α-Selective Lysine Ligation and Application in Chemical Synthesis of Interferon Gamma.

Summary of "α-Selective Lysine Ligation and Application in Chemical Synthesis of Interferon Gamma."

A traceless β-mercaptan-assisted α-selective ligation of N-terminal lysine-containing peptides has been developed. In this ligation-desulfurization-based protocol, the ε-amine of lysine is free of protection, thus improving the overall synthetic efficiency and avoiding harsh reactions in preparing large peptides and proteins. The applicability of this methodology has been demonstrated in the synthesis of an acid-labile therapeutic protein, interferon gamma, and the anticancer activity of synthetic protein has also been evaluated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The assay of INTERFERON-GAMMA released from lymphocytes after their exposure to a specific test antigen, to check for IMMUNOLOGIC MEMORY resulting from a previous exposure to the antigen. The amount of interferon-gamma released is usually assayed by an ENZYME-LINKED IMMUNOSORBENT ASSAY.

A type II interferon produced by recombinant DNA technology. It is similar to the interferon secreted by lymphocytes and has antiviral and antineoplastic activity.

The major interferon produced by mitogenically or antigenically stimulated LYMPHOCYTES. It is structurally different from TYPE I INTERFERON and its major activity is immunoregulation. It has been implicated in the expression of CLASS II HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in cells that do not normally produce them, leading to AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.

An interferon regulatory factor that recruits STAT1 PROTEIN and STAT2 PROTEIN heterodimers to interferon-stimulated response elements and functions as an immediate-early protein.

A multimeric complex that functions as a ligand-dependent transcription factor. ISGF3 is assembled in the CYTOPLASM and translocated to the CELL NUCLEUS in response to INTERFERON signaling. It consists of ISGF3-GAMMA and ISGF3-ALPHA, and it regulates expression of many interferon-responsive GENES.
