Certain enzymes convert them to active KININS which are involved in inflammation, blood clotting, complement reactions, etc. Kininogens belong to the cystatin superfamily. They are cysteine proteinase inhibitors. HIGH-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT KININOGEN; (HMWK); is split by plasma kallikrein to produce BRADYKININ. LOW-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT KININOGEN; (LMWK); is split by tissue kallikrein to produce KALLIDIN.Rabbits: The species Oryctolagus cuniculus, in the family Leporidae, order LAGOMORPHA. Rabbits are born in burrows, furless, and with eyes and ears closed. In contrast with HARES, rabbits have 22 chromosome pairs.Molecular Structure: The location of the atoms, groups or ions relative to one another in a molecule, as well as the number, type and location of covalent bonds.Cathepsin D: An intracellular proteinase found in a variety of tissue. It has specificity similar to but narrower than that of pepsin A. The enzyme is involved in catabolism of cartilage and connective tissue. EC 3.4.23.5. (Formerly EC 3.4.4.23).HeLa Cells: The first continuously cultured human malignant CELL LINE, derived from the cervical carcinoma of Henrietta Lacks.

Most fimbriae (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL) of gram-negative bacteria function as adhesins, but in many cases it is a minor subunit protein at the tip of the fimbriae that is the actual adhesin. In gram-positive bacteria, a protein or polysaccharide surface layer serves as the specific adhesin. What is sometimes called polymeric adhesin (BIOFILMS) is distinct from protein adhesin.Carbon-Nitrogen Lyases: Enzymes that catalyze the cleavage of a carbon-nitrogen bond by means other than hydrolysis or oxidation. Subclasses are the AMMONIA-LYASES, the AMIDINE-LYASES, the amine-lyases, and other carbon-nitrogen lyases.

Cloning and characterization of a cysteine proteinase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (1/163)

We have isolated a gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae that encodes a protein homologous to the mammalian cysteine proteinase bleomycin hydrolase. Sequence comparison between the yeast and rabbit proteins indicates an amino acid identity of 41.5% over 277 residues and a similarity of 78.3% when conservative substitutions are included. The apparent mass of the yeast protein by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is 47 kDa, although sequence analysis indicates two potential initiator methionines that suggest calculated masses of either 51 or 55 kDa. The protein is nonessential in yeast as haploid mutants disrupted at several positions along the open reading frame remain viable. Furthermore, these mutants do not exhibit any readily observable growth defects under varying conditions of temperature, nutrients, osmotic strength, or exogenous bleomycin. However, the purified protein does exhibit marked hydrolytic activity toward the substrate arginine 4-methyl-7-coumarylamide (Km = 12.8 microM, Vmax = 2.56 mumol mg-1 h-1), and yeast cells engineered to express this protein at higher levels maintain increased resistance to bleomycin compared to wild-type cells. Because this protein represents the first example of a cysteine proteinase identified in yeast, we have named it Ycp1 (yeast cysteine proteinase).  (+info)

The identification, characterization and optimization of small molecule probes of cysteine proteases: experiences of the Penn Center for Molecular Discovery with cathepsin B and cathepsin L. (8/163)

During the pilot phase of the NIH Molecular Library Screening Network, the Penn Center for Molecular Discovery focused on a series of projects aimed at high throughput screening and the development of probes of a variety of protease targets. This review provides our medicinal chemistry experience with two such targets--cathepsin B and cathepsin L. We describe our approach for hit validation, characterization and triage that led to a critical understanding of the nature of hits from the cathepsin B project. In addition, we detail our experience at hit identification and optimization that led to the development of a novel thiocarbazate probe of cathepsin L.  (+info)

