Example sentences for: papain-like

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

  • The NlpC/P60 domain is predicted to adopt a papain-like fold, in which the catalytic cysteine is at the amino terminus of a helix, which is packed against a five-stranded β-barrel with the histidine and the polar residue.

  • A comparison of the predicted secondary structure for this superfamily with known peptidase folds revealed that these three residues show exactly the same arrangement as the catalytic triad of papain-like thiol peptidases.

  • The configuration, comprising a catalytic cysteine at the amino terminus of a helix packed against a core three-stranded β-sheet, with the second and third strands bearing the catalytic histidine and its orienting polar partner, is seen in the transglutaminases and a related class of amino-group acetyltransferases, papain-like proteases, adenoviral proteases and ubiquitin carboxy-terminal hydrolases [ 32, 38] (Figure 2).

  • The presence of an analogous situation in the transglutaminases [ 30, 45] and the related NH 2 -acyltransferases [ 46] suggests that diverse acetyl/acyltransferase activities have been repeatedly derived in course of the evolution of the papain-like fold.

  • In the case of papain-like proteases - calpains, transglutaminases and NH 2 -acetyltransferases - the three-stranded sheet of the core is incorporated into β-barrel with five to eight constituent strands (Figure 2).
