High-resolution crystal structure of the non-specific lipid-transfer protein from maize seedlings.
BACKGROUND The movement of lipids between membranes is aided by lipid-transfer proteins (LTPs). Some LTPs exhibit broad specificity, transferring many classes of lipids, and are termed non-specificExpand

Growth dynamics and gas transport mechanism of nanobubbles in graphene liquid cells.
Formation, evolution and vanishing of bubbles are common phenomena in nature, which can be easily observed in boiling or falling water, carbonated drinks, gas-forming electrochemical reactions and soExpand

Mutational analysis of the ATP‐binding site in HslU, the ATPase component of HslVU protease in Escherichia coli
HslU is the ATPase component of the ATP‐dependent HslVU protease in Escherichia coli. To gain an insight into the structure and function of HslU, site‐directed mutagenesis was performed to generate aExpand

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering of 4-aminobenzenethiol in Ag sol: relative intensity of a1- and b2-type bands invariant against aggregation of Ag nanoparticles.
4-Aminobenzenthiol (4-ABT) is an unusual molecule, showing variable surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectra depending upon measurement conditions. In an effort to reduce ambiguity and addExpand

Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering of 4-Aminobenzenethiol on Ag and Au: pH Dependence of b2-Type Bands
The surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of 4-aminobenzenehtiol (4-ABT) has seen a surge of interest recently, since its SERS spectral features are dependent not only on the kinds of SERSExpand

Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Characteristics of 4-Aminobenzenethiol Derivatives Adsorbed on Silver
The most unusual feature in the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of 4-aminobenzenethiol (4-ABT) is the appearance of b2-type bands in the region of 1100–1500 cm–1, which, in recent years, hasExpand

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering of 4-aminobenzenethiol on gold: the concept of threshold energy in charge transfer enhancement.
Some threshold energy is required for 4-aminobenzenethiol to occupy the gold surface sites capable of leading to the appearance of surface-enhanced Raman scattering peaks via a charge transferExpand

Ag Nanoparticle-Mediated Raman Scattering of 4-Aminobenzenethiol on a Pt Substrate
Raman scattering measurements were conducted for 4-aminobenzenethiol (4-ABT) monolayers assembled on a macroscopically smooth Pt substrate. At the beginning, no Raman peak was detected for 4-ABT onExpand

Electromagnetic field enhancement in the gap between two Au nanoparticles: the size of hot site probed by surface-enhanced Raman scattering.
We have estimated the apparent size of the 'hot' site for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) located within the gap between two spherical Au nanoparticles. Initially, 55-nm sized AuExpand

Surface Potential of Au Nanoparticles Affected by Layer-by-Layer Deposition of Polyelectrolytes: A Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Study
We illustrate by surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) how the surface potential of Au nanoparticles is affected by the layer-by-layer (LbL) deposition of polyelectrolytes onto them. For thatExpand
