Prion domain initiation of amyloid formation in vitro from native Ure2p. (1/6430)

The [URE3] non-Mendelian genetic element of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an infectious protein (prion) form of Ure2p, a regulator of nitrogen catabolism. Here, synthetic Ure2p1-65 were shown to polymerize to form filaments 40 to 45 angstroms in diameter with more than 60 percent beta sheet. Ure2p1-65 specifically induced full-length native Ure2p to copolymerize under conditions where native Ure2p alone did not polymerize. Like Ure2p in extracts of [URE3] strains, these 180- to 220-angstrom-diameter filaments were protease resistant. The Ure2p1-65-Ure2p cofilaments could seed polymerization of native Ure2p to form thicker, less regular filaments. All filaments stained with Congo Red to produce the green birefringence typical of amyloid. This self-propagating amyloid formation can explain the properties of [URE3].  (+info)

Tolerance of a protein to multiple polar-to-hydrophobic surface substitutions. (2/6430)

Hydrophobic substitutions at solvent-exposed positions in two alpha-helical regions of the bacteriophage P22 Arc repressor were introduced by combinatorial mutagenesis. In helix A, hydrophobic residues were tolerated individually at each of the five positions examined, but multiple substitutions were poorly tolerated as shown by the finding that mutants with more than two additional hydrophobic residues were biologically inactive. Several inactive helix A variants were purified and found to have reduced thermal stability relative to wild-type Arc, with a rough correlation between the number of polar-to-hydrophobic substitutions and the magnitude of the stability defect. Quite different results were obtained in helix B, where variants with as many as five polar-to-hydrophobic substitutions were found to be biologically active and one variant with three hydrophobic substitutions had a t(m) 6 degrees C higher than wild-type. By contrast, a helix A mutant with three similar polar-to-hydrophobic substitutions was 23 degrees C less stable than wild-type. Also, one set of three polar-to-hydrophobic substitutions in helix B was tolerated when introduced into the wild-type background but not when introduced into an equally active mutant having a nearly identical structure. Context effects occur both when comparing different regions of the same protein and when comparing the same region in two different homologues.  (+info)

Low temperature and pressure stability of picornaviruses: implications for virus uncoating. (3/6430)

The family Picornaviridae includes several viruses of great economic and medical importance. Poliovirus replicates in the human digestive tract, causing disease that may range in severity from a mild infection to a fatal paralysis. The human rhinovirus is the most important etiologic agent of the common cold in adults and children. Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) causes one of the most economically important diseases in cattle. These viruses have in common a capsid structure composed of 60 copies of four different proteins, VP1 to VP4, and their 3D structures show similar general features. In this study we describe the differences in stability against high pressure and cold denaturation of these viruses. Both poliovirus and rhinovirus are stable to high pressure at room temperature, because pressures up to 2.4 kbar are not enough to promote viral disassembly and inactivation. Within the same pressure range, FMDV particles are dramatically affected by pressure, with a loss of infectivity of more than 4 log units observed. The dissociation of polio and rhino viruses can be observed only under pressure (2.4 kbar) at low temperatures in the presence of subdenaturing concentrations of urea (1-2 M). The pressure and low temperature data reveal clear differences in stability among the three picornaviruses, FMDV being the most sensitive, polio being the most resistant, and rhino having intermediate stability. Whereas rhino and poliovirus differ little in stability (less than 10 kcal/mol at 0 degrees C), the difference in free energy between these two viruses and FMDV was remarkable (more than 200 kcal/mol of particle). These differences are crucial to understanding the different factors that control the assembly and disassembly of the virus particles during their life cycle. The inactivation of these viruses by pressure (combined or not with low temperature) has potential as a method for producing vaccines.  (+info)

Tolerance of Arc repressor to multiple-alanine substitutions. (4/6430)

