-linking of fibronectin in the extracellular matrix may be catalyzed by a disulfide isomerase activity contained within the fibronectin molecule.  (+info)

Isolation and identification of three bactericidal domains in the bovine alpha-lactalbumin molecule. (8/2760)

Proteolytic digestion of alpha-lactalbumin by pepsin, trypsin and chymotrypsin yielded three polypeptide fragments with bactericidal properties. Two fragments were obtained from the tryptic digestion. One was a pentapeptide with the sequence EQLTK (residues 1-5) and the other, GYGGVSLPEWVCTTF ALCSEK (residues (17-31)S-S(109-114)), was composed of two polypeptide chains held together by a disulfide bridge. Fragmentation of alpha-lactalbumin by chymotrypsin yielded CKDDQNPH ISCDKF (residues (61-68)S-S(75-80)), also a polypeptide composed of two polypeptide chains held together by a disulfide bridge. The three polypeptides were synthesized and found to exert antimicrobial activities. The polypeptides were mostly active against Gram-positive bacteria. Gram-negative bacteria were only poorly susceptible to the bactericidal action of the polypeptides. GYGGVSLPEWVCTTF ALCSEK was most, EQLTK least bactericidal. Replacement of leucine (23) with isoleucine, having a similar chemical structure but higher hydrophobicity, in the sequence GYGGVSLPEWVCTTF ALCSEK significantly reduced the bactericidal capacity of the polypeptide. Digestion of alpha-lactalbumin by pepsin yielded several polypeptide fragments without antibacterial activity. alpha-Lactalbumin in contrast to its polypeptide fragments was not bactericidal against all the bacterial strains tested. Our results suggest a possible antimicrobial function of alpha-lactalbumin after its partial digestion by endopeptidases.  (+info)

N2 - A chymotrypsin-like enzyme was purified from rat plasma, involving ammonium sulfate fractionation and chromatographgy on CM-sephadex and red sepharose. The purified enzyme effectively hydrolysed the ester substrates for chymotrypsin (N-acetyl L-tyrosine ethyl ester and N-acetyl L-tryptophan ethyl ester). The Km values for the two substrates were 2.2×10-3M and 9.0×10-3M respectively. The hydrolytic activity of the enzyme was inhibited by phenylmethyl sulfonyl fluoride and tosylphenylalanine chloromethylketone, suggesting the presence of serine and histidine at the active centre. The enzyme exhibited anionic nature and possessed a high molecular weight (MW 71,000) as observed by gel exclusion chromatography on Sephadex G-200. The enzyme was stable upon exposure to pH 7.0-9.0, but was inactivated upon heat treatment at ...

Based on summation of Coulombic interactions, a model is developed for finite-length dipole potentials of mean force in a salt-free dielectric continuum. Point-dipole and finite-length dipole potentials of mean force are compared for protein-protein interactions using parameters for bovine alpha-chymotrypsin. The two approximations made in the commonly used analytical point-dipole potentials of mean force are not valid at distances near contact.

We report a functional protease assay in which liquid crystals (LCs) are used as signal reporters to transduce the test results into optical signals. In this assay, an oligopeptide substrate (CLSELDDRADALQAGASQFESSAAKLKRKYWWKNLK) is used as a probe. This oligopeptide can be cleaved by α-chymotrypsin at multiple locations and become smaller fragments after the cleavage. When the original oligopeptide is immobilized on a solid surface, its long flexible oligopeptide chain is able to influence the orientation of a thin layer of LC supported on the surface, as is evident as a bright spot on the surface. In contrast, when the shorter oligopeptide fragments are immobilized on the same surface, their shorter, less flexible chains cannot disrupt the orientation of LC, and a dark spot is observed. On the basis of the dark or bright signal from LC, α-chymotrypsin in buffer solution or complex media such as chicken broth can be detected by using the naked eye. However, when the incubation time is 3. h, ...

The primary specificity residue of a substrate or an inhibitor, called the P1 residue, is responsible for the proper recognition by the cognate enzyme. This residue enters the S1 pocket of the enzyme and establishes contacts (up to 50%) inside the proteinase substrate cavity, strongly affecting its specificity. To analyze the influence on bovine α-chymotrypsin substrate activity, aromatic non-proteinogenic amino acid residues in position P1 with the sequence Ac-Phe-Ala-Thr-XAnb 5,2-NH2 were introduced: L-pyridyl alanine (Pal), 4-nitrophenylalanine - Phe(p-NO2), 4-aminophenylalanine - Phe(p- NH2), 4-carboxyphenylalanine Phe(p-COOH), 4-guanidine phenylalanine - Phe(p-guanidine), 4-methyloxycarbonylphenylalanine - Phe(p-COOMe), 4-cyanophenylalanine - Phe(p-CN), Phe, Tyr.

