Systematic ligand-binding studies of the biospecific interaction between steroids and antisteroid antibodies can be performed in real time using biosensor techniques. In this study, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor systems were applied. Different biotinylated testosterone (T) and 17beta-estradiol (E2)(More)
There is a growing body of experimental evidence suggesting that the Ca(2+) signaling in ventricular myocytes is characterized by a high gradient near the cell membrane and a more uniform Ca(2+) distribution in the cell interior [1]--[7]. An important reason for this phenomenon might be that in these cells the t-tubular system forms a network of(More)
We describe synthetic strategies for the biotinylation of testosterone (T) at positions 3, 7alpha, 17alpha, and 19. These T probes are able to mimic ligand binding and may provide for a better understanding of the biospecific interaction with steroid-binding proteins such as the androgen receptor, anti-steroid antibodies, or steroid-binding serum globulins.(More)
Biotinylated 17beta-estradiol (E2) derivatives are helpful probes for a better understanding of biospecific E2 interactions with steroid-binding proteins such as the estrogen receptor and anti-steroid antibodies. We describe synthetic strategies for the biotinylation of E2 toward the 3, 6alpha, and 7alpha positions using biotinyl-N-hydroxysuccinimide esters(More)
Murine macrophage migration inhibitory factor (mMIF) is an Mr 12,500 protein composed of all natural amino acid residues. Using the fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl chemistry for solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) under special conditions, a stepwise approach was very successful leading to a crude product in unexpected high purity. After RP-HPLC isolation, a(More)
