To prove the theory, Watanabe and his team recreated the formation of peptide bonds
in vitro by using a type of ribosomal RNA they created from E.
All peptide bonds
in short peptides would be available for immediate interaction with copper, as none of the peptide bonds
will be buried within a globular structure; no denaturation would be required before interaction with copper.
Hydrolysis is a chemical process where an enzyme is used to break the peptide bonds
of a protein, resulting in smaller molecular derivatives called polypeptides and peptides.
Homocysteine thiolactone, a bioactive form of Hcy, has an intramolecular ester component that is likely to bind to proteins by a peptide bond
under physiologic conditions (7-9).
In addition, the guidelines suggest that these calculations should only include proteins that, by definition, consist of a chain of amino acids connected by peptide bonds
Proteases share a principal functionality, the lysis of peptide bonds
, but their biological roles differ greatly.
These synthetic compounds contain two or more amino acids connected by peptide bonds
Proteins consist of one or more polypeptides - chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds
Minor groove binders are long, flat molecules composed of several similar subunits that are held together by peptide bonds
that can adopt a "crescent" shape.
3) The degree of hydrolysis (DH) is the number of peptide bonds
broken upon hydrolysis as % of the total number of peptide bonds
present in the intact protein.
A peptide is a short polymeric compound based on a-amino acids connected by peptide bonds
