Abstract. The use of recombinant peptides based upon the repeated amino acid sequences of Plasmodium has been proposed for malaria vaccines. By reducing homologies of such peptide vaccines to host proteins, the possibility of autoimmune complications may be reduced, and the effective immune response may be enhanced. The Wilbur and Lipman Wordsearch algorithm was used to identify homologous amino acid sequences between tandemly repeated Plasmodium amino acid sequences and the human and human viral sequences compiled in the National Biomedical Research Foundation database. Six published repetitive immunogenic amino acid sequences from the circumsporozoite (CS) antigen, ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (RESA), soluble (S) antigen, and falciparum interspersed repetitive antigen (FIRA) of P. falciparum, and the CS protein of P. vivax, were analyzed by computer. Matches of at least 4 amino acids were found for all sequences. In the database, 29 matches were found for human proteins and 26 matches

The complete amino acid sequence of bovine S antigen (48-kDa protein) has been determined by cDNA and partial amino acid sequencing. A 1623-base-pair (bp) cDNA contains an open reading frame coding for a protein of 404 amino acids (45,275 Da). Tryptic peptides and cyanogen bromide peptides of native bovine S antigen were purified and partially sequenced. All of these peptides were accounted for in the long open reading frame. Searching of the National Biomedical Research Foundation data bank revealed no extensive sequence homology between S antigen and other proteins. However, there are local regions of sequence similarity with alpha transducin, including the sites subject to ADP-ribosylation by Bordetella pertussis and cholera toxins and the phosphoryl binding-sites. Secondary structure prediction and circular dichroic spectroscopy show that S antigen is composed predominantly of beta-sheet conformation. Acid-catalyzed methanolysis suggests the presence of low levels of carbohydrate in the ...
Protein primary structure is the linear sequence of amino acids in a peptide or protein. By convention, the primary structure of a protein is reported starting from the amino-terminal (N) end to the carboxyl-terminal (C) end. Protein biosynthesis is most commonly performed by ribosomes in cells. Peptides can also be synthesized in the laboratory[citation needed]. Protein primary structures can be directly sequenced, or inferred from DNA sequences. Amino acids are polymerised via peptide bonds to form a long backbone, with the different amino acid side chains protruding along it. In biological systems, proteins are produced during translation by a cells ribosomes. Some organisms can also make short peptides by non-ribosomal peptide synthesis, which often use amino acids other than the standard 20, and may be cyclised, modified and cross-linked. Peptides can be synthesised chemically via a range of laboratory methods. Chemical methods typically synthesise peptides in the opposite order to ...
Genetic susceptibility to autoimmunity is frequently associated with specific MHC alleles. Diabetogenic MHC class II molecules, such as human HLA-DQ8 and mouse I-Ag7, typically have a small, uncharged amino acid residue at position 57 of their β chain (β57); this results in the absence of a salt bridge between β57 and Argα76, which is adjacent to the P9 pocket of the peptide-binding groove. However, the influence of Argα76 on the selection of the TCR repertoire remains unknown, particularly when the MHC molecule binds a peptide with a neutral amino acid residue at position P9. Here, we have shown that diabetogenic MHC class II molecules bound to a peptide with a neutral P9 residue primarily selected and expanded cells expressing TCRs bearing a negatively charged residue in the first segment of their complementarity determining region 3β. The crystal structure of one such TCR in complex with I-Ag7 bound to a peptide containing a neutral P9 residue revealed that a network of favorable ...
The invention provides a method for determining an amino acid sequence motif for a phosphorylation site of a protein kinase. In the method of the invention, a protein kinase is contacted with an oriented degenerate peptide library, peptides within the library which are substrates for the kinase are converted to phosphopeptides and the phosphopeptides are separated from non-phosphorylated peptides. The isolated phosphopeptides are sequenced and an amino acid sequence motif for the phosphorylation site is determined based upon the relative abundance of different amino acids residues at each degenerate position. The invention also provides peptide substrates for protein kinase A, cell cycle control kinases, src family kinases, the EGF receptor and p92.sup.c-fps/fes based upon amino acid sequence motifs for the phosphorylation sites of these kinases.
Proteins (/ˈproʊˌtiːnz/ or /ˈproʊti.ɪnz/) are large biomolecules, or macromolecules, consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. Proteins perform a vast array of functions within organisms, including catalysing metabolic reactions, DNA replication, responding to stimuli, and transporting molecules from one location to another. Proteins differ from one another primarily in their sequence of amino acids, which is dictated by the nucleotide sequence of their genes, and which usually results in protein folding into a specific three-dimensional structure that determines its activity.. A linear chain of amino acid residues is called a polypeptide. A protein contains at least one long polypeptide. Short polypeptides, containing less than 20-30 residues, are rarely considered to be proteins and are commonly called peptides, or sometimes oligopeptides. The individual amino acid residues are bonded together by peptide bonds and adjacent amino acid residues. The sequence of amino ...
The amino acid sequences of the CT and TMD of NA are highly and moderately conserved, respectively, among the influenza A viruses. Yet the specific function and role of these amino acid sequences in virus biology remain unknown. Results presented in this report show that the specific amino acid residues are not absolutely required for the influenza virus life cycle, since either the complete or part of the NA TMD or CT can be replaced and modified, yet infectious viruses can be rescued and propagated. On the other hand, our data show that specific amino acids in some regions of the TMD and CT as well as a foreign TMD have a profound influence on virus biology, causing reduction in growth during multiple cycles of infection. Reduced yield of NA mutants can be attributed to decreased enzyme activity in the virion and a defect in budding at the cell surface.. Mutations in the TMD and CT of NA can affect protein expression, maturation, transport, incorporation into virions, and enzyme activity and ...