Arc repressor mutants containing from three to 15 multiple-alanine substitutions have spectral properties expected for native Arc proteins, form heterodimers with wild-type Arc, denature cooperatively with Tms equal to or greater than wild type, and, in some cases, fold as much as 30-fold faster and unfold as much as 50-fold slower than wild type. Two of the mutants, containing a total of 14 different substitutions, also footprint operator DNA in vitro. The stability of some of the proteins with multiple-alanine mutations is significantly greater than that predicted from the sum of the single substitutions, suggesting that a subset of the wild-type residues in Arc may interact in an unfavorable fashion. Overall, these results show that almost half of the residues in Arc can be replaced by alanine en masse without compromising the ability of this small, homodimeric protein to fold into a stable, native-like structure.  (+info)

Specificity of native-like interhelical hydrophobic contacts in the apomyoglobin intermediate. (5/6430)

On exposure to mildly acidic conditions, apomyoglobin forms a partially folded intermediate, I. The A, B, G, and H helices are significantly structured in this equilibrium intermediate, whereas the remainder of the protein is largely unfolded. We report here the effects of mutations at helix pairing sites on the stability of I in three classes of mutants that: (i) truncate hydrophobic side chains in native helix packing sites, (ii) truncate hydrophobic side chains not involved in interhelical contacts, and (iii) extend hydrophobic side chains at residues not involved in interhelical contacts. Class I mutants significantly decrease the stability and cooperativity of folding of the intermediate. Class II and III mutants show smaller effects on stability and have little effect on cooperativity. Qualitatively similar results to those found in I were obtained for all three classes of mutants in native myoglobin (N), demonstrating that hydrophobic burial is fairly specific to native helix packing sites in I as well as in N. These results suggest that hydrophobic burial along native-like interhelical contacts is important for the formation of the cooperatively folded intermediate.  (+info)

A specific transition state for S-peptide combining with folded S-protein and then refolding. (6/6430)

We measured the folding and unfolding kinetics of mutants for a simple protein folding reaction to characterize the structure of the transition state. Fluorescently labeled S-peptide analogues combine with S-protein to form ribonuclease S analogues: initially, S-peptide is disordered whereas S-protein is folded. The fluorescent probe provides a convenient spectroscopic probe for the reaction. The association rate constant, kon, and the dissociation rate constant, koff, were both determined for two sets of mutants. The dissociation rate constant is measured by adding an excess of unlabeled S-peptide analogue to a labeled complex (RNaseS*). This strategy allows kon and koff to be measured under identical conditions so that microscopic reversibility applies and the transition state is the same for unfolding and refolding. The first set of mutants tests the role of the alpha-helix in the transition state. Solvent-exposed residues Ala-6 and Gln-11 in the alpha-helix of native RNaseS were replaced by the helix destabilizing residues glycine or proline. A plot of log kon vs. log Kd for this series of mutants is linear over a very wide range, with a slope of -0.3, indicating that almost all of the molecules fold via a transition state involving the helix. A second set of mutants tests the role of side chains in the transition state. Three side chains were investigated: Phe-8, His-12, and Met-13, which are known to be important for binding S-peptide to S-protein and which also contribute strongly to the stability of RNaseS*. Only the side chain of Phe-8 contributes significantly, however, to the stability of the transition state. The results provide a remarkably clear description of a folding transition state.  (+info)

Stretching lattice models of protein folding. (7/6430)

A new class of experiments that probe folding of individual protein domains uses mechanical stretching to cause the transition. We show how stretching forces can be incorporated in lattice models of folding. For fast folding proteins, the analysis suggests a complex relation between the force dependence and the reaction coordinate for folding.  (+info)

Analysis of protein-protein interactions by mutagenesis: direct versus indirect effects. (8/6430)

Site-directed mutagenesis, including double-mutant cycles, is used routinely for studying protein-protein interactions. We now present a case analysis of chymotrypsin inhibitor 2 (CI2) and subtilisin BPN' using (i) a residue in CI2 that is known to interact directly with subtilisin (Tyr42) and (ii) two CI2 residues that do not have direct contacts with subtilisin (Arg46 and Arg48). We find that there are similar changes in binding energy on mutation of these two sets of residues. It can thus be difficult to interpret mutagenesis data in the absence of structural information.  (+info)

TY - GEN. T1 - Sensitivity enhancement of leakage current microsensor for detection of target protein by using protein denaturant. AU - Lorchirachoonkul, P.. AU - Yamashita, K.. AU - Noda, M.. AU - Shimanouchi, Toshinori. AU - Umakoshi, H.. AU - Kuboi, R.. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010.

