Transfer of molecular property tensors in cartesian coordinates: A new algorithm for simulation of vibrational spectra
A direct transfer of Cartesian molecular force fields (FF) and electric property tensors is tested on model systems and compared to transfer in internal coordinates with an aim to improve simulationExpand
Coiled coil peptides as universal linkers for the attachment of recombinant proteins to polymer therapeutics.
This approach offers a well-defined, specific, and nondestructive universal method for the preparation of protein (antibody)-targeted polymer drug and gene carriers designed for cell-specific delivery. Expand
Thermostability of multidomain proteins: Elongation factors EF‐Tu from Escherichia coli and Bacillus stearothermophilus and their chimeric forms
Recombinant mesophilic Escherichia coli (Ec) and thermophilic Bacillus stearothermophilus (Bst) elongation factors EF‐Tus, their isolated G‐domains, and six chimeric EF‐Tus composed of domains ofExpand
Lucifensin, a Novel Insect Defensin of Medicinal Maggots: Synthesis and Structural Study
The total chemical synthesis of this peptide of 40 amino acid residues and three intramolecular disulfide bridges by using three different protocols yielded a peptide with a pattern of disulfides bridges identical to that of native lucifensin. Expand
Lasiocepsin, a novel cyclic antimicrobial peptide from the venom of eusocial bee Lasioglossum laticeps (Hymenoptera: Halictidae)
The synthetic lasiocepsin possessed antimicrobial activity against both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria, antifungal activity against Candida albicans, and no hemolytic activity against human erythrocytes. Expand
Vibrational CD of polypeptides. XII. Reevaluation of the fourier transform vibrational CD of poly(γ‐benzyl‐L‐glutamate)
It is found that elimination of the ellipsoidal collection mirror before the detector and its replacement by a lens leads to a significant improvement in the absorption artifact problem often seen previously in FTIR‐VCD. Expand
A Solution to the Artifact Problem in Fourier Transform Vibrational Circular Dichroism
Using a newly constructed FT-IR vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) instrument, we have found that elimination of the ellipsoidal collection mirror before the detector and its replacement by a lensExpand
