Chymotrypsin

Chymotrypsin is a digestive enzyme that cleaves proteins at specific points around the carboxy terminal ends of a large hydrophobic amino acid (like tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine). Chymotrypsin molecules can also ...

chymotrypsin mechanism

what are the correct steps for the mechanism of chymotrypsin? Below is my answer but I don't know if it is right. a) His 57 catalyzes removal of H from Ser 195 hydroxyl. b. Ser 195's nucleophilic O attacks carbonyl C of substrate. c. His 57 donates ...

Digestion of protein

... different specificity (usually hydrolizing after some AA like basic amino acids as Arg and Lys (trypsin) or after hydrophobic amino acids (I think chymotrypsin)) or can differ in the way they do it.

Re: Gluten-free and Vaccines

... for oral vaccination with the use of immunogenic peptide epitopes, as long as they are intrinsically resistant to the action of pepsin, trypsin, chymotrypsin, and elastase. By flanking such epitopes with proteolytically stable high-affinity tTGase substrates [e.g., the sequence PQPQLPYPQPQLP ...