Ubiquitin is a 76-residue protein highly conserved among eukaryotes. Conjugation of ubiquitin to intracellular proteins mediates their selective degradation in vivo. We describe a family of four ubiquitin-coding loci in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. UB11, UB12 and UB13 encode hybrid proteins in which ubiquitin is fused to unrelated (tail) amino acid sequences. The ubiquitin coding elements of UB11 and UB12 are interrupted at identical positions by non-homologous introns. UB11 and UB12 encode identical 52-residue tails, whereas UB13 encodes a different 76-residue tail. The tail amino acid sequences are highly conserved between yeast and mammals. Each tail contains a putative metal-binding, nucleic acid-binding domain of the form Cys-X2-4-Cys-X2-15-Cys-X2-4-Cys, suggesting that these proteins may function by binding to DNA. The fourth gene, UB14, encodes a polyubiquitin precursor protein containing five ubiquitin repeats in a head-to-tail, spacerless arrangement. All four ubiquitin genes ...
The primary structure of porcine brain beta-tubulin was determined by automated and manual Edman degradation of six sets of overlapping peptides. The protein consists of 445 amino acid residues and has a minimum of six positions that are heterogeneous, indicating at least two beta-tubulins in porcine brain. Comparison of the optimally aligned sequences of alpha-tubulin and beta-tubulin indicates that 41% of their primary structures are identical. A region rich in glycyl residues is similar both in sequence and predicted secondary structure to the phosphate binding loop of several nucleotide binding enzymes. beta-Tubulin contains a highly acidic COOH-terminal region that resembles the NH2-terminus of troponin T.. ...

The amino acid sequences of 301 glycosyl hydrolases and related enzymes have been compared. A total of 291 sequences corresponding to 39 EC entries could be classified into 35 families. Only ten sequences (less than 5% of the sample) could not be assigned to any family. With the sequences available for this analysis, 18 families were found to be monospecific (containing only one EC number) and 17 were found to be polyspecific (containing at least two EC numbers). Implications on the folding characteristics and mechanism of action of these enzymes and on the evolution of carbohydrate metabolism are discussed. With the steady increase in sequence and structural data, it is suggested that the enzyme classification system should perhaps be revised. ...
The supernumerary subunit g is found in all mitochondrial ATP synthases. Most of the conserved amino acid residues are present in the membrane C-terminal part of the protein that contains a dimerization motif GXXXG. In yeast, alteration of this motif leads to the loss of subunit g and of supramolecular structures of the ATP synthase with concomitant appearance of anomalous mitochondrial morphologies. Disulfide bond formation involving an engineered cysteine in position 109 of subunit g and the endogenous cysteine 28 of subunit e promoted g + g, e + g, and e + e adducts, thus revealing the proximity in the mitochondrial membrane of several subunits e and g. Disulfide bond formation between two subunits g in mitochondria increased the stability of an oligomeric structure of the ATP synthase in digitonin extracts. These data suggest the participation of the dimerization motif of subunit g in the formation of supramolecular structures and is in favor of the existence of ATP synthase associations, in ...

A standard technique to confirm the amino acid sequence of a molecule, Peptide Mapping Analysis uses multiple enzyme digest strategy to break apart a protein into smaller peptide fragments which are subsequently analysed on the mass spectrometer.. Peptide fragments digested with different enzymes will highly likely provide overlapping amino acid sequence data, allowing for the accurate determination and confirmation of the amino acid sequence of the full length of a target protein molecule.. An added value of Peptide Mapping Analysis is that modifications such as C-terminal truncations and/or N-terminal modifications may also be detected..

DNA damage can result in a variety of mutations, including point mutations, frameshift mutations, and chromosomal mutations. Point mutations include changes in DNA sequence due to substitution of one base for another during DNA replication. For example, the DNA sequence AATTCGCATTG could be replicated as AACTCGCCTTG. Changes in DNA sequence may or may not result in changes in amino acid sequence when the mutated DNA is used to code for protein. When DNA is translated into proteins, every three nucleotide bases (a codon) code for one amino acid. However, many amino acids are coded for by more than one codon. Thus, if a mutation occurs such that the mutated sequence codes for the same amino acid sequence as the old sequence, this is called a silent mutation. In evolutionary terms, this is also referred to as a neutral mutation. Silent (or neutral) mutations may also occur if there is a change in the amino acid sequence, but this does not alter the structure of the protein. However, if a point ...
An increasing number of proteins with weak sequence similarity have been found to assume similar three-dimensional fold and often have similar or related biochemical or biophysical functions. We propose a method for detecting the fold similarity between two proteins with low sequence similarity based on their amino acid properties alone. The method, the proximity correlation matrix (PCM) method, is built on the observation that the physical properties of neighboring amino acid residues in sequence at structurally equivalent positions of two proteins of similar fold are often correlated even when amino acid sequences are different. The hydrophobicity is shown to be the most strongly correlated property for all protein fold classes. The PCM method was tested on 420 proteins belonging to 64 different known folds, each having at least three proteins with little sequence similarity. The method was able to detect fold similarities for 40% of the 420 sequences. Compared with sequence comparison and ...
The results above define the location of the cleavage site in QSOX1A as occurring between the peptide sequence used to raise the anti-QSOX1A antibody and the TM domain (Figure 5A). To identify potential proteases responsible for the cleavage of QSOX1A, we first searched the UniProt database [26] for all proteases that are known to be present within the human ER and Golgi apparatus (Supplementary Table S1 at http://www.biochemj.org/bj/454/bj4540181add.htm). The resulting list of proteases was analysed manually with regard to their substrate specificities and consensus cleavage patterns. Three of the PPCs (proprotein convertases), PCSK3, PCSK6 and PCSK7, particularly stood out as they cleave at dibasic motifs, two of which are present in the QSOX1A amino acid sequence. The QSOX1A amino acid sequence also was analysed for potential cleavage sites using the ProP 1.0 Server [27]. Two of the predicted PPC cleavage sites are present in the region of interest with cleavage occurring C-terminally of ...
SEC72 encodes the 23-kD subunit of the Sec63p complex, an integral ER membrane protein complex that is required for translocation of presecretory proteins into the ER of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. DNA sequence analysis of SEC72 predicts a 21.6-kD protein with neither a signal peptide nor any transmembrane domains. Antibodies directed against a carboxyl-terminal peptide of Sec72p were used to confirm the membrane location of the protein. SEC72 is not essential for yeast cell growth, although an sec72 null mutant accumulates a subset of secretory precursors in vivo. Experiments using signal peptide chimeric proteins demonstrate that the sec72 translocation defect is associated with the signal peptide rather than with the mature region of the secretory precursor. ...

