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

  • We present a detailed evolutionary and structural analysis of the NlpC/P60 superfamily of peptidases.

  • Biochemical and structural analysis of the peptide-hydrolyzing enzymes of bacteria have revealed a large diversity of peptidases with different catalytic mechanisms.

  • 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.

  • By analogy with all other thiol proteases, in the NlpC/P60 superfamily peptidases the cysteine would act as the nucleophile that attacks the peptide bond, while the histidine acts in sequential steps as the base and then acid catalyst for the proton transfers [ 37].

  • Such substitutions have previously been observed in other papain-like peptidases with the serine participating in a functional active site [ 61, 62].
