Regulation of ribonuclease expression by estradiol in Rana catesbeiana (Bullfrog)

Multiple ribonucleases are widely found in living organisms, but the function and regulation of individual ribonucleases are still not clear. In the present study, we found that one oocytic ribonuclease, RC‐RNase, is developmentally expressed in the liver and stored in the oocyte of the bullfrog, while another ribonuclease, RC‐RNase L1, is constitutively expressed and retained in...

The structural integrity exerted by N‐terminal pyroglutamate is crucial for the cytotoxicity of frog ribonuclease from Rana pipiens

Onconase, a cytotoxic ribonuclease from Rana pipiens, possesses pyroglutamate (Pyr) at the N‐terminus and has a substrate preference for uridine–guanine (UG). To identify residues responsible for onconase’s cytotoxicity, we cloned the rpr gene from genomic DNA and expressed it in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3). The recombinant onconase with Met at the N‐terminus had reduced...

Purification and cloning of cytotoxic ribonucleases from Rana catesbeiana (bullfrog)

Ribonucleases with antitumor activity are mainly found in the oocytes and embryos of frogs, but the role of these ribonucleases in frog development is not clear. Moreover, most frog ribonuclease genes have not been cloned and characterized. In the present study, a group of ribonucleases were isolated from Rana catesbeiana (bullfrog). These ribonucleases in mature oocytes, namely...