In this work, the addition of guanidinium hydrochloride (GuHCl) as protein denaturant successfully leads a prominent improvement in sensitivity by 129-fold of magnitude, although target protein, which is carbonic anhydrase from bovine (CAB), weakly interacts with liposome under the normal condition. Moreover, we can use it to evaluate the conformation state of CAB protein such as Native, Molten-Globule and Unfold states and we can use this leakage current ...
Cyclic PNAs targeting the HIV-1 TAR RNA loop have been synthesized following a convenient solid-phase strategy which allows on-resin cyclisation. UV-monitored thermal denaturation studies demonstrate that these cyclic PNAs are able to strongly interact with their TAR RNA target, very likely through the formation of a six-base pair stable complex, involving the TAR RNA loop.
article{59bb1196-24eb-433d-9855-9f47e2375da3, abstract = {Unlike most ordered molecular systems, globular proteins exhibit a temperature of maximum stability, implying that the structure can be disrupted by cooling. This cold denaturation phenomenon is usually linked to the temperature-dependent hydrophobic driving force for protein folding. Yet, despite the key role played by protein−water interactions, hydration changes during cold denaturation have not been investigated experimentally. Here, we use water−17O spin relaxation to monitor the hydration dynamics of the proteins BPTI, ubiquitin, apomyoglobin, and β-lactoglobulin in aqueous solution from room temperature down to −35 °C. To access this temperature range without ice formation, we contained the protein solution in nonperturbing picoliter emulsion droplets. Among the four proteins, only the destabilized apomyoglobin was observed to cold denature. Ubiquitin was found to be thermodynamically stable at least down to −32 °C, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Ureaerature phase diagrams capture the thermodynamics of denatured state expansion that accompany protein unfolding. AU - Tischer, Alexander. AU - Auton, Matthew. PY - 2013/9. Y1 - 2013/9. N2 - We have analyzed the thermodynamic properties of the von Willebrand factor (VWF) A3 domain using urea-induced unfolding at variable temperature and thermal unfolding at variable urea concentrations to generate a phase diagram that quantitatively describes the equilibrium between native and denatured states. From this analysis, we were able to determine consistent thermodynamic parameters with various spectroscopic and calorimetric methods that define the urea-temperature parameter plane from cold denaturation to heat denaturation. Urea and thermal denaturation are experimentally reversible and independent of the thermal scan rate indicating that all transitions are at equilibrium and the vant Hoff and calorimetric enthalpies obtained from analysis of individual thermal transitions are ...
The denaturation of bovine serum albumin (BSA) by guanidine hydrochloride (GdnHC1) showed a single-step, two-state transition, when monitored by different probes such as intrinsic fluorescence at 338 and 333 nm after excitation at 280 and 295 nm respectively, UV difference spectral signal at 288 nm, 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulphonate (ANS) fluorescence at 470 nm after excitation at 380 nm, bromophenol blue (BPB)-induced difference spectral signal at 619 nm and A.,„„ of positive difference spectral signal of BPB-BSA complex. A comparison of the denaturation curves obtained with the above mentioned probes showed differences in the requirement of GdnHC1 concentration• for the transition to start and complete.

