The discovery of methionine sulfoxide reductase enzymes: An historical account and future perspectives.

Abstract

L-Methionine (L-Met) is the only sulphur-containing proteinogenic amino acid together with cysteine. Its importance is highlighted by it being the initiator amino acid for protein synthesis in all known living organisms. L-Met, free or inserted into proteins, is sensitive to oxidation of its sulfide moiety, with formation of L-Met sulfoxide. The sulfoxide… (More)
