    ..These observations provide information on sortase catalysis and the semisynthetic enzymes might represent useful tools for further biochemical investigations and engineering approaches of sortases A. ..

    ..We have developed a miniaturized assay for the multi-site readout of deacetylase activity and profiled the substrate selectivity of HDACs for acetylation sites on histone H4 and tumor suppressor protein p53. ..

    ..These results underline the utility of the newly established probes for deciphering not only activity, but also substrate selectivity and composition of endogenous HDAC complexes, which can hardly be achieved otherwise. ..

    ..These investigations further showed that SrtN and human SIRT1 are efficient lysine-deformylases, thereby providing a first clue as to how this nonenzymatic modification might be removed from affected proteins. ..

    ..Streptococci sortases prefer an LPKLG donor substrate sequence compared to the canonical sorting motif LPKTG. These findings might facilitate the use of Streptococci sortases as tools of protein chemistry. ..