Proteins are stable in their compact, folded structures only in a narrow range of physiological conditions. Deviation from these conditions, such as changes in temperature and salt concentrations, can destabilize the folded structures. Investigating the mechanism(s) of protein denaturation induced by these extreme conditions has a fundamental importance in understanding of the evolution of organisms with extreme habitats and formulating effective long-term preservation strategies for biological therapeutics. Using replica-exchange molecular dynamics simulations, we examine the mechanisms of cold- and salt-induced denaturation of a fully-atomistic model of the Trp-cage miniprotein, and we make direct comparison with the unfolding behavior at high temperatures. In contrast to the complete unraveling of the secondary and tertiary structures observed during heat denaturation, the cold-denatured structure of the Trp-cage is compact and partially folded with stable alpha-helix, despite the loss of ...
Using a newly developed microsecond pressure-jump apparatus, we monitor the refolding kinetics of the helix-stabilized five-helix bundle protein λ*YA, the Y22W/Q33Y/G46,48A mutant of λ-repressor fragment 6-85, from 3 μs to 5 ms after a 1,200-bar P-drop. In addition to a microsecond phase, we observe a slower 1.4-ms phase during refolding to the native state. Unlike temperature denaturation, pressure denaturation produces a highly reversible helix-coil-rich state. This difference highlights the importance of the denatured initial condition in folding experiments and leads us to assign a compact nonnative helical trap as the reason for slower P-jump-induced refolding. To complement the experiments, we performed over 50 μs of all-atom molecular dynamics P-drop refolding simulations with four different force fields. Two of the force fields yield compact nonnative states with misplaced α-helix content within a few microseconds of the P-drop. Our overall conclusion from experiment and simulation ...

The guanidinium chloride (GdmCl) denaturation of RNAase A, lysozyme and metmyoglobin was investigated at several pH values by using absorbance measurements at 287, 300 and 409 nm respectively. From these measurements the free-energy change on denaturation, delta Gapp., was calculated, assuming a two-state mechanism, and values of delta Gapp. at zero concentration of the denaturant were measured. For each protein all delta Gapp. values were adjusted to pH 7.00 by using the appropriate relationship between delta Gapp. and pH. Dependence of the adjusted delta Gapp. value on GdmCl concentration increases for metmyoglobin and decreases for the other two proteins as the denaturant concentration decreases. It has been shown that these are expected results if the presence of the acid-denatured state during the GdmCl denaturation of proteins is considered. ...
The chaperone-like protein alpha-crystallin is a approximately 35 subunit hetero-oligomer consisting of alphaA and alphaB subunits in a 3:1 molar ratio and has the function of maintaining eye lens transparency. We studied the thermal denaturation of alpha-crystallin by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), circular dichroism (CD), and dynamic light scattering (DLS) as a function of pH. Our results show that between pH 7 and 10 the protein undergoes a reversible thermal transition. However, the thermodynamic parameters obtained by DSC are inconsistent with the complete denaturation of an oligomeric protein of the size of alpha-crystallin. Accordingly, the CD data suggest the presence of extensive residual secondary structure above the transition temperature. Within the pH range from 4 to 7 the increased aggregation propensity around the isoelectric point (pI approximately 6) precludes observation of a thermal transition. As pH decreases below 4 the protein undergoes a substantial unfolding. ...

High sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.) and uv-visible spectrophotometry have been used to study the thermal unfolding of alpha-chymotrypsin in presence of calcium chloride at pH = 2.8, 3.4, 5.0, 7.0, and 8.2. Quantitative thermodynamic parameters accompanying the thermal transitions have been evaluated. In the absence of calcium ions, the thermal denaturation of a-chymotrypsin is a reversible process giving a ratio of the vant Hoff to calorimetric enthalpy of 0.92 at pH = 2.8. At pH values higher than 5.0, the thermal denaturations in the absence of calcium chloride were observed to be completely irreversible. In the presence of calcium chloride, alpha-chymotrypsin undergoes irreversible thermal denaturation and its thermal transitions are found to be scan-rate dependent fitting to the model N-2 --, I, yielding an average activation energy of (419 +/- 16) kJ (.) mol(-1) using different approaches at pH = 2.8. It is also observed that at pH 2.8 and 3.4, calcium reduces the ...
Transmembrane α-helical proteins are unusually stable judging from thermal denaturation studies, because they do not unfold completely within the membranes (the complete unfolding would require breaking down too many α-helical H-bonds in the nonpolar media). On the other hand, these proteins easily misfold, due to non-native aggregation in membranes, transition to the molten globule states, formation of non-native disulfide bonds, or unfolding of peripheral regions and nonregular loops that are locally less stable. It is also important to properly define the unfolded state. The unfolded state of membrane proteins in detergent micelles is different from that in the thermal denaturation experiments. This state represents a combination of folded hydrophobic α-helices and partially unfolded segments covered by the detergent. For example, the unfolded bacteriorhodopsin in SDS micelles has four transmembrane α-helices folded, while the rest of the protein is situated at the micelle-water ...
Refolding of proteins is traditionally carried out either by diluting the denaturant-unfolded protein into buffer (GdmCl-jump) or by mixing the acid-denatured protein with strong buffer (pH-jump). The first method does not allow direct measurement of folding rates in water since the GdmCl cannot be infinitely diluted, and the second method suffers from the limitation that many proteins cannot be pH-denatured. Further, some proteins do not refold reversibly from low pH where they get trapped as aggregation prone intermediates. Here, we present an alternative approach for direct measurement of refolding rates in water, which does not rely on extrapolation. The protein is denatured in SDS, and is then mixed with -cyclodextrin, which rapidly strips SDS molecules from the protein, leaving the naked unfolded protein to refold.. ...
Within the framework of the Peyrard-Bishop model for DNA melting, sharp denaturation temperature profiles can currently be obtained only if anharmonic base-pair stacking interactions are considered. We show that, when solvent interactions are included, a sharp denaturation of the DNA double helix is obtained without the need for anharmonic nearest-neighbor interactions. Using the concept of pseudo-Schrodinger equations we discuss the analogy of these transition to quantum-mechanical tunneling, and in particular we show that the sharp transitions are similar to resonant tunneling..

Guanidine HCl, the crystalline compound of strong alkalinity formed by the oxidation of guanine, is a normal product of protein metabolism and a protein denaturant.
Certain bacterial species produce extracellular enzymes that lyse red blood cells in the blood agar (hemolysis). These hemolysins (extotoxin) radially diffuses outwards from the colony (or colonies) causing complete or partial destruction of the red cells (RBC) in the medium and complete denaturation of hemoglobin within the cells to colorless products.. Four types of hemolysis are produced in sheep blood agar by Streptococci namely; alpha hemolysis, beta hemolysis, gamma hemolysis and alpha prime or wide zone alpha hemolysis.. Hemolysis is best observed by examining colonies grown under anaerobic conditions or inspecting sub-surface colonies.. ...

Background: Champedak galactose-binding (CGB) lectin is a tetrameric protein with noncovalently bound monomers, isolated from Artocarpus integer fruit seeds. We had previously reported existence of a structured monomer and an unfolded monomer of CGB lectin at pH 2.5 and pH 1.5, respectively. Polyols are known to induce significant refolding in denatured proteins and stabilize proteins against environmental stresses. Studies on the effect of various polyols on the acid-denatured states of CGB lectin are lacking. Objective: The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of four different polyols, namely, ethylene glycol, erythritol, xylitol and sorbitol on the acid-denatured states of CGB lectin. Methods: CGB lectin was subjected to acid denaturation at pH 2.5 and pH 1.5, both in the absence and presence of 30% (w/v) polyols, i.e. ethylene glycol, erythritol, xylitol and sorbitol. Thermal denaturation of the acid-denatured states was also studied in the absence and presence of these ...
The reversible thermal unfolding of the archaeal histone-like protein Ssh10b from the extremophile Sulfolobus shibatae was studied using differential scanning calorimetry and circular dichroism spectroscopy. Analytical ultracentrifugation and gel filtration showed that Ssh10b is a stable dimer in the pH range 2.5-7.0. Thermal denaturation data fit into a two-state unfolding model, suggesting that the Ssh10 dimer unfolds as a single cooperative unit with a maximal melting temperature of 99.9 degrees C and an enthalpy change of 134 kcal/mol at pH 7.0. The heat capacity change upon unfolding determined from linear fits of the temperature dependence of DeltaH(cal) is 2.55 kcal/(mol K). The low specific heat capacity change of 13 cal/(mol K residue) leads to a considerable flattening of the protein stability curve (DeltaG (T)) and results in a maximal DeltaG of only 9.5 kcal/mol at 320 K and a DeltaG of only 6.0 kcal/mol at the optimal growth temperature of Sulfolobus.

