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) ...
Deciphering the synergism of endogenous glycoside hydrolase families 1 and 9 from Coptotermes gestroi
(Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2013-10-01) [Artigo]
Termites can degrade up to 90% of the lignocellulose they ingest using a repertoire of endogenous and symbiotic degrading enzymes. Termites have been shown to secrete two main glycoside hydrolases, which are GH1 (EC 22.214.171.124) ...
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 ...
Hyperalgesic and edematogenic effects of Secapin-2, a peptide isolated from Africanized honeybee (Apis mellifera) venom
(Peptides, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
Honeybee stings are a severe public health problem. Bee venom contains a series of active components, including enzymes, peptides, and biogenic amines. The local reactions observed after envenoming include a typical ...
Investigating the effect of different positioning of lysine residues along the peptide chain of mastoparans for their secondary structures and biological activities
(Amino Acids, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
In order to investigate the effect of the different positions of the positive charges generated by the ionization of the side-chain of lysine residues, on the structure-activity relationship of the mastoparans, the peptides ...
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 ...
Ser e tornar-se professor: práticas educativas no contexto escolar
(Coleção PROGRAD (UNESP), 2012) [Livro]
PE and PS lipids synergistically enhance membrane poration by a peptide with anticancer properties
(Biophysical Journal, 2015-09-01) [Artigo]
Polybia-MP1 (MP1) is a bioactive host-defense peptide with known anticancer properties. Its activity is attributed to excess serine (phosphatidylserine (PS)) on the outer leaflet of cancer cells. Recently, higher quantities ...
