Preferential release of 11-cis-retinol from retinal pigment epithelial cells in the presence of cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein. (1/278)

In photoreceptor cells of the retina, photoisomerization of 11-cis-retinal to all-trans-retinal triggers phototransduction. Regeneration of 11-cis-retinal proceeds via a complex set of reactions in photoreceptors and in adjacent retinal pigment epithelial cells where all-trans-retinol is isomerized to 11-cis-retinol. Our results show that isomerization in vitro only occurs in the presence of apo-cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein. This retinoid-binding protein may drive the reaction by mass action, overcoming the thermodynamically unfavorable isomerization. Furthermore, this 11-cis-retinol/11-cis-retinal-specific binding protein potently stimulates hydrolysis of endogenous 11-cis-retinyl esters but has no effect on hydrolysis of all-trans-retinyl esters. Apo-cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein probably exerts its effect by trapping the 11-cis-retinol product. When retinoid-depleted retinal pigment epithelial microsomes were preincubated with different amounts of all-trans-retinol to form all-trans-retinyl esters and then [3H]all-trans-retinol was added, as predicted, the specific radioactivity of [3H]all-trans-retinyl esters increased during subsequent reaction. However, the specific radioactivity of newly formed 11-cis-retinol stayed constant during the course of the reaction, and it was largely unaffected by expansion of the all-trans-retinyl ester pool during the preincubation. The absence of dilution establishes that most of the ester pool does not participate in isomerization, which in turn suggests that a retinoid intermediate other than all-trans-retinyl ester is on the isomerization reaction pathway.  (+info)

Identification of a novel nutrient-deprivation-induced Sinorhizobium meliloti gene (hmgA) involved in the degradation of tyrosine. (2/278)

Sinorhizobium meliloti strain N4 carries a Tn5luxAB insertion in a gene which is induced by nitrogen and carbon deprivation as well as in the presence of tyrosine. The Tn5luxAB-tagged locus was found to share significant similarity with the human hmgA gene and the corresponding Aspergillus nidulans gene, encoding the enzyme homogentisate dioxygenase, which is involved in the degradation of tyrosine. Extended DNA sequence analysis of the tagged locus revealed the presence of several ORFs, including one encoding a polypeptide sharing a high degree of similarity with human and fungal maleylacetoacetate isomerases. Strain N4 was found to be unable to use tyrosine as carbon source, to lack homogentisate dioxygenase activity, to produce a melanin-like pigment and to be affected in stationary-phase survival. This is believed to be the first report of a hmgA-homologous gene in bacteria.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of the cis-trans-unsaturated fatty acid isomerase of Pseudomonas oleovorans GPo12. (3/278)

Pseudomonas oleovorans contains an isomerase which catalyzes the cis-trans conversion of the abundant unsaturated membrane fatty acids 9-cis-hexadecenoic acid (palmitoleic acid) and 11-cis-octadecenoic acid (vaccenic acid). We purified the isomerase from the periplasmic fraction of Pseudomonas oleovorans. The molecular mass of the enzyme was estimated to be 80 kDa under denaturing conditions and 70 kDa under native conditions, suggesting a monomeric structure of the active enzyme. N-terminal sequencing showed that the isomerase derives from a precursor with a signal sequence which is cleaved from the primary translation product in accord with the periplasmic localization of the enzyme. The purified isomerase acted only on free unsaturated fatty acids and not on esterified fatty acids. In contrast to the in vivo cis-trans conversion of lipids, this in vitro isomerization of free fatty acids did not require the addition of organic solvents. Pure phospholipids, even in the presence of organic solvents, could not serve as substrate for the isomerase. However, when crude membranes from Pseudomonas or Escherichia coli cells were used as phospholipid sources, a cis-trans isomerization was detectable which occurred only in the presence of organic solvents. These results indicate that isolated membranes from Pseudomonas or E. coli cells must contain factors which, activated by the addition of organic solvents, enable and control the cis-trans conversion of unsaturated acyl chains of membrane phospholipids by the periplasmic isomerase.  (+info)

cis/trans isomerase of unsaturated fatty acids of Pseudomonas putida P8: evidence for a heme protein of the cytochrome c type. (4/278)

