Pro-sequence Engineering

  title={Pro-sequence Engineering},
  author={Yuan Qin-sheng},
  journal={Pharmaceutical biotechnology},
Conventional protein engineering techniques have thus far employed mutagenesis in the protease domain to modify the enzymatic properties.This new approach,termed as"pro-sequence engineering",refers to an identical polypeptide can fold into an altered conformation with different secondary structure,stability and specificities through a mutated pro-sequence,which is not only an important tool for studying the mechanism of protein folding,but also a promising technolique for creating unique… Expand
Structural and functional diversities in lepidopteran serine proteases
The structurally and functionally diverse Lepidopteran serine proteases are examined, and their influence on larval digestive processes and on overall insect physiology is assessed. Expand
