Primary hyperoxaluria type I is a severe kidney stone disease caused by mutations in the protein alanine:glyoxylate aminotransferase (AGT). Many patients have mutations in AGT that are not deleterious alone but act synergistically with a common minor allele polymorphic variant to impair protein folding, dimerization, or localization. Although studies(More)
The equilibrium unfolding properties of four model protein systems were characterized using SUPREX (stability of unpurified proteins from rates of H/D exchange). SUPREX is an H/D exchange- and mass spectrometry-based technique for measuring the free energy (DeltaGf) and m-value (deltaDeltaGf/delta[denaturant]) associated with the folding/unfolding reaction(More)
An H/D exchange- and MALDI mass spectrometry-based screening assay was applied to search for novel ligands that bind to cyclophilin A, a potential therapeutic and diagnostic target in lung cancer. The assay is based on stability of unpurified proteins from rates of H/D exchange (SUPREX), which exploits the H/D exchange properties of amide protons to measure(More)
A protease digestion strategy was incorporated into single-point stability of unpurified proteins from rates of H/D exchange (SUPREX), which is a hydrogen/deuterium (H/D) exchange- and mass spectrometry-based assay for the detection of protein-ligand binding. Single-point SUPREX is an abbreviated form of SUPREX in which protein-ligand binding interactions(More)
Diazeniumdiolate-modified sol-gel microarrays capable of releasing low levels of nitric oxide are reported as a viable means for improving the blood compatibility of a surface without fully modifying the underlying substrate. Several parameters are characterized including: (1) NO surface flux as a function of sol-gel composition and microarray geometry; (2)(More)