From a pool of 600 temperature-sensitive transposon mutants of Pseudomonas putida P8, 1 strain was isolated that carries a mini-Tn5 insertion within the cytochrome c operon. As a result, genes involved in the attachment of heme to cytochrome c-type proteins are turned off. Accordingly, cytochrome c could not be detected spectrophotometrically. The mutant also exhibited a remarkable reduction of cis-trans isomerization capability for unsaturated fatty acids. Consistent with the genetic and physiological data is the detection of a cytochrome c-type heme-binding motif close to the N terminus of the predicted polypeptide of the cis/trans isomerase (cti) gene (CVACH; conserved amino acids in italics). The functional significance of this motif was proven by site-directed mutagenesis. A possible mechanism of heme-catalyzed cis-trans isomerization of unsaturated fatty acids is discussed.  (+info)

Identification of RPE65 in transformed kidney cells. (5/278)

The protein RPE65 has an important role in retinoid processing and/or retinoid transport in the eye. Retinoids are involved in cell differentiation, embryogenesis and carcinogenesis. Since the kidney is known as an important site for retinoid metabolism, the expression of RPE65 in normal kidney and transformed kidney cells has been examined. The RPE65 mRNA was detected in transformed kidney cell lines including the human embryonic kidney cell line HEK293 and the African green monkey kidney cell lines COS-1 and COS-7 by reverse transcription PCR. In contrast, it was not detected in human primary kidney cells or monkey kidney tissues under the same PCR conditions. The RPE65 protein was also identified in COS-7 and HEK293 cells by Western blot analysis using a monoclonal antibody to RPE65, but not in the primary kidney cells or kidney tissues. The RPE65 cDNA containing the full-length encoding region was amplified from HEK293 and COS-7 cells. DNA sequencing showed that the RPE65 cDNA from HEK293 cells is identical to the RPE65 cDNA from the human retinal pigment epithelium. The RPE65 from COS-7 cells shares 98 and 99% sequence identity with human RPE65 at the nucleotide and amino acid levels, respectively. Moreover, the RPE65 mRNA was detected in three out of four renal tumor cultures analyzed including congenital mesoblastic nephroma and clear cell sarcoma of the kidney. These results demonstrated that transformed kidney cells express this retinoid processing protein, suggesting that these transformed cells may have an alternative retinoid metabolism not present in normal kidney cells.  (+info)

Involvement of the cis/trans isomerase Cti in solvent resistance of Pseudomonas putida DOT-T1E. (6/278)

Pseudomonas putida DOT-T1E is a solvent-resistant strain that is able to grow in the presence of high concentrations of toluene. We have cloned and sequenced the cti gene of this strain, which encodes the cis/trans isomerase, termed Cti, that catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of esterified fatty acids in phospholipids, mainly cis-oleic acid (C(16:1,9)) and cis-vaccenic acid (C(18:1,11)), in response to solvents. To determine the importance of this cis/trans isomerase for solvent resistance a Cti-null mutant was generated and characterized. This mutant showed a longer lag phase when grown with toluene in the vapor phase; however, after the lag phase the growth rate of the mutant strain was similar to that of the wild type. The mutant also showed a significantly lower survival rate when shocked with 0.08% (vol/vol) toluene. In contrast to the wild-type strain, which grew in liquid culture medium at temperatures up to 38.5 degrees C, the Cti-null mutant strain grew significantly slower at temperatures above 37 degrees C. An in-frame fusion of the Cti protein with the periplasmic alkaline phosphatase suggests that this constitutively expressed enzyme is located in the periplasm. Primer extension studies confirmed the constitutive expression of Cti. Southern blot analysis of total DNA from various pseudomonads showed that the cti gene is present in all the tested P. putida strains, including non-solvent-resistant ones, and in some other Pseudomonas species.  (+info)

Molecular analysis of maleate cis-trans isomerase from thermophilic bacteria. (7/278)

