Download Protein Arginylation: Methods and Protocols by Anna S. Kashina PDF

By Anna S. Kashina

This quantity provides a accomplished review of all of the current tools on analysing protein arginylation, from the early equipment using crude protein arrangements and whole-cell assays to the newest complicated tools concerning recombinant protein innovations, antibodies, excessive precision mass spectrometry, and chemical probes. This e-book additionally contains essays from the founders of the sector, who initially came upon arginylation within the early Nineteen Sixties and taken it to overseas attractiveness. Written within the hugely winning Methods in Molecular Biology series layout, chapters contain introductions to their respective subject matters, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, simply reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips about troubleshooting and heading off identified pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Protein Arginylation:Methods and Protocols may curiosity the rising physique of scientists fascinated by the stories of posttranslational arginylation and the swiftly turning out to be group of researchers engaged on a vast diversity of posttranslational ameliorations, the research of which frequently meets comparable demanding situations and makes use of related ideas as posttranslational arginylation.

Desheath the nerve using fine forceps and mince with a razor blade. 4. 25 M sucrose and 6 mM 2-mercaptoethanol, in a 10 ml all-glass Ten Broeck homogenizer (see Note 5). 5. 25 M sucrose and 6 mM 2-mercaptoethanol. 6. Transfer the homogenate to a high-speed polypropylene centrifuge tube. 7. Centrifuge at 150,000 × g for 60 min at 4 °C. 5 × 300 mm; Pharmacia). The goal of this procedure is to collect fractions containing high molecular weight protein/nucleic acid complexes while removing molecules of <5 kDa (see Note 6).

The molecules that accepted leucine or phenylalanine in the albumin preparation were thus a small fraction that contained NH2-terminal arginine. This was the first indication that acceptor specificity of leucyltransferase might depend on a basic NH2terminal residue. That lysine and, to a smaller extent, histidine could also function in this role was subsequently established with defined peptides [12]. Since it was clear that we were dealing with an enzyme, and since we had a relatively simple assay for its activity, it seemed feasible to find a mutant lacking the enzyme which might prove useful in determining its physiological role(s).

35 μmol of β-mercaptoethanol. 5 μmol KCI. 36 μmol of ATP (potassium salt). 72 μmol of phosphoenolpyruvate (sodium salt). 006 mg of pyruvate kinase. 0 μCi 3H-arginine (specific activity: 22–27 Ci/mM). ● 30 μg tRNA. ● 30 μg of acceptor protein (chromatin fraction or α-lactalbumin). 2. Incubate the mixture at 37 °C. 3. To obtain a time course of Arg incorporation, take aliquots (20 μl) from the incubation mixture at various time intervals and measure for incorporated radioactivity using scintillation counter by the filter disk method [26].