Cysteine proteases, also known as thiol proteases, are enzymes that degrade proteins. These proteases share a common catalytic mechanism that involves a nucleophilic cysteine thiol in a catalytic triad or dyad. Cysteine proteases are commonly encountered in fruits including the papaya, pineapple, fig and kiwifruit. The proportion of protease tends to be higher when the fruit is unripe. In fact, dozens of latices of different plant families are known to contain cysteine proteases. Cysteine proteases are used as an ingredient in meat tenderizers. The MEROPS protease classification system counts 14 superfamilies plus several currently unassigned families (as of 2013) each containing many families. Each superfamily uses the catalytic triad or dyad in a different protein fold and so represent convergent evolution of the catalytic mechanism. For superfamilies, P = superfamily containing a mixture of nucleophile class families, C = purely cysteine proteases. superfamily. Within each superfamily, ...

Background. High activity of cysteine proteases such as legumain and the cathepsins have been shown to facilitate growth and invasion of a variety of tumor types. In breast cancer, several recent studies have indicated that loss of the cysteine protease inhibitor cystatin E/M leads to increased growth and metastasis. Although cystatin E/M is normally expressed in the skin, its role in cysteine protease regulation and progression of malignant melanoma has not been studied.. Methods. A panel of various non-melanoma and melanoma cell lines was used. Cystatin E/M and C were analyzed in cell media by immunoblotting and ELISA. Legumain, cathepsin B and L were analyzed in cell lysates by immunoblotting and their enzymatic activities were analyzed by peptide substrates. Two melanoma cell lines lacking detectable secretion of cystatin E/M were transfected with a cystatin E/M expression plasmid (pCST6), and migration and invasiveness were studied by a Matrigel invasion assay.. Results. Cystatin E/M was ...
The majority of individuals infected with E. histolytica are asymptomatic carriers, but invasion does occur in a small percentage of those afflicted with the parasite (33). In order for invasion to occur, the parasite must overcome the protective mucous layer lining the colon. Histopathology studies of the human colon and rectum have revealed that the mucous layer lining these regions is separated into two striated layers. The outer layer contains most of the bacterial and fecal contents, and the inner layer contains little to no bacteria (21). These observations imply that mucin plays a role in establishing a clear barrier between luminal contents, including pathogens, and the colonic epithelium.. Previous studies have indicated that E. histolytica cellular lysates and SPs were ineffective at degrading human colonic mucin, and it was suggested that the parasite may cause a mechanical depletion of the mucous blanket by inducing goblet cell hypersecretion prior to invasion (31). In this study, we ...
Apoptose er programmert celledød for å fjerne uønskede celler og er en felles egenskap for alle flercellede organismer. Caspase-3 er involvert i intracellulære signalkaskader ved apoptose. En ubalanse i regulering av apoptose kan føre til kreftutvikling. Apoptose spiller en viktig rolle i flere andre sykdommer som immunologisk, iskemiske, og nevrodegenerative sykdommer. For å undersøke betydningen av proteasen legumain og proteaseinhibitoren cystatin E/M for caspase-3 aktivitet, ble det brukt HEK293 (normale kontroll celler), M38L (overutrykker legumain) og M4C (overutrykker cystatin E/M) celler. Cellene ble stimulert med dødsstimulerende stoffer som staurosporin og Leu-Leu-OMe. Staurosporin er kjent for å være en kinasehemmer. Leu-Leu-OMe øker lysosomal membranpermeabilitet. Proteaser som er involvert i apoptose vil dermed frigjøres fra lysosomer til cytosol. Legumain som befinner seg i lysosomene, kan frigjøres til cytosol og dermed påvirke aktiviteten av caspase-3 eller andre ...

