The ability of the gametes to escape detection by the immune system is vital to successful human reproduction. Furthermore, the observed capacity of the testis in some species to support tissue grafts without rejection (immunological privilege) indicates that spermatogenic cells are protected by local immunoregulatory mechanisms. One of these mechanisms(More)
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is an essential tool for the purification and characterization of biomacromolecules. This unit presents a thorough discussion of the eight types of HPLC currently used, highlighting equipment and start-up procedures, recommendations for running each type of experiment, and theoretical considerations for the(More)
This study documents a new and versatile experimental approach to study the relative stabilization energetics of recombinant polypeptide and protein mutants. In particular, the effect of temperature change over the range of T = 278-338 K on the thermodynamics of interaction of several leucine zipper coiled-coil polypeptides related to the transcription(More)
The thermodynamic and extra-thermodynamic dependencies of five types of cytochrome c in water-acetonitrile mixtures of different composition in the presence of immobilised n-octyl ligands as a function of temperature from 278 K to 338 K have been investigated. The corresponding enthalpic, entropic and heat capacity parameters, deltaHdegrees assoc, deltaS(More)
In this study, the advantages of carrying out the analysis of peptides and tryptic digests of proteins under gradient elution conditions at pH 6.5 by reversed-phase liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) and in-line electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) are documented. For these RP separations, a double endcapped, bidentate anchored n-octadecyl wide(More)
The secondary structures of proteins (alpha-helical, beta-sheet, beta-turn, and random coil) in the solid state and when bound to polymer beads, containing immobilized phenyl and butyl ligands such as those as commonly employed in hydrophobic interaction chromatography, have been investigated using FTIR-ATR spectroscopy and partial least squares (PLS)(More)
The use of silica hydride-based stationary phases for the retention and analysis of nucleotides has been investigated. Both reversed-phase columns with a hydride surface underneath as well as those with an unmodified or a minimally modified hydride material were tested. With these systems, an aqueous normal-phase mode was used with high organic content(More)
Molecularly imprinted solid phase extraction (MISPE) has been employed to isolate and concentrate bioactive polyphenols from peanut press waste. To this end, a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) templated with the phytoalexin (E)-resveratrol has been prepared via self-assembly with the functional monomer 4-vinylpyridine (4VP) in a 1:3 molar ratio.(More)
This investigation describes the separation of tryptic peptides by capillary reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) with eluents in the intermediate pH range, followed by in-line electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS) analysis. For these purposes, gradient elution procedures with an aqueous eluent containing 20(More)
The application of a silica hydride modified stationary phase with low organic loading has been investigated as a new type of chromatographic material suitable for the separation and analysis of peptides with electrospray ionization mass spectrometric detection. Retention maps were established to delineate the chromatographic characteristics of a series of(More)