Lydias main research interests are directed at improving functional properties of food proteins and proteins derived from food waste. There is a demand in the food industry for protein-based fat replacers as well as replacement of costly dairy-based protein ingredients by low cost plant-based proteins. Lydia is in involved in modifying functional properties such as solubility, binding, foaming, thickening and gelling properties by heat-induced denaturation and/or glycation with sugars and oligosaccharides via the Maillard reaction. Nano-particles are generated by denaturation and polymerisation/aggregation and particle size is controlled by technology based on monitoring of light scattering. Soluble fibres (oligosaccharides) extracted from pulses, dates and seeds are extracted and characterised by HPLC and protein-fiber conjugates are formed by controlled denaturation and glycation. The physicochemical properties of the compounds are studied using proteomic techniques such as SDS PAGE and ...
The genome of Mycobacterium tuberculosis encodes for 11 pairs of Esx family proteins such as EsxA/EsxB and EsxO/EsxP that are located in pairs within the genome. Despite the clear importance of the Esx family proteins in mycobacterial virulence and pathogenesis, the precise molecular functions and mechanisms of action for these proteins remain unknown. Initially expression vectors carrying EsxO and EsxP were constructed and used to express these proteins as inclusion products. The inclusion bodies of both proteins were successfully resolubilized and co-refolded. The final purification step by gel filtration chromatography shows that these proteins form a tight 1:1 heterodimeric complex. Analysis using circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy of the purified refolded complex showed that it contained a high helical content (53%). The complex showed a significant resistance to heat-induced denaturation with co-operative denaturation observed that indicates a stable folded structure. In addition, ...
This is because the Gibbs free energy also depends on the concentration of the reactants and products. Hence, for a reaction, if the energy change is negative it moves forwards, forming more product, which also changes the concentrations of the species involved. The Gibbs energy change at this new concentration will be less negative than that in the initial case, but the reaction still proceeds since the reaction is accompanied by a negative change of free energy.. A point comes, where the concentrations of the reactions and the products is such, that the Gibbs energy change now becomes zero for the particular reaction. This is the equilibrium condition (minimum free energy, maximum entropy). If the energy change is positive, the reverse reaction becomes favorable, again inching towards the zero energy change condition, i.e. equilibrium. So, the reaction is already at the minimum Gibbs energy when it is at equilibrium. Further proceeding of the reaction will be accompanied by a positive change, ...
Generally, proteins have a short half-life and denaturation easily occurs such as by aggregation of monomers, precipitation by aggregation, and adsorption to ampoule walls when exposed to extreme temperatures, interface of water and air, high pressure, physical and mechanical stresses, organic solvents, contamination by microorganisms and the like. Denatured proteins lose their native physiochemical properties and physiological activity, and the denaturation of protein is generally irreversible. Thus, proteins cannot recover their native properties, once denatured. Especially, in case of proteins such as erythropoietin, which is administered in single dosages as small as a few micrograms, when they are adsorbed to the ampoule wall due to the disappearance of stability, the loss resulting therefrom is relatively considerable. Furthermore, the protein thus adsorbed easily aggregates via a denaturation process, and administration of the denatured protein causes antibodies, as spontaneously produced ...
Ken Houk has produced a very nice minireview on bifurcations in organic reactions.1 This article is a great introduction to a topic that has broad implication for mechanistic concepts. Bifurcations result when a valley-ridge inflection point occurs on or near the intrinsic reaction coordinate. This inflection point allows trajectories to split into neighboring basins (to proceed to different products) without crossing a second transition state. In the examples discussed, the reactant crosses a single transition state and then leads to two different products. This is the so-called two-step no intermediate process.. I discuss the implications of these kinds of potential energy surfaces, and other ones of a pathological nature, in the last chapter of my book. Very interesting reaction dynamics often are the result, leading to a mechanistic understanding far from the ordinary!. ...

