The amino acid sequence of Neurospora NADP-specific glutamate dehydrogenase. Peptic and chymotryptic peptides and the complete sequence. (1/1155)

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].

The role of the flap residue, threonine 77, in the activation and catalytic activity of pepsin A. (2/1155)

Flexible loops, often referred to as flaps, have been shown to play a role in catalytic mechanisms of different enzymes. Flaps at the active site regions have been observed in the crystal structures of aspartic proteinases and their residues implicated in the catalytic processes. This research investigated the role of the flap residue, threonine 77, in the activation of pepsinogen and the catalytic mechanism of pepsin. Three mutants, T77S, T77V and T77G, were constructed. Differences in amino acid polarity and hydrogen bonding potential were shown to have an influence on the activation and catalytic processes. T77S activated at the same rate and had similar catalytic parameters as the wild-type pepsin. The activation rates of T77V and T77G were slower and their catalytic efficiencies lower than the wild-type. The results demonstrated that the threonine 77 polar side chain played a role in a proteolysis. The contribution of the side chain to zymogen activation was associated with the proteolytic cleavage of the prosegment. It was postulated that the hydroxyl group at position 77 provided an essential hydrogen bond that contributed to proper substrate alignment and, indirectly, to a catalytically favorable geometry of the transition state.  (+info)

Isolation and identification of three bactericidal domains in the bovine alpha-lactalbumin molecule. (3/1155)

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)

Recombinant human type II collagens with low and high levels of hydroxylysine and its glycosylated forms show marked differences in fibrillogenesis in vitro. (4/1155)

Type II collagen is the main structural component of hyaline cartilages where it forms networks of thin fibrils that differ in morphology from the much thicker fibrils of type I collagen. We studied here in vitro the formation of fibrils of pepsin-treated recombinant human type II collagen produced in insect cells. Two kinds of type II collagen preparation were used: low hydroxylysine collagen having 2.0 hydroxylysine residues/1,000 amino acids, including 1.3 glycosylated hydroxylysines; and high hydroxylysine collagen having 19 hydroxylysines/1,000 amino acids, including 8.9 glycosylated hydroxylysines. A marked difference in fibril formation was found between these two kinds of collagen preparation, in that the maximal turbidity of the former was reached within 5 min under the standard assay conditions, whereas the absorbance of the latter increased until about 600 min. The critical concentration with the latter was about 10-fold, and the absorbance/microgram collagen incorporated into the fibrils was about one-sixth. The morphology of the fibrils was also different, in that the high hydroxylysine collagen formed thin fibrils with essentially no interfibril interaction or aggregation, whereas the low hydroxylysine collagen formed thick fibrils on a background of thin ones. The data thus indicate that regulation of the extents of lysine hydroxylation and hydroxylysine glycosylation may play a major role in the regulation of collagen fibril formation and the morphology of the fibrils.  (+info)

Monkey pepsinogens and pepsins. III. Carbohydrate moiety of Japanese monkey pepsinogens and the amino acid sequence around the site of its attachment to protein. (5/1155)

Purified Japanese monkey pepsinogens I and II contain carbohydrate as a part of the enzyme molecule. By gel filtration on Sephadex G-100, chromatography on DE-32 cellulose, and polyacrylamide disc gel electrophoresis, the carbohydrate moiety could not be separated from the enzyme protein, and the content did not decrease on repeated chromatography. Glycopeptides were obtained by successive digestion of pepsinogens with thermolysin and aminopeptidases and isolated by chromatography on Sephadex G-25 and G-50. Identification and determination of carbohydrate components was performed by paper and gas-liquid chromatographies. The presence of 4 glucosamines, 6 galactoses, 6--8 mannoses, and 8--11 fucoses per molecule of the glycopeptide of both pepsinogens was observed, of which the high content of fucose is especially unique. The molecular weight of the carbohydrate chains should be around 4,000--5,000. The amino acid sequence of a major glycopeptide was deduced to be Ile-Gly-Ile-Gly-Thr-Pro-Gln-Ala-Asn, in which the asparagine residue is the site of attachment of the carbohydrate chain.  (+info)

