24164736 observations provide evidence for an involvement of QC in Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis and cognitive decline by QC-catalyzed pGlu-Abeta formation
23207485 this study demonistrated that QPCT mRNAand protein from mononuclear cells correlated with theseverity of dementia.
23183267 Upregulation of QPCT expression is associated with thyroid carcinomas.
21671571 This study presents a first comparison of two mammalian QCs (human and mouse) containing typical, conserved post-translational modifications.
21301857 The resilts of this studt provided histopathological evidence for QC being a prerequisite for pE-Abeta pathology in vivo and further underline the therapeutic potential of QC inhibition in Alzheimer Disease.
21288892 Upon binding to PBD150, a large loop movement in gQC allows the inhibitor to be tightly held in its active site primarily by hydrophobic interactions.
20383514 This study demonstrated that glutaminyl cyclase expression and pE-Abeta formation in subcortical brain regions( Edinger-Westphal nucleus, locus coeruleus and nucleus basalis Meynert) affected in Alzheimer's disease.
19804409 Human isoQC proteins displayed a broad substrate specificity and preference for hydrophobic substrates, similar to the related QC.
18486145 Golgi apparatus retention implies a "housekeeping" protein maturation machinery conducting glycosylation and pyroglutamyl formation. For these isoenzymes, apparently similar strategies evolved to retain the proteins in the Golgi complex.
18470930 The computations outline the important role of Trp329 in helping the substrate binding process and stabilizing the cyclization transition state.