To improve the fermentation production of transglutaminase (TGase) from Streptomyces mobaraensis for applications in the food industry, the atmospheric and room-temperature plasma (ARTP) mutagenesis was applied to breed S. mobaraensis mutants with increased TGase production. After eight rounds of iterative ARTP mutagenesis, four genetically stable mutants, Sm5-V1, Sm6-V13, Sm2-V10, and Sm7-V12, were identified, which showed increased TGase production by 27, 24, 24, and 19%, respectively. The best mutant Sm5-V1 exhibited a maximum TGase activity of 5.85 U/mL during flask fermentation. Compared to the wild-type strain, the transcription levels of the zymogen TGase genes in the mutants increased significantly as indicated by quantitative real-time PCR, while the gene nucleotide sequences of the mutants did not change at all. It was shown that the overexpression of TGase zymogen gene in the mutants contributes to the increase in TGase production. ARTP is a potentially efficient tool for microbial mutation
Almost all protease families have been associated with plant development, particularly senescence, which is the final developmental stage of every organ before cell death. Proteolysis remobilizes and recycles nitrogen from senescent organs that is required, for example, seed development. Senescence-associated expression of proteases has recently been characterized using large-scale gene expression analysis seeking to identify and characterize senescence-related genes. Increasing activities of proteolytic enzymes, particularly cysteine proteases, are observed during the senescence of legume nodules, in which a symbiotic relationship between the host plant and bacteria (Rhizobia) facilitate the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen. It is generally considered that cysteine proteases are compartmentalized to prevent uncontrolled proteolysis in nitrogen-fixing nodules. In addition, the activities of cysteine proteases are regulated by endogenous cysteine protease inhibitors called cystatins. These small proteins
As highlighted by the similarity of their fold and the superimposition of their active site, we have shown that NsPCS belongs to the papain superfamily of cysteine proteases. It is therefore expected that the peptide hydrolase activity of NsPCS, i.e., the deglycination of GSH, resembles the general and well known mechanism of papain-like cysteine proteases. By analogy with such a mechanism, Cys-70, His-183, and Asp-201 (equivalent to Cys-56, His-162, and Asp-180 in AtPCS1) correspond to the catalytic triad in NsPCS. Moreover, it is also highly probable that Cys-70 and His-183 form a thiolate-imidazolium ion pair, stabilized by Asp-201, and that the nucleophilic attack of Cys-70 on the Cys-Gly peptide bond is favored by the oxyanion hole, made up of Cys-70 and Gln-64. In a second step, the water molecule W153, whose nucleophilicity is enhanced by the proximity of His-183 and Asp-201, is then ideally placed to attack the thioester bond and liberate the γ-glutamylcysteine. We could trap the ...

Soybean is one of the most cultivated legume plants in developing countries. Nodule senescence is a major limitation in producing high yields of soybean as it coincides with the pod filling stage. Delaying nodule senescence could be a way of increasing the yield of soybean therefore determination of the role of cysteine protease in soybean is of vital importance. In this study, soybean plants were grown under controlled temperature and light conditions. Leaves and root crown nodules were collected at 4, 6, 10, 12 and 16 weeks of age. In a comparative 1-dimensional SDS-PAGE analysis of soybean nodule proteomes as the plant matured, it showed differences in proteins expressed as shown by different banding patterns with less variation between the younger soybean nodule extracts (4, 6 and 10 weeks old) as compared to the older ones (12 and 16 weeks old). As determined by azocasein assay and protease zymography, the protease activity of the nodule extracts generally decreased with an increase in the ...
Caspases (cysteine-aspartic proteases, cysteine aspartases or cysteine-dependent aspartate-directed proteases) are a family of protease enzymes playing essential roles in programmed cell death (including apoptosis, pyroptosis and necroptosis) and inflammation. They are named caspases due to their specific cysteine protease activity - a cysteine in its active site nucleophilically attacks and cleaves a target protein only after an aspartic acid residue. As of 2009, there are 11 or 12 confirmed caspases in humans[note 1] and 10 in mice, carrying out a variety of cellular functions.. The role of these enzymes in programmed cell death was first identified in 1993, with their functions in apoptosis well characterised. This is a form of programmed cell death, occurring widely during development, and throughout life to maintain cell homeostasis. Activation of Caspases ensures that the cellular components are degraded in a controlled manner, carrying out cell death with minimal effect on surrounding ...
Here, we describe an approach to directly visualize the activity of proteases that are incorporated into the phagosome at different stages of maturation. Only small numbers of phagocytes are required and there is no need to isolate individual endosomal compartments before analysis. This method is sensitive enough to allow an examination of primary cultures of professional APC, including DCs. Furthermore, the use of covalent active site-directed probes in conjunction with electrophoresis ensures specificity. Methods that employ fluorogenic substrates to detect protease activity suffer from the drawback that more than one enzyme can usually cleave a given peptide substrate. Analysis of the delivery of active hydrolases to the phagosome helped clarify both the distribution of cysteine protease activities among the different endocytic organelles and the dynamics of phagosomal maturation in primary cultures of professional APCs.. We validated our method of in vivo labeling of phagosomal proteolytic ...

