Re: How can a protein without a G-site bind to GSH?

Hello Mr JackBean yes i only got 1 band and the score for that 3% sequence is 100% of an acyl carrier protein lpxA-like motive. my suspicion is this animal utilises an analog of GSH. Thank you very much.

How much ATP a person consumes...?

... sure that we need to include the dietary fats (or he is just trying to trick us). I have these notes from his lecture: - The R-chain in fatty acyl CoA has 16-20 carbons - Carbons from fatty acids go to citric acid cycle - 8 fatty acid cycles per 2 citric acid cycles (this is for 16 carbons, ...

Dumb question about proteins.

... in nucleic acids, in free nucleotides up to three, recall ATP etc.) residue is in common some sort of remainder of some molecule, you could have acyl residue derived from carboxylic acid. In amino acids/proteins it refers to the side chain coming from alpha carbon, defining each particular amino ...

Proteolysis of protease

first the acyl bond with one fatty acid is hydrolyzed, yeilding diacylglycerol. then a second bond is hydrolyzed, yielding monoacylglycerol. then the third one, and you are left with glycerol and 3 free fatty acid molecules