Most recent works on chymotrypsins have been focused on marine animals and insects. However, no study was reported in chelicerate. Scorpion chymotrypsin-like protease (SCP) was purified to homogeneity from delipidated hepatopancreases. The protease NH2-terminal sequence exhibited more than 60% monoacids identity with those of insect putative peptidases. The protease displayed no sequence homology with classical proteases. From this point of view, the protease recalls the case of the scorpion lipase which displayed no sequence homology with known lipases. The scorpion amylase purified and characterized by our time, has an amino-acids sequence similar to those of mammalian amylases. The enzyme was characterized with respect its biochemical properties: it was active on a chymotrypsin substrate and had an apparent molecular mass of 25 kDa, like the classically known chymotrypsins. The dependence of the SCP activity and stability on pH and temperature was similar to that of mammalian chymotrypsin proteases.

The solution structure and the disulfide pairings of a 36-residue proteinase inhibitor isolated from the insect Locusta migratoria have been determined using NMR spectroscopy and simulated annealing calculations. The peptide, termed PMP-C, was previously shown to inhibit bovine alpha-chymotrypsin as well as human leukocyte elastase, and was also found to block high-voltage-activated Ca2+ currents in rat sensory neurones. PMP-C has a prolate ellipsoid shape and adopts a tertiary fold hitherto unobserved in the large group of small "canonical" proteinase inhibitors. The over-all fold consists mainly of three strands arranged in a right-handed twisted, antiparallel, beta-sheet that demarcates a cavity, together with a linear amino-terminal segment oriented almost perpendicular to the three strands of the beta-sheet. Inside the cavity a phenyl ring constitutes the centre of a hydrophobic core. The proteinase binding loop is located in the carboxy-terminal part of the molecule, between two cysteine ...

I have received data from SPARC, Sick Kids Hospital Toronto, for the limited digest experiment I previously wrote about. This experiment aims to work out where the flexible linker regions of the protein structure are, therefore predicting which regions of the protein sequence correspond to folded domains.All of the experimental data is uploaded onto Zenodo.. Very similar proteolytically stable regions of huntingtin were mapped. despite limited cleavage of the protein with a different enzyme. This evidence further supports the domain mapping described previously.. I am now eagerly awaiting the insect cell construct test expression data, to see if we can make some of these putative domains recombinantly ...

Protease-Inhibitors. here fulfill a crucial role in regulating the life cycle of proteins, activating pro-enzymes or eliminating problematic proteins. In addition, proteases are secreted to process food, e.g. in the intestinal tract of animals. Protease Inhibitors used in protein purification procedures Whenever proteins are analyzed in biological samples or purified from a natural source, protease activity is a potential threat. During sample preparation, cells are frequently lysed and in this way they set free high amounts of protease activities that may digest the proteins of interest. The days of work for cell culture and protein sample preparation can be destroyed within a few seconds.Labs generally apply two basic strategies to knock out such unwanted proteolytic activities: (a) cooling the sample or cell lysate, and (b) adding chemical inhibitors of proteases. The most common proteases are the serine proteases Chymotrypsin, Kallikrein, Plasmin, Proteinase K, Thrombin and Trypsin. Hence ...

The mustard trypsin inhibitor, MTI-2, is a potent inhibitor of trypsin with no activity towards chymotrypsin. MTI-2 is toxic for lepidopteran insects, but has low activity against aphids. In an attempt to improve the activity of the inhibitor towards aphids, a library of inhibitor variants was constructed and cloned into the pRlac3 phagemid vector. The library of 9.3 x 107 independent colonies was created by randomisation of a stretch of five consecutive codons in the reactive site. Repeated selection rounds against bovine trypsin and chymotrypsin allowed the identification of novel, MTI-2 derived, antitrypsin and antichymotrypsin inhibitors. Chy8, the selected variant with highest affinity for bovine chymotrypsin (Ki = 32 nm versus |1000 nm for the wild-type) represents the strongest known recombinant chymotrypsin inhibitor of the MTI-2 family. It is highly toxic to nymphs of the aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum, and moderately toxic to nymphs of Aphis gossypii and Myzus persicae. The LC50 of 73 microg ml-1

