The purification of (R)-oxynitrilase (EC from Linum usitatissimum (flax) has been improved considerably. The enzyme is obtained from seedlings in 60% yield by fractional salt precipitation followed by ion-exchange and hydrophobic-interaction chromatography. Final gel-permeation chromatography yields a protein with a specific activity of 53(More)
The HYDE scoring function consistently describes hydrogen bonding, the hydrophobic effect and desolvation. It relies on HYdration and DEsolvation terms which are calibrated using octanol/water partition coefficients of small molecules. We do not use affinity data for calibration, therefore HYDE is generally applicable to all protein targets. HYDE reflects(More)
Double photoionization (DPI) and ionization-excitation (IE) of Li(2s) and Li(2p), state-prepared and aligned in a magneto-optical trap, were explored in a reaction microscope at the free-electron laser in Hamburg (FLASH). From 6 to 12 eV above threshold (homega = 85, 91 eV), total as well as differential DPI cross sections were observed to critically depend(More)
We developed a new empirical scoring function, HYDE, for the evaluation of protein-ligand complexes. HYDE estimates binding free energy based on two terms for dehydration and hydrogen bonding only. The essential feature of this scoring function is the integrated use of log P-derived atomic increments for the prediction of free dehydration energy and(More)
Anisotropic penetration of magnetic flux in MgB(2) films grown on vicinal sapphire substrates is investigated using magneto-optical imaging. Regular penetration above 10 K proceeds more easily along the substrate surface steps, the anisotropy of the critical current being 6%. At lower temperatures the penetration occurs via abrupt dendritic avalanches that(More)