Bacterial SH3 (SH3b) domains are commonly fused with papain-like Nlp/P60 cell wall hydrolase domains. To understand how the modular architecture of SH3b and NlpC/P60 affects the activity of the catalytic domain, three putative NlpC/P60 cell wall hydrolases were biochemically and structurally characterized. In addition, these enzymes all have γ-d-Glu-A 2pm (A 2pm is diaminopimelic acid) cysteine amidase (ordl-endopeptidase) activities but with different substrate specificities. One enzyme is a cell wall lysin that cleaves peptidoglycan (PG), while the other two are cell wall recycling enzymes that only cleave stem peptides with an N-terminall-Ala. Their crystal structures revealed a highly conserved structure consisting of two SH3b domains and a C-terminal NlpC/P60 catalytic domain, despite very low sequence identity. Interestingly, loops from the first SH3b domain dock into the ends of the active site groove of the catalytic domain, remodel the substrate binding site, and modulate substrate ...
Papain-like cysteine proteases are important for the survival of the flagellated protozoa Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas Disease. the lysosomal cysteine protease designated as cruzipain or cruzain, is the archetype of a multigene family of related isoforms. We investigated the substrate specificity of the cruzipain 2 isoform using internally quenched fluorogenic substrates. We found that cruzipain 2 and cruzain differ substantially regarding the specificity in the S-2, S-1() and S-2() pockets. Our study indicates that cruzipain 2 has a more restricted specificity than cruzain, suggesting that these isoforms might act on distinct natural substrates ...

Two plant cysteine proteases have been shown to have immunosuppressive and immunostimulant effects, respectively in mammalian systems. These molecules therefore have therapeutic potential in a variety of diseases, but their mechanism of action is presently not characterised. We will characterise the molecular mechanism by which these proteases interact with their substrate molecules and then apply the information learned to discerning their substrates on a vital component of the immune system, the T-cell. The information will therefore significantly advance the development of these molecules as therapeutic agents by uncovering their mechanism of action ...

The root-knot nematode Meloidogyne chitwoodisecretes effector proteins into the cells of host plants to manipulate plant-derived processes in order to achieve successful parasitism. Mc1194 is a M. chitwoodieffector that is highly expressed in pre-parasitic second-stage juvenile nematodes. Yeast two-hybrid assays revealed Mc1194 specifically interacts with a papain-like cysteine protease (PLCP), RD21A in Arabidopsis thaliana. Mc1194 interacts with both the protease and granulin domains of RD21A. PLCPs are targeted by effectors secreted by bacterial, fungal and oomycete pathogens and the hypersusceptibility of rd21-1mutants to M. chitwoodiindicates RD21A plays a role in plant-parasitic nematode infection.
Streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin B (SPE B), a conserved extracellular cysteine protease expressed by the human pathogenic bacterium Streptococcus pyogenes, was purified and shown to cleave inactive human interleukin 1 beta precursor (pIL-1 beta) to produce biologically active IL-1 beta. SPE B cleaves pIL-1 beta one residue amino-terminal to the site where a recently characterized endogenous human cysteine protease acts. IL-1 beta resulting from cleavage of pIL-1 beta by SPE B induced nitric oxide synthase activity in vascular smooth muscle cells and killed of the human melanoma A375 line. Two additional naturally occurring SPE B variants cleaved pIL-1 beta in a similar fashion. By demonstrating that SPE B catalyzes the formation of biologically active IL-1 beta from inactive pIL-1 beta, our data add a further dimension to an emerging theme in microbial pathogenesis that bacterial and viral virulence factors act directly on host cytokine pathways. The data also contribute to an enlarging ...

