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 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)
Red wine has long been credited as a good source of health-beneficial antioxidants, including the bioactive polyphenols catechin, quercetin, and (E)-resveratrol. In this paper, we report the application of reusable molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for the selective and robust solid-phase extraction (SPE) and rapid analysis of (E)-resveratrol(More)
The TthL36 protein of the 50S ribosomal proteins from Thermus thermophilus has been found to contain the rare C(Xaa)2C(Xaa)12C(Xaa)4H (CCCH) sequence motif, a zinc finger binding motif, which for other zinc finger proteins is known to cleave RNA hairpins. In order to investigate the metal-binding properties of this T. thermophilus TthL36 protein, the core(More)
Procedures have been developed to identify the chromatographic binding domains of horse heart cytochrome c (Cyt c) and bovine growth hormone (bGH) during their interaction with reversed-phase sorbent materials. The procedure involves adsorption of the protein solute to the chromatographic sorbent, followed by proteolytic cleavage. Comparison of the(More)
INTRODUCTIONPurification of peptides derived from solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) requires the removal of deletion peptides resulting from incomplete coupling/deprotection steps, from racemization or side-chain rearrangement, and from various chemical substances introduced during the deprotection or cleavage stages of an SPPS procedure. This protocol(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)
Non-covalent and covalent imprinting strategies have been investigated for the synthesis of stigmasterol imprinted polymers. The synthesized molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were then evaluated for their recognition and selectivity towards stigmasterol via static and dynamic batch-binding assays and their performance measured against control(More)
(E)-Resveratrol imprinted polymers have been rationally designed with the aid of molecular modelling and NMR spectroscopic titration techniques to determine the optimal ratio of the template to functional monomer for polymer formation. Based on this approach, (E)-resveratrol imprinted polymers were prepared via non-covalent self-assembly with the functional(More)