Several strains of thermophilic bacteria containing maleate cis-trans isomerase were isolated from soil samples and identified as Bacillus stearothermophilus, Bacillus circulans, Bacillus brevis, and Deleya halophila. The maleate cis-trans isomerase was purified and characterized from one of the isolated strains, B. stearothermophilus MI-102. The purified enzyme of strain MI-102 showed higher thermal stability than the enzyme of a mesophile, Alcaligenes faecalis IFO13111. The seven maleate cis-trans isomerase genes (maiA) of thermophile were cloned and sequenced. B. stearothemophilus MI-102 MaiA has 67% amino acid identity with A. faecalis MaiA. All eight amino acid sequences of maiA gene products had significant conserved regions containing cysteine residues, which were previously suggested to be involved in an active site of the enzyme. To probe the catalytic mechanism, three cysteine residues in the conserved regions of A. faecalis MaiA were replaced with serine by site-directed mutagenesis. The results suggest that Cys80 and Cys198 play important roles in the enzyme activity.  (+info)

Rapid restoration of visual pigment and function with oral retinoid in a mouse model of childhood blindness. (8/278)

Mutations in the retinal pigment epithelium gene encoding RPE65 are a cause of the incurable early-onset recessive human retinal degenerations known as Leber congenital amaurosis. Rpe65-deficient mice, a model of Leber congenital amaurosis, have no rod photopigment and severely impaired rod physiology. We analyzed retinoid flow in this model and then intervened by using oral 9-cis-retinal, attempting to bypass the biochemical block caused by the genetic abnormality. Within 48 h, there was formation of rod photopigment and dramatic improvement in rod physiology, thus demonstrating that mechanism-based pharmacological intervention has the potential to restore vision in otherwise incurable genetic retinal degenerations.  (+info)

Results from the worlds first gene therapy trial for inherited blindness reveal that the eyesight of people with Leber Congenital Amaurosis (LCA) can be improved at least in the short term.. Researchers at Moorfields and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology conducted a trial that involved injecting healthy genes directly into the retinas of young patients with this progressive eye disease.. LCA is a genetic, early-onset eye condition that causes substantial sight impairment from childhood, leading to loss of night vision and progressive loss of day vision. LCA affects approximately one in 80,000 people worldwide, and it is one of the most common causes of blindness in children. There is currently no treatment for the condition.. There are numerous types of LCA, each caused by defective genes needed for normal sight. LCA Type 2, one of the more common types, is caused by a defect in the RPE65 gene (Retinal Pigment Epithelium-specific Protein 65 kDa).. This clinical trial, which involved 12 ...
Since the publication of our previous paper, Visual cycle proteins: Structure, function, and roles in human retinal disease (Tsin, et.al, JBC 293:13016, 2018) there has been significant progress on multiple topics discussed in this paper. In the present communication, we further explore research advances on two visual cycle proteins: DES1 and IRBP. In addition, we emphasize the progress of clinical translation of other visual cycle protein research, including the breakthrough of FDA-approved gene therapy for Lebers congenital amaurosis, and additional gene therapies at different stages of clinical trials for various retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, diabetic retinopathy, and Stargardts disease.
RPE65, an abundant protein in retina pigment epithelium, plays a critical role in the retinoid visual cycle as an isomerohydrolase, which is essential for the conversion from all-trans retinoid to 11-cis retinoid. In this dissertation, the Rpe65+/- mouse was used as a model for studies of both the retinoid visual cycle and the role of this protein in the eye. This study proved that a retinal isomer, 9-cis retinal, accumulates in eyes through a RPE65 and light-independent pathway and forms a functional pigment isorhodopsin in Rpe65-/- mice. The isolated rods from dark-reared Rpe65-/- mice were shown to have a greater circulating current and sensitivity than those from the cyclic light-reared Rpe65-/- mice. In Rpe65-/- mice, the spectral sensitivity of the isolated rods indicated that the rod responses were indeed generated by isorhodopsin and their sensitivities were found to correlate with the pigment levels. Retinal morphology indicated that the retinal degeneration is slower in dark reared ...
Purpose : Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of diabetes mellitus. Diabetic patients experience functional deficits in dark adaptation, contrast sensitivity and color perception before the microvascular pathologies become apparent. The mechanism that mediates these visual abnormalities remains unclear. The goal of this study was to evaluate early changes in neural retinal function and in retinoid metabolism in the eye in diabetic rats. Methods : The rats were assigned to streptozotocin-induced diabetic and non-diabetic control groups. Blood glucose levels and body weights were monitored regularly. Retinal function was examined by electroretinography (ERG). Expression levels of rod opsin and visual cycle proteins such as RPE65, LRAT, STRA6 and IRBP were analyzed by Western blotting. The enzymatic activities of RPE65 and LRAT were assayed using HPLC. The expression level and localization of STRA6 in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) were confirmed by immunohistochemistry. The RBP4 ...
The retinoid visual cycle is a sequence of metabolic and transport reactions of retinoids in the retina and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). Many proteins are involved in this cycle and play critical roles in the generation of II-cis retinal, the chromophore that binds opsin to form the visual pigments. Mutations of these proteins cause eye diseases that can eventually lead to blindness. RPE65 and LRA T are essential proteins involved in the visual dark cycle to regenerate visual pigments, while RDHIO is thought to produce all-trans retinal, the substrate for the retinal G protein-coupled receptor (RGR) in the photic cycle to regenerate visual pigments. This research is focused on studying the visual cycle proteins (RPE65, LRAT and RDHIO) and tested the hypothesis that the HEK293 cells can be used as an in vitro model to study visual vitamin A metabolism. The protein RPE65 was purified from native bovine RPE and the molecular mass of this protein was determined. Retinoic acid (RA) was found ...
Purpose: : The RPE65 gene knockout (Rpe65-/-) mouse lacks isomerohydrolase activity in the visual cycle and lacks of 11-cis retinal, the chromorphore for rod and cone visual pigments. It has been suggested that the Rpe65-/- mouse is a model for vitamin A deficiency. The purpose of this study was to compare the phenotypes of the Rpe65-/- mouse with that in mice with vitamin A deficiency. Methods: : The mice (129sv) were fed with a vitamin A-deprived diet for 6 months. The age-matched control mice and Rpe65-/- mice were maintained under normal vitamin A-containing diet. The isomerohydrolase and LRAT activities were measured using an in vitro enzymatic activity assay. Endogenous retinoid profiles were analyzed by HPLC in mouse eyecup homogenates. Photoreceptor-specific gene expression was determined using real-time RT-PCR. Cone degeneration was determined by cone-specific staining and counting cones in the flat-mounted retina. The structure of photoreceptor outer segment was compared using SEM. ...