N2 - A 400 bp PCR product generated with degenerate primers derived from the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor was used to screen a rat skeletal muscle cDNA library. The predicted amino acid sequence of the 978 bp open reading frame has a predicted Mr of 35 804, an estimated isoelectric point (pI) of 5.31 and contains seven WD-40 repeats, which are common to G-protein beta subunits (Gβ). Although chemically and structurally similar to Gβ subunits, the predicted amino acid sequence, when compared with the previously cloned Gβ isoforms, was found to be only 31-41% similar and thus was named Gβ-like (GβL, Gable). Western blotting of whole-cell lysates and immunoprecipitates of membrane and cytosolic fractions of HEK 293 cells stably overexpressing a carboxy-terminal His-tagged GβL indicates that the ...
A polynucleotide sequence for the mouse ortholog of human zalphal 1 has been identified and is shown in SEQ ID NO:84 and the corresponding amino acid sequence shown in jEQ ID NO: 85. AnalYsis of the mouse zalphal 1 polypeptide encoded by the DNA\ sequence of SEQ ID N0(84)revealed an open reading frame encodmg 529 amino acids (SEQ ID NO:85) comprising a predicted secretory signal peptide of 19 amino acid residues (residue 1 (Met) to residue 19 (Ser) of SEQ ID NO:85), and a mature polypeptide of 510 amino acids (residue 20 (Cys) to residue 529 (Ser) of SEQ ID N0:2).

Adducin is a membrane-skeletal protein which is a candidate to promote assembly of a spectrin-actin network in erythrocytes and at sites of cell-cell contact in epithelial tissues. The complete sequence of both subunits of human adducin, alpha (737 amino acids), and beta (726 amino acids) has been deduced by analysis of the cDNAs. The two subunits have strikingly conserved amino acid sequences with 49% identity and 66% similarity, suggesting evolution by gene duplication. Each adducin subunit has three distinct domains: a 39-kD NH2-terminal globular protease-resistant domain, connected by a 9-kD domain to a 33-kD COOH-terminal protease-sensitive tail comprised almost entirely of hydrophilic amino acids. The tail is responsible for the high frictional ratio of adducin noted previously, and was visualized by EM. The head domains of both adducin subunits exhibit a limited sequence similarity with the NH2-terminal actin-binding motif present in members of the spectrin superfamily and actin gelation ...

Fig. 4 shows the amino acid sequences of the predicted proteins of AtFpg-1, -1a, -2, -3, and -4. Exons 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 were entirely conserved in all the Arabidopsis cDNA clones. The polypeptide chains encoded by exons 1, 5, 6,and 7 represent the major conserved regions between Arabidopsis and bacterial FPGs , showing between 29 and 54% identity between Arabidopsis and E. coli amino acid sequences. The N-terminal sequence of exon 1 and the lysine of exon 5 (K155) of E. coli FPG have been associated with the active site. The predicted amino acid sequence coded by exon 1 shows a surprising relationship to a sequence from DNA photolyase, another DNA repair enzyme but one quite unrelated to FPG (Fig. 5). If this relates to DNA binding, it might explain how AtFPG-2, which lacks the C-terminal DNA-binding region present in AtFPG-1 (or the zinc-finger of E. coli FPG) might have the DNA cleavage activities measured by Gao and Murphy (Photochem. Photobiol., in press). The optional exons are exon 4 ...
We have cloned the cDNA encoding a murine GDNF inducible transcription factor designated mGIF. It is homolgous to two human genes, TIEG (Subramaniam et al., 1995) and EGR-α (Blok et al., 1995). TIEG was cloned from fetal osteoblastic cells and found to be induced by TGF-β and by epidermal growth factor (EGF), whereas EGR-α was cloned from prostate carcinoma cells and found to be induced by EGF and repressed by androgens. TIEG and EGRα have identical amino acid sequences except for 12 residues absent in the N terminus of EGRα. Thus, TIEG and EGRα appear to be encoded by the same gene. Sequence comparison between murine mGIF and these two human proteins indicates 85% amino acid identity. Comparison of their nucleotide sequences revealed that although these cDNAs are homologous within their open reading frame, more diversity exists in their 3′ untranslated regions. Both the human and murine proteins are rich in proline. mGIF has two proline-rich regions; one contains 17 prolines of 90 ...

