Carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance studies of the selectively isotope-labeled reactive site peptide bond of the basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor in the complexes with trypsin, trypsinogen, and anhydrotrypsin

R RicharzK Wüthrich


A previously characterized modification of the basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor (BPTI), with the carbonyl carbon atom of Lys-15 selectively enriched in 13C, the peptide bond Arg-39--Ala-40 cleaved, and Arg-39 removed, was used for 13C NMR studies of the reactive site peptide bond Lys-15--Ala-16 in the complexes with trypsin, trypsinogen, and anhydrotrypsin. The chemical shift of [1-13C]Lys-15 was 175.7 ppm in the free inhibitor, 176.4 ppm in the complexes with trypsin and anhydrotrypsin and the ternary complex with trypsinogen and H-Ile-Val-OH, and 175.7 ppm in a neutral solution containing the inhibitor and trypsinogen. These data show that the trypsin--BPTI complex does not contain a covalent tetrahedral carbon atom in the position of the reactive site peptide carbonyl of the inhibitor. They would be consistent with the formation of a noncovalent complex but cannot at present be used to further characterize the degree of a possible pyramidalization of the carbonyl carbon of Lys-15 in such a complex. The identical chemical shifts in the complexes with trypsin and anhydrotrypsin indicate that the gamma-hydroxyl group of Ser-195 of trypsin does not have an important role in the binding of the inhibitor.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
