lan·thi·o·nine

(lan-thī'ō-nēn),
3,3'-Thiodialanine; an amino acid obtained from wood that resembles cystine but has only one sulfur atom in the molecule rather than two, that is, a sulfide rather than a disulfide.

The exact phenomenon by which processing adversely affects the cysteine is not clear (Wang and Parsons, 1998) but might be due to lysinoalanine or lanthionine formation (Robbins et al.

But Yin Hessefort, Lubrizol Advanced Materials, pointed out that a typical hair relaxer treatment can cause a 50% reduction in tensile strength because it changes about one third of disulfide bonds to lanthionine bonds.
The presentation of sophisticated, diverse, and interesting research projects (such as "Molecular Determination of Factors Mediating Lanthionine Ketimine Ester Function at Nematodes Synapses," "An Investigation of Ultraviolet Communication in the Kangaroo Rat," and "Exploring Relationships Between Consumer Ethnocentrism, Patriotism, Global Openness and Country of Origin Effect"), goes hand-in-hand with enhanced critical thinking, problem-solving, and discipline-related technical skills, as well as an improved ability to translate classroom knowledge into practice (Oklahoma Research Day 2011).
By using molecular modeling approaches we were able to identify a potential binding site for abscisic acid on the lanthionine synthetase C-like 2 protein, a protein required for the beneficial health effects of abscisic acid.

Under the collaboration, Oragenics will utilize Intrexon's advanced transgene and cell engineering platforms for the development and production of lantibiotics, a class of peptide antibiotics that naturally are produced in Gram-positive bacteria and contain the characteristic polycyclic thioether amino acids lanthionine and methyllanthonine.
The breakage of disulfide bonds with OH- ions follows the [beta]-elimination reaction with the formation of crosslinks involving dehydroalanine and lanthionine.
It is thought that a percentage of hair's natural disulfide bonds are converted to lanthionine linkages during relaxing, thereby reducing the hair's tensile strength.
