Analysis of the functional domain of the fusion protein cleavage site showed three basic aa residues at positions 113, 115 and 116 and a phenylalanine at position 117 (112-R-R-Q-K-R-F117), as generally identified in highly virulent strains of NDV in chicken.
Semitryptic peptides are peptides of which 1 of the 2 termini (in these cases: the C-terminus) is not formed by trypsin cleavage, and can be used to identify proteolytic cleavage sites by proteases other than trypsin.
Vitellogenin proteins contain a lipid-binding domain near the N-terminus, a Domain of Unknown Function 1943 (DUF1943), a von Willebrand Factor Type D domain (VWD), and conserved RXXR furin/subtilisin-like protease cleavage sites (Smolenaars et al.
The major cleavage sites were Ala14-Leu15 and Phe25-Tyr26, which were quite different from those of physarolisin I, whose major cleavage sites were Gly8 Ser9, Leu11-Val12 and Cys(S[O.
There are different programs approaching the cleavage site prediction problem, in several contexts and particular species.
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.
The insertion sequence at the HA cleavage site (PENPKTDRKSRHRRIR/G, insertion sequence is underlined) in H7 viruses had 100% sequence homology to chicken 28S rRNA (GenBank accession no.
Proteolytic cleavage site of F0 showed a cleavage motif (112RRQKRF117), representative of a velogenic serotype.
