Post-translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins produced in vivo may be tissue, developmentally and/or disease specific. PTMs impact on the stability and function of proteins and offer a challenge to the commercial production of protein biotherapeutics. We have previously reported a marked deficit in galactosylation of oligosaccharides released from(More)
The thermally induced order-disorder transition of xanthan (extracellular bacterial polysaccharide from Xanthomonas campestris) has been investigated by optical rotation, differential scanning calorimetry, stopped-flow reaction kinetics and low-angle laser light scattering, and the results have been analysed in terms of Zimm -Bragg helix-coil transition(More)
A reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method with dual optical rotation/UV absorbance detection has been developed for the determination of enantiomeric purity of ephedrine hydrochloride and pseudoephedrine hydrochloride using an achiral column. The method gave a correlation coefficient of 0.9997 for the plot of log(optical rotation(More)
To test whether the presence of indolyl-3-acryloylglycine (IAG) is associated with autism, we analyzed urine from population-based, blinded cohorts. All children in York, UK with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), diagnosed using ICD-10 research diagnostic criteria, were invited to participate. Fifty-six children on the autism spectrum (mean age 9y 8mo, SD(More)
Active pixel sensor UV area imaging and capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection have been applied in an electrophoretically mediated microanalysis (EMMA) assay for substrate specificity of tyramine oxidase (Arthrobacter sp.). Use of the UV area imaging detector to monitor four windows in a capillary with three loops provided intrinsic(More)
A silica monolithic capillary column was linked to an open capillary of the same internal diameter via a Teflon sleeve to form a duplex column to investigate the combination of chromatography and electrophoresis in the mode of electrically assisted capillary liquid chromatography (eCLC). Using a commercial CE instrument with an 8.5 cm long, 100 microm i.d.(More)
Large perfusive silica beads (particle size 110 microm, through pore approximately 2 microm) held in place by the keystone effect were used as single-particle frits for the manufacture of particulate packed capillary columns. High-quality capillary electrochromatographic separations of a standard test mixture of alkylbenzenes were obtained over the full(More)
A wide range of molecules acting as apoptotic cell-associated ligands, phagocyte-associated receptors or soluble bridging molecules have been implicated within the complex sequential processes that result in phagocytosis and degradation of apoptotic cells. Intercellular adhesion molecule 3 (ICAM-3, also known as CD50), a human leukocyte-restricted(More)
Following the 1st IUIS/WHO Collaborative Study of monoclonal anti-IgG subclass antibodies, a panel of WHO Specificity Reference Reagents (SRR) was established [Jefferis, R., et al. (1985) Immunol. Lett., 10, 223]. At the time, the hope was expressed that further reagents particularly for IgG2, and other allotypic specificities would become available which(More)
UV imaging is capable of providing spatially and temporally resolved absorbance measurements, which is highly beneficial in drug diffusion, dissolution and release testing studies. For optimal planning and design of experiments, knowledge about the capabilities and limitations of the imaging system is required. The aim of this study was to characterize the(More)