Larynx vs. esophagus as reflexogenic sites for acid-induced bronchoconstriction in dogs. (6/1155)

Bronchoconstriction in asthmatic patients is frequently associated with gastroesophageal reflux. However, it is still unclear whether bronchoconstriction originates from the esophagus or from aspiration of the refluxate into the larynx and larger airway. We compared the effect of repeated esophageal and laryngeal instillations of HCl-pepsin (pH 1.0) on tracheal smooth muscle activity in eight anesthetized and artificially ventilated dogs. Saline was used as control. We used pressure in the cuff of an endotracheal tube (Pcuff) as a direct index of smooth muscle activity at the level of the larger airways controlled by vagal efferents. The Pcuff values of the first 60 s after instillations were averaged, and the difference from the baseline values was evaluated. Changes in Pcuff were significantly greater with laryngeal than with esophageal instillations (P = 0.0166). HCl-pepsin instillation into the larynx evoked greater responses than did saline (P = 0.00543), whereas no differences were detected with esophageal instillations. Repeated laryngeal exposure enhanced the responsiveness significantly (P < 0. 001). Our data indicate that the larynx is more important than the esophagus as a reflexogenic site for the elicitation of reflex bronchoconstriction in response to acidic solutions.  (+info)

Vagal esophageal receptors in anesthetized dogs: mechanical and chemical responsiveness. (7/1155)

This study was performed to evaluate the characteristics of esophageal receptors in anesthetized and artificially ventilated dogs. The electrical activity of the esophageal afferents was recorded from the peripheral cut end of the cervical vagus nerve. A cuffed catheter was inserted into the esophagus at the level of the third tracheal ring and was used to establish the esophageal location of the endings. Most of the receptors were localized in the intrathoracic portion of the esophagus. The majority of the receptors studied (36 of 43) showed a slow adaptation to a maintained stretch of the esophageal wall. Vagal cooling blocked receptor activity at temperatures ranging from 3.5 to 25 degrees C. Twenty-eight of 43 receptors, including 4 rapidly adapting endings (RAR), were challenged with saline, HCl + pepsin (HCl-P; pH 1) and distilled water (8 ml, 37 degrees C). HCl-P solutions specifically stimulated only three receptors; saline or water did not. Five slowly adapting receptors and two RARs were also challenged with topically applied capsaicin; only one RAR was stimulated. To ascertain a possible effect of smooth muscle contraction, 17 receptors were tested with intravenous injections of ACh and/or asphyxia; only 4 were stimulated. These characteristics do not support an important reflexogenic role of the esophagus in response to chemical stimuli.  (+info)

Contribution of a prosegment lysine residue to the function and structure of porcine pepsinogen A and its active form pepsin A. (8/1155)

A conserved lysine residue, Lys36p, on the prosegment of pepsinogen was replaced with a positively charged arginine (K36pR), a negatively charged glutamic acid (K36pE), and a neutral side chain methionine (K36pM). K36pM and K36pE mutants were extremely unstable and degraded rapidly, especially K36pE, which was inactivated during purification. This instability was confirmed by microcalorimetry where the denaturing temperatures for K36pM and K36pE were 6 degrees C and 10 degrees C lower than the wild-type, respectively. As a function of pH, K36pM and K36pR were activated over a broader range of pH as compared with wild-type. The mutant pepsinogens were activated faster than wild-type with K36pM being activated approximately 10 times faster. The activated pepsins from the various mutant pepsinogens showed lower kinetic efficiency than wild-type enzyme. Catalytic rate constants were reduced by half. The results suggested Lys36p is important for the correct folding of the active-centre residues. The molecular modeling calculation suggested that the position of Asp215 was substantially altered. In conclusion, the above results would suggest that Lys36p was important not only for stability of the prosegment and pepsinogen, but also for the correct alignment of the active-centre residues.  (+info)