Crude pineapple proteases extract (aka stem bromelain; EC 3.4.22.4) is an important proteolytic mixture that contains enzymes belonging to the cysteine proteases of the papain family. Numerous studies have been reported aiming at the fractionation and characterization of the many molecular species present in the extract, but more efforts are still required to obtain sufficient quantities of the various purified protease forms for detailed physicochemical, enzymatic and structural characterization. In this work, we describe an efficient strategy towards the purification of at least eight enzymatic forms. Thus, following rapid fractionation on a SP-Sepharose FF column, two sub-populations with proteolytic activity were obtained: the unbound ...

The aim of this study was to verify simultaneously the distribution and presence of cathepsins B (CT-B) and K (CT-K) in partially demineralized dentin; and further to evaluate the activity of CTs and MMPs in the same tissue. The distribution of CT-B and CT-K in sound human dentin was assessed by immunohistochemistry. A double-immunolabeling technique was used to identify, ...
Plant infestation with parasitic weeds like Cuscuta reflexa induces morphological as well as biochemical changes in the host and the parasite. These modifications could be caused by a change in protein or gene activity. Using a comparative macroarray approach Cuscuta genes specifically upregulated at the host attachment site were identified. One of the infestation specific Cuscuta genes encodes a cysteine protease. The protein and its intrinsic inhibitory peptide were heterologously expressed, purified and biochemically characterized. The haustoria specific enzyme was named cuscutain in accordance with similar proteins from other plants, e.g. papaya. The role of cuscutain and its inhibitor during the host parasite interaction was studied by external application of an inhibitor suspension, which induced a significant reduction of successful infection events. The study provides new information about molecular events during the parasitic plant - host interaction. Inhibition of cuscutain cysteine proteinase

Small Ubiquitin-like Modifiers (SUMO) are 10 kDa proteins that are covalently attached to hundreds of intracellular proteins to regulate their function. In mammals, three members of the SUMO family are known to be conjugated (SUMO-1,-2,-3). Desumoylating enzymes (isopeptidases) play an essential role by ensuring reversibility of this posttranslational modification. At present, only a small number of these enzymes, members of the Ulp/SENP family, are known. They share a conserved catalytic cysteine protease domain, C48, wile remaining quite different in other regions. Mammals express only 6 distinct SENP proteases. This number appears extremely small, if one considers the plethora of SUMO targets that are individually regulated by reversible modification. For comparison, more than 80 different Ubiquitin proteases are currently known. This let us suspect that as yet undiscovered SUMO-specific isopeptidases exist. The goal of this work was to identify and perform initial characterization of a novel ...
P. falciparum falcipain-2 has received a great amount of attention as a target for therapeutic interventions against malaria, due to its relevant functional role [29]. This work identifies and characterizes bovipain-2, the B. bovis ortholog of falcipain-2. The biological significance of this protein is underscored by the observation that B. bovis growth can be inhibited using cysteine-proteinase inhibitors [24].. Based on their sequences, falcipain-2 and bovipain-2 are classifiable as cysteine peptidases belonging to Clan CA, subfamily C1A. This peptidase subfamily is characterized by the presence of four catalytic Q, C, H, and A residues present in three separate, well conserved regions of the primary sequence that corresponds to the mature protease, which are known as the eukaryotic thiol (cysteine) proteases cysteine, histidine, and asparagine active site regions (Figure 2). In the final tertiary conformation of the protein, the catalytic amino acids are brought together and constitute the ...

