With the aim of developing a new enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay test to detect autoantibodies in the sera of rheumatoid arthritis patients with a high sensitivity and specificity using synthetic citrullinated peptides of fibrin (which is abundant in rheumatoid synovium) as antigenic substract, peptides belonging to alpha- and beta-fibrin chains were(More)
High-yield production of soluble protein is a common concern in diverse fields of biotechnology. In this study, a strategy of using an engineered nucleotide sequence of ubiquitin for enhancing the production of soluble proteins in a cell-free synthesis system is presented. When examined for a series of proteins that otherwise were poorly expressed,(More)
The rapidly evolving cloning and sequencing technologies have enabled understanding of genomic structure of parasite genomes, opening up new ways of combatting parasite-related diseases. To make the most of the exponentially accumulating genomic data, however, it is crucial to analyze the proteins encoded by these genomic sequences. In this study, we(More)
