PepX is a X-prolyl dipeptidyl aminopeptidase of S15 family that cleaves dipeptides from the N-terminus of polypeptides having a proline or alanine residue at the second position. Involved in bacterial nutrition and in peptide maturation, this serine exopeptidase, counterpart of the mammalian DDP-4, has been proposed to play a role in pathogenicity for(More)
Virologic failure during treatment with raltegravir, the first effective drug targeting HIV integrase, is associated with two exclusive pathways involving either Q148H/R/K, G140S/A or N155H mutations. We carried out a detailed analysis of the molecular and structural effects of these mutations. We observed no topological change in the integrase core domain,(More)
The dynamics of microtubules is essential for many microtubule-dependent cellular functions such as the mitosis. It has been recognized for a long time that GTP hydrolysis in αβ-tubulin polymers plays a critical role in this dynamics. However, the effects of the changes in the nature of the guanosine nucleotide at the E-site in β-tubulin on microtubule(More)
