Example sentences for: ion-binding

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

  • The ability of a MIDAS protein to bind its protein ligand is tightly linked with the presence of intact MIDAS motifs: mutations to the metal-coordinating residues in these motifs, weaken or eliminate ligand binding [ 35 36 ] . An additional set of MIDAS-like proteins, that includes the integrin β-chain [ 37 38 ] and the von Willebrand Factor A domain [ 27 ] , lacks one of the three motifs and appears to bind ligands in a somewhat different manner [ 27 39 40 ] . In midasin, the presence of all three MIDAS motifs in the M-domain, with the putative metal ion-binding residues in the motifs invariant in the available organisms, indicates that midasin belongs to the family of MIDAS-containing proteins.

  • These alterations could result from 4-aminoarabinose substitutions on the lipid A, from other changes that reduce the number of ion-binding sites, or from changes that affect hydrophobic interactions or membrane insertion.