We are entering an age of gene therapy, with multiple trials of gene therapies for IRDs ongoing, said Dr. Mark E. Pennesi. At the same time, we are seeing a shift away from phenotypic diagnosis, such as rod-cone or cone-rod dystrophy, to defining these diseases by the gene that is involved. RPE65 mutation-associated retinopathy is a rare autosomal recessive IRD, which usually presents very early (often before the age of 5 years), with vision loss, nystagmus, and profound nyctalopia. Patients often show pigmentary degeneration and are myopic, although many will have preserved central vision at presentation.1,2 The natural history of the disease is for early, profound changes in VA, which worsen with age, with progressive loss of functional retina over time.3 What is really important to understand about this disease is that its a progressive degeneration. By age 20, most patients are going to go legally blind and eventually they will go completely blind, said Dr. Pennesi. In 2017, voretigene ...

BACKGROUND: Lebers congenital amaurosis (LCA) accounts for 5% of inherited retinal disease and is usually inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. Genetic and clinical heterogeneity exist. Mutations have been described in the RPE65, CRB1, RPGRIP1, AIPL1, GUCY2D, and CRX genes and other pedigrees show linkage to the LCA3 and LCA5 loci. The latter is a new locus which maps to 6q11-q16. The ocular findings and the evolution of the macula staphyloma are described in five members of a Pakistani family with consanguinity and a mutation in the LCA5 gene. METHODS: 13 family members including five affected individuals consented to DNA analysis and ocular examination including fundal photography. RESULTS: Ocular abnormalities are described. The most striking feature was the progression of macula abnormalities in three brothers resulting in a colobomatous appearance in the eldest compared to only mild atrophy in the youngest. The phenotypic pattern of this mutation in this Pakistani family contrasts ...