The following experiments were conducted to discern which domains or regions of XB130 are crucial for its Rac-dependent peripheral translocation. XB130 contains a variety of domains that in principle might contribute to its peripheral (membrane and/or lamellipodial) redistribution (Fig. 6A). Key candidate regions included the two pleckstrin homology domains, PH1 (aa 175-271) and PH2 (aa 353-446), which might be involved in the interaction between proteins and membrane phospholipids; the so called unique region (aa 491-648), which holds the lowest amino acid sequence homology to AFAP-110; the coiled-coiled motif (aa 652-750), which shows similarity to a region in AFAP-110 that harbors a leucine zipper motif for protein-protein interaction and a 17-residue stretch that is essential for F-actin binding or cross-linking; the N-terminus (aa 2-169), which contains SH3- and SH2-domain binding motifs, several tyrosine kinase target residues (e.g. Y54), as well as a putative actin-binding motif (see the ...

Whilst the fact that the single-letter codes do not all match the first letter of the amino acid that they correspond to is somewhat confusing to begin with is is worth remembering that most proteins of interest contain hundreds of amino acid residues. To illustrate how useful the amino acid codes can be lets have a look at a rather small imaginary protein with only seven residues: Alanine-Phenylalanine-Proline-Leucine-Serine-Valine-Valine-Arginine This is already irritatingly long if you have to write it out more than once. So, using the three-letter codes we have instead: ALA-PHE-PRO-LEU-SER-VAL-VAL-ARG This is already a great improvement in terms of reducing the length of the sequence that we have to write (and it remains fairly human-readable since the codes are just the first part of the amino acid names). However, if our protein had a more realistic number of residues e.g. 700 instead of 7 then this is clearly still going to be a fairly long piece of text when fully written out. Finally ...
For release 67 we changed how we store the protein function predictions from SIFT and PolyPhen so that they also can be used for more than just Ensembl transcripts, including RefSeq transcripts. We use these tools to compute the predicted effect of every possible amino acid substitution in the human proteome (over 2 billion predictions!). Now, the complete set of predictions for a particular protein are retrieved using the protein sequence itself as an identifier rather than an Ensembl stable identifier (we actually use the MD5 hash of the sequence). This means that you can retrieve predictions for any protein that has the same amino acid sequence as an Ensembl translation. So if you work with RefSeq transcripts, you can now get SIFT and PolyPhen predictions for any missense variants that fall in the 95% of RefSeq transcripts that match an Ensembl transcript exactly, using both the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) and the Variation API.. New in release 67 are also predictions from both classifier ...
Collins, J.H.; Elzinga, M., 1975: The primary structure of actin from rabbit skeletal muscle. Completion and analysis of the amino acid sequence
Both thrombin and trypsin are serine-proteases known to possess PAR-dependent vascular effects (see the Introduction). The vascular effects of thrombin and trypsin were similar in that both proteases were more potent relaxant than contractile agonists (Fig. 1), consistent with the observations of other investigators (Muramatsu et al., 1992; Hwa et al., 1996; Komuro et al., 1997). Furthermore, the protease activity responsible for activation of contractile receptors showed similar kinetics between thrombin and trypsin and contraction was a slower response than relaxation (Fig. 2). It is possible that the release of endothelial factors may play a role in generating a faster relaxant than contractile response or that the relaxant second messenger system is more rapidly activated. The differences in the time to achieve maximal relaxant and maximal contractile responses could also be due to the cleavage site amino acid sequence differences between the relaxant and contractile PARs such that enzymatic ...

Synopsis Proteins evolved from a common ancestor are said to be homologues and to constitute a "family" with potentially similar structures, functions, and interactions. The problem of identifying "real" protein families based on amino acid sequence conservation is still doubtful because algorithms that search for pairwise homologies can miss important relations and produce false hits. Problem of reconstructing the evolutionary relationships amongst proteins and of classifying them into families from a topological point of view was addressed by defining the Protein Homology Network (PHN). In the PHN, proteins are seen as nodes connected by links that represent the homology relations inferred by sequence similarity. In such a representation, protein families should appear as dense clusters disconnected from the rest of the network. The availability of a large number of sequenced genomes now allows us to map the full set of protein similarity relationships into a Protein Homology Network (PHN), ...

EST). A short partial sequence, typically 200-400 bp long, of a complementary DNA (cDNA) clone. Because cDNAs are prepared by reverse transcription of messenger RNA molecules, ESTs act as markers for genes that are expressed in particular tissues or organs. EST sequence data are held on databases, and researchers use computer programs to search for sequences that correspond to, say, a partial amino-acid sequence for a protein under investigation. The EST sequence can then be used to construct a DNA probe to locate the respective clone from a DNA library. ...
Amino acid sequence from degu islet amyloid-derived insulin shows unique sequence characteristics.: The main protein of enriched and purified amyloid from Octod
In the present study, we reported that Ufm1 acts as a new post‐translational UBL modifier, based on the following criteria: (1) It is a small protein of 9.1 kDa with a ubiquitin‐fold structure. (2) Ufm1 is synthesized in a precursor form, and the extra amino‐acid residues at the C‐terminal side need to be processed to expose the Gly residue. (3) The C‐terminal processing and exposure of glycine residue are essential to the formation of Ufm conjugates in the cells. (4) Ufm1 has specific E1‐like (Uba5) and E2‐like (Ufc1) enzymes for activation and conjugation, respectively. Intriguingly, many UBL modifiers are evolutionarily conserved from yeast to human, except interferon‐inducible UBL modifiers, such as UCRP/ISG15, Fat10, and Fau1/MNSFβ (Nakamura et al, 1995; DCunha et al, 1996; Liu et al, 1999). Ufm1, Uba5, and Ufc1 found in the present study are conserved in various multicellular organisms (Figures 1B, 2A and 4A), but not in both budding and fission yeasts, suggesting that ...
A method was developed to purify human smooth muscle filamin in high yield and structural domains were defined by using mild proteolysis to dissect the molecule into intermediate-sized peptides. Unique domains were defined and aligned by using high-resolution peptide mapping of iodinated peptides on cellulose plates. The amino- and carboxyl-terminal orientation of these domains within the molecule was determined by amino acid sequence analysis of several aligned peptides. In addition to the three unique domains which were identified, a number of smaller and larger fragments were also characterized and aligned within the intact molecule. These structural domains and related peptides provide a useful set of defined fragments for further elucidation of structure-function relationships. The two known functionally important binding sites of filamin, the self-association site and the actin-binding site, have been localized.

