Crystal structure of MHC class II-associated p41 Ii fragment bound to cathepsin L reveals the structural basis for differentiation between cathepsins L and S. (1/5338)

The lysosomal cysteine proteases cathepsins S and L play crucial roles in the degradation of the invariant chain during maturation of MHC class II molecules and antigen processing. The p41 form of the invariant chain includes a fragment which specifically inhibits cathepsin L but not S. The crystal structure of the p41 fragment, a homologue of the thyroglobulin type-1 domains, has been determined at 2.0 A resolution in complex with cathepsin L. The structure of the p41 fragment demonstrates a novel fold, consisting of two subdomains, each stabilized by disulfide bridges. The first subdomain is an alpha-helix-beta-strand arrangement, whereas the second subdomain has a predominantly beta-strand arrangement. The wedge shape and three-loop arrangement of the p41 fragment bound to the active site cleft of cathepsin L are reminiscent of the inhibitory edge of cystatins, thus demonstrating the first example of convergent evolution observed in cysteine protease inhibitors. However, the different fold of the p41 fragment results in additional contacts with the top of the R-domain of the enzymes, which defines the specificity-determining S2 and S1' substrate-binding sites. This enables inhibitors based on the thyroglobulin type-1 domain fold, in contrast to the rather non-selective cystatins, to exhibit specificity for their target enzymes.  (+info)

Bile duct epithelial cells exposed to alpha-naphthylisothiocyanate produce a factor that causes neutrophil-dependent hepatocellular injury in vitro. (2/5338)

The acute hepatotoxicity induced by alpha-naphthylisothiocyanate (ANIT) in rats is manifested as neutrophil-dependent necrosis of bile duct epithelial cells (BDECs) and hepatic parenchymal cells. This hepatotoxicity mirrors that of drug-induced cholangiolitic hepatitis in humans. Since BDECs are primary targets of ANIT-induced toxicity, we hypothesized that after exposure to ANIT, BDECs produce a factor(s) that causes neutrophil chemotaxis and neutrophil-dependent hepatocellular injury. To test this hypothesis BDECs were isolated from male Sprague Dawley rats and incubated with ANIT (6.25, 12.5, 25, or 50 microM) or vehicle for 24 h. The conditioned medium (CM) was collected and placed in the bottom chamber of a two-chambered chemotaxis system, while isolated neutrophils were placed in the top chamber. Chemotaxis was indicated by neutrophil migration through a membrane to the bottom chamber. CM from BDECs exposed to each concentration of ANIT was chemotactic, whereas CM from vehicle-treated BDECs was not. ANIT alone caused a modest degree of chemotaxis at 50 microM. The conditioned media were added to isolated hepatocytes or to hepatocyte-neutrophil cocultures and incubated for 24 h. Hepatocyte toxicity was indicated by alanine aminotransferase release into the culture medium. CM from vehicle-treated BDECs did not cause hepatocyte killing in either hepatocyte-neutrophil cocultures or hepatocyte cultures. In contrast, the addition of CM from ANIT-treated BDECs (CM-BDEC-A) to hepatocyte-neutrophil cocultures resulted in hepatocyte killing. The same CM was not cytotoxic to hepatocyte cultures devoid of neutrophils. The hepatocyte killing could not be explained by residual ANIT in the CM, which was below the limit of detection (< or = 0.5 microM). The addition of antiproteases afforded protection against neutrophil-dependent hepatocellular injury induced by CM-BDEC-A. These results indicate that ANIT causes BDECs to release a factor(s) that attracts neutrophils and stimulates them to injure hepatocytes in vitro.  (+info)

A new sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from latex of Carica papaya. (3/5338)

The structure of a sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from the latex of Carica papaya was studied. Sugar chains liberated on hydrazinolysis were N-acetylated, and their reducing-end residues were tagged with 2-aminopyridine. One major sugar chain was detected on size-fractionation and reversed-phase HPLC analyses. The structure of the PA-sugar chain was determined by two-dimensional sugar mapping combined with sequential exoglycosidase digestion and partial acid hydrolysis, and by 750 MHz 1H-NMR spectroscopy. The structure found was Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3)Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3) (Xylbeta1-2)Manbeta1- 4GlcNAcbeta1-4(Fucalpha1-3)GlcNAc. This sugar chain represents a new plant-type sugar chain with five mannose residues.  (+info)

CD44 cleavage induced by a membrane-associated metalloprotease plays a critical role in tumor cell migration. (4/5338)

