Summary of "Proteome-Wide Analysis of Cysteine S-Sulfenylation Using a Benzothiazine-Based Probe."

Oxidation of a protein cysteinyl thiol (Cys-SH) to S-sulfenic acid (Cys-SOH) by a reactive oxygen species (e.g., hydrogen peroxide), which is termed protein S-sulfenylation, is a reversible post-translational modification that plays a crucial role in redox regulation of protein function in various biological processes. Due to its intrinsically labile nature, protein S-sulfenylation cannot be directly detected or analyzed. Chemoselective probing has been the method of choice for analyzing S-sulfenylated proteins either in vitro or in situ, as it allows stabilization and direct detection of this transient oxidative intermediate. However, it remains challenging to globally pinpoint the specific S-sulfenylated cysteine sites on complex proteomes and to quantify their dynamic changes upon oxidative stress. This unit describes how a benzothiazine-based chemoselective probe called BTD and mass spectrometry based chemoproteomics can be used to globally and site-specifically identify and quantify protein S-sulfenylation. © 2018 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

A zinc-binding domain defined by the sequence Cysteine-X2-Cysteine-X(9-39)-Cysteine-X(l-3)-His-X(2-3)-Cysteine-X2-Cysteine -X(4-48)-Cysteine-X2-Cysteine, where X is any amino acid. The RING finger motif binds two atoms of zinc, with each zinc atom ligated tetrahedrally by either four cysteines or three cysteines and a histidine. The motif also forms into a unitary structure with a central cross-brace region and is found in many proteins that are involved in protein-protein interactions. The acronym RING stands for Really Interesting New Gene.

An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-CYSTEINE to 3-sulfinoalanine (3-sulfino-L-alanine) in the CYSTEINE metabolism and TAURINE and hypotaurine metabolic pathways.

Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

ENDOPEPTIDASES which have a cysteine involved in the catalytic process. This group of enzymes is inactivated by CYSTEINE PROTEINASE INHIBITORS such as CYSTATINS and SULFHYDRYL REAGENTS.