BACKGROUND: Cystatin C (cC) is a cysteine protease inhibitor that may influence immune response. Our aim was to test the effect of a high concentration of cC, characteristic for uremic patients, on neutrophil (PMN) apoptosis and respiratory burst, as well as the cC secretion from PMNs stimulated with proinflammatory cytokines. MATERIAL/METHODS: PMNs from 35 healthy volunteers aged 27-61 years were cultured in presence of cC, IL-1beta or TNF-alpha. The percentage of apoptotic cells based on DNA depletion, Fas, FasL and caspase -3 expression were assessed ...

Calpains encompass a family of calcium-dependent, nonlysosomal proteases characterized by a cysteine-protease domain that includes a conserved catalytic sequence Cys-His-Arg combined with a calmodulin-like Ca2+-binding site (Sorimachi and Suzuki 2001). The configuration of the cysteine-protease domain determines the formation of an active catalytic pocket, which only occurs when calcium is present. Calpains are involved in a large variety of calcium-regulated processes, such as signal transduction, cell proliferation, and PCD (Goll et al. 2003).. The calpain family comprises a heterogeneous group of cysteine proteases with a large expression pattern. The proteases belonging to this family have been subdivided into three groups depending on their primary structure and the presence or absence of regulatory subunits. These three groups are defined as: typical (also called ubiquitous or conventional), atypical, and other EF-calpains (Goll et al. 2003; Saez et al. 2006). The most important and most ...

AU - Nader, H. B.. AU - Nascimento, F. D.. AU - Carrilho, M. R.. PY - 2014/3/1. Y1 - 2014/3/1. N2 - Degradation of dentin matrix components within caries dentin has been correlated with the activity of host-derived proteases, such as matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) and cysteine cathepsins (CTs). Since this relationship has not been fully established, we hypothesized that the abundance of MMPs and CTs in caries-affected dentin must be higher than in intact dentin. To test this premise, we obtained 5 slices (200 μm) from 5 intact teeth and from 5 caries-affected teeth (1 slice/tooth) and individually incubated them with primary antibodies for CT-B, CT-K, MMP-2, or MMP-9. Negative controls were incubated with pre-immune serum. Specimens were washed and re-incubated with the respective fluorescent ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Cysteine protease secreted by Paragonimus westermani attenuates effector functions of human eosinophils stimulated with immunoglobulin G. AU - Myeong Heon Shin, Heon Shin. AU - Kita, H.. AU - Hae Young Park, Young Park. AU - Ju Young Seoh, Young Seoh. PY - 2001/3/14. Y1 - 2001/3/14. N2 - An immunoglobulin G (IgG)-coated surface, such as that found on helminth parasites, is one of the most effective physiologic stimuli for eosinophil activation. The cysteine proteases secreted by tissue-invasive helminth larvae play an important role in evasion of the immune response by degrading the host immunoglobulins. In this study, we investigated whether cysteine proteases in the excretory-secretory product (ESP) produced by Paragonimus westermani newly existed metacercariae (PwNEM), which cause pulmonary or extrapulmonary paragonimiasis in human beings, could modify effector functions of human eosinophils stimulated with IgG. We coated 96-well plates with human IgG in the absence or ...

[more ▼]. The latex of Ficus carica constitutes an important source of many proteolytic components known under the general term of ficin (EC 3.4.22.3) which belongs to the cysteine proteases of the papain family. So far, no data on the purification and characterization of individual forms of these proteases are available. An effective strategy was used to fractionate and purify to homogeneity five ficin forms, designated A, B, C, D1 and D2 according to their sequence of elution from a cation-exchange chromatographic support. Following rapid fractionation on a SP-Sepharose Fast Flow column, the different ficin forms were chemically modified by a specific and reversible monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (mPEG) reagent. In comparison with their ...
