Pathogenic variants in the glycyl tRNA synthetase (GARS) gene have been described in association with a specific form of an autosomal dominant motor axonal neuropathy that preferentially involves the upper limbs known as distal hereditary motor neuropathy V (dHMN-V) or spinal muscular atrophy type Va (dSMA-Va).
For site-specific radiolabeling, a glycyl cysteine was introduced into the C-terminal of the HIF-1[alpha]547-574 scaffold, yielding a peptide named OP30.
indiensis LPDs FAD- and NAD(P)-binding Rossmann folds amino acid sequence motif [GX.sub.1-2]GXXG together with either GXXXG or GXXXA motifs where the first glycyl residue of these motifs and the third glycyl residue of the [GX.sub.1-2]GXXG motif are the same [22].
(All these were originally reported by Dmitri Borgmann [2].) The Dvorak keyboard has nothing so long on the top row; the best we can manage is the 6-character GLYCYL. However, with access to the five primary vowels, Dvorak easily bests QWERTY on the middle row with the 19-letter INSTANTANEOUSNESSES.
Serum gamma glutamyl transpeptidase level was estimated by measuring the releasing p-nitroaniline from gamma glutamyl p-nitroaniline in the presence of an acceptor (glycyl glycine) (Tate and Meister, 1974).
3.4.11 or 3.4.13, leucyl glycyl glycine as substrate), mannose phosphate isomerase (MPI; E.C.
The hepta-FaRP analog with the glycyl residue occurs only in snails of the subclass Basommatophora (like M.
This fragment encodes, between the primers, three copies of the peptide: Lys-Arg-Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-Gly-Arg, where the basic residues at the C- and N-terminals are cleavage sites, and the glycyl residue is the amidation site.
This peptide was collected and submitted to Edman degradation, which yielded a sequence corresponding to peptide L7 with an asparagyl residue in place of a glycyl residue at position 3.
