Effects of limited tryptic proteolysis of bovine neurophysins on molecular properties of hormone binding, self-association, and antigenicity

D M AbercrombieI M Chaiken


Limited tryptic fragmentation of disulfide-intact bovine neurophysins I and II (NP-I and -II, respectively) has been found to cause selective disruption of both hormone binding and neurophysin self-association. Loss of binding interactions, measured as a loss of ability to stimulate retardation of 125I-labeled neurophysin on Met-Tyr-Phe-amino-butylaminoagarose, is complete within 3 h at 37 degrees C. Reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis of tryptic digests of neurophysin I allows detection of two major protein products and the peptide fragment 1-8. Release of the latter N-terminal piece occurs at about the same rate as loss of binding interactions. Reverse-phase HPLC elution behavior before and after performic acid oxidation and amino acid composition of the protein products led to their identification as NP-I-(9-93) (the 9-93 sequence) and [des-19,20]NP-I-(9-93) (the 9-93 sequence with the dipeptide 19-20 missing) for the more rapidly and more slowly formed species, respectively. NP-I-(9-93), unlike intact neurophysin I, is not retarded strongly by either Met-Tyr-Phe-amino-butylaminoagarose or neurophysin II-Sepharose. In contrast, both NP-I-(9-93) and [des-19,20]NP-I-(9-93) are equally as effect...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.

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.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

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.
