Stepwise-cleavage process of promastoparans to reach maturity was investigated theoretically by combining ab initio folding and unbounded docking. The comparison between the structures of the promastoparans both before and after docking were examined along with the hydrogen bonding interaction pattern between the dipetidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) and promastoparans to reveal how the endpoint of this stepwise cleavage is recognized among these promastoparans with highly resemble amino acid sequences. The current approach of folding and docking study provides structural insight on the stepwise cleavage process.

    The Polar flagella (Pof) of Vibrio alginolyticus are surrounded by a membrane structure called a sheath. Five major proteins, whose molecular masses are 60, 47, 45, 44, and 18 kDa (named PF60, PF47, PF45, PF44, and PF18, respectively), have been detected in polar flagella. PF47 and PF45 have...

    Tripeptidyl peptidase I (TTP-I), also known as CLN2, a member of the family of serine-carboxyl proteinases (S53), plays a crucial role in lysosomal protein degradation and a deficiency in this enzyme leads to fatal neurodegenerative disease. Recombinant human TPP-I and its mutants were analyzed...

    Background: Co-lethality, or synthetic lethality is the documented genetic situation where two, separately non-lethal mutations, become lethal when combined in one genome. Each mutation is called a "synthetic lethal" (SL) or a colethal. Like invariant positions, SL sets (SL linked couples) are...