TY - JOUR. T1 - Age-dependent inhibition of proteasome chymotrypsin-like activity in the retina. AU - Kapphahn, Rebecca J.. AU - Bigelow, Erin J.. AU - Ferrington, Deborah A.. PY - 2007/4/1. Y1 - 2007/4/1. N2 - The proteasome plays a fundamental role in processes essential for cell viability. A loss in proteasome function has been associated with aging, as well as a number of age-related diseases. Defining the mechanism(s) behind this loss in function will add important information regarding the molecular basis for aging. In the current study, we performed an age-based comparison of proteasome function and composition of subunits and regulatory proteins in the neural retina and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in Fischer 344 rats. In the RPE, there was no age-dependent difference in activity, subunit composition, or content of proteasome regulators, PA28 and PA700. In contrast, the aged neural retina demonstrated a significant reduction in the chymotrypsin-like activity and decreased degradation ...

This work is a joint theoretical and experimental endeavor in which we identify and quantify the conformational changes that chymotrypsin undergoes when in contact with the surface of amorphous silica nanoparticles. For this purpose, we use circular dichroism spectroscopy, standard molecular dynamics, and advanced-sampling methods. Only the combination of these techniques allowed us to ...

Protein instability remains the main factor limiting the development of protein therapeutics. The fragile nature (structurally and chemically) of proteins makes them susceptible to detrimental events during processing, storage, and delivery. To overcome this, proteins are often formulated in the solid-state which combines superior stability properties with reduced operational costs. Nevertheless, solid protein pharmaceuticals can also suffer from instability problems due to moisture sorption. Chemical protein glycosylation has evolved into an important tool to overcome several instability issues associated with proteins. Herein, we employed chemical glycosylation to stabilize a solid-state protein formulation against moisture-induced deterioration in the lyophilized state. First, we investigated the consequences of moisture sorption on the stability and structural conformation of the model enzyme α-chymotrypsin (α-CT) under controlled humidity conditions. Results showed that α-CT aggregates and

α-Chymotrypsin was immobilized by radiation polymerization at low temperatures and the effect of the hydrophilicity of the polymer matrix on the enzyme activity and thermal stability was studied. The activity and thermal stability of immobilized chymotrypsin increased with the increasing hydrophilicity of the polymer matrix or monomer. The thermal stability was affected by the form and pore size of the polymer matrix; chymotrypsin immobilized on a soft-gel polymer matrix exhibited an enhanced thermal stability.. ...
Serine proteases play an important role in processes such as blood clotting, digestion and in some pathways of cell development [1]. Serine proteases can hydrolyze either peptide bonds or esters. Proteases digest proteins by hydrolyzing the peptide bonds which are responsible for keeping amino acids together [2, 3]. The cleavage specificity of elastase, trypsin, chymotrypsin and other serine proteases depends on the volume/size, form/shape, and polarity/charge/hydrophobicity of the specific part of a protein surface where a substrate will be docking - the specificity pocket [4, 5]. There are three amino acid residues responsible for the enzymatic activity that are present in all serine proteases, which are denominated as the catalytic triad: His 57, Asp 102 and Ser 195 (chymotrypsin numbering system is used throughout - see [6]). Interestingly, out of those three amino acids, only Asp 102 does not make part of the interface (the definition of which is based on decreased solvent accessible area ...
The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase S1 protein family, is found in azurophil granules of neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The encoded protease has a specificity similar to that of chymotrypsin C, and may participate in the killing and digestion of engulfed pathogens, and in connective tissue remodeling at sites of inflammation. In addition, the encoded protein is antimicrobial, with bacteriocidal activity against S. aureus and N. gonorrhoeae. Transcript variants utilizing alternative polyadenylation signals exist for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014] ...

