Example sentences for: active-site

How can you use “active-site” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Before this study, structure determination, biochemical studies and sequence comparisons of 2OG-Fe(II) dioxygenases [ 1, 9] had elucidated their structural fold, active-site residues and reaction mechanism.

  • This reduction was active-site dependent: adding back multicopy HNT2 with the nucleophilic histidine replaced by alanine or aspartate reduced dinucleoside polyphosphate levels less than two-fold.

  • Furthermore, the active-site mutant alleles of HNT2 , HNT2-His109Ala and HNT2-His109Asp , provided on plasmids pB32 and pB86, demonstrated intermediate abilities to control dinucleoside polyphosphate levels, suggesting that elevated temperature reduces the catalytic defects of these mutant enzymes.

  • Although human biochemists can depress activity more than 10 5-fold in Fhit [ 35, 36] and Hint [ 30] with a single active-site His mutation, hens apparently continued to peck at the sequence of Hint, altering all four of the absolutely conserved His residues.

  • The KilA-N, APSES and TEN-terminal domains lack the equivalent residues of the specific active-site extension of the LAGLIDADG nucleases, suggesting that the former domains do not possess nuclease activity.
