The antimicrobial activity of disulfide and linear LEAP-2 was analyzed by the student's t-test using IBM SPSS Statistics 23 software.
When the high body temperature group was compared to the group without a high body temperature, the NLR and thiol/disulfide homeostasis parameters; disulfide, disulfide/native thiol, and disulfide/total thiol average values were found to be significantly high (respectively, p <0.001, 0.001, and 0.001), and native thiol/total thiol average values were found to be significantly low (respectively p=0.017 and <0.001) in the group with a high temperature.
With this new method, TDB tests including native thiol (SH), disulfide (SS) and total thiol (SH + SS) levels can be quantified simultaneously.
Disulfide concentrations were calculated as the half of the difference between levels of the total thiol and native thiol.
TG2 is now also the first protein known to have a reversible disulfide bond on/off switch of this type.
These blood samples were sent to the Medical Biochemistry Laboratory of Ankara Yildirim Beyazit University under appropriate conditions in dry ice for the study of thiol and disulfide levels without denaturation.
As a member of the disulfide reductase family, TGR is a NADPH-dependent homodimeric flavoenzyme with a dithiol/disulfide redox center located at the si face of the FAD prosthetic group [2].
Selenocysteine has a structure and chemical properties very similar to cysteine, however diselenide bonds are stable under the same conditions where disulfide bonds are not, leading to a much longer half-life of the therapeutic protein.
