- Spatial and cellular localization of calcium-dependent protease (CDP II) in Allomyces arbusculaMukti Ojha
Laboratoire de Bioénergétique et Microbiologie, Universite de Geneve, 3 Place de l Université, CH 1211 Geneve 4, Switzerland
J Cell Sci 116:1095-105. 2003..Western blot analysis of the crude extract and indirect immunofluorescence of the fixed permeabilized hypahe after treatment with CDPII showed that the alpha-tubulin is a specific target of the enzyme...
- Structure, expression and function of Allomyces arbuscula CDP II (metacaspase) geneMukti Ojha
Department of Biochemistry, University of Geneva, Sciences II, 30 Quai Ernest Ansermet, 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland
Gene 457:25-34. 2010..The enzyme activity is inhibited by EDTA-EGTA, cysteine protease inhibitors and a specific peptide inhibitor Ac GVRCHCL TFA, but not by E64, although a potent inhibitor of cysteine proteases...
- A novel N(alpha)-acetyl alanine aminopeptidase from Allomyces arbusculaRaniera Beti
Laboratoire de Bioénergétique et de Microbiologie, Universite de Geneve, 3, Place de l Université, 1211 4, Geneve, Switzerland
Biochimie 84:309-19. 2002..The enzyme cleaved mainly N(alpha)-acetlylated alanine, although a small but negligible activity was also obtained with acetylated leucine and phenylalanine. The role of the enzyme in N-end rule proteolysis is discussed...
