We have modified RNase inhibitor (RI) protein so that it no longer detectably binds pancreatic RNases but retains near-native affinity for human angiogenin (ANG). The K(i) value for RNase A is increased by a factor of >10(8), from 36 fM to >4 microM, and the selectivity factor for ANG is now >10(9). This dramatic change was achieved by remodeling the human(More)
The o-aminophenol-N,N,O-triacetic acid (APTRA) chelator is employed extensively as a metal-recognition moiety in fluorescent indicators for biological free Mg(2+), as well as in low-affinity indicators for the detection of high levels of cellular Ca(2+). Despite its widespread use in sensor design, the limited metal selectivity of this chelating moiety can(More)
