Prof. Qunzhao Wang, Prof. Melanie A. Priestman and Prof. David S. Lawrence Monitoring of Protein Arginine Deiminase Activity by Using Fluorescence Quenching: Multicolor Visualization of Citrullination Angewandte Chemie International Edition 52
Colorful: The protein arginine deiminases are members of the enzyme family that catalyze posttranslational histone modification and consequent changes in gene expression. A visual readout of catalytic activity was developed that yields large fluorescence changes across the visible spectrum. The use of different fluorophores (see picture) enables the simultaneous multicolor monitoring of a mixture of histone-modifying enzymes.