Because of the relatively weak hydrophobicity of HR8, the topology and geometry of PS1 "TMD7," wherein the catalytic aspartate D385 resides, remain controversial. To obtain information about the hydrophilicity of HR8 when incorporated in an active γ-secretase complex, we generated single-Cys mt PS1 at 29 consecutive amino acid residues in and around HR8 (R377-T406). Again, some mutants (i.e., G382C, G384C, D385C, G394C, G402C, D403C, and W404C) lost protein expression or activity and thus were excluded from additional analysis (supplemental Fig. 1B, available at www.jneurosci.org as supplemental material). Labeling experiments using intact cells revealed that consecutive amino acid residues from K395 to S401, and T406, were reactive with MTSEA-biotin (Fig. 4 A). The labeling of all these residues was inhibited by preincubation with MTSES or MTSET, suggesting that this entire region resides in a hydrophilic environment accessible from the extracellular side (HL7) (Fig. 4 B). Given that H351 ...

I know that there are polar uncharged amino acids (serine, threonine, asparagine, glutamine, cysteine) and polar charged amino acids (the basic and acidic amino acids). Does the charge on the acidic and basic amino acids make them more polar and hydrophilic than the uncharged polar amino acids? Moreover, cysteine is classified as an uncharged amino acid, but because it has an ionizable side chain, would it be more polar than serine, asparagine, etc.? ...
Information about approximately 38,000 full-length cDNA clones that were completely sequenced in the Rice full-length cDNA project is shown in the database. The full-length cDNA clones were collected from various tissues treated under various stress conditions. The database contains not only information about complete nucleotide sequences and encoded amino acid sequences, but also results of homology searches against public databases, mapping information, information about patterns of alternative splicing, protein domains and transmembrane structures, and information about cellular localizations and gene functions annotated with Gene Ontology.. ...
Proteins are macromolecules that play important roles in life processes such as catalyzing biological reactions, forming DNA strands, sending signals within systems, and transportation of substances in the body. They are composed of amino acid subunits, which in specific combinations form peptides linked by a C-N peptide bond. Chains of peptides are called polypeptides, or proteins.. Proteins are folded into specific spatial conformations by non-covalent bonds such as hydrogen bonding, ionic bonding, disulfide bonds, Van der Waals forces and hydrophobic interactions. There are four types of structures: primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary. Primary structure is the linear amino acid sequence, whilst the secondary structure is coiling or folding of the amino acid sequence. The tertiary structure is the three-dimensional globular structure of the protein, and the quaternary structure is the interaction of multiple polypeptides. All these structures denote the final shape of a specific ...
Three new cDNA clones (designated MCSP-1, MCSP-2, and MCSP-3) encoding mouse serine proteases were isolated from cloned cytolytic T lymphocytes (CTL) by a modified differential screening procedure. The putative mature proteins of MCSP-2 and MCSP-3 are each composed of 228 amino acids with molecular weights of 25,477 and 25,360, respectively. NH2-terminal amino acids of MCSP-2- and MCSP-3-predicted proteins were identical to those reported for granzyme E and F, respectively. The third species, MCSP-1, was closely related to the two other cDNA species but approximately 30 amino acids equivalents of the NH2-terminal portion of the cDNA were not cloned. The amino acids forming the active sites of serine proteases were well conserved among the three predicted proteins. The active site pocket residue positioned six residues before the active-site Ser184 is alanine in MCSP-1, threonine in MCSP-2, and serine in MCSP-3, indicating that both MCSP-2 and MCSP-3 may have chymotrypsin-like specificity. There ...

A region of HIF-1α encompassing amino acid residues 400-600 is necessary and sufficient for O2-regulated ubiquitination and degradation (23, 32, 74). VHL interacts, via its β-domain, with amino acid residues 532-585 of HIF-1α (55, 75). Because the ubiquitination and degradation of other key regulatory proteins such as IκB are regulated by phosphorylation, great effort was made to identify phosphorylatable (serine, threonine, tyrosine) residues of HIF-1α that were important for regulation of protein half-life, but to no avail. Instead, Pro-564 is hydroxylated in an O2-dependent manner, and this modification is required for VHL binding (25, 27, 87). Pro-402 represents a second site of hydroxylation and VHL binding (48). Pro-402 and Pro-564 are each contained within a similar amino acid sequence (LXXLAP, where A is alanine, L is leucine, P is proline, and X is any amino acid). HIF-2α and HIF-3α expression are also regulated by prolyl hydroxylation and VHL binding (20, 49, 50).. Three prolyl ...

