Biosimilars provide safety, purity, and potency similar to those of a reference biologic product. An array of protein analytical techniques was used to compare the physicochemical properties of proposed biosimilar filgrastim (EP2006), US-approved originator filgrastim, and EU-approved originator filgrastim. Biological characterization involved surface(More)
Elongating Escherichia coli RNAP is modulated by NusA protein. The C-terminal domain (CTD) of the RNAP α subunit (αCTD) interacts with the acidic CTD 2 (AR2) of NusA, releasing the autoinhibitory blockade of the NusA S1-KH1-KH2 motif and allowing NusA to bind nascent nut spacer RNA. We determined the solution conformation of the AR2:αCTD complex. The αCTD(More)
The RNA sequences boxA, boxB and boxC constitute the nut regions of phage lambda. They nucleate the formation of a termination-resistant RNA polymerase complex on the lambda chromosome. The complex includes E. coli proteins NusA, NusB, NusG and NusE, and the lambda N protein. A complex that includes the Nus proteins and other factors forms at the rrn(More)
Paramagnetic relaxation enhancement (PRE) has become a useful and widely applied tool in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. In particular investigations of large complexes or transient contacts benefit from PRE effects. Frequently such studies involve modification of the biomacromolecules under study. We here present a method for editing NMR spectra by(More)
Random spin labeling (RSL) is a method for rapid mapping of biomolecular interaction surfaces using an interaction partner with SL and an interaction partner enriched in (13)C or (15)N nuclei for paramagnetic relaxation enhanced NMR-based detection. The SL reaction is conducted in a manner resulting in a heterogeneous reaction product consisting of(More)
N protein of the Escherichia coli phage lambda (lambdaN) is involved in antitermination, a transcription regulatory process that is essential for the expression of delayed early genes during phage lytic development. lambdaN is an intrinsically unstructured protein that possesses three distinct binding sites interacting with the carboxy terminus of the E.(More)
The carboxy-terminal domain of the transcription factor Escherichia coli NusA, NusACTD, interacts with the protein N of bacteriophage lambda, lambdaN, and the carboxyl terminus of the E. coli RNA polymerase alpha subunit, alphaCTD. We solved the solution structure of the unbound NusACTD with high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Additionally, we(More)
