It plays a major role in determining the properties of water, proteins, and other compounds.Protein Structure, Secondary: The level of protein structure in which regular hydrogen-bond interactions within contiguous stretches of polypeptide chain give rise to alpha helices, beta strands (which align to form beta sheets) or other types of coils.

- Secretory proteins, also called preproteins, are synthesized with a cleavable amino terminal signal sequence that functions both to slow folding of the preprotein and to aid in recognition of the secretory protein by export factors. (biomedcentral.com)
- Formation of the complete translocase complex promotes an ATP binding and hydrolysis cycle by SecA that results in segmental translocation of the secretory protein across the membrane [ 1 - 4 ]. (biomedcentral.com)
- Misfolding and aggregation of proteins into ordered fibrillar structures is associated with a number of severe pathologies, including Alzheimer's disease, prion diseases, and type II diabetes. (nih.gov)
- We generated and analyzed 3,621 amino acid sequence patterns, reporting highly specific patterns for each amyloid family, along with patterns likely to be involved in protein misfolding and aggregation. (nih.gov)

- Unfolded protein response activation reduces secretion and extracellular aggregation of amyloidogenic immunoglobulin light chain. (semanticscholar.org)
- In addition to their catalytic functions, proteins can transmit and commute signals from the extracellular environment, duplicate genetic information, assist in transforming the energy in light and chemicals with astonishing efficiency, convert chemical energy into mechanical work, and carry molecules between cell compartments.

- Some of these proteins were characterized by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy under acidic conditions but had a propensity to aggregate near neutral pH. (pnas.org)
- Currently, the group uses single-molecule fluorescent energy transfer confocal microscopy, ultrafast polarised fluorescence spectroscopy, and NMR spectroscopy in oriented systems to elucidate the folding in vitro of the protein flavodoxin. (wur.nl)
- The degree of interpenetration of two neutral networks of different activities in sequence space will determine how easy it is to evolve from one activity to another. (wikipedia.org)
- However, most protein folds are thought to evolve from other folds. (antievolution.org)
- At first glance, it might appear that exploring additional folds allows a protein to evolve new functions. (evolutionnews.org)
- All they can do is group together, forming a droplet of oil in the middle of the protein--with a surrounding shell of soluble amino acids. (indiana.edu)
- Nevertheless, we also found that the translational pausing optimization increases the fitness of the expression host, and thus benefits the recombinant protein production, independent from the soluble expression. (deepdyve.com)
- Click molecule labels to explore molecular sequence information. (nih.gov)
- Researchers used single-molecule experiments to examine coil to globule transition of proteins and have demonstrated that the denatured state showed steady expansion as the concentration of denaturant was increased. (wikibooks.org)
- The paradigm for N-AHL production is in the bioluminescence (lux) phenotype of Photobacterium fischeri (formerly classified as Vibrio fischeri ) where the signalling molecule N -(3-oxohexanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone (OHHL) is synthesized by the action of the Luxl protein. (wiley.com)
- Search proteins in UniProtKB for this molecule. (uniprot.org)
- In this sense, most natural folds can be considered to be only marginally stable. (pnas.org)
- According to Gruebele, the proteins studied in vivo using the new technique were more stable, their thermal denaturation was more gradual and their folding kinetics were slower than the same proteins studied in vitro. (bio-medicine.org)
- Gruebele said that in living cells, "You really expect a lot of heterogeneity, that there would be a lot of differences among different areas of the cell, that there might be areas of the cell where the protein might be very stable, and other places where it's very unstable. (bio-medicine.org)
- These proteins are very stable, easy to express and purify and their folding reaction is reversible under most laboratory conditions. (diva-portal.org)
- Now, two scientists from Howard Hughes Medical Institute have counted a non-trivial number of other proteins that can switch between two stable folds. (evolutionnews.org)
- Exploration and discussion of detector technology, signals and signal processing, spectral separation methods and physical mechanisms used to determine protein associations and protein diffusion in cells are integrated throughout the course. (bu.edu)