A commercially available zooblot containing 8 μg of EcoRI-digested genomic DNA isolated from various species (human, monkey, rat, mouse, dog, cow, rabbit, chicken, and yeast) was purchased (BD Biosciences-Clontech, Palo Alto, CA). A 376-bp DNA probe corresponding to exon 6 of the human ELOVL4 gene was generated from a genomic DNA template by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), with primers 5′-GAAGATGCCGATGTTGTTAAAAG-3′ and 5′-GTCAACAACAGTTAAGGCCCA-3′. PCR cycling parameters used were as follows: 1 cycle of denaturation at 94°C for 3 minutes; 30 cycles of denaturation at 94°C for 30 seconds, primer annealing at 55°C for 30 seconds, primer extension at 72°C for 40 seconds; and 1 cycle of extension at 72°C for 3 minutes. A probe corresponding to ELOVL4 coding regions was also generated by total cDNA synthesis with a commercial kit (Invitrogen Canada, Inc., Burlington, Ontario, Canada) and 5 μg of human retina total RNA as template, followed by PCR using 100 ng total cDNA template with ...
Despite the emerging importance of human P450 2B6 in xenobiotic metabolism, thorough biochemical and biophysical characterization has been impeded as a result of low expression in Escherichia coli. Comparison with similar N-terminal truncated and C-terminal His-tagged constructs (rat P450 2B1dH, rabbit 2B4dH, and dog 2B11dH) revealed that P450 2B6dH showed the lowest thermal stability, catalytic tolerance to temperature, and chemical stability against guanidinium chloride-induced denaturation. Eleven P450 2B6dH mutants were rationally engineered based on sequence comparison with the three other P450 2B enzymes and the solvent accessibility of residues in the ligand-free crystal structure of P450 2B4dH. L198M, L264F, and L390P showed ∼3-fold higher expression than P450 2B6dH. L264F alone showed enhanced stability against thermal and chemical denaturation compared with P450 2B6dH and was characterized further functionally. L264F showed similar preferential inhibition by pyridine over imidazole ...

The dimeric nature of triosephosphate isomerases (TIMs) is maintained by a thorough surface area interface of more than 1600 ?2. to dissociate the dimer. Herein we found that the character of residue I45 controls the dimer-monomer equilibrium in TvTIMs. Unfolding experiments employing monomeric and dimeric mutants led us to conclude that dimeric TvTIMs unfold following a four state model denaturation process whereas monomeric TvTIMs follow a three state model. In contrast to other monomeric TIMs monomeric variants of TvTIM1 are stable and unexpectedly one of them (I45A) is only 29-fold less active than wild-type TvTIM1. The high enzymatic activity of monomeric TvTIMs contrast with the marginal catalytic activity of diverse monomeric TIMs variants. The stability of the monomeric variants of TvTIM1 and the use of cross-linking and analytical ultracentrifugation experiments permit us to understand the differences between the catalytic activities of TvTIMs and other marginally active monomeric TIMs. ...

This paper proposes and solves a model of sequential irreversible investment and characterizes the aggregate implications of microeconomic irreversibility and idiosyncratic uncertainty. If a large amount of idiosyncratic uncertainty is allowed for, the distributional dynamics induced by the nonlinear character of irreversible investment policies are capable of smoothing the dynamics of aggregate investment (relative to those of its forcing processes) to the extent required by U.S. data.
