Activity Profiling of Papain-Like Cysteine Proteases in Plants1

Together, these results demonstrate that this technology can identify differentially activated proteases and/or characterize the activity of a particular protease within complex mixtures.

Solid‐Phase Synthesis of Double‐Headed Epoxysuccinyl Activity‐Based Probes for Selective Targeting of Papain Family Cysteine Proteases

Preliminary results involving the solid-phase synthesis of cathepsin B-specific ABPs based on the E-64 scaffold and development of a method that would allow facile attachment of diverse peptide sequences on both sides of the epoxide moiety are reported.

Activity-based probes for the proteomic profiling of metalloproteases.

It is demonstrated that MPs can display overlapping inhibitor sensitivities despite lacking sequence homology and the need to evaluate MP inhibitors broadly across this enzyme class to develop agents with suitable target selectivities in vivo is stressed.

Activity‐Based Protein Profiling for Type I Methionine Aminopeptidase by Using Photo‐Affinity Trimodular Probes

An advanced technique is introduced, “CC-ABPP”, in which the reporter tag is attached to the probe by the bio-orthogonal copper(I)-catalyzed azide and alkyne cycloaddition reaction following covalent labeling of the protein target, and a similar strategy for the design and chemical synthesis of a trimodular affinity probe is reported.

In-cell Selectivity Profiling of Serine Protease Inhibitors by Activity-based Proteomics*S

This novel ABP was shown to label the active site of several serine proteases with greater efficiency than a previously reported fluorophosphonate probe and open new perspectives for safety profiling studies in uncovering potential cellular “side effects” of drugs (unanticipated off-target inhibition or activation) that may be overlooked by standard selectivity profiling methods.

From covalent glycosidase inhibitors to activity-based glycosidase probes.

This concept presents the current progress and future directions in the design of activity-based probes targeting retaining Glycosidases, enzymes that employ a double displacement mechanism in the hydrolysis of glycosidic bonds with overall retention.

Applications of Copper-Catalyzed Click Chemistry in Activity-Based Protein Profiling

Recent examples of CuAAC in ABPP are summarized to illustrate the contribution of bioorthogonal chemistry to advancing discoveries in this field.

Recent Advances in Activity-Based Protein Profiling of Proteases.

This chapter discusses several strategies to enable detection of a single active protease species and describes the different types of detection tags that facilitate the read-out possibilities including various types of imaging methods and mass spectrometry-based target identification.



Activity-based protein profiling: the serine hydrolases.

The chemical synthesis and utility of an active-site directed probe for visualizing dynamics in the expression and function of an entire enzyme family, the serine hydrolases, is described and it is shown that FP-biotin labels these proteins in an activity-dependent manner that can be followed kinetically.

Substrate binding and sequence preference of the proteasome revealed by active-site-directed affinity probes.

Structural basis of inhibition of cysteine proteases by E-64 and its derivatives.

This paper focuses on the inhibitory mechanism of E-64 and its derivatives (epoxysuccinyl-based inhibitors) with some cysteine proteases, based on the binding modes observed in the x-ray crystal

Covalent modification of the active site threonine of proteasomal beta subunits and the Escherichia coli homolog HslV by a new class of inhibitors.

125I-NIP-L3VS covalently modifies the HSlV subunit of the Escherichia coli protease complex HslV/HslU, a reaction that requires ATP, and supports a catalytic mechanism shared with that of the eukaryotic proteasome.

Methionine aminopeptidase (type 2) is the common target for angiogenesis inhibitors AGM-1470 and ovalicin.

Peptidyl fluoromethyl ketones as thiol protease inhibitors.

F fluoromethyl ketone derivatives of peptides are considerably less reactive to nucleophiles such as the thiol group of glutathione, than chlorometHyl ketones and, therefore, this new class of inhibitors may provoke fewer side reactions when used in biological studies.

Epoxomicin, a potent and selective proteasome inhibitor, exhibits in vivo antiinflammatory activity.

The proteasome regulates cellular processes as diverse as cell cycle progression and NF-kappaB activation. In this study, we show that the potent antitumor natural product epoxomicin specifically
