Transglutaminases (TGs) are Ca(2+)-dependent enzymes capable of catalyzing transamidation of glutamine residues to form intermolecular isopeptide bonds. These enzymes are involved in various biological phenomena, including blood coagulation, wound healing, cell death, tissue repair, and terminal differentiation of keratinocytes. Among the TG-family members,(More)
This study describes the verification of the cDNA-deduced amino acid sequences of high molecular weight glutenin subunits 1Dy10 and 1Bx7 in Cheyenne cultivar by direct matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFMS) analysis of their tryptic fragments omitting chromatographic pre-separation. These polypeptides have(More)
This paper reports results on the verification of the 1Ax2* high molecular weight glutenin subunit sequence in Cheyenne cultivar. The gene sequence of the protein is known but recently some text changes have been made, and furthermore until now no characterization of post-translational modifications has been reported. The two published sequences, named I(More)
