Example sentences for: amidase

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

  • We show that this superfamily, in addition to the well characterized P60-related peptidoglycan peptidases, includes divergent cell-wall hydrolases typified by AcmB/LytN, eukaryotic proteins such as LRAT, Egl-26 and their relatives, amidase domains of GSPSs, and several other uncharacterized bacterial proteins.

  • GSPS is a bifunctional enzyme: its synthase domain carries out the ATP-dependent fusion of two glutathione moieties to the polyamine spermidine to form the antioxidant metabolite GSP, while its amidase domain hydrolyzes the amide linkage to release glutathione and spermidine [ 26, 55, 56].

  • These observations, taken together, suggest that classical NlpC/P60-like peptidases, the LRAT-like permuted forms, and the divergent GSPS amidase domain-like proteins comprise a vast superfamily of enzymes with different biochemical activities.

  • Transitive searches initiated with the divergent members detected in these searches additionally recovered the amidase domains of bacterial and kinetoplastid GSPS and the bacterial peptidoglycan-degrading enzymes such as Lactococcus AcmB, Staphylococcus LytA [ 33] and LytN [ 34] and their homologs.

  • A third subfamily of the AcmB/LytN-like family is typified by the amino-terminal amidase domain of the GSPS from γ-proteobacteria and trypanosomes [ 26, 55, 56].
