We focused on the S1/S2 sequence, a specific and functionally highly relevant cleavage site within the S protein, and documented mutations between asymptomatic and highly symptomatic cats that correlated strongly with FIP.
The exact peptides involved in the 4D4 and 5C3 binding site are not known, and thus it is not known whether these antibodies bind directly at the cleavage site.

6]), as the substrate of CPN, with the cleavage sites predicted by bioinformatics tools [e.
13) This is remarkable because the mutation is distant from the stalk cleavage site and probably causes a change in the relative orientation of the two domains, allowing better access of the sheddase.
Maturation of the precursor proteins begins by intramolecular cleavage of Gag-Pro-Pol and continues by a process of ordered cleavages governed by differences in the inherent processing rates at each cleavage site (see Figure 3) [14-18] which for HIV Gag can vary up to 400-fold [16,17].
This technology involves removal of several of the amino acids found at the hemagglutinin cleavage site, growing plasmids that code for the modified components, and then reassorting them into a nonpathogenic strain, Dr.
A mild infiltrate of chronic inflammatory cells, including lymphocytes and plasma cells, is noted subjacent to the cleavage site.
The positively charged histidine residues (98, 100, and 102) of [kappa]-casein, which are located prior to the cleavage site, appear to be able to interact with negatively charged residues of chymosin, which are quite distant from the active site.
By incorporating a small section of the fabric filter material into a breaker core, a cleavage site is introduced, allowing for a uniform fracture surface that does not cause a jagged surface that might break into the casting.
Normally, APP's cleavage site remains well protected, buried within the lipid matrix of a cell membrane.
In fact, the DNE technology was developed to avoid the need for prior insertion of a cleavage site into a genome, or reliance on the exceedingly rare and random occurrence of a cleavage site at a desired site in a genome.