Nphp5−/− mice are blind at eye opening (P12), a phenotype resembling Leber congenital amaurosis. Photoreceptors deficient in NPHP5 are unable to form connecting cilia and outer segments, the site of phototransduction. Mutant rods degenerate rapidly although a single row of nuclei, presumably those of cones, survives much longer (Figure 1E, right panel) and [30]. We showed that in Nphp5−/−; Nrl−/− (cone-only) mice, cone nuclei and inner segments are able to survive for more than 6 months (Figure 1N). The thickness of the cone double-knockout ONL persists, similarly as observed in the Cep290/Nphp6rd16/rd16/Nrl double-knockout retina [36]. Nphp5−/−; Nrl−/− cones continue to express cone pigments without triggering cone degeneration (Figure 1G-M). With the application of AAV gene replacement therapy with a vector expressing canine NPHP5 (Figure 2), transition zones and cilia in Nphp5−/−; Nrl−/− cones were reestablished (Figures 4-6), and cone outer segment proteins ...
Background Choroideremia is an X-linked recessive disease that leads to blindness due to mutations in the CHM gene, which encodes the Rab escort protein 1 (REP1). We assessed the eff ects of retinal gene therapy with an adenoassociated viral (AAV) vector encoding REP1 (AAV.REP1) in patients with this disease. Methods In a multicentre clinical trial, six male patients (aged 35-63 years) with choroideremia were administered AAV.REP1 (0.6-1.0 × 10 10 genome particles, subfoveal injection). Visual function tests included best corrected visual acuity, microperimetry, and retinal sensitivity tests for comparison of baseline values with 6 months after surgery. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT01461213. Findings Despite undergoing retinal detachment, which normally reduces vision, two patients with advanced choroideremia who had low baseline best corrected visual acuity gained 21 letters and 11 letters (more than two and four lines of vision). Four other patients with near normal
Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a disease where part of the eye (the retina) is severely diseased. Usually it is detected in affected people within the first few months of life, as there is significantly poor vision at birth. Cells in the retina are lost over time in people with LCA which leads to total blindness. There are no pharmacological treatments available. This study will focus on the form of LCA caused by changes (mutations) in DNA that makes a certain protein (called the 65 kDa retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)-specific protein, or RPE65). Clinical diagnosis is made by function tests of the eye. This can be confirmed by a special method of testing (molecular testing) to verify that the RPE65 is not correct.. This study uses a gene therapy vector made from an adeno-associated virus (AAV) called AAV2-hRPE65v2.

Importance: The early decline and recovery of retinal structure and function following iatrogenic macular detachment for retinal gene therapy is not well characterized in those with relatively preserved central visual function. Here, the recovery of retinal structure and function over the first month following iatrogenic retinal detachment for the delivery of adeno-associated viral vector encoding Rab Escort Protein 1 is described as a part of gene therapy for choroideremia. Objective: To study changes in both retinal structure and function during the first month following iatrogenic macular detachment surgery. Design, Setting, and Participants: This prospective interocularly controlled study was conducted between February 1 and December 31, 2015. Treatment consisted of a subretinal injection of 0.1 mL of a gene therapy solution containing 1 × 1011 viral particles performed unilaterally. The participants were 5 males, aged 23 to 71 years, with a clinical and genetic diagnosis of choroideremia. Main
Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) accounts for approximately 15 % of congenital blindness. This largely recessively inherited disorder manifests with signs of very poor visual function and roving eye movements or nystagmus. Eye-poking or eye-rubbing, the oculodigital sign, may be present and may eventually lead to sunken orbits, cataract and keratoconus. The majority of patients have normal fundi at presentation, but disc pallor, vessel attenuation and pigmentary changes may follow. The ERG is typically severely reduced or undetectable from early infancy (Fig. 9.2B).. Was this article helpful?. ...
A hereditary disorder that leads to abnormality of retinal receptors and severe visual impairment at an early age, often from birth. LCA is an autosomal recessive disease. There is no cure, but new advancements in gene therapy may prove promising in the not-too-distant future.
LCA is a heterogeneous condition that is responsible for severe vision loss at birth. In the past 10 years great progress has been made in identifying the genes that are responsible for this condition. Mutations in the eight genes we studied in the South Indian population account for 64% of LCA in the United States [18]. In the current study, we explored the role of previously discovered LCA mutations in a cohort of patients from southern India by testing for the presence of 104 previously reported mutations in eight LCA genes. While this particular set of mutations has been associated with roughly 30% of LCA cases in prior studies of patients from northern America, only one proband in the cohort from southern India (ILCA-65-1) was found to carry one of these 104 mutations previously associated with LCA. Our SNPlex assay incidentally detected a plausible disease-causing mutation in the RPE65 gene that was not one of the 103 alleles included in the original assay design. A homozygous Tyr143Asp ...

