Description : The objectives of this investigation have been to characterize black gram (Phaseolus Mongo L.) and rice (Oryza sativa L.) proteins and to study changes in their nutritional value due to fermentation. black gram, the legume chosen for this work, is one of the most important legume crops throughout a large part of the tropics. The protein content of 60 mesh, dehydrated, defatted black gram meal was 28.5 percent. Sodium carbonate (0.5- 1.0 percent), tetra-sodium pyrophosphate (0.5 percent), and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) (0.5-5 percent) proved to be the potential protein solubilizers as they extracted more than 76 grams of Lowry's protein per 100 grams Kjeldahl protein. On the considerations of contaminating residue in the final product and disruption of native structure of the proteins, these chemical agents were unsuitable. Sodium sulfate at the 10 percent level was judged to be the best protein solubilizer. Proteins separated on polyacrylamide gel using a phenol-acetic acid-mercaptoethanol-urea (PAMU) system were run on the flat bed gel containing SDS. The proteins were separated in 13 constituents and the molecular weights of the major ones were 140,000 and 55,000. Solubilized proteins contained 81 percent globulins, 13 percent albumins, 4 percent prolamins, and 2 percent glutelins . Sulfur containing amino acids and threonine were deficient in total proteins xv of the seeds with 27. 6 and 78.8 as their respective chemical scores . Chemical scores of the albumin, globulin, prolamin, and glutelin fractions were 64, 0, 56, and 70.7, respectively. The predicted biological values in human nutrition varied from O for globulins to 110 for glutelins, and was 14.9 for total proteins in the seeds. The constituents of the protein fractions were isoelectrically focused in the acidic pH range with the exception of two globulins for which the isoelectric points were 8.42 and 8.65. The trypsin inhibitor from black gram was isolated using affinity chromatography gel with 19. 5 fold purification. The inhibitor had 75 amino acid residues and contained one disulfide bridge. Chemical studies assigned an important role for the hydrogen bonds and demonstrated vital importance of the disulfide bridge in retaining the inhibiting activity. The inhibitor was stable and retained 35 percent of the activity when heated at 100℗ʻC for 60 minutes at pH 11. Chemical modification of amino acid residues suggested the involvement of lysine and arginine residues at the active site of the inhibitor. Lysine and arginine moieties at the active site have been proposed to be present as alanyllysine and histidylarginine. Inhib i tion of bovine pancreatic trypsin by the inhibitor was kinetically studied . The kinetic constants Km and Vm ax were 2.7 x l0- 5M and 6 x l0 - 3M/min, respectively. The dissociation constant for the enzyme-inhibitor complex (Ki) was 4 x l0- 7M, whereas that for the enzyme-inhibitor-substrate complex (K. 1 , ) was 1.89 x l0- 6M. The inhibition was a mixture of partial competitive and pure-noncompetitive systems. Rice and black gram form the integral parts of a fermented snack food of the Indian subcontinent~idli. Amino acid composition of black gram and rice were complementary. Leucine, lysine, and sulfur containing amino acids were the most limiting amino acids in rice with 65. 1, 66.3, and 67.9 as their respective scores. The estimates of biological values of rice proteins in human nutrition qualified albumins as superior and prolamins as inferior proteins. The PAMUsy stem in polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was more efficient in resolving protein subunits than the SOS gel system. The PAMUsy stem was not sensitive to the ionic strength of the sample. Mobilities of rice and black gram proteins in SOS and PAMUsy stems were based on the related parameters. In the PAMUsy stem, the mobilities of most proteins seemed to depend on their molecular size. The PAMUsy stem on gel electrophoresis was judged superior to the SOS system. Fermentation of the black gram-rice blend was kinetically studied for changes in physicochemical characteristics and nutritional functionality. Trypsin inhibiting activity was unaffected, but chymotrypsin inhibiting activity was reduced to 3 percent after 20 hours fermentation , Significant increases were noted in the contents of sulfur containing amino acids during fermentation . These amino acids seemed to be bioavailable. In vitro digestion with pepsin and pancreatin indicated improvement in digestibility of proteins after fermentation. The digestibility was further enhanced by steaming.

