The phase behaviour and structural parameters of a homologous series of saturated diacyl phosphatidylcholine/fatty acid 1:2 (mol/mol) mixtures having chain lengths from C12 to C20 were studied by X-ray diffraction and calorimetry, as a function of water content. The chain-melting transition temperatures of the 1:2 PC/FA mixtures are found to be largely(More)
Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy is useful for detecting and characterizing molecular clusters that are smaller than or approximately equal to optical resolution in size. Here, we report the development of an approach in which the pixel-to-pixel fluorescence fluctuations from a single fluorescence image are spatially autocorrelated. In these(More)
Although the translational diffusion coefficients of proteins embedded in, or tightly bound to, natural and artificial cell membranes have been extensively studied, very little is known about the diffusion of proteins weakly bound to membranes. One method for measuring the diffusion coefficients of weakly bound species is to combine evanescent interference(More)
Previous work has shown that bovine prothrombin fragment 1 binds to supported planar membranes composed of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine in a Ca(2+)-specific manner (Tendian et al. (1991) Biochemistry 30, 10991; Pearce et al. (1992) Biochemistry 31, 5983-5995). In the present work, fluorescence pattern photobleaching recovery has been used to(More)
This study was aimed to use the method of modulation transfer function (MTF) to compare image quality among three different Olympus medical rigid cystoscopes in an in vitro model. During the experimental processes, we firstly used three different types of cystoscopes (i. e. OLYMPUS cystourethroscopy with FOV of 12 degrees, OLYMPUS Germany A22003A and(More)
Previous work has shown that bovine prothrombin fragment 1 binds to substrate-supported planar membranes composed of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylserine (PS) in a Ca(2+)-specific manner. The apparent equilibrium dissociation constant is 1-15 microM, and the average membrane residency time is approximately 0.25 s-1. In the present work,(More)
Reductive methylation of nearly all lysine groups of myosin subfragment-1 (S1) was required for crystallization and solution of its structure at atomic resolution. Possible effects of such methylation on the radius of gyration of chicken skeletal muscle myosin S1 have been investigated by using small-angle neutron scattering. In addition, we have(More)
