Mapping protein-protein interactions within a stable complex of DNA primase and DnaB helicase from Bacillus stearothermophilus.
For the first time, we demonstrate directly a stable complex between a bacterial DnaG (primase) and DnaB (helicase). Utilizing fragments of both proteins, we are able to dissect interactions withinExpand

Structure of the zinc-binding domain of Bacillus stearothermophilus DNA primase.
BACKGROUND DNA primases catalyse the synthesis of the short RNA primers that are required for DNA replication by DNA polymerases. Primases comprise three functional domains: a zinc-binding domainExpand

Room-Temperature Dissolution and Mechanistic Investigation of Cellulose in a Tetra-Butylammonium Acetate/Dimethyl Sulfoxide System
The dissolution of cellulose in tetrabutylammonium acetate (TBAA) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) mixed solvent was studied at room temperature (approximately 25 °C). The ratio of TBAA in the mixedExpand
