The protein parvulustat (Z-2685) from Streptomyces parvulus comprises 78 amino acids and functions as a highly efficient alpha-amylase inhibitor. Parvulustat shares 29.6 % overall amino acid sequence identity to the well-known alpha-amylase inhibitor tendamistat. Among the conserved residues are the two disulfide bridges (C9-C25, C43-C70) and the(More)
Parvulustat is a small, highly active proteinaceous α-amylase inhibitor whose high-resolution NMR structure was recently solved in Frankfurt. Here, we present its biochemical and biophysical characterization. Several spectroscopic methods such as UV, fluorescence and CD were utilized to extract conformational changes upon modification of pH, temperature and(More)
