Example sentences for: acyl

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

  • Others have proposed that fatty acyl coenzyme A esters are potential physiologic regulators of PP5, since these compounds stimulate pNPP hydrolysis by PP5 in vitro at physiologically relevant concentrations and are approximately 10-fold more potent than their free fatty acid counterparts [ 21 ] . Although we confirmed this observation using PP5 and pNPP (data not shown), in our hands similar levels of AA and arachidoyl coenzyme A were required for half-maximal stimulation of 32P-MBP dephosphorylation in the case of both Ppt1p and PP5.

  • 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.

  • Examples of such gene fusions are the multifunctional enzymes Aas (2-acylglycerophospho-ethanolamine acyl transferase and acyl-acyl carrier protein synthetase) and G1mU ( N -acetyl glucosamine-1-phosphate uridyltransferase and glucosamine-1-phosphate acetyl transferase) [ 19, 20].

  • 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.

  • 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.
