Possible Interaction: Arginine and Guanidines





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Arginine , an essential amino acid found in many interaction interfaces, is capable of an impressive range of interactions via its guanidinium group.

This is due to the ability of the orientationally amphiphilic guanidinium cations to disrupt various secondary structural motifs of proteins by pairing promiscuously with both hydrophobic and hydrophilic groups, including guanidinium-containing side chains of arginines.

Recent experiments suggest that the dissociation constant for arginine is much higher than 12.5, which explains why the arginine guanidinium group retains its positive charge under all physiological conditions.

Therefore, the group interaction involved by guanidine has changed the fluorescence properties of L-arginine aggregates in LAP solution, indicating that the specific interaction between phosphate and guanidine exists in LAP molecule.

The guanidinium and carboxylate groups of substrates are tightly bound, which explains activity of PPAD against arginines at C-termini but not within peptides.

The inhibitory nature of guanidine and arginine toward the esterase activity is reported.

Interestingly, N-acetylated arginine, which lacks the α-amino group, showed a weaker suppressive effect on protein aggregation than Arg, even at neutral pH. These results indicate that both positively charged α-amino group and guanidinium group play important roles in suppressing heat-induced protein aggregation by Arg.

The concentration of L-arginine (0.05 nmol/mg tissue) is significantly lower than the other guanidines.

A similar inhibition of macrophage leishmanicidal activity and of NO2- release was observed using media treated with arginase (which converts L-arg to urea and ornithine), or supplemented with NG-monomethyl-L-arg or guanidine (which inhibit the conversion of L-arg to nitrogen oxidation products).
