Human APOBEC3G (hA3G) is a cytidine deaminase that restricts human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection in a vif (the virion infectivity factor from HIV)-dependent manner. hA3G from HIV-permissive activated CD4+ T-cells exists as an inactive, high molecular mass (HMM) complex that can be transformed in vitro into an active, low molecular mass (LMM)(More)
Glutaminase C is a key metabolic enzyme, which is unregulated in many cancer systems and believed to play a central role in the Warburg effect, whereby cancer cells undergo changes to an altered metabolic profile. A long-standing hypothesis links enzymatic activity to the protein oligomeric state, hence the study of the solution behavior in general and the(More)
High-pressure cryocooling has been developed as an alternative method for cryopreservation of macromolecular crystals and successfully applied for various technical and scientific studies. The method requires the preservation of crystal hydration as the crystal is pressurized with dry helium gas. Previously, crystal hydration was maintained either by(More)
The overall conformations of regulated myosins or heavy meromyosins from chicken/turkey, scallop, tarantula, limulus, and scorpion sources have been studied by a number of techniques, including electron microscopy, sedimentation, and pulsed electron paramagnetic resonance. These studies have indicated that the binding of regulatory ions changes the(More)
The Macromolecular Diffraction Facility at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (MacCHESS) is a national research resource supported by the National Center for Research Resources of the US National Institutes of Health. MacCHESS is pursuing several research initiatives designed to benefit both CHESS users and the wider structural biology community.(More)
Protein crystallography continues to be the prime source of high-resolution molecular structural information in biology. Its success depends totally upon the ability of proteins and other biomolecules to form well-ordered crystalline lattices under the right conditions. Many important biological molecules, however, are not well behaved in this regard, a(More)
This paper describes new experiments designed to characterize the micromechanical response of structural materials. As a way to calibrate microscale constitutive models and to understand grain scale elastic-plastic deformation, our group worked closely with CHESS personnel to develop a high energy x-ray method for measuring lattice Strain Pole Figures(More)
