Cyclodextrin glucanotransferase (CGTase, EC 2. 4. 1. 19) converts starch and related alpha-1,4-glucans to cyclodextrin (CD). Our previous studies of the enzyme have suggested that E344 on the polypeptide is crucial to the enzyme activity. Mutational analysis of CGTase was performed to confirm this idea. Three mutant CGTases containing either E344D, E344K or(More)
Brugada syndrome (BrS) is an inheritable sudden cardiac death disease mainly caused by SCN5A mutations. Traditional approaches can be costly and time-consuming if all candidate variants need to be validated through in vitro studies. Therefore, we developed a new approach by combining multiple in silico analyses to predict functional and structural changes(More)
Adenylate kinase has been extracted from Paracoccus denitrificans by toluene treatment and purified 370-fold (overall yield of 44%, 554 U/mg, Mr 22 000, pI 4.7; pH optimum 7.5-8.0) by using successive column chromatography on DEAE-cellulose DE-52, Matrex-Blue A and Sephadex G-75. The enzyme was homogeneous by dodecylsulfate gel electrophoresis and constancy(More)
