Example sentences for: amide

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

  • Consistent with this prediction, a position in CP29, a minor LHCII, was preferentially filled during reconstitution by Chl a when the amino acid residue was the normal Glu, in an ion-pair with a bound Ca ++ion, but occupancy was shifted toward Chl b when the ligand was a weaker base, the amide group of Gln [ 31 ] . Although the on-rate for Chl b may be slower than that for Chl a, because binding may be impeded by a water molecule more strongly coordinated to the central Mg atom of Chl b, the greater Lewis acid strength of Chl b allows more stable bonds with the weaker ligands.

  • The orienting polar residue is either an acidic or a polar amide residue in most members of the thiol-peptidase fold [ 32, 37].

  • 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 enzyme complexes each recognize a subset of substrates and tag them by linking the carboxyl terminus of ubiquitin with an amino group on the target protein via an amide bond (Figure 1).

  • As GshA has a binding site that accommodates γ-Glu-Cys, it would appear to be an ideal progenitor of GshB, which uses γ-Glu-Cys as a substrate and also catalyzes the ATP-dependent formation of an amide bond.
