Isolation and several properties of Streptomyces griseus carboxypeptidase

A S TsyperovichT F Kastrikina


Enzymatic and physico-chemical properties of homogenous preparation of carboxypeptidase from Streptomyces griseus are studied. pH-Optimum is found to be 7.9 and 8.2 under the hydrolysis of cbs-Gly-Leu and hyppuryl-arg respectively, temperature optimum --60 degrees C. The enzyme splits more efficiently basic amino acids and leucine from N-terminal-protected dipeptides. Str. griseus carboxypeptidase is activated by reducting agents (NaCN, cisteine, ascorbic acid), it is inhibited by KMnO4 and it does not belong to "serine" type enzymes. SH-groups are essential for the enzyme activity. No significant effect of metal ions on the enzyme activity is observed. The inhibitory effect of EDTA developed only after the prolonged treatment. The enzyme has one N-terminal group (alanine), which evidences the presence of one polypeptide chain in the enzyme molecule.

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