CD44 is a cell surface receptor for hyaluronate, a component of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Although CD44 has been implicated in tumor invasion and metastasis, the molecular mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Here we find that CD44 expressed in cancer cells is cleaved at the membrane-proximal region of the ectodomain and the membrane-bound cleavage product can be detected using an antibody against the cytoplasmic domain of CD44. Furthermore, we report that CD44 cleavage is mediated by a membrane-associated metalloprotease expressed in cancer cells. A tissue inhibitor of metalloproteases-1 (TIMP-1), as well as metalloprotease inhibitors, inhibit CD44 cleavage in the cell-free assay. Contrary, serine protease inhibitors enhance CD44 cleavage, and the enhancement can be prevented by pretreatment with a metalloprotease inhibitor. Thus, CD44 cleavage is regulated by an intricate balance between some proteases and their inhibitors. Interestingly, treatment with the metalloprotease blocker 1,10-phenanthroline, which strongly prevent the CD44 cleavage, suppressed RERF-LC-OK lung cancer cell migration on a hyaluronate substrate, but not on several other substrates. These results suggest that CD44 cleavage plays a critical role in an efficient cell-detachment from a hyaluronate substrate during the cell migration and consequently promotes CD44-mediated cancer cell migration. Our present data indicate that CD44, not only ECM per se, is one of the targets of pericellular proteolysis involved in tumor invasion and metastasis.  (+info)

Role of proteases in implantation. (5/5338)

Implantation of the embryo into the endometrium is a critical step in the establishment of pregnancy and the failure of embryos to implant is a major limiting factor in the success of reproductive technologies. Furthermore, one or more of the molecules of importance at implantation could provide a suitable target for post-coital contraception. While there is considerable species variation in the extent to which the trophoblast invades the maternal endometrium and makes contact with the maternal blood supply, many of the molecular mechanisms are conserved among species. Three families of protease are involved in the matrix degradation required for implantation: the cysteine, serine and matrix metalloproteinases. Other proteases are required for the activation of regulatory molecules. Although trophoblast from all species appears to have a high invasive potential, this is limited by the presence of partner protease inhibitors, the presence of which provides restraint to this invasion. It is the balance between the proteases and their inhibitors at any focal point that determines the site and extent of trophoblast invasion. This review examines the literature regarding proteases and their inhibitors at early implantation sites across a range of species with very different forms of placentation and evaluates their common features and their dissimilarities.  (+info)

Dietary fish oils inhibit early events in the assembly of very low density lipoproteins and target apoB for degradation within the rough endoplasmic reticulum of hamster hepatocytes. (6/5338)

Dietary fish oils inhibited secretion and stimulated intracellular degradation of apolipoprotein (apo)B in hamster hepatocytes, while dietary sunflower oils stimulated secretion and had no effect on degradation of apoB. To investigate the intracellular site at which fish oils act, we have made use of our previous observations that inhibition of degradation by N-acetyl-leucyl-leucyl-norleucinal (ALLN) results in accumulation of apoB in the trans -Golgi membrane and does not stimulate secretion, while inhibition of degradation by o-phenanthroline results in accumulation of apoB in the rough endoplasmic reticulum membrane and stimulates secretion. Thus, ALLN protects apoB which has been diverted from secretion and o -phenanthroline protects apoB which is targetted for secretion. Addition of o -phenantholine to the incubation medium of hepatocytes from fish oil-fed hamsters inhibited degradation of apoB and stimulated its secretion in particles of the density of VLDL, while addition of ALLN had no effect. These observations suggest that dietary fish oils reversibly inhibit early steps in the assembly of very low density lipoprotein precursors and target apoB for degradation in the rough endoplasmic reticulum.  (+info)

Suppression of experimental abdominal aortic aneurysms by systemic treatment with a hydroxamate-based matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor (RS 132908). (7/5338)

