Ephedra trifurca had defense proteins, including a chitinase
and an alpha amylase inhibitor, peroxidase and endoglucanases, as well as a carbohydrate-modifying enzymes, e.
Genetic variation in the promoter region of chitinase
3-like 1 is associated with atopy.
Therefore, measurable chitinase
activity would likely be from enzymes in the digestive tract.
Molecular characterization of the gene for human cartilage gp-39 (CHI3L1), a member of the chitinase
protein family and marker for late stages of macrophage differentiation.
They found that the chitinase
A genes in the evening primrose species that reproduce sexually were different in four places from the ancestral gene, while the genes in the asexual species had not changed.
8) Because chitin is not present in humans, chitinase
activity had not been thought to occur in humans.
For instance, IL-13 mice macrophages have high expression of the chitinase
family members YM1/2, AMCase, BRP39, and chitotriosidase (the former 2 both highly [T.
An enzyme assay was also conducted for chitinase
and protease activity for all the seventeen isolates.
2008), have protease, chitinase
and [beta]-keratinase activities (Brar et al.
is the biological response to chitin, the second most widespread bio-polymer in nature.
It has been shown that grape uncharacterized protein and chitinase
sites considered as oligopeptides were plant oligopeptide structure homologs possessing different functions.
Immunocytochemical localization of [beta]-1,3-glucanase and chitinase
in Fusarium culmoruminfected wheat spikes.
