The sequence of the 'Rieske' iron sulfur protein from the bc1 complex of beef heart mitochondria has been determined by solid phase Edman degradation of the whole protein and of various proteolytic fragments. The protein consists of 196 amino acid residues. The molecular mass of the apoprotein was calculated to be 21,536 Da, that of the holo-protein(More)
Cystatin, the protein inhibitor of cysteine proteinases from chicken egg white was purified by a new method. The two major forms with pI 6.5 (Peak I) and 5.6 (Peak II) were separated. Molecular masses of both forms are approx. 12700 Da as determined by gel chromatography; Form A from Peak I has a molecular mass of 12191 Da as calculated from its amino-acid(More)
A new low-molecular weight protein inhibitor of cysteine proteinases, human cystatin, was isolated from sera of patients with autoimmune diseases. It inhibits papain, human cathepsin H and cathepsin B. According to its partially determined amino-acid sequence, human cystatin is highly homologous to egg white cystatin, but only distantly related to stefin,(More)
The primary structure of stefin, a new cysteine proteinase inhibitor from the cytosol of human polymorphonuclear granulocytes, was determined by amino-acid sequence analysis. The protein consists of 98 amino-acid residues and contains no cysteine. Its molecular mass was calculated to be 11006 Da. The sequence was obtained by automatic solid-phase Edman(More)
The 11 subunits of beef heart bc1 complex can be separated either by a new SDS-PAGE system or by a series of chromatographic steps involving dissociation of the complex by salt treatment. The amino acid sequence of the smallest subunit was determined by complete solid-phase Edman degradation and was confirmed by sequencing the N-terminal part and the(More)
Two peptides, potentially representing antigenic determinants of a proposed gene product, were synthesized. The peptide sequences were deduced from the nucleotide sequence of the unidentified reading frame (URF)1 of the Neurospora crassa mitochondrial genome. Specific antisera to the synthetic peptides were produced. The antibodies recognized a single(More)
The 9.5 kDa protein of beef heart ubiquinol:cytochrome c reductase was isolated by a series of chromatographic steps involving dissociation of the complex by urea and guanidine. A clear distinction between the 9.5 kDa protein and the 9.2 kDa protein described earlier [(1982) J. Biochem. 91, 2077-2085] by SDS-PAGE was only achieved when the electrophoresis(More)
The 8 kDa protein of beef heart ubiquinol:cytochrome c reductase was detected by means of a new SDS-PAGE [(1985) FEBS Lett. 190, 89-94] system and was isolated by a series of chromatographic steps involving dissociation of the complex by salt treatment. The amino acid sequence was determined by solid-phase Edman degradation of both the N-terminal part of(More)
A cytochrome c1 subcomplex was obtained from purified complex III. The subcomplex consists of three protein subunits, present at an equimolar stoichiometry. The primary structures of two of these proteins, the heme-carrying cytochrome c1 and a protein with a molecular mass of 9175 Da, have been published by Wakabayashi et al. The covalent structure of the(More)