We propose a new strategy for precise, rapid, quantitatively predictable and reversible on-off regulation of enzymatic reactions. Specifically, we report reversible photo and pH-switchable hydrolytic activity of a chymotrypsin mimic. The switching-off of mimic activity when exposed to UV irradiation is a consequence of deswelling of the hydrogel that results in a 25-fold decrease in the diffusivity of the substrate in the hydrogel. The hydrolytic activity of the enzyme mimic can also be switched on/off in response to pH. Unlike native chymotrypsin, which is irreversibly deactivated, the activity of the mimic is reversible and also more stable in hostile environments. A reaction-diffusion analysis of the problem predicts the course of switching quantitatively.. ...

symplocamide A: a potent cytotoxin and chymotrypsin inhibitor from the marine Cyanobacterium Symploca sp.; structure in first source
The cells of Hyperthermus are irregular spherical (around 1.5 µm in diameter) shape with edges between partially flattened surfaces. The ones that grow in higher temperature often contain vacuoles within their cytoplasm, sometimes immediately below the S layer. The archaeon utilizes peptide mixtures, obtained by various hydrolysis procedures (eg, Tryptone, Trypticase, Merck peptone from casein, gelatin, and a chymotryptic digest of casein) as carbon and energy sources. No growth has been observed with starch, maltose, sucrose, lactose, glucose, galactose, ribose, lactic acid, lactic acid ethylester, glyoxylate, pyruvate, oxalate, fumarate, maleate, malate, malonate, and formate. Hyperthermus is the first archaebacterium for which fermentation products have been identified. Its H2S formation results in increased growth capacity without a major change in the nature of the products, except that it allows utilization of peptide-bound nitrogen. Therefore, this could possibly act as an accessory ...

Recent animal studies have suggested that TA has a cancer-preventative activity (3 , 5, 6, 7) . Cell culture studies also indicate that TA can induce either growth arrest (8) or apoptosis (9 , 10) . However, the involved molecular target(s) have not been identified. In the current study, we demonstrated that TA was a potent inhibitor of the proteasomal chymotrypsin-like activity both in vitro and in vivo. Inhibition of the proteasome activity by TA in intact Jurkat T cells resulted in accumulation of p27 and Bax, associated with G1 arrest and apoptosis. This finding is consistent with previous reports that show inhibition of the chymotrypsin-like, but not trypsin-like, activity of the proteasome by a specific inhibitor was sufficient to induce either tumor cell growth arrest or apoptosis (15 , 16) .. It has been shown that the ester bond carbon of β-lactone is responsible for potently and specifically inhibiting the proteasome (29) . Our results suggest that ester bonds present in TA are also ...
The terrific thing about attempting to teach what youve learned is that its one of the most truly effective methods to consolidate information. Suddenly, nothing appears certain. Its simple to get overwhelmed by all you would like to do and know, and the way you might have done things better in the past.. It cant be random, because multiple unique mutations converge upon exactly the same phenotype.

We read with great interest the article by Rosendahl et al1 reporting the identification of CTRB1-CTRB2 (chymotrypsin B1 and chymotrypsin B2) as a new chronic pancreatitis (CP) risk locus by means of genome-wide association study, with the lead single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs8055167 having an OR of 1.35. Moreover, they found that a previously reported 16.6 kb inversion in the CTRB1-CTRB2 locus2 was in linkage disequilibrium with the CP-associated SNPs and optimally tagged by rs8048956. Furthermore, they provided in silico and in vivo evidence showing that the inversion variant changes the expression ratio of the CTRB1 and CTRB2 isoforms, the major risk allele being associated with increased CTRB1 and decreased CTRB2 mRNA expression as compared with the minor allele. Finally, they provided in vitro evidence that CTRB1 was less efficient in degrading anionic trypsinogen (PRSS2) than CTRB2 (note that rapid degradation of PRSS2 conferred by a PRSS2 missense variant protects against CP).3 ...
High sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.) and uv-visible spectrophotometry have been used to study the thermal unfolding of alpha-chymotrypsin in presence of calcium chloride at pH = 2.8, 3.4, 5.0, 7.0, and 8.2. Quantitative thermodynamic parameters accompanying the thermal transitions have been evaluated. In the absence of calcium ions, the thermal denaturation of a-chymotrypsin is a reversible process giving a ratio of the vant Hoff to calorimetric enthalpy of 0.92 at pH = 2.8. At pH values higher than 5.0, the thermal denaturations in the absence of calcium chloride were observed to be completely irreversible. In the presence of calcium chloride, alpha-chymotrypsin undergoes irreversible thermal denaturation and its thermal transitions are found to be scan-rate dependent fitting to the model N-2 --, I, yielding an average activation energy of (419 +/- 16) kJ (.) mol(-1) using different approaches at pH = 2.8. It is also observed that at pH 2.8 and 3.4, calcium reduces the ...

