Previously, we reported that artificial zinc-finger proteins (AZPs) inhibited virus DNA replication in planta and in mammalian cells by blocking binding of a viral replication protein to its replication origin. However, the replication mechanisms of viruses of interest need to be disentangled for the application. To develop more widely applicable methods(More)
Here is presented a concept for in vitro selection of suppressor tRNAs. It uses a pool of dsDNA templates in compartmentalized water-in-oil micelles. The template contains a transcription/translation trigger, an amber stop codon, and another transcription trigger for the anticodon- or anticodon loop-randomized gene for tRNA(Ser). Upon transcription are(More)
Anthracenebisresorcinol derivative 1 as an organic network material shows a novel catalysis in the solid state for the acrolein-cyclohexadiene Diels-Alder reaction. The suggested mechanism involves a catalytic cycle composed of sorption of the reactants in the cavities of polycrystalline host 1, preorganized intracavity reaction, and desorption of the(More)
In an attempt to monitor μm-level trace constituents, we applied here (1)H-{(13)C-(15)N} triple-resonance nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to (13)C/(15)N-enriched l-Dopa as the inevitable precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain. The perfect selectivity (to render endogenous components silent) and μm-level sensitivity (700 MHz spectrometer(More)
