Cloning, characterization and regulation of a family of phi class glutathione transferases from wheat
Six phi (F) class glutathione transferases (GSTs) were cloned from bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) treated with the herbicide safener fenchlorazole ethyl and named TaGSTF1–6. Recombinant TaGSTFsExpand

Copper signalling: causes and consequences
Copper-containing enzymes perform fundamental functions by activating dioxygen (O2) and therefore allowing chemical energy-transfer for aerobic metabolism. The copper-dependence of O2 transport,Expand

Inclusion complex formation of ionic liquids and other cationic organic compounds with cucurbit[7]uril studied by 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole fluorescent probe.
The encapsulation of 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) in the cucurbit[7]uril (CB7) cavity was studied by absorption, fluorescence, and NMR spectroscopic methods in aqueous solution. The profoundExpand
