The crystal structure of β-galactosidase from Bacillus circulans (BgaC) was determined at 1.8Å resolution. The overall structure of BgaC consists of three distinct domains, which are the catalytic domain with a TIM-barrel structure and two all-β domains (ABDs). The main-chain fold and steric configurations of the acidic and aromatic residues at the active(More)
STAT5 is an essential transcription factor in hematopoiesis, which is activated through tyrosine phosphorylation in response to cytokine stimulation. Constitutive activation of STAT5 is a hallmark of myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemia. Using homology modeling and molecular dynamics simulations, a model of the STAT5 phosphotyrosine-SH2 domain interface was(More)
A facile enzymatic synthesis of the methylumbelliferyl β-glycoside of the type 2 A blood group tetrasaccharide in good yields is reported. Using this compound, we developed highly sensitive fluorescence-based high-throughput assays for both endo-β-galactosidase and α-N-acetylgalactosaminidase activity specific for the oligosaccharide structure of the blood(More)
