Interaction of presequence with human translocase of the inner membrane of mitochondria Tim50.
The preprotein translocase of the inner membrane of mitochondria (TIM23 complex) is the main entry gate for proteins of the matrix and the inner membrane. Tim50 is a major receptor for transportingExpand
Synthesis and characterization of a lamellar hydroxyapatite/DNA nanohybrid
Abstract Two-dimensional layered materials exhibit desired functionalities when being used as gene delivery materials. In this study, a novel gene delivering vector, lamellar hydroxyapatite (HAp)/DNAExpand
Synthesis of Novel Schiff Bases from the Reaction of 3-O-methyl-4, 6-O-benzylidene-β-D-glucopyranosylamine with substituted aldehydes
The synthesis of novel sugar derived Schiff base derivatives from reaction of 3-O-methyl-4, 6-O-benzylidene-β-D-glucopyranosylamine with several substituted aldehydes is described.
Determination of Adenosine Triphosphate by a Target Inhibited Catalytic Cycle Based on a Strand Displacement Reaction
A strand displacement reaction-based system was developed for the determination of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It involved an entropy-driven catalytic cycle that directly employed the ATP aptamerExpand
Formation of an Oxametallacycle Surface Intermediate via Thermal Activation of 1-Chloro-2-methyl-2-propanol on Ni(100)
The thermal chemistry of 1-chloro-2-methyl-2-propanol (CH2Cl(CH3)2COH) on a Ni(100) single-crystal surface, clean and after hydrogen preadsorption, was studied by temperature-programmed desorptionExpand
Synthesis of a benzoxazine monomer containing maleimide and allyloxy groups
Abstract A novel benzoxazine monomer 3-(4-allyloxy)phenyl-3,4-dihydro-2 H -6-( N -maleimido)-1,3-benzoxazine (AMB) was synthesized and structure was confirmed by FT-IR, 1 H NMR. Thermal analysisExpand
N-terminal truncation of a maleate cis–trans isomerase from Rhodococcus jostii RHA1 results in a highly active enzyme for the biocatalytic production of fumaric acid
Abstract As part of the project to develop an efficient biocatalytic process for the production of fumaric acid, a full-length putative maleate cis–trans isomerase gene from Rhodococcus jostii RHA1Expand

A partial switch in mechanism for the partial oxidation of alcohols on nickel surfaces can be induced by substitution of gamma-hydrogens with more electronegative fluorine atoms. While exclusiveExpand
Identifying Oligomers and Lipid Vesicles Effects during α-Synuclein Fibril Formation through a Solid-State Nanopore
α-Synuclein (α-Syn) is a small intrinsically disordered 140 amino acids (14 kDa) protein expressed abundantly in human brain, regulating the release of neurotransmitters, vesicle recycling, andExpand
Synthesis of isochroman-4-ones and 2H-pyran-3(6H)-ones by gold-catalyzed oxidative cycloalkoxylation of alkynes.
Gold catalysis is a convenient tool to oxidatively functionalize alkyne into a range of valuable compounds. In this article, we report a new access to isochroman-4-one and 2H-pyran-3(6H)-oneExpand
