Examples

  • These crystals were analyzed and it was reported that within each secretin molecule there existed 3 lysines, 2 arginines, 2 prolines, i histi-dine, i glutamic acid, i aspartic acid, and i methionine.

    The Human Brain

  • These pathogenic bacteria, when they get into the body, give rise at once to a group of bodies which have been named lysines.

    The Story of Germ Life

  • The researchers also found a trio of lysines on histone H4, whose acetylation enables efficient compaction of chromosomal DNA into mature spores.

  • These results suggest that FOXL2 is more likely modified at a major FOXL2 sumoylation site with a poly-SUMO-1 chain rather than being mono-sumoylated at 4 different lysines.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Alignment of the peptide sequences indicated frequent presence of arginines and lysines, suggesting the importance of these basic residues.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • These lysines have been shown to form part of an interaction site with coatomer protein I (COP-I) [10], [13], [14].

  • The same lysines are also targets of MDM2-mediated ubiquitination. p53 ubiquitination occurs primarily in unstressed cells, but decreases dramatically after stress.

  • Subsequently, the lysines can be methylated up to three times per lysine, each time locking in gene shutdown.

    GEN News Highlights

  • The most frequently acylated residues within proteins are lysines (as in histone N-acetylation) and cysteines (as in protein S-palmitoylation); serines seem to be seldom acylated.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • RGRP insert their side chains into the minor groove of DNA and thus contribute directly to DNA binding, while lysines flanking the AT-hook core contribute to DNA binding by neutralizing negative charges of the DNA backbone
