The predicted structure has been calculated for a protein-based biosensor for inorganic phosphate (Pi), previously developed by some of us (Okoh et al., Biochemistry, 2006, 45, 14764). This is the phosphate binding protein from Escherichia coli labelled with two rhodamine fluorophores. Classical molecular dynamics and hybrid Car-Parrinello/molecular(More)
A set of four di-imine copper(II) complexes containing pyridine, pyrazine and/or imidazole moieties, [Cu(apyhist)H2O](2+) 1 (apyhist = 2-(1H-imidazol-4-yl)-N-(1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethylidene)ethanamine), [Cu(apzhist)OH](+) 2 (apzhist = 2-(1H-imidazol-4-yl)-N-(1-(pyrazin-2-yl)ethylidene)ethanamine), [Cu(apyepy)OH](+) 3 (apyepy =(More)
In this work, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) spectroscopy is used to study differences in the nuclear quadrupole interactions of Cd probes in DNA molecules of mice infected with the Y-strain of Trypanosoma cruzi. The possibility of investigating the local genetic alterations in DNA, which occur along generations of mice infected with T. cruzi, using(More)
CD and EPR were used to characterize interactions of oxindole-Schiff base copper(II) complexes with human serum albumin (HSA). These imine ligands form very stable complexes with copper, and can efficiently compete for this metal ion towards the specific N-terminal binding site of the protein, consisting of the amino acid sequence Asp-Ala-His. Relative(More)
Structural and electronic properties of [C12H24S6X], [C13H26S6OX], and [C14H28S6OX] (X: Ag(+), Cd(2+)) crown thioether complexes were investigated within the framework of the density functional theory (DFT) using the projector augmented wave (PAW) method. The theoretical results were compared with time-differential perturbed γ-γ angular correlations (TDPAC)(More)