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are associated with chronic inflammation, disruption of medial elastin, and increased local production of elastolytic matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). The purpose of this study was to investigate how treatment with a hydroxamate-based MMP antagonist (RS 132908) might affect the development of experimental AAAs. METHODS: Male Wistar rats underwent intraluminal perfusion of the abdominal aorta with 50 units of porcine pancreatic elastase followed by treatment for 14 days with RS 132908 (100 mg/kg/day subcutaneously; n = 8) or with vehicle alone (n = 6). The external aortic diameter (AD) was measured in millimeters before elastase perfusion and at death, with AAA defined as an increase in AD (DeltaAD) of at least 100%. Aortic wall elastin and collagen concentrations were measured with assays for desmosine and hydroxyproline, and fixed aortic tissues were examined by light microscopy. RESULTS: AAAs developed in all vehicle-treated rats, with a mean AD (+/- SE) that increased from 1.60 +/- 0.03 mm before perfusion to 5.98 +/- 1.02 mm on day 14 (DeltaAD = 276.4 +/- 67.7%). AAAs developed in only five of eight animals (62.5%) after MMP inhibition, with a mean AD that increased from 1.56 +/- 0.05 mm to 3.59 +/- 0.34 mm (DeltaAD = 128.1 +/- 18.7%; P <.05, vs vehicle). The overall inhibition of aortic dilatation attributable to RS 132908 was 53.6 +/- 6.8%. Aortic wall desmosine fell by 85.4% in the vehicle-treated rats (1210.6 +/- 87.8 pmol/sample to 176.7 +/- 33.4 pmol/sample; P <.05) but only by 65.6% in the animals treated with RS 312908 (416.2 +/- 120.5 pmol/sample). In contrast, hydroxyproline was not significantly affected by either elastase perfusion or drug treatment. Microscopic examination revealed the preservation of pericellular elastin and a greater degree of fibrocollagenous wall thickening after MMP inhibition, with no detectable difference in the extent of inflammation. CONCLUSIONS: Systemic MMP inhibition suppresses aneurysmal dilatation in the elastase-induced rodent model of AAA. Consistent with its direct inhibitory effect on various MMPs, RS 132908 promotes the preservation of aortic elastin and appears to enhance a profibrotic response within the aortic wall. Hydroxamate-based MMP antagonists may therefore be useful in the development of pharmacologic approaches to the suppression of AAAs.  (+info)

HaCaT human keratinocytes express IGF-II, IGFBP-6, and an acid-activated protease with activity against IGFBP-6. (8/5338)

The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system plays an important role in skin. HaCaT human keratinocytes proliferate in response to IGFs and synthesize IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3). Recently, IGFBP-6 was also identified by NH2-terminal sequencing, but it has not been identified by Western ligand blotting. In the present study, IGFBP-6 was detected in HaCaT-conditioned medium by use of immunoblotting and Western ligand blotting with 125I-labeled IGF-II. Proteolytic activity against IGFBPs, an important mechanism for regulation of their activity, was then studied. An acid-activated, cathepsin D-like protease that cleaved both IGFBP-6 and IGFBP-3 was detected. Although proteolysis did not substantially reduce the size of immunoreactive IGFBP-6, it greatly reduced the ability of IGFBP-6 to bind 125I-IGF-II as determined by Western ligand blotting and solution assay. HaCaT keratinocytes do not express IGF-I mRNA, but IGF-II mRNA and protein expression was detected. These observations suggest the possibility of an autocrine IGF-II loop that is regulated by the relative expression of IGF-II, IGFBP-3, and IGFBP-6, and IGFBP proteases in these keratinocytes, although demonstration of this loop requires further study.  (+info)

A second (and almost never present) desirable trait is afore knowledge that inhibition or loss of function of the target is likely to have the desired effect and be safe in humans. Early genetics work identified human subjects with nonsense mutations in PCSK9, and it was found that carriers not only had lower plasma LDL cholesterol levels but also a large reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease.10 Furthermore, adult carriers appeared otherwise healthy.. Given the widespread availability of various protease inhibitors, the fact that PCSK9 is a protease led to the notion that it might be straightforward to develop small molecule inhibitors. Unfortunately, basic science data showed that the ability of the protein to degrade the LDL receptor does not require its protease activity and instead relies on the extracellular interaction of secreted PCSK9 and the LDL receptor.7,11 Given that small molecule protease inhibitors are unlikely to be effective, attention has been turned to alternative ...
After 48 weeks, therapy for all patients was converted to the same dose of Kaletra® with stavudine and lamivudine. Of the original group of patients, 72 remained in the study through four years; seven of the 28 patients who discontinued therapy did so because of adverse events attributed to Kaletra®. All 72 patients maintained an undetectable HIV viral load of less than 400 copies per milliliter, and their CD4 counts increased consistently from the beginning of the study over the four-year period (mean increase of 416 cells per cubic millimeter ...
Potential Roles of Protease Inhibitors in Cancer Progression Protease;protease inhibitor;tumor metastasis;targeted cancer therapy; Proteases are important molecules that are involved in many key physiological processes. Protease signaling pathways are strictly controlled, and disorders in protease activity can result in pathological changes such as cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases, cancer and neurological disorders. Many proteases have been associated with increasing tumor metastasis in various human cancers, suggesting important functional roles in the metastatic process because of their ability to degrade the extracellular matrix barrier. Proteases are also capable of cleaving non-extracellular matrix molecules. Inhibitors of proteases to some extent can reduce invasion and metastasis of cancer cells, and slow down cancer progression. In this review, we focus on the role of a few proteases and their inhibitors in tumors as a basis for cancer prognostication and therapy.

