Disease relevance of Mup5

  • mAbs produced by immunization of BALB/c mice with Streptococcus pyogenes M type 5 membranes were further characterized for their reaction with S. pyogenes pep M5 protein and with autoantigens associated with human cell lines. mAbs 36.2.2 and 54.2.8 simultaneously reacted with M protein and a membrane protein(s) of S. pyogenes [1].

High impact information on Mup5

  • Immunization of BALB/c mice with each of the overlapping M5 peptides revealed myosin-cross-reactive B-cell epitopes throughout the A and C repeat regions and one major epitope in the B repeat region containing the previously reported Gln-Lys-Ser-Lys-Gln (QKSKQ) epitope [2].
  • Molecular analysis of human cardiac myosin-cross-reactive B- and T-cell epitopes of the group A streptococcal M5 protein [2].
  • In mouse the atropine-resistant and therefore the nonadrenergic, noncholinergic component of contractile response to EFS was reduced by M-5, M-14 and propiverine, but was hardly affected by M-6 [3].
  • Propiverine, M-5 and M-14 reduced the maximum CCh effect, suggesting at least one additional mode of action [3].
  • By polymerase chain reaction, we identified two cDNA segments encoding MUP 4 and MUP 5 genes in the nose [4].

Biological context of Mup5

  • Hydroxylation of Am-80 to yield 7-hydroxy-Am-80 (M-4) and 6-hydroxy-Am-80 (M-3), which lead to the formation of 6-oxo-Am-80 (M-5), were commonly observed in all animal species [5].

Anatomical context of Mup5

  • Cholinergic agents elicit prominent smooth muscle contractions via stimulation of muscarinic receptors that comprise five distinct subtypes (M1-M5) [6].

Associations of Mup5 with chemical compounds

  • We compared the effects of propiverine, three of its metabolites (M-5, M-6, M-14) and atropine in human, pig and mouse urinary bladder preparations in order to elucidate the nature of a possible additional mode of action [3].
