Examples

  • When Vincent du Vigneaud synthesized a peptide hormone, oxytocin, which is a nonapeptide, for the first time, this represented a great step forward which was rewarded with the Nobel prize for 1955.

  • We tested whether OppA MTB transports the nonapeptide bradykinin (RPPGFSPFR).

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • We present evidence that OppA binds to a wide range of peptides in terms of their size, ranging from the nonapeptide bradykinin to the tripeptide

  • GSH/mg protein, suggesting that the tripeptide is preferred over the bulkier nonapeptide bradykinin.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • We observe that OppA is capable of binding both the tripeptide glutathione and the nonapeptide bradykinin.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • The L. lactis OppA has been reported to transport peptides from 4 upto 18 residues, including the nonapeptide bradykinin, reflecting its versatility

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • OppAMTB was capable of binding the tripeptide glutathione and the nonapeptide bradykinin, indicative of a somewhat broad substrate specificity.

  • The gene for the nonapeptide vasopressin (AVP) fulfills all these requirements.
