The process of mononucleosome assembly mediated by histone chaperone NAP1 was investigated using DNA fragments 146 and 207 bp in length containing the Lytechinus variegatus 5 S rDNA nucleosome positioning sequence. A quantitative description was derived using gel electrophoresis and fluorescent anisotropy data. First, NAP1-bound H3.H4 was released forming a(More)
NAP1 (nucleosome assembly protein 1) is a histone chaperone that has been described to bind predominantly to the histone H2A.H2B dimer in the cell during shuttling of histones into the nucleus, nucleosome assembly/remodeling, and transcription. Here it was examined how NAP1 interacts with chromatin fibers isolated from HeLa cells. NAP1 induced a reversible(More)
Modifications like asparagine deamidation, aspartate isomerization, methionine oxidation, and lysine glycation are typical degradations for recombinant antibodies. For the identification and functional evaluation of antibody critical quality attributes (CQAs) derived from chemical modifications in the complementary-determining regions (CDRs) and the(More)
The conformation of mononucleosome complexes reconstituted with recombinant core histones on a 614-basepair-long DNA fragment containing the Xenopus borealis 5S rRNA nucleosome positioning sequence was studied by scanning/atomic force microscopy in the absence or presence of linker histone H1. Imaging without prior fixation was conducted with air-dried(More)
Quality by design (QbD) is a global regulatory initiative with the goal of enhancing pharmaceutical development through the proactive design of pharmaceutical manufacturing process and controls to consistently deliver the intended performance of the product. The principles of pharmaceutical development relevant to QbD are described in the ICH guidance(More)
