Anti-hyperglycemic activity of a TGR5 agonist isolated from Olea europaea.
Supramolecular Self-Assembly of Lipid Derivatives on Carbon Nanotubes
Self-assemblies were obtained from mixed micelles of SDS and different water-insoluble double-chain lipids after dialysis of the surfactant and could be further exploited for the development of new biosensors and bioelectronic nanomaterials.
Binding sites of quinones in photosynthetic bacterial reaction centers investigated by light-induced FTIR difference spectroscopy: assignment of the interactions of each carbonyl of QA in Rhodobacter
Light-induced QA-/QA FTIR difference spectra of the photoreduction of the primary quinone (QA) have been obtained for Rhodobacter sphaeroides reaction centers (RCs) reconstituted with ubiquinone (Q3)
Helical Crystallization of Proteins on Carbon Nanotubes: A First Step towards the Development of New Biosensors.
Two distinct proteins, streptavidin and HupR, bind and form regular helical arrays on the surface of multiwalled carbon nanotubes under appropriate conditions (see picture). The decoration of the
Ligand- and DNA-induced dissociation of RXR tetramers.
In vitro data support a model in which RXR tetramers could serve as an inactive pool with the dual function of rapidly supplying large amounts of RXR heterodimerization partners upon 9c-RA generation; and allowing RXR homodimer formation on "accessible" cognate response elements in the absence of 9 c-RA.
Calcium-independent cytoskeleton disassembly induced by BAPTA.
It is shown that in most cell types BAPTA has a potent actin and microtubule depolymerizing activity and that this activity is completely independent of Ca2+ chelation, and proposed that D-BAPTA should be systematically introduced in calcium signalling experiments, as controls for the known and unknown calcium independent effects of BAPta.
Oculoparalytic Illusion : Visual-Field Dependent Spatial Mislocalizations by Humans Partially Paralyzed with Curare
In darkness, observers partially paralyzed with curare make large (> 20 degrees) gazeand dosage-dependent errors in visually localizing eye-level-horizontal and median planes, in matching the