Several methods for isolating adrenocorticotrophin from small quantities of porcine and bovine pituitary tissue are compared. Initial extraction of the hormone by an acid-acetone technique was simpler and more efficient than one employing acetic acid extraction and ether precipitation. Subsequent purification procedures utilizing adsorption of the peptide on to oxycellulose realized the highest yields. CM-cellulose-column chromatography followed by Sephadex-gel filtration were suitable final steps for obtaining highly purified adrenocorticotrophin. The purity of the hormone was demonstrated by determining its amino acid composition, C-terminal analysis, polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis, chymotrypsin digestion and paper electrophoresis and by radioimmunoassay and bioassay. Adrenocorticotrophin was found to be rapidly destroyed in intact and especially in homogenized glands kept at room temperature. At 4° the rate of destruction was less rapid and at −20° losses were minimal.. ...

Proteolytic enzymes (or proteases) refer to the various enzymes that digest (break down into smaller units) protein. These enzymes include the pancreatic proteases chymotrypsin and trypsin, bromelain (pineapple enzyme), papain (papaya enzyme), fungal proteases, and Serratia peptidase (the silk worm enzyme).
Answer Bile is a digestive juice secreted by the liver. Although it does not contain any digestive enzymes, it plays an important role in the digestion of fats. Bile juice has bile salts such as bilirubin and biliverdin. These break down large fat globules into smaller globules so that the pancreatic enzymes can easily act on them. This process is known as emulsification of fats. Bile juice also makes the medium alkaline and activates lipase.. Question 8: Describe the digestive role of chymotrypsin.

Cathepsin G is an enzymatic protein belonging to the peptidase or protease families. In humans, it is coded by the CTSG gene. The protein encoded by this gene, a member of the peptidase S1 protein family, is found in azurophil granules of neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes. The encoded protease has a specificity similar to that of chymotrypsin C, and may participate in the killing and digestion of engulfed pathogens, and in connective tissue remodeling at sites of inflammation. Transcript variants utilizing alternative polyadenylation signals exist for this gene ...
About Antinutrients. Grains, legumes, nuts and seeds (GNSL) contain Antinutrients. What are antinutrients? - substances in natural food generated by the normal metabolism of species and by mechanisms such as inactivation of nutrients or reduction in the digestive process. Whether a substance is an antinutrient depends on the digestive system of its ingester. E.g. ruminants can digest trypsin inhibitors and phytates without adverse consequences, humans cannot.. Antinutrients are natures way of protecting seeds against insects, mold and fungus, and maintaining seed freshness until conditions are right for them to germinate and grow - GNSLs should be properly prepared to reduce the following anti-nutrients:. ✐ Phytate -"Malabsorption Agent". ✐ Enzyme inhibitors -in most beans, especially protease inhibitors such as trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitors, which inhibit GI tract proteolytic enzymes and thus affect protein metabolism; induces pancreatic hyperactivity ✐ Lectins - in legumes and ...
This gene encodes a member of the peptidase S1 or chymotrypsin family of serine proteases. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate light and heavy chains that associate via a disulfide bond to form the heterodimeric enzyme. This enzyme is highly expressed in prostate epithelia and is one of several proteolytic enzymes found in seminal fluid. This protease exhibits trypsin-like substrate specificity, cleaving protein substrates at the carboxyl terminus of lysine or arginine residues. The encoded protease partially mediates proteolytic activation of the epithelial sodium channel, a regulator of sodium balance, and may also play a role in epithelial barrier formation.

