Citrate bridges between mineral platelets in bone
Significance Bone contains ∼2% wt citrate; however, its role in bone remains a much-debated question. We propose a new structure for bone mineral in which citrate in hydrated layers forms bridgesExpand

Novel “3-D spacer” all fibre piezoelectric textiles for energy harvesting applications
The piezoelectric effect in poly(vinylidene fluoride), PVDF, was discovered over four decades ago and since then, significant work has been carried out aiming at the production of high β-phase fibresExpand

The mineral phase of calcified cartilage: its molecular structure and interface with the organic matrix.
We have studied the atomic level structure of mineralized articular cartilage with heteronuclear solid-state NMR, our aims being to identify the inorganic species present at the surfaces of theExpand

Binding of a calcium sensitizer, bepridil, to cardiac troponin C. A fluorescence stopped-flow kinetic, circular dichroism, and proton nuclear magnetic resonance study.
Stopped-flow fluorescence kinetic measurements, circular dichroism (CD), and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy at 360 MHz have been used to study the interaction of the calcium-channelExpand

The effect of sample freezing on proton magic‐angle spinning NMR spectra of biological tissue
Magic‐angle spinning (MAS) has recently been shown to enhance spectral resolution in NMR examinations of intact biological tissue ex vivo. This work demonstrates that freezing certain tissue samplesExpand

Proton nuclear Overhauser effect study of the structure of a deoxyoligonucleotide duplex in aqueous solution.
Nuclear Overhauser enhancements (NOEs) have been observed between some of the nonexchangeable protons of the self-complementary octanucleoside heptaphosphate d(G-G-T-A-T-A-C-C) in conditions underExpand

Determination of the interaction of ADP and dADP with copper(II), manganese(II) and lanthanide(III) ions by nuclear-magnetic-resonance spectroscopy.
The aqueous solution conformation of the 1:1 complexes of ADP and dADP bound to a lanthanide ion have been determined by examination of the dipolar shifts and induced relaxation at pH 6.4. ApparentExpand

Conformation of the cytoplasmic domain of phospholamban by NMR and CD.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy have been used to characterize the conformation of the putative cytoplasmic domain of phospholamban (PLB), an oligomericExpand
