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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • This, together with the phyletic distributution of the AraC and 2OG-Fe(II) dioxygenase superfamilies, leads us to speculate that the 2OG-Fe(II) dioxygenase superfamily evolved from the AraC-like superfamily in bacteria through drastic sequence divergence that eliminated significant sequence similarity, followed by fixation of the modified active-site configuration.

  • Here, using sequence profile searches, we show that many other protein families contain the same constellation of active-site residues and are predicted to adopt the same fold.
