Example sentences for: peptidases

How can you use “peptidases” 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.

  • Such substitutions have previously been observed in other papain-like peptidases with the serine participating in a functional active site [ 61, 62].

  • Thiol peptidases of the papain-like, transglutaminase-like, adenoviral protease-like, and caspase-hemoglobinase-like folds have a conserved cysteine (C)-histidine (H) pair [ 29, 30, 31, 32] (Figure 2).

  • A comparison of the predicted secondary structure for this superfamily with known peptidase folds revealed that these three residues show exactly the same arrangement as the catalytic triad of papain-like thiol peptidases.

  • In the NlpC/P60 domains of the AcmB-like divergent group and the circularly permuted YaeF-like and poxviral groups, this residue is an acidic residue, as in most other thiol peptidases (Figure 1).
