Based on this empirical rule, we hypothesized that if a family of secreted peptides in Arabidopsis shares a conserved domain near the C-terminus by in silico analysis and the conserved domain is indeed confirmed to be a part of the secreted mature peptide after post-translational modification by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS)-based structural analysis (described in section 2.
Due to lack of coiled-coil and C-terminus domains, the GFP-tagged short isoform of NuMA was mainly localized at the cytoplasmic region during the whole cell cycle [Figure 1]b.
We describe herein the binding of the PDZ domain of nNOS towards the C-terminus of a novel interaction partner: Claudin-3, a tight junction protein.
For in vitro transcription, full-length and truncated Egr3 construct containing Xpress tag at the N-terminus and DsRed2 at the C-terminus were amplified by PCR and cloned into BamHI and HindIII site of pRSET-A vector (Invitrogen, USA).
Multiple sequence alignment of 13 different thiol-activated cytolysins was retrieved and showed that N-terminus regions of these proteins are markedly variable whereas the C-terminus region showed higher homology Fig.
This SS cDNA encodes a protein with 114 amino acids that contains the SS14 sequence at its C-terminus.
It appears that NT-proBNP is glycosylated in the central region (amino acid residues 28 -56), while the C-terminus region of the molecule (amino acid residues 61-76) is not post-translationally modified (19).
The C-terminus is coded by exon 9 of CALR, which includes an ER retention signal.
Mutations that shortened the length of CCND2 were clustered around one end of the protein, the C-terminus, and resulted in stabilization of cyclin D2 and cell cycle activation, said Zhang, chair of the St.
This desensitization is either mediated by phosphorylation of Ser345/346 and Ser261/262 by PKA (heterologous desensitization) or by phosphorylation of certain serines, especially Ser355/356 in the C-terminus of [[beta].
A poly-histidine tag is an amino acid motif in proteins that consists of multiple histidine (His) residues, mostly located at the N- or C-terminus of the protein.
all the lysines in the C-terminus of MHC II were replaced with arginine), produced a reduced number of T regs [55].
