Kinase ii

Kinase ii --> peptidyl-dipeptidase a

(Science: enzyme) a hydrolase cleaving C-terminal dipeptides from a variety of substrates, including angiotensin i, which is converted to angiotensin ii and histidylleucine.

An important step in the metabolism of certain vasopressor agents.

It is a chloride-dependent, zinc glycoprotein that is generally membrane-bound and active at neutral ph. Only single dipeptides are released from angiotensin i and bradykinin because of the lack of activity on bonds involving proline. It may also have endopeptidase activity on some substrates.

registry number: EC 3.4.15.1

Synonym: carboxycathepsin, dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase, kinase ii, peptidase P.

Cell signalling inhibitors

... for me some cell signalling inhibitors for C. elegans (or generic) and tell me the enzyme or receptor that is inhibited? (Preferably for tyrosine kinase, G-protein, JAK/STAT and Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase) Thanks :D

Re:

... another textbook and you were right! Unlike what I first thought, glycolysis can't take place once glycogenolysis has started because the pyruvate kinase is inhibited by glucagon and adrenaline, so PEP can't turn into pyruvate anymore. Which is only adding to my confusion...

Re:

... which quickly is not the case anymore as soon as physical activity starts, right? And it is also activated by calcium (through the phosphorylase kinase) due to muscle contraction. Or am I mixing everything up?

MOLECULAR CLONING

... have 5'-OH and 3'-phosphate ends... DNA ligase removes 3'-phosphates and replaces it with -OH. Thus, synthesized oligos without polynucleotide kinase treatment will participate in the ligation reaction with both their ends having -OH groups. The 3'-OH end of the oligo will form covalent bond ...

MOLECULAR CLONING

... double stranded oligos need to be modified in any way before the ligation reaction. And yes, they need a 5'-phosphate added, by polynucleotide kinase, so the ligase can actually generate the covalent link.
