Patricia Alvarez-Sieiro et al.
Applied microbiology and biotechnology, 98(15), 6689-6700 (2014-04-23)
Prolyl endopeptidases (PEP) (EC, a family of serine proteases with the ability to hydrolyze the peptide bond on the carboxyl side of an internal proline residue, are able to degrade immunotoxic peptides responsible for celiac disease (CD), such as
Paul J Lijnen et al.
Journal of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system : JRAAS, 6(2), 69-77 (2006-02-14)
To determine whether the aminopeptidase B inhibitor, arphamenine A, could affect collagen production and expression in control and TGF-ss1-treated cardiac fibroblasts. Cardiac fibroblasts from passage 2 from normal male adult rats were cultured to confluency and incubated with and without
Margarita Marinova et al.
Protein and peptide letters, 16(2), 207-212 (2009-02-10)
Chick-pea (Cicer arietinum L.) cotyledons are unique source of aminopeptidase - 8-9 U/g cotyledons was observed using L-leucine-p-nitroanilide as substrate. The aminopeptidase was purified (65 kDa, pI 4.8 ) reaching a specific activity of 220 U/mg at pH 7.0-7.2 and
Hongyu Yang et al.
World journal of microbiology & biotechnology, 32(11), 176-176 (2016-09-16)
Prolyl aminopeptidases are specific exopeptidases that catalyze the hydrolysis of the N-terminus proline residue of peptides and proteins. In the present study, the prolyl aminopeptidase gene (pap) from Aspergillus oryzae JN-412 was optimized through the codon usage of Pichia pastoris.
Guoli Huang et al.
Natural product research, 29(17), 1650-1656 (2015-01-07)
Human neutrophil elastase (HNE) has been implicated as a major contributor in the pathogenesis of diseases, such as lung disorders and other inflammatory diseases. A series of 12 new nigranoic acid esters were regioselectively synthesised in good yields and evaluated
Yoke-Ming Wong et al.
Biomacromolecules, 17(10), 3375-3385 (2016-09-20)
Amyloid fibers are classified as a new generation of tunable bionanomaterials that exhibit new functions related to their distinctive characteristics, such as their universality, tunability, and stiffness. Here, we introduce the catalytic residues of serine protease into a peptide catalyst
Cathal S Mahon et al.
Microbiology (Reading, England), 155(Pt 11), 3673-3682 (2009-06-27)
Fungi are capable of degrading proteins in their environment by secreting peptidases. However, the link between extracellular digestion and intracellular proteolysis has scarcely been investigated. Mycelial lysates of the filamentous fungus Talaromyces emersonii were screened for intracellular peptidase production. Five
Kazuyuki Hiwatashi et al.
Bioscience, biotechnology, and biochemistry, 68(6), 1395-1397 (2004-06-25)
We have found a novel prolyl aminopeptidase in Grifola frondosa. The enzyme was purified by DEAE-Sepharose CL-6B, Butyl-Toyopearl, Sephacryl S-100, and Mono-Q column chromatographies. The purified enzyme exists as a dimer and gives high activity toward L-proline-p-nitroanilide. The enzyme was

Zeitschrift fur Naturforschung. C, Journal of biosciences, 63(1-2), 105-112 (2008-04-05)
Aminopeptidase, preferring phenylalanine-p-nitroanilide as substrate, and proline iminopeptidase, highly-specific for proline-p-nitroanilide, were isolated from cabbage leaves (Brassica oleraceae var. capitata). As pH optima, 7.2-7.5 for aminopeptidase activity and 8.0-8.5 for proline iminopeptidase were determined. Both peptidases were strongly inhibited by
Venkat N Are et al.
Biochimica et biophysica acta, 1865(2), 153-164 (2016-11-07)
Xaa-Pro dipeptidase (XPD) catalyzes hydrolysis of iminopeptide bond in dipeptides containing trans-proline as a second residue. XPDs are found in all living organisms and are believed to play an essential role in proline metabolism. Here, we report crystal structures and