A protease is any enzyme that performs proteolysis, that is, begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds that link amino acids together in the polypeptide chain forming the protein. Proteases are used throughout an organism for various metabolic processes. Proteases control a great variety of physiological processes that are critical for life, including the immune response, cell cycle, cell death, wound healing, food digestion, and protein and organelle recycling. On the basis of the type of the key amino acid in the active site of the protease and the mechanism of peptide bond cleavage, proteases can be classified into six groups: cysteine, serine, threonine, glutamic acid, aspartate proteases, as well as matrix metalloproteases. Proteases can not only activate proteins such as cytokines, or inactivate them such as numerous repair proteins during apoptosis, but also expose cryptic sites, such as occurs with β-secretase during amyloid precursor protein processing, shed various
The distinct subcellular redistribution of p53 and p73 in MDM2-expressing cells suggests the existence of structural differences between the proteins. Whereas the oligermerization domain of p53 and p73 share 33% identity, the extreme CT (outside of the oligermerization domain) of the two proteins is much less conserved. Inspection of the primary amino acid sequence reveals that the p53 CT contains five lysine residues that are not conserved in p73. In addition, we showed recently that under conditions where p53 is highly ubiquitinated, p73 exhibits a much lower tendency for ubiquitination (10) . According to the current model of p53 nuclear export, the p53 NES is inactive when p53 is in tetramer. Ubiquitination of the p53 CT lysine residues by MDM2 results in the revealing of the NES that then permits p53 to be nuclear-exported (5, 6, 7) . It is therefore possible that the NES of p73 is unable to be activated because of its lack of the corresponding lysine residues available for ubiquitination. ...
e) The biochemistry of cell metabolism. These approaches will be critically reassessed. I shall explain why none of them has been able to forward a coherent explanation of biological regulation. The General Theory departs from the new physical and mathematical axiomatics and considers the state-of-the-art in biology, biochemistry, genetics, medicine, and pharmacology up to the present day; it is based on the retrospective and prospective evaluation of more than 10 000 pivotal publications. It introduces two fundamentally new concepts which are basic to an understanding of cell metabolism and its regulation:. 1. The soliton triplet. 2. The functional Unit of Energy transLocation,called FUEL.. 1. Soliton triplets represent specific amino acid sequences that are regularly found in proteins. They are of central importance to the kinetic (energetic) behaviour of proteins. In addition, they determine the spatial structure of transmembrane proteins and cytosolic enzymes. The existence of such amino ...
Abstract: Proteomic studies of some human tissues and organs (skeletal muscles, myometrium, motor zone of the brain, prostate), and also cultivated myoblasts revealed 41 of 300 identified proteins, in which the present of certain variants of amino acids (conflicts) was recognized at several positions. Among the 93 registered amino acids conflicts, seven cases represented the results of the protein polymorphisms caused by corresponding substitution of individual amino acid. Moreover, among prostate proteins the proteomic analysis revealed two isoforms of prostate-specific antigen, formed due to alternative splicing. Thus, our results have shown, that proteomic technologies allow to specify effectively the features of primary structures and to characterize various kinds of polymorphism in many human proteins ...
AA Edit 1.2 displays the primary structure of the protein as a sequence of single-character amino acid codes. The sequence can be copied and pasted using the normal keyboard shortcuts. (For example, on Windows, ctrl-c for copy, and ctrl-v for paste.). For proteins which contain "mutable" segments, a new sequence can be pasted into the "AASeq" box. When you click the "change" button, the recipe attempts to mutate each segment to the new value entered.. The recipe does not attempt to change non-mutable segments. It does not change any segments where the current amino acid is the same as the new amino acid. It does not change any segments where the new amino acid code is not one of the 20 amino acids recognized by Foldit.. In puzzles with ligands, the ligand may be represented by one or more segments which return amino acid type "unk" instead of one of the normal codes. The recipe changes "unk" to "x" for display purposes. Since "x" is also not one of the recognized Foldit codes, its ignored when ...
A computer based system and method determines, and displays possible chemical structures for converting two naturally aggregated but chemically separated polypeptide chains into a single polypeptide chain which will fold into a three dimensional structure very similar to the original structure made of the two polypeptide chains. A data base contains a large number of amino acid sequences for which the three dimensional structure is known. After plausible sites have been selected, this data base is examined to find which amino acid sequences (linkers) can bridge the gap between the plausible sites to create a plausible one-polypeptide structure. The testing of each possible linker proceeds in three steps. First, the span (a scaler quantity) of the candidate is compared to the span of the gap. If the span is close enough, step two is done which involves aligning the first peptides of the candidate with the initial peptide of the gap. The three dimensional vector from tail to head of the candidate is

A simple convention is used to write the structure and name of the peptide. The amino acid unit having free -NH2 group is called N-terminal end whereas the amino acid unit with free -COOH group is called C-terminal end. The structure is written with N-terminal end to the left and C-terminal end to the right. The base name of the peptide is taken from the C-terminal amino acid unit. Other amino acid units are taken to be substituents of this acid and the suffix ine of their name is replaced with yl. In case of polypeptides and proteins, the abbreviated names of amino acid units are used. Let us write the structure of a tripeptide formed from glycine, alanine and serine .. ...

