The isoquinoline alkaloid chelerythrine is described as an inhibitor of SERCA. The ATPase inhibition presented two non-competitive components, Ki1=1, 2 μM and Ki2=26 μM. Conversely, chelerythrine presented a dual effect on the p-nitrophenylphosphatase (pNPPase) of SERCA. Ca(2+)-dependent pNPPase was activated up to ∼5 μM chelerythrine with inhibition(More)
Snakebite envenomation is a neglected condition that constitutes a public health problem in tropical and subtropical countries, including Brazil. Interestingly, some animals are resistant to snake envenomation due to the presence of inhibitory glycoproteins in their serum that target toxic venom components. DM64 is an acidic glycoprotein isolated from(More)
Some traits of potato tubers can affect their quality, contributing to potential acrylamide formation in chips. Using three potato cultivars with contrasting dry biomass and reducing sugar contents, the effects of nitrogen source and storage conditions on tuber non-structural carbohydrate and free amino acid contents were evaluated. Color and acrylamide(More)
Thrombin, a highly specific protease of blood coagulation, has two exosites that modulate its specificity. We designed two sets of synthetic substrate FRET peptides with 25- or 11- amino acids (aa) each, based on the PAR 1 sequence, to characterize the effect of exosite 1 engagement on substrate catalysis and preference. The 25-aa set encompassed a sequence(More)
