However, this variant affected splice acceptor site directly, thus it might interrupt the recognition of spliceosomes and result in incorrect splicing.
680], nevertheless the acceptor site of the D1-protein can be damaged (BLUBAUGH et al.
The DCMU causes a limitation to the acceptor site of the electron transfer in PSII, preventing reoxidation of [Q.
1124 + 41 was activated in the mutant construct, and the normal intron 9 acceptor site was used.
The resulting cations are best described as 1:1 adducts of a neutral ligand on a phosphadiazonium Lewis acceptor (1), and highlight the potential for electron-rich centres to behave as Lewis acids in spite of the presence of a lone pair of electrons at the acceptor site.
Ionic attachment will only be achieved if an |appropriate' acceptor site exists on the particle surface.
The third was a adenine-to-cytosine transversion at position -2 of the splice acceptor site in intron 19 (g.
Botulinum toxin type A is known to block neuromuscular transmission by binding to acceptor sites on motor or sympathetic nerve terminals, entering the nerve terminals and inhibiting the release of acetylcholine.
We estimated H-bond interaction energies of the putative donor and acceptor sites on the natural AR ligand, DHT, and selected nonsteroidal analogues using the PM3 method to compute the energies of interaction with a single water molecule at each site; PM3 fully optimized conformations of the water-bound species were computed for this purpose.
Dalfopristin is an olefinic macrolactone that binds to the 50S subunit of the prokaryotic ribosome and interferes with the function of peptidyl transferase, thereby inactivating the donor and acceptor sites of the ribosome.
