Current knowledge on enzymatic PET degradation and its possible application to waste stream management and other fields
Enzymatic hydrolysis of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) has been the subject of extensive previous research that can be grouped into two categories, viz. enzymatic surface modification of polyesterExpand

A novel Ca2+-activated, thermostabilized polyesterase capable of hydrolyzing polyethylene terephthalate from Saccharomonospora viridis AHK190
Only two polyethylene glycol terephthalate (PET)-degrading enzymes have been reported, and their mechanism for the biochemical degradation of PET remains unclear. To identify a novel PET-degradingExpand

Segmental flexibility and avidity of IgM in the interaction of polyvalent antigens.
We prepared IgG and IgM with identical combining sites to a hapten, (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl)acetic acid (NP), and used surface plasmon resonance to evaluate the association constants (Ka) inExpand

Quantitative analysis by surface plasmon resonance of CD28 interaction with cytoplasmic adaptor molecules Grb2, Gads and p85 PI3K
CD28 surface receptors provide co-stimulatory signals that are required for full T cell activation. The CD28 cytoplasmic region has one YMNM and two PXXP motifs as a functional motif. Upon CD28Expand

Cloning and sequencing of endo-1,3-β-glucanase from Cellulosimicrobium cellulans
A gene encoding endo-1,3-β-glucanase was cloned from Cellulosimicrobium cellulans DK-1 genomic DNA. Analysis of the deduced amino acid sequence revealed that the full-length enzyme has 383 aminoExpand

Structure of β-Glucan Oligomer from Laminarin and Its Effect on Human Monocytes to Inhibit the Proliferation of U937 Cells
We analyzed the human monocyte-stimulating ability of laminarin from Eisenia bicyclis, lichenan from Cetraria islandica, and their oligomers depolymerized with endo-1,3-β-glucanase from ArthrobacterExpand

Metal-ion-dependent GFP emission in vivo by combining a circularly permutated green fluorescent protein with an engineered metal-ion-binding coiled-coil.
Coordination of metal ions significantly contributes to protein structures and functions. Here we constructed a fusion protein, consisting of a de novo designed, metal-ion-binding, trimericExpand

Adaptive mutations alter antibody structure and dynamics during affinity maturation.
While adaptive mutations can bestow new functions on proteins via the introduction or optimization of reactive centers, or other structural changes, a role for the optimization of protein dynamicsExpand
