Glycosyl hydrolase family 1 β-glucosidases are important enzymes that serve many diverse functions in plants including defense, whereby hydrolyzing the defensive compounds such as hydroxynitrile glucosides. A hydroxynitrile glucoside cleaving β-glucosidase gene (Llbglu1) was isolated from Leucaena leucocephala, cloned into pET-28a (+) and expressed in E.(More)
hIAPP fibrillization implicated in Type 2 diabetes pathology involves formation of oligomers toxic to insulin producing pancreatic β-cells. We report design, synthesis, 3D structure and functional characterization of dehydrophenylalanine (ΔF) containing peptides which inhibit hIAPP fibrillization. The inhibitor protects β-cells from hIAPP induced toxicity.
Table S1. List of designed peptides and their percentage (%) hIAPP-fibrillization inhibition activity measured through ThT binding assay. Table S4. The intermolecular and intramolecular hydrogen bonds observed in the crystal structures of FGAΔFL & FGAΔFI.
