Genetic engineering enables the construction of gene man Genome Project (5), efficient and robust production and purification strategies are necessary (6). For fusions resulting in fusion proteins having the combined properties of the original gene products. Fusion industrial production of recombinant proteins, simple and fast purification methods(More)
Key GaN HEMT front-end circuits for next generation AESA radar/EW applications are presented. The circuits are an S-band 20 W MMIC HPA reaching 50 % measured PAE, a two-stage S-band MMIC LNA showing a measured NF of 1.3 dB, and a DC-18 GHz SPDTs showing a measured insertion loss of less than 2 dB at 18 GHz. Furthermore, a 2–18 GHz front-end circuit(More)
Semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) belongs to a ubiquitous family of copper-containing amine oxidases (CuAOs). SSAO is also known as vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) and has been identified as one of the adhesion molecules involved in the leukocyte-extravasation process. The structure of a truncated soluble form of human SSAO has been solved(More)
Elevated semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) activity has been observed in several human conditions, eg, diabetes, and it has been speculated that SSAO contributes to the development of vasculopathies associated with this disease. To investigate in vivo consequences of elevated expression of SSAO in vascular tissues, we have developed a transgenic(More)
11beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11beta-HSD1) is an intraluminally oriented, endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-bound enzyme catalyzing the interconversion between inactive cortisone and hormonally active cortisol. Heterologous production of 11beta-HSD1, devoid of its N-terminal transmembrane segment, is possible but yields only small amounts of soluble(More)
A dual affinity fusion approach has been used to study the expression and secretion of labile recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli. Here we show that three small eukaryotic proteins (human proinsulin, a thioredoxin homologous domain of rat protein disulfide isomerase, and the extracellular domain of the alpha 1.2-chain of a human T-cell receptor) are(More)
Formation of biomineral structures is increasingly attributed to directed growth of a mineral phase from an amorphous precursor on an organic matrix. While many in vitro studies have used calcite formation on organothiol self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) as a model system to investigate this process, they have generally focused on the stability of amorphous(More)
The construction and characterization of a combinatorial library of a solvent-exposed surface of an alpha-helical domain derived from a bacterial receptor is described. Using a novel solid-phase approach, the library was assembled in a directed and successive manner utilizing single-stranded oligonucleotides containing multiple random substitutions for the(More)
Human semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) is a homodimeric copper-containing monoamine oxidase that occurs in both a membrane-bound and a soluble form. SSAO is also known as vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1). A truncated soluble form of human SSAO (comprising residues 29-763) was expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells and purified to(More)