Mutations can occur randomly during DNA replication. The chance of a mutation occurring is increased by exposure to certain chemicals and radiations- these are known as mutagens. If a mutation results in cancer, the mutagens responsible are known as carcinogens.. Examples of mutations include addition, deletion and substitution of nucleotide bases. The majority of mutations are not harmful or fatal. Most mutations are neutral, a small number are harmful and a small number give a new characteristic that gives the organism a selective advantage.. If the mutation occurs in a gene, it can alter the amino acid sequence coded. Modifying the amino acid sequence of a polypeptide chain can have various consequences including modifying protein structure. Hydrogen, ionic and disulphide bonds hold the tertiary and quaternary structures of proteins together. Amino acid changes can disrupt these bonds- or even create new bonds. This can transform the structure of a protein. Structural modifications of a ...
Radionuclide molecular imaging is a promising tool for visualization of cancer associated molecular abnormalities in vivo and stratification of patients for specific therapies. ADAPT is a new type of small engineered proteins based on the scaffold of an albumin binding domain of protein G. ADAPTs have been utilized to select and develop high affinity binders to different proteinaceous targets. ADAPT6 binds to human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2) with low nanomolar affinity and can be used for its in vivo visualization. Molecular design of 111In-labeled anti-HER2 ADAPT has been optimized in several earlier studies. In this study, we made a direct comparison of two of the most promising variants, having either a DEAVDANS or a (HE)3DANS sequence at the N-terminus, conjugated with a maleimido derivative of DOTA to a GSSC amino acids sequence at the C-terminus. The variants (designated DOTA-C59-DEAVDANS-ADAPT6-GSSC and DOTA-C61-(HE)3DANS-ADAPT6-GSSC) were stably labeled with 111In for SPECT and ...
A significant number of proteins, especially large proteins, have a structure divided into several independent domains. These domains can often perform specific functions in a protein. For example, a cell membrane receptor might have an extracellular domain to bind a target molecule and an intracellular domain that binds other proteins inside the cell, thereby transducing a signal across the cell membrane.. The domain of a protein is determined by the secondary structure of a protein there are four main types of domain structures: alpha-helix, beta-sheet, beta-turns, and random coil.. The alpha-helix is when the poly-peptide chain forms a helix shape with the amino acids side chains sticking out, usually about 10 amino acids long. The alpha-helix gets its strength by forming internal hydrogen bonds, that occur between amino acid 1 and 4 along the length of the helix. A high concentration of Glycines in a row tend towards the alpha-helix conformation.. The beta-sheet structure is composed of ...
Did you know that in 2007 alone, 33.2 million people lived with AIDS? Of this number, 2.1 million died, including 330,000 children. AIDS is now a pandemic, ravaging sub-Saharan Africa and retarding economic growth. Research has been done in a multitude of labs across the country concerning HIV, its deadly retrovirus. Recent researchers have identified antibodies in the first loop (ECL1) of CCR5 of HIV exposed but uninfected individuals. This means that these antibodies could resist the HIV infection. It would be interesting to analyze and target the specific amino acid residues in this loop to determine which amino acids are involved in antibody binding to CCR5. Studies have been done that showed that amino acid substitutions in positions Alanine-95 and Alanine-96 increased antibody-peptide binding compared to that of the wild-type peptide Aspartate-95 and Phenylalanine-96. ...
Serine proteases represent over a third of all known proteolytic enzymes and are implicit in a wide range of physiological processes including digestion, immunity, blood clotting, fibrinolysis, reproduction and protein folding [1]. The proteolytic mechanism of these proteases involves nucleophilic attack of the carbonyl atom of the substrate peptide bond by a catalytic serine (Ser) residue in the active site of the enzyme. In addition to the nucleophilic Ser residue, this reaction is dependent on two other amino acids in the catalytic site, Histidine (His) and an Aspartate (Asp) that together form what is referred to as the catalytic triad (or a dyad in some cases) [2]. The presence of this catalytic triad in at least four distinct protein folds indicates evolutionary success in four different contexts [3].. The MEROPS classification system (http://merops.sanger.ac.uk/) has grouped proteases into clans that typically have structural homology and/or the same linear order of catalytic triad ...
Base substitution: In this of mutation the single nucleotide base is substituted with another in DNA (/or) RNA molecule Frame shift (deletion or addition): In this method the amino acid sequence at protein translation is attained through deletion (and addition) of nucleotides.

Another variation is where when the number of nucleotides implanted or removed is not a multiple of three. Missense mutation In this type […]. ...
In this work, we have performed an exhaustive bioinformatic analysis of the human genome to try to identify new serine proteases that could contain different catalytic domains within the same polypeptide chain. These bioinformatic searches led us to find a region in chromosome 16p11.2 putatively encoding a new polyprotease. After completing the cloning process using liver cDNA as template, we confirmed that the identified sequence was a new polyserine proteinase that we called polyserase-3 to underline its structural relationship with the previously described polyserases-1 and -2 [3,9]. However, the polyserase-3 architecture is less complex than the exhibited by the two other human polyproteases. Thus, this new polyserase is composed of two serine protease domains preceded by a signal peptide, whereas both polyserase-1 and polyserase-2 contain three catalytic domains in a single polypeptide chain.. A comparative structural analysis also revealed that polyserase-3 is more closely related to ...

In this work the affinity maturation of the murine anti c-myc-peptide antibody 9E10 was analysed. Therefore Fab fragments with reversed mutations directed towards germline genes were genetically produced and characterised for their binding to the human c-myc peptide. The epitope recognized by 9E10 consists of the amino acid sequence EQKLISEEDLLRKR of which the key positions LISEXXL are very selectively recognized. The maturation of 9E10 leads to a 3300-fold higher affinity, which is achieved by a faster association as well as by a slower dissociation of the complex. For the gain in affinity formation of additional contacts to the peptide is less important than conformational and/or flexibility changes of the CDRs which are involved in binding. The exceptionally long CDR-H3 contributes essentially to the affinity maturation. The variable light domain serves thereby with its long CDR-L1 and -L3 as a binding platform for the flexible CDR-H3. Changes in specificity of 9E10 are primarily due to ...