Proteases, also known as peptidases or proteolytic enzymes, consists of a large number of enzymes catalyzing the hydrolysis of peptide bonds and subsequently resulting in the degradation of protein substrates into amino acids. Proteases are involved in a wide range of human diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, inflammatory diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Thus numerous proteases inhibitors (small molecules and proteins) have been identified to block activity of proteases. Proteases inhibitors can be classified into different types based on the class of proteases they inhibit through two general mechanisms, irreversible trapping reactions and reversible tight-binding reactions. Proteases inhibitors have been used as diagnostic or therapeutic agents for the treatment of proteases-related diseases.. ...

Boosted protease inhibitor monotherapy has emerged as an antiretroviral alternative option to avoid the use of nucleosides. After more than seven years of research with hundreds of patients exposed to this kind of therapy, controversy about its use remains. While European and Spanish guidelines for the use of antiretroviral therapy in adults include monotherapy as an alternative for simplification, experts in the USA express the view that this strategy cannot be currently recommended. Our conclusion, after more than seven years of research, is that simplification of a suppressive triple antiretroviral therapy to boosted protease inhibitor monotherapy has demonstrated safety and efficacy in a high proportion of patients. Although this is not a strategy to implement indiscriminately in all patients, it could be a good option for those patients with toxicity related to nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, or for trying to avoid such toxicities in virologically controlled patients without ...
The use of protease inhibitors is increasing in HIV-infected children because this treatment has resulted in improved body weight, improved immune status and less hospitalizations. However, recent reports suggest that these drugs may also be associated with some negative side-effects, specifically a syndrome of diabetes and fat redistribution. Development of the fat redistribution/diabetes syndrome has recently been reported in HIV-infected children, as well as in adults. Diabetes is associated with complications such as increased heart disease, eye disease and loss of kidney function. Thus development of diabetes is a significant problem which could outweigh the benefits obtained by treating patients with protease inhibitors. One major cause of diabetes is lack of normal response to insulin (insulin resistance). Insulin resistance tends to be worse in family members where one or more parent has diabetes, and is also worse in certain ethnic groups. The first major purpose of our study is measure ...

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 ...

N2 - Antiretroviral therapy offers many options, largely based on the next-generation protease inhibitors (PIs). Early PI-based treatments involve high pill burdens and dosing schedules, and concerns of long-term toxicities are well established. In patients who have already achieved viral suppression, novel agents and strategies should be used to simplify the dosing treatment, reduce adverse events or preserve drug options. In experienced patients, drug escalation between PIs and different associations between classes allow virological suppression to be reached in the majority of patients. Therefore, there is a persistent clinical need for the discovery and development of new protease inhibitors. Several firms are trying to develop new types of PIs that will not be cross-resistant with existing drugs and will not require ritonavir ...
In this section, proteases are categorized into three modes of actions: (1) serine protease (2) cysteine protease (3) metalloprotease.1) Serine proteases are inhibited by AEBSF, benzamidine, etc.2) Cysteine proteases are inhibited by compounds which react with SH groups such as 2-iodoacetamide or 2-iodoacetic acid.3) Metalloproteases are inhibited by chelating agents, EDTA or 1,10-phenanthroline.4) In the course of protein extraction, proteolysis is considered to be a major problem because it leads to decreasing yields. Addition of protease inhibitors helps to avoid the proteolysis and improves recovery of the desired protein.5) In the experiment of immunoprecipitation, protease inhibitors are also used to avoid decomposition of antigens or antibodies by proteolytic impurities.6) Protease inhibitors which are frequently used in biochemical research are illustrated in this section. Thiol protease inhibitors, 2-iodoacetamide and 2-iodoacetic acid, cannot be used in protein extraction, because they form
Four main classes of proteolyic enzymes have been routinely utilized to describe proteases. The serine proteases are probably the best characterized. This class of proteases includes trypsin, chymotrypsin, and elastase. The cysteine protease class includes papain, calpain, and lysozomal cathepsins. Aspartic proteases include pepsin and rennin. Metalloproteinases include thermolysin and carboxypeptidase A.. During isolation and characterization one or all four classes of proteases may pose a threat to the fate of a protein. Broad-spectrum protease inhibitors and mixtures (or cocktails) have been developed to protect the integrity of isolated proteins. Sigma® offers and manufactures the broadest range of protease inhibitors and inhibitor cocktails of any supplier. Sigma inhibitor cocktails have been specifically formulated for particular applications as they relate to the biological source or method of expression..