Rare LP from the father of Brazilian Soul Music Tim Maia. In 1975, following the sect Universo em Desencanto, Maia released two editions of Tim Maia Racional (Tim Maia Racional Vol. 1 & 2) on his own label, Seroma, that expressed his infatuation with the religious/philosophical sect Universo em Desencanto. Although these albums were not well-received at their time of release, they are now regarded as classics and saw re-release in 2005 (CD). Little is known about why a character like Tim Maia, who always fomented his reputation as a rebel, started singing verses like I no longer depend on madness/Now I know what to do/ Now I know a new truth/ Im living with the pleasure/Of being alive. During his messianic period, which lasted for about 6 months, Maia gave up drug use and had a son , but he also realized that he wouldnt be chatting with beings from other planets anytime soon which was his goal as he joined the sect. Maia, after quitting the sect, destroyed the original master tapes and the
With the help of gene therapy, two people who once were blind now can see. The individuals - their identities remain confidential - are participants in an early-stage clinical trial of gene therapy for Lebers Congenital Amaurosis, a rare and untreatable form of congenital blindness.

Lebers congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a form of blindness that affects about 1 in 80,000 people. This inherited disease, in which the retina progressively degenerates, results in severe loss of vision, and frequently patients can only see well enough to count fingers or see bright lights. Unfortunately, many of these patients also experience eye pain from…

I find it awkward publicly talking about guns. Especially the first time the topic comes up, who I am tends to be a sticking point. I have a genetic disorder called Lebers Congenital Amaurosis. According to Wikipedia: Lebers congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a rare inherited eye disease that appears at birth or in the first few months of life, and affects around 1 in 80,000 of the population…LCA is typically characterized by nystagmus, sluggish or absent pupillary responses, and severe vision loss or blindness. . . .. I was born with decent vision that has deteriorated over time. As a child I played video games, rode a bicycle, and played soccer. As a high school sophomore I lost enough capacity to make it unsafe for me to ride a bike on my own. Now in my late 30s I can barely tell if a light is on in a room or if the sun is out. I use a white cane, employ a text to speech program to operate computers, and depend on my iPhones voice over function to use my smart phone.. As a result, people ...
PURPOSE: Treatment of inherited retinal degenerations using adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors involves delivery by subretinal injection. In the latter stages, alteration of normal anatomy may cause difficulty in visualizing the retinotomy, retinal detachment extension, and vector diffusion. Vital dyes may be useful surgical adjuncts, but their safety and impact on AAV transduction are largely unknown. METHODS: The effects of Sodium Fluorescein (SF), Membrane Blue (MB), and Membrane Blue Dual (DB) at a range of dilutions were assessed on human embryonic kidney cells in vitro using an AAV2-green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter at different multiplicities of infection. Flow cytometry analysis was performed to assess both cell viability and transduction efficiency. The effect on quantitative (q)PCR titer was determined. Balanced salt solution (BSS) or dilute DB (1:5 in BSS) were delivered subretinally into left/right eyes of C57BL/6J mice (n = 12). Retinal structure and function were analyzed by

Mutations in the gene CEP290 cause an array of debilitating and phenotypically distinct human diseases, ranging in severity from the devastating blinding disease Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) to Senior Løken Syndrome, Joubert syndrome, and the embryonically lethal Meckel-Grüber syndrome. The pathology observed in these diseases is thought to be due to CEP290s essential role in the development and maintenance of the primary cilium, but despite its critical role in biology and disease we know only little about CEP290s function. Here we identify four novel functional domains of the protein, showing that CEP290 directly binds to cellular membranes through an N-terminal domain that includes a highly conserved amphipathic helix motif, and to microtubules through a domain located within its myosin-tail homology domain. Furthermore, CEP290 activity was found to be regulated by two novel autoinhibitory domains within its N- and C-termini, both of which were also found to play critical roles in