Description : Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued. The current list of Specialist Periodical Reports can be seen on the inside flap of this volume.

Description : Progress has clearly been made on all of the goals set forth in the original proposal. Although the monoclonal antibodies raised against FNR turned out no to be useful for mapping the FNR/ferredoxin or FNR/NADP+ interaction domains, good progress has been made on mapping the FNR/ferredoxin interaction domains by an alternative technique, differential chemical modification. Furthermore, the techniques developed for differential chemical modifications of these two proteins - taurine modification of aspartate and glutamate residues and biotin modification of lysine residues - should be useful for mapping the interaction domains of many proteins that associate through electrostatic interactions. Finally, progress has also been made with respect to another ferredoxin-dependent enzyme involved in the earliest steps of plant nitrogen metabolism - nitrite reductase. Questions concerning the subunit composition and heme content of the enzyme have been resolved and evidence demonstrating the involvement of lysine and arginine residues in binding ferredoxin has been obtained for the first time.

Description : This volume arose originally from the complaints of the editor's students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, that there was no modern book on protein fibers which told enough about protein science and chemical tech nologies related to fibers. By and large this is probably a reasonable cri de coeur. The undergraduate on a technological course, lacking information on the basic scientific techniques used to carry out the research on which his fiber technology is based, can find it difficult to obtain this information. The pure science undergraduate often lacks knowledge of the application of these techniques in protein fiber technology. The young graduates, com mencing research related to some aspect of protein fibers, are drawn from a wide range of scientific disciplines, having been trained as biochemists, chemists, physicists, technologists, and histologists, to name but a few. Generally these new research workers pass through a preliminary "lost" period in which they have to evaluate their background in relation to the wide and differing fields of research in protein fiber science to which they are now exposed. As time goes on they then either develop a wide knowledge covering science and technology or remain in a specific part of their original discipline, with a narrow knowledge of its application in the field of the research degree they are taking.

Description : An investigation of essential amino acid moieties associated with the plasma membrane H$sp+$-ATPase of red beet was undertaken using specific chemical modification. Lysine residues were modified using fluorescein-5$spprime$-isothiocyanate at alkaline pH. Micromolar concentrations of this reagent during incubation of the plant ATPase at pH 9.2 resulted in enzyme inactivation. Activity was protected by the presence of the substrate, ATP or the product, ADP. This suggested an active site location for this lysine residue, consistent with data obtained with other E$sb1$E$sb2$-type ATPases. Phenylglyoxyl and 2,3-butanedione were used to determine if essential arginine moieties were associated with the red beet H$sp+$-ATPase. Inhibition kinetics for both reagents at millimolar concentrations revealed the presence of one essential arginine. Inclusion of either ATP or ADP in the incubation medium protected the enzyme against inactivation by both reagents. Treatment of the H$sp+$-ATPase with phenylglyoxyl inhibited phosphoenzyme formation. However, it was uncertain whether this represented an effect on ATP binding or the production of the covalent aspartyl intermediate. Based upon the results of this study, it was proposed that the H$sp+$-ATPase contains an active site arginine residue which might interact with the phosphate groups of the ATP substrate. Transient state kinetic studies have suggested the presence of an essential histidine moiety in the red beet plasma membrane H$sp+$-ATPase. The histidine modifying reagent diethylpyrocarbonate was used to investigate this possibility. This reagent was an effective inhibitor of the ATPase in the micromolar concentration range and ATP was only partially effective in protecting against inhibition. Thus, this essential moiety may instead reside in a separate conformationally active region of the protein. Phosphoenzyme formation and discharge by unlabeled ATP addition were unaffected by treatment with this reagent. This was consistent with diethylpyrocarbonate acting to block the catalytic cycle at the level of the first phosphoenzyme intermediate (E$sb1$P). Characterization of essential amino acid moieties associated with the plant plasma membrane H$sp+$-ATPase represents an important step towards understanding the mechanism of this protein. These results will complement recent information regarding deduced amino acid sequences for this enzyme obtained using gene cloning methodology.

