Protonectin (1-6): A novel chemotactic peptide from the venom of the social wasp Agelaia pallipes pallipes
(Toxicon, 2010-11-01) [Artigo]
Peptides constitute the largest group of Hymenoptera venom toxins; some of them interact with GPCR, being involved with the activation of different types of leukocytes, smooth muscle contraction and neurotoxicity. Most of ...
Formation of a ternary complex for selenocysteine biosynthesis in bacteria
(The Journal Of Biological Chemistry, 2015-09-16) [Artigo]
The synthesis of selenocysteine-containing proteins (selenoproteins) involves the interaction of Selenocysteine Synthase (SelA), tRNA (tRNASec), Selenophosphate Synthetase (SelD, SPS), a specific elongation factor (SelB) ...
Effect of the aspartic acid D2 on the affinity of Polybia-MP1 to anionic lipid vesicles
(European Biophysics Journal With Biophysics Letters, 2014-05-01) [Artigo]
Polybia-MP1 (IDWKKLLDAAKQIL-NH2), a helical peptide extracted from the venom of a Brazilian wasp, has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activities without being hemolytic or cytotoxic. This peptide has also displayed anticancer ...