This is a domain of the alpha-2-macroglobulin family.. The alpha-macroglobulin (aM) family of proteins includes protease inhibitors [(PUBMED:2473064)], typified by the human tetrameric a2-macroglobulin (a2M); they belong to the MEROPS proteinase inhibitor family I39, clan IL. These protease inhibitors share several defining properties, which include (i) the ability to inhibit proteases from all catalytic classes, (ii) the presence of a bait region and a thiol ester, (iii) a similar protease inhibitory mechanism and (iv) the inactivation of the inhibitory capacity by reaction of the thiol ester with small primary amines. aM protease inhibitors inhibit by steric hindrance [(PUBMED:2472396)]. The mechanism involves protease cleavage of the bait region, a segment of the aM that is particularly susceptible to proteolytic cleavage, which initiates a conformational change such that the aM collapses about the protease. In the resulting aM-protease complex, the active site of the protease is sterically ...

A 77003 is an antiretroviral agent and HIV-1 protease inhibitor. A77003 impairs HIV-1 protease-mediated Gag processing, interferes with the assembly and maturation of the virus, and leads to an irreversible loss of the infectivity of the virus, although a low but positive level of reversion to infectivity during the 10-day assay occurs.
It is now well known that proteases are found everywhere, in viruses and bacteria as well as in all human, animal and plant cells, and play a role in a variety of biological functions ranging from digestion, fertilization, development to senescence and death. Under physiological conditions the ability of proteases is regulated by endogenous inhibitors. However, when the activity of proteases is not regulated appropriately, disease processes can result, as seen in Alzheimers disease, cancer metastasis and tumor progression, inflammation and atherosclerosis. Thus it is evident that there is an absolute need for a tighter control of proteolytic activities in different cells and tissues. Aimed at graduate students and researchers with an interest in cellular proteolytic events, Role of Proteases in Cellular Dysfunctions is the second book on Proteases in this series. The book consists of three parts in specified topics based on current literatures for a better understanding for the readers with ...
In all Leupeptin-protease model complexes we found P1 side chain (Arg) of leupeptin is extensively involved in water interaction network (Table IV(A,B,C)). These water interactions though less in number, are also found to be present in x-ray structure of papain-leupeptin complex [34]. These interactions support the fact that P1 side chain of inhibitor, leupeptin, makes few interactions with S1 site to avoid steric hindrance with carbonyl group of Gly-23 of protease molecule and extend straight up out of the cleft towards solvent [8] making a number of interactions. Moreover the keto oxygen (O3) of ZPACK, epoxy and carbonyl oxygens of E-64, E-64-C seem to stabilize through strong and weak H-bond with water molecules within the groove of the enzymes. The amide nitrogen (N11) of ZPACK and keto oxygen (O9) of E-64, E-64-C are observed to form H-bonds with water sites thus assisting the chemical potentiality of P2 site. MD simulations also characterize some other important stereochemically potential ...
Design and Synthesis of Proteinase Inhibitors Many critical biological processes are initiated, sustained or terminated by the action of a proteinase or peptidase enzyme. Uncontrolled proteolysis is a significant factor in many pathophysiological processes, yet there are almost no drugs with which to address this. Our research has been directed at the design and evaluation of new types of inhibitors for proteinase enzymes.

G-protein coupled receptor 120 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GPR120 gene.[5][6] GPR120 is a member of the rhodopsin family of G protein-coupled receptors (GPRs).[5][6] GPR120 has also been shown to mediate the anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing effects of omega 3 fatty acids.[7] Lack of GPR120 is responsible for reduced fat metabolism, thereby leading to obesity.[8] Additionally, GPR120 has been implicated to be involved in the ability to taste fats.[9] It is expressed in taste bud cells (specifically cell type II, which contain other G-protein coupled taste receptors), and its absence leads to reduced preference to two types of fatty acid (linoleic acid and oleic acid), as well as decreased neuronal response to oral fatty acids.[10] ...
