  • Inherited deficiency of the lysosomal hydrolase [alpha]-glucosidase (acid maltase) causes lysosomal accumulation of glycogen, a condition known as glycogen storage disease type II (GSD II). The clinical phenotype is heterogeneous, and heterogeneity also exists at the molecular level. Point mutations were recently identified in two cases of severe infantile and one case of adult GSD II. In addition to mutations with a deleterious effect on enzyme function, several polymorphisms have been documented. Of note are those polymorphisms that relate to racial differences, but they can pose a problem when mutant alleles are being analyzed. An example of this was anmore » American black patient with an adult form of GSD II (GM1935). Mutation analysis revealed three amino acid substitutions that were not encountered in the Caucasian population. The three substitutions were Asp-645 [r arrow] Glu (exon 14), Val-816 [r arrow] Ile (exon 17), and Thr-927 [r arrow] Ile (exon 19), and they were linked to the same allele . The Thr-927 [r arrow] Ile substitution deleting the most carboxyl-terminal N-linked glycosylation site was found to have no effect on enzyme function, in agreement with the studies on the role of the individual glycosylation sites. There were different opinions, however, with respect to the effect of the other two substitutions. The Val-816 [r arrow] Ile substitution was reported by Martiniuk et al. to cause the lysosomal [alpha]-glucosidase deficiency, but the authors concluded on the basis of more extensive studies that the Asp-645[r arrow] Glu substitution was actually the deleterious mutation and the Val-816 [r arrow] Ile substitution a polymorphism. 8 refs., 1 fig.« less
  • The activated rotation of the tyrosine 35 ring in bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor has been simulated in model solvents that have extremely different viscosities but that are otherwise identical. Both simulations are at 300 K, but one solvent corresponds to liquid water and the other to a hypothetical glassy water. Although the ring is located in the surface region of the protein, the freezing of the solvents reduces the rate constant for rotation by only 50%. The time required to complete individual transitions is somewhat lengthened, apparently due to slowed relaxation both of ring-solvent interactions and of the conformation ofmore » the protein matrix that surrounds most of the ring. The slowing of these relaxations also leads to the reduction in the rate constant: the persistence of ring environments that favor rotation increases the likelihood that the ring will return to the transition-state region soon after passing through it, rather than being trapped in a stable state.« less
  • The rate of {beta}-structure formation and its stability were correlated quantitatively for the pH-induced coil-to-{beta}-structure conversion of poly(S-(carboxymethyl)-L-cysteine) at 25 and 40{degree}C but only qualitatively for the conversion caused by a denaturant (LiClO{sub 4}). The free energy difference between the randomly coiled initial state and the {beta}-structure in the final state was evaluated and used as a measure of the stability. The conversion rates were consistently explained in terms of a stability parameter of the {beta}-structure (s{sub {beta}}). The derived rate-stability relationship was compared with Finkelstein's theoretical prediction.
  • This paper considers the protein structure prediction problem for lattice and off-lattice protein folding models that explicitly represent side chains. Lattice models of proteins have proven extremely useful tools for reasoning about protein folding in unrestricted continuous space through analogy. This paper provides the first illustration of how rigorous algorithmic analyses of lattice models can lead to rigorous algorithmic analyses of off-lattice models. The authors consider two side chain models: a lattice model that generalizes the HP model (Dill 85) to explicitly represent side chains on the cubic lattice, and a new off-lattice model, the HP Tangent Spheres Side Chainmore » model (HP-TSSC), that generalizes this model further by representing the backbone and side chains of proteins with tangent spheres. They describe algorithms for both of these models with mathematically guaranteed error bounds. In particular, the authors describe a linear time performance guaranteed approximation algorithm for the HP side chain model that constructs conformations whose energy is better than 865 of optimal in a face centered cubic lattice, and they demonstrate how this provides a 70% performance guarantee for the HP-TSSC model. This is the first algorithm in the literature for off-lattice protein structure prediction that has a rigorous performance guarantee. The analysis of the HP-TSSC model builds off of the work of Dancik and Hannenhalli who have developed a 16/30 approximation algorithm for the HP model on the hexagonal close packed lattice. Further, the analysis provides a mathematical methodology for transferring performance guarantees on lattices to off-lattice models. These results partially answer the open question of Karplus et al. concerning the complexity of protein folding models that include side chains.« less
