  3. 3. Thiopurine S-methyltransferase - characterization of variants and ligand binding

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Annica Blissing; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thiopurine S-methyltransferase TPMT ; protein stability; enzyme kinetics; ligand binding; isothermal titration calorimetry ITC ; 8-anilinonaphthalene-1-sulfonic acid ANS ;

    Abstract : Thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) belongs to the Class I S-adenosylmethionine-dependent methyltransferase (SAM-MT) super family of structurally related proteins. Common to the members of this large protein family is the catalysis of methylation reactions using S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) as a methyl group donor, although SAM-MTs act on a wide range of different substrates and carry out numerous biologically important functions.
