Example sentences for: aaa

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

  • The structure of an AAA protomer includes an ATP-binding site located in the cleft between a large α/β N-subdomain and a smaller all-α C-subdomain.

  • The initial step of the insertion can proceed in the presence of either Mg.ATP or a non-hydrolyzable ATP-analog and involves oligomerization of the BchD and BchI subunits to form an oligomeric ring of AAA protomers that resembles the ring structure of NSF and other AAA proteins [ 14 32 ] . The second step of the insertion involves an obligatory hydrolysis of ATP that is tightly coupled with the transfer of the chelated Mg 2+to the protoporphyrin ring by BchH [ 49 ] . Although the details differ from midasin, particularly with respect to the subunit composition of the AAA ring, this chelation reaction provides a structural model suggesting that the function of the midasin M-domain may be to regulate the ATPase activity of the AAA protomers in the pseudo-hexameric ring and thus couple ATP hydrolysis to the binding of a protein ligand at the MIDAS site.

  • The early evolutionary divergence of the different major branches of the AAA family makes it difficult to evaluate the phylogenetic relationships among them [ 45 ] . However, by restricting the analysis to residues in the more highly conserved regions of the AAA structure that interact directly with ATP, we have been able to improve the signal to noise ratio sufficiently to probe the phylogenetic relationship of midasin and dynein to representative members in other branches of the AAA family.

  • The AAA domain has been affected relatively little: all six AAA protomers are retained and the overall length of the domain is reduced by only ~19%.

  • The BchI subunit also possesses a single AAA protomer, but contains no MIDAS domain [ 32 ] . The third subunit BchH is able to bind the protoporphyrin ring in either the presence or absence of ATP.