Description : We seek to map the ferredoxin-binding sites on three soluble enzymes located in spinach chloroplasts which utilize ferredoxin as an electron donor:Ferredoxin:NADPoxidoreductase (FNR); ferredoxin:thioredoxin reductase (FTR) and glutamate synthase. As the availability of amino acid sequences for the enzymes are important in such studies, that the amino acid sequence of glutamate synthase needs be determined, the amino acid sequences of FNR, FTR and ferredoxin are already known. Related to an aim elucidate the binding sites for ferredoxin to determine whether there is a common binding site on all of these ferredoxin-dependent chloroplast enzymes and, if so, to map it. Additionally thioredoxin binding by FTR needs be determine to resolve whether the same site on FTR is involved in binding both ferredoxin and thioredoxin. Considerable progress is reported on the prosthetic groups of glutamate synthase, in establishing the role of arginine and lysine residues in ferredoxin binding by, ferredoxin:nitrite oxidoreductase nitrite reductase, labelling carboxyl groups on ferredoxin with taurine and labelling lysine residues biotinylation, and low potential heme proteins have been isolated and characterized from a non-photosynthetic plant tissue.

Description : It is estimated that 1-5% ofthe world's population is affected by some form of diabetes. Patients with these disorders are highly likely to develop microvas cular pathology in the retina and glomerulus and they are at a 2--6-fold greater risk for atherosclerotic vascular disease than individuals without diabetes. In addition, hypertension is far more prevalent in patients with diabetes than in the general population. As a consequence of these complications, diabetes is a leading cause of blindness and renal failure in young and middle-aged adults and it is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease in the Western world. An understanding of the relationship of these vascular complications to diabetic hyperglycemia has become a critical issue for clinicians in recent years, since the prevalence of diabetes appears to be increasing dramatically world-wide. In addition, it is now possible to achieve improved glycemic control in many patients-although not without incurring other risks. This volume explores two principal hypotheses concerning these complications. One is that hyperglycemia underlies or at least contributes to the pathogenesis of both micro- and macrovascular disease in patients with diabetes. The other is that it does so by producing specific metabolic and biochemical alterations in the vascular wall that lead to abnormalities in its function and ultimately its structure.

Description : Reflecting the versatility of the author’s science and the depth of his experience, Application of Solution Protein Chemistry to Biotechnology explores key contributions that protein scientists can make in the development of products that are both important and commercially viable, and provides them with tools and information required for successful participation. One of the of the world’s most respected protein researchers, Roger Lundblad does not succumb to the notion that new is always better. The application of protein science to the practice of commercial biotechnology is traced to the underlying basic solution protein chemistry. It is only by achieving this understanding that the full potential of protein science may be obtained in the development and characterization of the diverse products of modern biotechnology. Dr. Lundblad also goes far beyond the biopharmaceutical applications that are often equated with protein science today to demonstrate the field’s unique versatility. From the making of bread and the invention of adhesives to the production of pharmaceuticals and the development of recombinant DNA products— in each of these products, the role of the protein chemist remains prominent. The important point is that classical protein chemistry is a critical part of the practice of biotechnology in the marketplace. Providing the direction and the foundational work needed by students as well as the details and hundreds of references needed by designers and developers, this remarkable work— Delves into the application of protein science for producing products as diverse as adhesives, drug delivery systems, and quality food products Explores chemistry of attachment of proteins and peptides to solid surfaces with regard to applications both for the improvement of steel and titanium and in DNA and protein microarrays Describes the development of bioconjugates used in antibodies Offers essential advice on guidelines required for producing licensed biopharmaceutical products While he does include a great deal of material not found in other sources, Dr. Lundblad makes a point to separate what is truly new from that which has merely been renamed. A reference unlike most, scientists and students eager to learn will find a text that is as practical as it is purposeful.
