Capillary polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis separation of dideoxycytidine chain-terminated DNA fragments is reported. A post-column laser-induced fluorescence detector based on the sheath flow cuvette was used to minimize background signals due to light scatter from the gel and capillary. A preliminary mass detection limit of 10(-20) mol of(More)
We have studied the conformational behavior of alpha-lactalbumin (alpha-LACT) in hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC). Retention characterization in terms of Z (slope of plot of ln k' vs. ln phi B, where k' is the capacity factor and phi B is the volume fraction of mobile phase B) has been explored, and the relationship of Z to other slopes, such as(More)
Capillary gel electrophoresis is demonstrated for the four-spectral-channel sequencing technique of Smith, the two-spectral-channel sequencing technique of Prober, and the one-spectral-channel sequencing technique of Richardson and Tabor. Sequencing rates up to 1000 bases/h are obtained at electric field strengths of 465 V/cm. At lower electric field(More)
Production of proteins by recombinant DNA technology for use as pharmaceuticals requires the use of the most powerful tools of analytical protein chemistry in order to confirm purity and identity of the product and reliability of the process. Capillary electrophoresis is an emerging technology that shows high sensitivity and selectivity and may have promise(More)
This letter presents an ultrathin textured polycrystalline oxide (polyoxide) ( ~100 A) prepared by thermal oxidation of thin polycrystalline silicon (polysilicon) film on n+ polysilicon. The presented textured polyoxide exhibits a much higher electron injection efficiency, a much smaller electron trapping rate, and a much larger charge to breakdown than the(More)
Capillary zone electrophoresis is employed for the separation and analysis of both fluorescein thiohydantoin and dimethylaminoazobenzene thiohydantoin derivatives of amino acids. Detection of minute amounts of these amino acid derivatives is an important milestone in the development of a high sensitivity protein sequencer. Current detection limits for the(More)
UV spectra were successfully employed in identifying peptide fragments from a tryptic digest of recombinant-DNA-derived human growth hormone (r-hGH). It was possible to distinguish very similar peptides utilizing a digital comparison of the UV spectra. An automated procedure was developed to generate a calibration library for the tryptic digest of a(More)
The thermal behavior of a series of standard proteins in hydrophobic interaction chromatography on a previously developed weakly hydrophobic ether-bonded phase column has been studied. Depending on the temperature and protein, conformational changes can occur in the chromatographic system. Methods for recognizing these conformational effects are presented,(More)