You can figure out how much protein you need if you know how much you weigh. Each day, kids need to eat about 0.5 grams of protein for every pound (0.5 kilograms) they weigh. Thats a gram for every 2 pounds (1 kilogram) you weigh. Your protein needs will grow as you get bigger, but then they will level off when you reach adult size. Adults, for instance, need about 60 grams per day. More about amino acids Proteins are sometimes described as long necklaces with differently shaped beads. Each bead is a small amino acid. These amino acids can join together to make thousands of different proteins. Scientists have found many different amino acids in protein, but 22 of them are very important to human health. Why are proteins important? Proteins are very important for your body so you can grow and be strong. Proteins are large molecules made up of long chains of amino acid subunits. Some of these amino acids are nutritionally essential as they cannot be made or stored within the body and so must come ...

We suggest mixing the two enzyme buffers 1:1 GluC:AspN buffer. The Endo- proteinase GluC would prefer to have the E-E dipeptide present to stimulate activity and Endoproteinase AspN requires Zn, which is present in the AspN buffer. Still use a 1:20 (wt/wt) ratio of enzyme to substrate for each enzyme. There will be some reduction in the cleavage of your substrate protein since the two proteases will be chewing each other. It has been our experience that these conditions work well enough to get a high degree of digestion. You may need to adjust the individual amounts of each enzyme if you are missing a desired fragment, assuming that the reactions will be analyzed by some MS technique. If you prefer to do the reactions sequentially, do the Endoproteinase GluC reaction first as Endoproteinase AspN has difficulty digesting intact pro- teins. All digestions should be performed at 37°C ...
The traditional view has been that a proteins primary (amino acid) sequence determines its fold and therefore its function. It has been assumed, therefore, that any proteins with similar primary sequence will have similar functions and vice versa. The newer view is that this is a bunch of washed up crap. Obviously primary sequence will determine the fold and we still use primary sequence to determine the level of homology between two proteins of unknown structure. However, its not always safe to assume that the resulting percentage is of any true value without functional data ...

With evidence accumulating that ligand-induced receptor conformation plays a pivotal role in signaling, receptors with structural modifications that activate only certain pathways provide a valuable tool for elucidating the mechanisms that account for pluridimensional efficacy. Shenoy and others used evolutionary trace analysis to rationally modify the β2AR amino acid residues at positions 68 (threonine), 132 (tyrosine), and 219 (tyrosine) to generate a mutant receptor known as β2AR TYY (Shenoy et al., 2006). Cellular studies using β2AR TYY demonstrate uncoupling of the receptor from its G protein and subsequently no cAMP production upon stimulation (Shenoy et al., 2006). Remarkably, this genetically engineered receptor maintains the ability to recruit β-arrestin and induce ERK signaling but with modified kinetics compared with the wild-type β2AR. The increase in phosphorylated ERK seems to peak later than that seen upon stimulation of wild-type β2ARs, is absolutely sensitive to siRNA ...

A method for analyzing the protein site similarity was devised aiming at understanding selectivity of homologous proteins and guiding the design of new drugs. The method is based on calculating Cα distances between selected pocket residues and subsequent analysis by multivariate methods. Five closely related serine proteases, the coagulation factors II, VII, IX, X, and XI, were studied and their pocket similarity was illustrated by PCA clustering. OPLS-DA was then applied to identify the residues responsible for the variation. By combining these two multivariate methods, we could successfully cluster the different proteases according to class and identify the important residues responsible for the observed variation.

This chapter begins with a discussion on a cyclic-di-GMP (c-di-GMP), a self-associating messenger molecule. The proteins involved in c-di-GMP formation, recognition, and degradation are drawn primarily from large gene families which have multiple representatives encoded by most bacterial genomes. Degradation of c-di-GMP is mediated by two families of specific PDEs called EAL and HDGYP proteins based on a stereotyped amino acid sequence and these proteins once again have a broad and frequently redundant phylogenetic distribution. motif present in their active sites. The chapter focuses on the EAL proteins that are most abundant and structurally best characterized. The exact separation between the c-di-GMP switch and the N-terminal β-strand of the PilZ domain varies in different family members, as does the conformation of this β-strand in some family members, which enables the switch to effect distinct changes in interdomain interactions in different PilZ domain-containing receptors. Ironically, neither
4F2hc is a type-II glycoprotein that form covalently-bound heterodimers with several described light chains and whose main function is the transport of amino acids. Likewise, the heavy chain interacts with β-integrins mediating integrin-dependent events such as survival, proliferation, migration and even transformation. Its large C-terminal domain resembles α-amylases structure, but lacking catalytic residues and thus enzymatic activity. In fact, this ectodomain contains the N-terminal domain A, a TIM barrel, connected by 6 residues in α-helix to the C-terminal domain C, comprised of a β-sandwich. Spectroscopic/structural characterization of recombinant 4F2hc-ED shows that its structure in solution is quite similar to that of the crystal, being compact and thermally stable. Moreover, this ectodomain is unable to homodimerize by itself, remaining monomeric in solution. According to the data obtained, the folding/unfolding mechanism of 4F2hc-ED may occur following a 4-state model with 2 ...
By making a single substitution in the amino acid sequence of a modern enzyme, scientists at Brookhaven Lab have changed its function into that of a theoretical distant ancestor, providing the first experimental evidence for the common origin of the two distinct enzyme types.