Pepsinogen definition is - a granular zymogen of the gastric glands that is readily converted into pepsin in a slightly acid medium. The fragments can be purified by gel filtration, ion exchange, or affinity chromatography. Pepsin cleaves the 44 amino acids from pepsinogen to create more pepsin. [3][19]:675 Cleavage is disfavoured by positively charged amino acids histidine, lysine and arginine at the P1 position. See Article History. [36] PI-3 occupies the active site of pepsin using its N-terminal residues and thereby blocks substrate binding. In the intestine the gastric acids are neutralized (pH 7), and pepsin is no longer effective. (a) Pepsin is the active form of pepsinogen, a zymogen produced by chief cells in the stomach. Updates?

Crystalline 60 per cent active acetyl pepsin has 7 acetyl groups per mol of pepsin, 3 of which are readily hydrolyzed in acid at pH 0.0 or in weak alkali at pH 10.0.. The tyrosine-tryptophane content of this acetylated pepsin, measured colorimetrically, is less than pepsin by three tyrosine equivalents.. Hydrolysis at pH 0.0 or pH 10.0 of the 3 acetyl groups results in a concomitant increase in the number of tyrosine equivalents. In the pH 0.0 hydrolysis experiment there is also a simultaneous increase in specific activity.. The phenol group of glycyl tyrosine is acetylated by ketene under the conditions used in the acetylation of pepsin and the effect of pH on the rate of acetylation is similar in the two cases.. It is concluded that the acetyl groups in the 60 per cent active acetyl pepsin, which are responsible for the decrease in specific enzymatic activity, are 3 in number and are attached to 3 tyrosine phenol groups of the pepsin molecule.. ...
A number of peptides were found to increase the activity of pig pepsin towards small synthetic substrates. The activators increase transpeptidation of both the acyl-transfer and the amino-transfer types by as much as 45-fold. The effect on hydrolysis varies from inhibition to modest activation, but is always less than the effect on transpeptidation. The kinetics of substrate cleavage are the converse of non-competitive inhibition and show an increase in kcat. and no effect on Km values. Lineweaver-Burk plots of results obtained in the presence of the activators indicate a substrate activation at high substrate concentration. This appears to be a co-operative effect, since it is not observed in the absence of the activators. The activation is greatest at pH 4.7, less at pH 3.4, and at pH 2.0 is observable only with some of the activator peptides. The results show directly the effect of secondary binding on the catalytic efficiency of pepsin. The most effective activators are those that are most ...

Background: Although pepsins crystal structure has been analyzed extensively, enzymatic components and sequential characteristics that make pepsin so functional and resilient in the acidity of the stomach, remain to be determined. Upon comprehending this phenomenon, researchers can begin to utilize and exploit such properties from other enzymes in an attempt to engineer enzymes that are gastric-active, with potential application in gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate pepsin protease activities under ionic conditions representative of the stomach and representative of the duodenum. Two proteins were selected as protease substrates: albumin (test protein) and gliadin, which is an abundant dietary protein contained in cereals. The latter was chosen since it is a protein that is implicated in celiac disease. Celiac disease is a gastrointestinal (GI) disorder that renders patients intolerant to gluten and its molecular components, gliadins and gluten ...

The problem of the mechanism of pepsin action is considered in relation to recent data on the kinetics and specificity of the enzyme, as well as the finding, reported here, that pepsin exhibits a deuterium isotope effect in the cleavage of a peptide bond.. The kinetic parameters for the hydrolysis of the Phe(NO2)-Phe bond of Gly-Gly-Gly-Phe(NO2)-Phe-OMe by pepsin have been determined in H2O and in D2O. The finding of a significant deuterium isotope effect (kH2O/kD2O = ca. 2) supports the hypothesis that the catalytic mechanism of pepsin involves the participation, in the rate-limiting step, of a proton donor (probably an enzymic carboxyl group) in addition to an enzymic carboxylate group acting as a nucleophile. ...

