The CO genes encode proteins with two highly conserved regions: two B-box domains at the amino terminus and a CCT (CO, CO-like, and TOC1) domain near the carboxy terminus.
Like all NMDAR subunits, G1uN2A and GluN2B subunits consist of three basic parts: an extracellular amino region, a series of four transmembrane (TM) segments with connecting extracellular and intracellular loops, and an intracellular carboxy terminus (Fig.
We identified 2 monoclonal antibodies that reacted with amino terminus (26A1) and carboxy terminus (48A1) of EL among 15 clones.
Large Scale Biology Corporation (Vacaville, CA) has patented galactosidase truncated at the carboxy terminus and the production of enzymatically active recombinant human and animal lysosomal enzymes involving construction and expression of recombinant expression constructs comprising coding sequences of human or animal lysosomal enzymes in a plant expression system.
The membrane M protein carboxy terminus binds to transmissible gastroenteritis coronavirus core and contributes to core stability.
This antibody was raised against an epitope mapping the carboxy terminus of ERK-2-encoded MAP kinase p42 of rat origin.
ERK-2 was directed against an epitope mapping at the carboxy terminus of ERK-2-encoded MAP kinase p42 of rat origin.
The amidation of the carboxy terminus has been reported to protect against carboxypeptidases (26), and exoprotease resistance was characteristic to designated "second-generation" reporter peptides (Table 1).
We have seen only certain desmoplakin sequences near its carboxy terminus, which you have predicted project far into the cytoplasm.
Another region, residues 84-94, was identified as a proteoglycan-binding domain in apoB-48, and there is evidence to suggest that this region in apoB-100 is "masked" by the carboxy terminus and hence unavailable to bind vessel wall proteoglycans (12).
The MAP2 antibody, clone AP20, has only recently been mapped to a carboxy terminus encompassing amino acids 997-1332 (L.
After immunization of guinea pigs with insulin lispro and screening of sera for antibodies with increased affinity and selectivity for insulin lispro vs native human insulin, we prepared a monospecific polyclonal antiserum by a novel immunoadsorption strategy using despentapeptide insulin (DPI) (4) an analog of human insulin lacking the five terminal amino acids at the carboxy terminus of the B chain.
