Distinct parental cytoplasms were combined in symmetric tetraploid hybrids of potato by somatic cell fusion. This allowed, in the presence of nearly isogenic nuclear genomes, to estimate the contribution of mitochondrial (mt) and chloroplast (cp) genomes to starch content. Analysis of mt-cp configurations in the complete gene pool of german potato cultivars(More)
Activity-based probes (ABPs) have found increasing use in functional proteomics studies. Recently, ABPs that can be employed in combination with click chemistry gained particular attention due to their flexible application in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, there is a continuous need for new ABPs that target small subsets of enzymes. We here report novel(More)
We present a simple and robust technique for extracting kinetic rate models and thermodynamic quantities from single-molecule time traces. Single-molecule analysis of complex kinetic sequences (SMACKS) is a maximum-likelihood approach that resolves all statistically relevant rates and also their uncertainties. This is achieved by optimizing one global(More)
Single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (smFRET) is a versatile tool for studying biomolecules in a quantitative manner. Multiple conformations within and interactions between biomolecules can be detected and their kinetics can be determined. Thus, smFRET has become an essential tool in enzymology. Ordinary two-color smFRET experiments can provide(More)
The function of the molecular chaperone Hsp90 depends on large conformational changes, the rearrangement of local motifs, and the binding and hydrolysis of ATP. The size and complexity of the Hsp90 system impedes the detailed investigation of their interplay using standard methods. To overcome this limitation, we developed a three-color single-molecule FRET(More)
