Abstract

gamma-Glutamylamine cyclotransferase, an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-gamma-glutamylamines to free amines and 5-oxo-L-proline, was found in rabbit kidney and in various other tissues. The specificity of this enzyme indicates that it functions in the metabolism of products of transglutaminase action; among its substrates are epsilon-(L-gamma-glutamyl)-L-lysine, a derivative of this peptide in which the alpha-amino and carboxyl groups of the lysine moiety are blocked, and L-gamma-glutamyl-polyamine derivatives.

COVID-19

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.
