Basic residues in the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus gag matrix domain regulate intracellular trafficking and capsid-membrane interactions.
Atlanta, United States. In J Virol, 2007
Electron microscopy of mutant Gag-expressing cells revealed four distinct phenotypes: K16A and K20A immature capsids accumulated on and budded into intracellular vesicles; R10A, K27A, and R22A capsid transport was arrested at the cellular cortical actin network, while K25A immature capsids were dispersed throughout the cytoplasm and appeared to be defective at an earlier stage of intracellular transport; and the remaining mutant (K33A and K39A) capsids accumulated at the inner surface of the plasma membrane.
A single arginyl residue in plastocyanin and in cytochrome c(6) from the cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. PCC 7119 is required for efficient reduction of photosystem I.
Sevilla, Spain. In J Biol Chem, 2001
Other mutations concern specific residues of plastocyanin either at its positively charged east face (D49K, H57A, H57E, K58A, K58E, Y83A, and Y83F) or at its north hydrophobic pole (L12A, K33A, and K33E).