Random Tests Because no variables seem to be effecting the breakdown of the fibers it was recommended to see if SDS, sodium dodecyl sulfate, had an effect on the fibers. In addition pepsin was added to see if by digesting the proteins the AuNPs would go back into solution.1 g of SDS was added to each ratio of AuNPs to see if their was an observable effect. A bulk amount of pepsin was added to a single tube of 50:1 AuNPs. We only made one tube of this because in theory the pepsin should chew up the protein on the AuNPs and make the protein loose its function. We just thought if anything should be able to break apart these fibers if the stability is due to the protein it would be pepsin. Obrsevations We did not observe any changes in the fiber solutions after adding different materials to them, therefore we let them sit for a week. The result that 2,2 Biprydimine had on the fibers was interesting. It made the fibers fall out of solution in a solution were there were only nanoparticles but no ...

Eating mostly Alkaline-Forming Foods, to avoid Osteoporosis (and Cancer), as opposed to eating Acid-Forming Foods is one topic (which we will discuss)… but having a nice healthy, very Acid pH stomach at meal time is something completely different. In fact the best way to have a healthful, slightly Alkaline Body pH is to eat mostly raw, unprocessed Alkaline-Forming Foods & have a VERY acid pH stomach. (pH 1 or 2, like battery-acid)…which might even require taking Stomach-Acid in a capsule (HCL with Pepsin) at mealtime, especially the older you get. In fact, 75% of folks over 50 have TOO LITTLE stomach acid.. Continue reading #031 Acid/Alkaline Myth. ...
Enzymes which are able to hydrolyze proteins. They are found in all living beings and are an important part of digestive enzymes: pancreatic (trypsin and chymotrypsin) and gastric (pepsin).. They are orally used for gastrointestinal disorders and topically on wounds and burns. Some (chymotrypsin) are used in cataract surgery. There is an increasing trend on type and therapeutic uses (Craik 2011). There is no evidence of its efficacy in the treatment of post-traumatic or post-surgical inflammations or in respiratory diseases. At latest update relevant published data on excretion into breast milk were not found. Because the small dose used and low plasma uptake of most topical dermatological and ophthalmological preparations it is unlikely that significant amounts of it will pass into breastmilk. Its high molecular weight turns further improbable any excretion into breastmilk. Due to its protein nature, when orally taken it is digested by the infants intestine, hence its absorption and passage
Protein digestion mainly occurs in the small intestine. Amino acids are bound together using peptide bonds to form protein (polypeptide). The enzymes responsible for breaking down protein are called proteases (for example pepsin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin), which are secreted in the stomach and small intestine. In todays lab you will determine how temperature and pH affect the enzymatic rate of pepsin (a stomach protease). You will also determine how the presence of pepsin affects the rate of protein (albumin) digestion. ...
Results: pretreatment of rats, either irradiated or non-irradiated, with AEP effectively protected against Indo-induced gastric ulceration. This was associated with a reduction in acid output and peptic activity and an increase in the secretion of mucin. The mucosal prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) level was also increased. The levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin-1beta (IL-1β) were suppressed to the same extent after treatment. Both propolis and Lanso were effective in reducing the number of gastric lesions as well as the plasma level of malondialdehyde (MDA ...

A-This is a western blot of the 4 factors selected earlier along with a few other proteins the authors viewed as important. ϐ-actin is a load control. Nanog is a protein that was thought by the authors to be essential to pluripotency due to its role in ES cells however the tests in this lab indicated that wasnt true for our iPS strains. The western blot shows that the ES cells have more than double the Nanog of the iPS strain with the most, iPS-MEF10-6. ERas is a protein that is important in the tumor-like growth properties of ES cells. This protein is present in ES cells and all of the iPS strains, though iPS-MEF4-7 has a fraction of the ERas of the other two cells. p53 is a tumor suppressor protein that works to counteract tumor-like proliferation such as that found in ES cells. The most p53 is found in the MEF cells, with all the other strains having much less p53. This makes sense for the high, constant, tumor-like rate of growth of these strains as shown in figure 1D..
