The restaurant is dedicated to the concept of umami, the savory, meaty "fifth taste" that may be technically defined as the carboxylate anion of glutamic acid, which is to say the dash of soy sauce in your stir-fry or the catsup you like with your fries.
Phagocytosis of the RTHDF fibroblasts was studied using carboxylate-modified polystyrene fluorescent latex beads with a diameter of 1.0 µm (Sigma-Aldrich) as described by Ganassin et al. .
In the alpha amino acids, the amino and carboxylate groups are attached to the same carbon atom, which is called the αcarbon.
It is thus possible that the carboxylate of D763 could also make specific, productive interactions with α − 1,3 linked mannoside (O2) compared to an α − 1,6 linked substrate and that binding of the latter is hindered both by a tighter "collar" and the location of W764, but such speculation requires the analysis of complexes of the Streptococcal enzyme.
Galperin MY, Koonin EV (1997) A diverse superfamily of enzymes with ATP-dependent carboxylate-amine / thiol ligase activity.
The protein family including E. coli RimK encompasses a number of proteins with ATP-dependent carboxylate-amine ligase activity, where acylphosphate intermediates are involved in the catalytic mechanism
Consistent with a structural impact of the four alanine replacements, the mutant ATPase activity showed enhanced inhibition by dicyclohexylcarbodiimide, which blocks the helix-2 carboxylate.
The key carboxylate is in the second motif, which is
SUPERCLEAN Supercritical CO2 quadrupled the internal surface area of as-synthesized IRMOF-16 (shown), a zinc carboxylate framework, by scrubbing out its pore structure.
The researchers observed up to a 12-fold increase in the internal surface area of the zinc carboxylate MOFs they tested compared with the same MOFs treated by standard activation methods.