CL == Christine Lukacs ,lukacs at a.chem.upenn.edu, writes: CL, Could anyone out there in crystallography land could direct me to CL, a subset of the PDB containing only unique structures? I want to CL, do a search of the PDB, but I dont need to look at, for example, CL, chymotrypsin with 10 different small inhibitors. This would cut CL, down on my CPU time immensely... There are many different possibilities. I can point you to three that were developed in our group at EMBL: 1) A sequence-unique subset of the PDB, called PDBselect. You can choose for youself how sequence-unique you want it to be (down to the 25% level) 2) A structure-unique subset of the PDB, part of the FSSP effort. This is even smaller than the sequence-unique subset, because some unrelated sequences have the same fold. Again different levels of similarity can be chosen. 3) The WHAT IF program comes with a relational database that contains a sequence unique subset of the PDB, with further restrictions: all of them are high ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Characterization of the cyanogen bromide fragments of the β chain of human haptoglobin. AU - Kurosky, Alexander. AU - Hay, Regine E.. AU - Kim, Han Hwa. AU - Touchstone, Billy. AU - Rasco, Marilyn A.. AU - Bowman, Barbara H.. PY - 1976. Y1 - 1976. N2 - Characterization of the cyanogen bromide (CNBr) fragments of the β chain of human haptoglobin revealed five major fragments resulting from cleavage of four methionyl residues. The fragments were isolated by gel filtration in guanidine-HCl on Sepharose 6B and Bio-Gel P10 and P60. Compositional analyses of the five cyanogen bromide fragments accounted for 248-253 amino acid residues in agreement with the number of residues determined for the intact β chain. Most of the carbohydrate was attached to CNBr II. Automated amino-terminal sequence analysis and carboxyl-terminal hydrolysis with carboxypeptidase of the haptoglobin β chain and cyanogen bromide fragments identified 139 residues, or about 55% of the β-chain molecule. The ...
RS)-Diethyl-2-benzyl-succinate was resolved using alpha-chymotrypsin. The two enantiomers were then elaborated to yield (S)-(+) and (R)-(-)-3-benzyl-N-[(methyl-sulfonyl)oxy]succinimide and the inhibitory activity of the two enantiomers toward human leukocyte elastase was subsequently determined. The k2/KI values for the R and S isomers were found to be 330 and 1500 M-1 s-1, respectively ...
Summary Evidence is presented here which indicates that the adenovirus DNA-binding protein (DBP) is phosphorylated at a tyrosine residue early in infection. This was suggested by the discovery that a proportion of the label in 32P-labelled DBP was resistant to alkali, and was substantiated by acid hydrolysis of DBP immunoprecipitates and by immunoblotting with a monoclonal antibody against phosphotyrosine. Treatment of [35S] methionine-labelled DBPs with chymotrypsin produced fragments of apparent M r 45K and 39K whereas digestion of 32P-labelled DBP resulted in fragments of 45K and 26K. Consideration of the distribution of 32P label and its alkali stability in these fragments suggested that chymotrypsin cleaved populations of DBP at different sites depending on their phosphorylation states. The conservation, in all of the seven adenovirus serotypes sequenced, of a tyrosine residue (at amino acid 195 in adenovirus type 2) together with its surrounding residues, suggests that phosphorylation
Chymotrypsin-like elastase family member 3B also known as elastase-3B, protease E, or fecal elastase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the CELA3B gene. Clinical literature that describes human elastase 1 activity in the pancreas or fecal material is actually referring to chymotrypsin-like elastase family, member 3B (this protein). Elastases form a subfamily of serine proteases that hydrolyze many proteins in addition to elastin. Humans have six elastase genes which encode the structurally similar proteins elastase 1, 2, 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B. Unlike other elastases, elastase 3B has little elastolytic activity. Like most of the human elastases, elastase 3B is secreted from the pancreas as a zymogen and, like other serine proteases such as trypsin, chymotrypsin and kallikrein, it has a digestive function in the intestine. Elastase 3B preferentially cleaves proteins after alanine residues. Elastase 3B may also function in the intestinal transport and metabolism of cholesterol. Both elastase 3A ...

We have created a novel enzyme reactor using electric field-mediated orientation and immobilization of proteolytic enzymes (trypsin/chymotrypsin) on biocompatible PVDF membranes in a continuous flow-through chamber. Using less than 5min, this reactor in various enzyme combinations can produce enhanced rapid digestion for standardized prototypic proteins, hydrophilic proteins and hydrophobic transmembrane proteins when compared to in-solution techniques. With improved digestive efficiency, our reactor improved the overall functional analysis of lipid raft proteomes by identifying more closely functionally linked proteins and elucidated a richer set of biological processes and pathways linked to the proteins than traditional in-solution methods.

  • This cleft contains the active site, which contains a catalytic diad that has been likened to the catalytic triad of chymotrypsin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like many proteases, chymotrypsin also hydrolyses amide bonds in vitro, a virtue that enabled the use of substrate analogs such as N-acetyl-L-phenylalanine p-nitrophenyl amide for enzyme assays. (wikipedia.org)
  • N-Acetyl-L-phenylalanine p-nitrophenyl ester yields a yellow product, p-Nitrophenolate, on cleavage by chymotrypsin. (wikibooks.org)

  • He demonstrated that this zymogen when activated was similar but not identical to chymotrypsin alpha. (marquette.edu)
  • It is composed of two β-barrels and a flexible C-terminal tail and displays structural homology to the chymotrypsin superfamily of proteases (PA clan, C4 family by MEROPS classification). (wikipedia.org)
