Uric acid inhibited 50% of the activity of bovine kidney low molecular mass phosphotyrosine protein phosphatase at concentrations of 1.0, 0.4, 1.3, and 0.2 mM, respectively for p-nitrophenyl phosphate (p-NPP), flavine mononucleotide, beta-naphthyl phosphate and tyrosine phosphate (Tyr-P) as substrates. The mixed type inhibition of p-NPP hydrolysis was fully(More)
The effect of temperature on the activity and structural stability of an acid phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.2.) purified from castor bean (Ricinus communis L.) seeds have been examined. The enzyme showed high activity at 45 °C using p-nitrophenylphosphate (p-NPP) as substrate. The activation energy for the catalyzed reaction was 55.2 kJ mol−1 and the enzyme(More)
In this study, the aim was to determine the complete sequence of the Copaifera langsdorffii trypsin inhibitor (CTI)-1 using 2-dimensional (2D)-PAGE, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF), and quadrupole time-of-flight (QTOF) spectrometry. Spots A (CTI-1) and F (CTI-2) were submitted to enzymatic digestions with trypsin, SV8,(More)
The trypsin serine protease inhibitor from Albizia niopoides seeds was purified, characterized, and had its antimicrobial activity tested against different bacteria and fungi strains. The purification was performed in three chromatographic steps. The molecular mass estimated by polyacrylamideTricine-SDSPAGE-gel was confirmed by mass spectrometry as(More)
In this work we examined the effect of urea and guanidinium chloride on the structural stability of a single isoform of soybean seed acid phosphatase, based on the intensity of tryptophan fluorescence as a function of denaturant concentration. The free energy of unfolding, DeltaGu, was calculated at 25 degrees C as a function of the concentrations of both(More)
Several sesquiterpene lactone were synthesized and their inhibitive activities on phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) from Bothrops jararacussu venom were evaluated. Compounds Lac01 and Lac02 were efficient against PLA(2) edema-inducing, enzymatic and myotoxic activities and it reduces around 85% of myotoxicity and around 70% of edema-inducing activity. Lac05-Lac08(More)
