More specifically, the PeptideMass tool was used to calculate the theoretical masses of peptides generated by the chemical or enzymatic cleavage of human ITIH4 protein and to predict the putative cleavage sites with different enzymes or reagents; the ProtParam tool was used to compute the amino acid composition and instability indexes of generated peptides.
Besides the multibasic cleavage site, the virus had typical avian consensus amino acid residues in the HA protein at positions involved in preferential receptor binding to avian sialic acid receptors (amino acids Q226 and G228 by H3 numbering).
Different proBNP-derived peptides containing in their sequence the cleavage site ([Arg.
To perform comparative analysis of the S1/S2 cleavage site between FECVs and FIPVs, we identified cases of FIP that were confirmed postmortem by using immunohistochemistry, the standard for FIP diagnosis; archival immunohistochemistry-positive formalin-fixed tissues were used as the source of FIPV RNA.
To complement its drug target validation programs, Innovir has developed FRS (Functional Ribozyme Selection) for identifying the optimal cleavage sites in bacterial cells.
Potential cleavage sites within P1 are predicted after [Q.
Additionally, the HA cleavage site in the new isolates is PQRERRRKRG, which is identical to that of clade 2.
In humans, it is divided into two regions after a cleavage site in positions 73-76 (Arg-Ala-Pro-Arg).
The slpA precursor encoded by this gene contained a signal peptide, and its cleavage site was located between aa 24 and aa 25.
9-Da marker peptide appeared in the Hb variant [[beta]66 Lys[right arrow]Asn] only, but not in wild-type Hb, and was confirmed to be an amino acid substitution by elimination of the tryptic cleavage site at Lys([beta]66) and by the characteristic mass increase of 114 Da, which indicated the addition of an asparaginyl residue to this position.
