Monoclonal antibodies that could not bind native tetramers of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) but could bind to dimeric, monomeric, or denatured forms of GAPDH were used to investigate its intracellular localization. These antibodies distinctly stained the nucleus in growing HeLa cells. In the cytoplasm, non-native GAPDH was colocalized(More)
Our interest in the modifying influence of low-molecular-weight organic compounds on the hydration shell of biopolymers is due to a well-known fact that the former can act as regulators of the enzymatic activity changing the hydration shell of the latter. Dioxane was chosen because of its wide application in non-aqueous biocatalysis. In the present study,(More)
Tissue specific isoforms of human glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, somatic (GAPD) and sperm-specific (GAPDS), have been reported to display different levels of both stability and catalytic activity. Here we apply MD simulations to investigate molecular basis of this phenomenon. The protein is a tetramer where each subunit consists of two domains -(More)
The article presents the structural principles of microwave-induced formation of new gel type from pectic rhamnogalacturonan I (RG-I). The backbone of gel-forming RG-I does not contain consecutive galacturonic residues and modifying groups that can be the cause of junction zone formation as it occurs in course of classical ways of pectin gelation. Microwave(More)
Within the family of plant cell wall polysaccharides rhamnogalacturonans I are the most diverse and structurally complex members. In present study we characterize the 3-dimensional structures and dynamic features of the constituents of RG-I along MD trajectories. It is demonstrated that extended threefold helical structure of the rhamnogalacturonan linear(More)
