The gills are also scissile, that is, they can be split, and are linear and swollen in the middle.
The signal corresponding to the scissile +1 peptide bond could only be observed for
Invaginations account for 2/3 of small bowel occlusion caused by up to 80% of tumors and the lipoma is the most frequent benign tumor that causes invagination in its submucous polypoid and it is in more or less scissile form.
Then the twist of the scissile bond, together with the bending of − 1 NAG, makes the glycosidic oxygen accessible to the catalytic residue Glu315 for cleavage
We show that incorporation of this highly reactive beta-turn inducing aromatic "Eda" moiety at the scissile P1-P1′ amide bond of a prodomain peptide of human furin led to a potent furin-inhibitor with inhibition constant K
The above furin-Eda-peptide (II) contains a highly reactive β-turn inducing unnatural Eda-amino acid inserted between the scissile
Such specificity effects originating from side-chains distal from the scissile N-terminal peptide bond are, to our knowledge and up to date, unique to this aminopeptidase and have only been partially observed before as differential substrate specificity depending on the C-terminus of an unrelated series of peptides
(a) Schematic representation of linear (10) and branched (11) constructs with the scissile +1 peptide bond site-specifically labeled with
13C and 15N isotopes at both the scissile +1 amide bond (labeled b) and the amide connecting Phe194 and Val195 (labeled a).
