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)
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)
Methylolation and condensation products formed in caprolactam-formaldehyde reaction mixtures have been identified using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS). Previously unreported side-products were also detected. All of the reaction products were separated by micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) and high performance liquid(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)
Two mouse hybridoma antibodies, G6 and H1, with specificity for idiotypic determinants on the heavy chain of human IgM-RF have been produced. Idiotopes recognized by G6 and H1 were expressed on 5/12 and 2/12 RF paraproteins from the Wa idiotype group respectively, but not on paraproteins lacking rheumatoid factor (RF) activity. Inhibition experiments(More)
Two IgG4 paraproteins having heavy chains of normal molecular weight are shown to be antigenically distinct in their reactivity profiles with 18 monoclonal antibodies having specificity for the IgG2 or IgG4 subclasses. One protein expresses IgG2 and IgG4 epitopes within the C gamma 2 domain. A second protein is deficient in the expression of IgG4(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)
Human IgM rheumatoid factors have been classified into major (Wa) and minor (Po) idiotypically cross-reactive families on the basis of reactivity with polyclonal anti-idotypic antisera. Extensive structural studies have revealed that RFs from the Wa CRI family have homologous light chains. The structural basis of this CRI however is not known. In this study(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)
