Complete tyrosine assignments in the high-field 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum of bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor selectively reduced and carboxamidomethylated at cystine 14-38

G H SnyderB D Sykes


The low-field portions of the 250-MHz 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of native and chemically modified basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor have been studied as a function of pH over the range pH 5-13. In derivatives selectively reduced and carboxamidomethylated at cystine 14-38, resonances associated with 15 of the 16 protons of the aromatic rings of the four tyrosines of the inhibitor have been located and assigned to specific tyrosyl residues. Titrations of pH yielded pK's for tyrosines 10, 21, 23, and 35 in the modified inhibitor of 9.9, 10.6, 11.6, and 11.0, respectively. Resonances associated with the three nitrotyrosine 10 protons of the mononitrated derivative and the six nitrotyrosine 10 and 21 protons of the dinitrated derivative have been similarly located, assigned, and titrated, yielding pK's for nitrotyrosines 10 and 21 of 6.5 and 6.4, respectively. Previously reported results for derivatives with cystine 14-38 intact have been revised on the basis of new data. Comparison of these revised results with the new data for derivatives with modified cystine 14-38 reveals no changes in pK's for any tyrosine or nitrotyrosing ring and no changes in chemical shift for resonances of nitrotyrosine 21 or tyrosines 21 and ...Continue Reading

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
