2011) C-terminal dimerization activates the nociceptive transduction channel transient receptor potential vanilloid 1.
In the present study, the samples were not treated with mercaptoethanol, which could have influenced dimerization and allowed the formation of oxidized polypeptides (homo dimers).
These analysis shows that the myristoylation area and dimerization domain, apparently are not involved with p22-phox interaction (Figs.
As to circumvent the complications associated with the dimerization of V+ and electro deposition of V+ and/ or V, 9: 1(v/v) DMF/H2O mixed solvent has been used, it might become useful for the advance study of applications of non-alkyl group substituted and long alkyl chain substituted viologens and may provide a new avenue to study how these viologens trigger redox cycling reactions.
At least 11 proteins, known as HER ligands, can bind to HER family members to cause dimerization, leading to the activation of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase/protein kinase B (PI3K/AKT) pathway and other signal transduction pathways (Mosesson and Yarden 2004).
Generally on binding with the receptor cytokines induce receptor dimerization and then JAK dimerization.
5] The amino acid-terminal of LG domains encoded by exons 2-4 consist of steroid binding and the part for dimerization, [4] and cation binding.
The researchers soon found that assembly steps could be classified into endless variations of three basic types: dimerization (when one protein doubles to become two), cyclization (when one protein forms a ring of three or more) and subunit addition (when two different proteins bind to each other).
These data support the hypothesis that dimerization of ATP synthase is necessary for PTP formation.
After progesterone binds to the receptor, restructuring with dimerization follows and the complex enters the nucleus and binds to DNA.
Small-molecule dimerization inhibitors of wild-type and mutant HIV protease: A focused library approach.
This study is the first to look at the specific sequences for dimerization of HER2 as a possible anti-cancer target," says the study's senior author, Ruth Lupu, PhD.
The left panel shows a linear dependence on the level of dimerization of [alpha]-amylase as a function of concentration.
Specific topics include the redox isomerization of propargyl alcohols to enones, alkyne metathesis in organic synthesis, the catalytic enantioselective addition of terminal alkynes to carbonyls, the catalytic dimerization of alkynes, and the alkyne zipper reaction in asymmetric synthesis.
