This quantity comprises fifty six contributions provided on the 1st foreign Symposium on Post-Translational changes of Proteins and growing older, hung on the Island of Ischia (Naples, Italy) from may perhaps eleven to fifteen, 1987, less than the auspices of the collage of Naples and the Italian Society of Biochemistry. the first goal of this interdisciplinary assembly used to be to advertise a efficient alternate between scientists from assorted cultural parts, and to provide them the chance to debate difficulties of universal curiosity approached from diversified medical standpoints. even if a great number of stories has ended in a definition of the chemical mechanisms and of the most enzymological facets of the different post-translational differences of proteins, we're nonetheless far-off from an entire elucidation of the practical importance of such strategies. actually, it kind of feels average that the shortly to be had experi­ psychological techniques and versions hired to enquire the organic roles are nonetheless insufficient. the quest for appropriate version structures used to be a question of dialogue in the course of the assembly, and may be an immense problem sooner or later. the main often hired techniques to this challenge up to now were in vitro, yet numerous proteins said to be very good in vitro substrates did not express any job while assayed in in vivo models.

Since Asn residues were readily identified by amino acid sequencing (Ichinose et al •• 1986a; Takahashi et al •• 1986). 5% carbohydrate (Bohn, 1970). Two regions around Gly-25l and Gly-473 appear to be good candidates for the calcium-binding site in the molecule when compared to the consensus sequence of other calcium-binding proteins. , 1986), it will score the maximum number, 16. Both potential calcium-binding regions of the ~ subunit matched in only 10 positions. Also, the potential alpha helix and beta sheet for these regions were not typical (data not shown).

The partial leader sequence, however, did not include the initiator Met. The leader peptide of the ~ subunit contains a typical hydrophobic core that aids in its secretion into the blood. Amino Acid Sequence of the b Subunit The ~ subunit is composed of 641 amino acid residues (Fig. 3). The molecular weight of the polypeptide portion was calculated to be 73,183. , 1972) gives a molecular weight of about 79,700 for each of the ~ subunits of human factor XIII. Near the C-terminus of the ~ subunit of factor XIII, there is an Arg-GlyAsp (RGD) sequence which is reported to be responsible for cell attachment of various proteins (Pierschbacher and Ruos1ahti, 1984).
