The enzyme peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (PPIase) was recently discovered in mammalian tissues and purified from porcine kidney. It catalyses the slow cis-trans isomerization of proline peptide (Xaa-Pro) bonds in oligopeptides and accelerates slow, rate-limiting steps in the folding of several proteins. Here, we report the N-terminal sequence of(More)
The p53 protein is a transcription factor that acts as the major tumor suppressor in mammals. The core DNA-binding domain is mutated in about 50% of all human tumors. The crystal structure of the core domain in complex with DNA illustrated how a single core domain specifically interacts with its DNA consensus site and how it is inactivated by mutation.(More)
Clinical diagnosis in acute abdominal pain is still a major problem. Computer-aided diagnosis offers some help; however, existing systems still produce high error rates. We therefore tested machine learning techniques in order to improve standard statistical systems. The investigation was based on a prospective clinical database with 1254 cases, 46(More)
Two enzymes are now known that catalyse slow steps in protein folding. Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase catalyses the cis-trans isomerization of Xaa-Pro peptide bonds in oligopeptides and during the refolding of several proteins. The other enzyme, protein-disulphide isomerase, accelerates the reactivation of reduced proteins, presumably by catalysis of(More)
PROBLEM Clinicians' acceptance of clinical decision support depends on its workflow-oriented, context-sensitive accessibility and availability at the point of care, integrated into the Electronic Patient Record (EPR). Commercially available Hospital Information Systems (HIS) often focus on administrative tasks and mostly do not provide additional knowledge(More)
The role of asparagine-linked oligosaccharides for the mechanism of protein folding was investigated. We compared the stability and folding kinetics for two sets of pancreatic ribonucleases (RNases) with identical amino acid sequences and differences in glycosylation. First the folding of RNases A (carbohydrate free) and B (a single N-linked(More)
