The Canadian light source is a 2.9 GeV national synchrotron radiation facility located on the University of Saskatchewan campus in Saskatoon. The small-gap in-vacuum undulator illuminated beamline, 08ID-1, together with the bending magnet beamline, 08B1-1, constitute the Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF). The CMCF provides service to(More)
The title compound, C(56)H(83)N(9)O(11)S·2C(4)H(10)O·H(2)O, is a butanol-water solvate of the cyclo-linopeptide cyclo(Metsulfone(1)-Leu(2)-Ile(3)-Pro(4)-Pro(5)-Phe(6)-Phe(7)-Val(8)-Ile(9)) (henceforth referred to as CLP-K) which was isolated from flax oil. All the amino acid residues are in an l configuration based on the CORN rule. The cyclic nona-peptide(More)
The aim of this work was to elucidate the structure-activity relationship of new peptide-modified gemini surfactant-based carriers. Glycyl-lysine modified gemini surfactants that differ in the length and degree of unsaturation of their alkyl tail were used to engineer DNA nano-assemblies. To probe the optimal nitrogen to phosphate (N/P) ratio in the(More)
BACKGROUND Curcumin analogs, including the novel compound NC 2067, are potent cytotoxic agents that suffer from poor solubility, and hence, low bioavailability. Cyclodextrin-based carriers can be used to encapsulate such agents. In order to understand the interaction between the two molecules, the physicochemical properties of the host-guest complexes of NC(More)
The type two secretion system is a large, trans-envelope apparatus that secretes toxins across the outer membrane of many Gram-negative bacteria. In Aeromonas hydrophila, ExeA interacts with peptidoglycan and forms a heteromultimeric complex with ExeB that is required for assembly of the ExeD secretin of the secretion system in the outer membrane. While the(More)
Vitrification of bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) is not as successful as bovine embryos, due to oocyte's complex structure and chilling sensitivity. Synchrotron X-ray diffraction (SXRD), a powerful method to study crystal structure and phase changes, was used to detect the glass or ice formation in water, tissue culture medium (TCM)-199,(More)
The title compound, C(56)H(83)N(9)O(9)S·3CH(3)OH, is a methanol tris-olvate of the cyclo-linopeptide cyclo(Met(1)-Leu(2)-Ile(3)-Pro(4)-Pro(5)-Phe(6)-Phe(7)-Val(8)-Ile(9)) (henceforth referred to as CLP-B), which was isolated from flaxseed oil. All the amino acid residues are in an l-configuration based on the CORN rule. The cyclic nona-peptide exhibits(More)
