In the process of protein synthesis, the translating ribosomes of eukaryotic cells form polyribosomes that are found to be multiplex functional complexes possessing elements of ordered spatial organization. As revealed by a number of electron microscopy studies, the predominant visible configurations of the eukaryotic polyribosomes are circles (circular(More)
Production of integral membrane proteins (IMPs) in a folded state is a key prerequisite for their functional and structural studies. In cell-free (CF) expression systems membrane mimicking components could be added to the reaction mixture that promotes IMP production in a soluble form. Here lipid-protein nanodiscs (LPNs) of different lipid compositions(More)
In present work the interaction of two TM α-helices of the ErbB3 receptor tyrosine kinase from the ErbB or HER family (residues 639-670) was studied by means of NMR spectroscopy in a membrane-mimicking environment provided by the DPC micelles. The ErbB3 TM segment appeared to form a parallel symmetric dimer in a left-handed orientation. The interaction(More)
A coupled cell-free expression system (CECF) for the production of the transmembrane domain of the human receptor tyrosine kinase ErbB3 (residues from 632 to 675) has been developed based on the Escherichia coli S30 extract. The synthesis of the domain in the soluble form in the presence of various detergents and in the form of an insoluble precipitate of(More)
The emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria is limiting the effectiveness of commonly used antibiotics, which spurs a renewed interest in revisiting older and poorly studied drugs. Streptogramins A is a class of protein synthesis inhibitors that target the peptidyl transferase center (PTC) on the large subunit of the ribosome. In this work, we have(More)
The cell-free expression system based on bacterial extract S30 from E. coli for production of the transmembrane domain of human receptor tyrosine kinase ErbB3 (residues 632-675) was developed. The synthesis of the domain in the soluble form in the presence of detergents and in the form of the translation mixture precipitate was studied. The protocols of(More)
