Example sentences for: acyl

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

  • PTM is the site for attachment of phosphopantetheine (the prosthetic group of acyl carrier proteins in some multienzyme complexes), PTS_HPR_SER is a serine phosphorylation site found in HPr (a protein in the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system in bacteria) and UIM (ubiquitin interaction motif) is a receptor for polyubiquitination of polypeptide chains.

  • The only biochemically characterized eukaryotic representative of this superfamily is LRAT, which transfers an acyl group from the sn-1 position of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) to retinal, to form retinyl esters [ 27, 42, 43].

  • Although more work is required to examine this issue thoroughly, our results suggest that the large differences in potency between free fatty acids and fatty acyl coenzyme A esters seen using pNPP may not extend to all protein substrates.

  • In the case of pNPP hydrolysis, others have reported both saturated and unsaturated fatty acyl coenzyme A esters stimulate PP5 activity, with concentrations required for half-maximal stimulation approximately 10-fold lower than those of their corresponding free fatty acids [ 21 ] . We therefore tested whether a saturated fatty acyl coenzyme A ester could also stimulate Ppt1p.

  • These data indicate that Ppt1p is stimulated by polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as by a saturated fatty acyl coenzyme A derivative, toward some but not all substrates dephosphorylated by PP5.
