Cell phenotype is determined by protein network states that are maintained by the dynamics of multiple protein interactions.1 Fluorescence microscopy approaches that measure protein interactions in individual cells, such as by Forster resonant energy transfer (FRET), are limited by the spectral separation of fluorophores and thus are most suitable to analyze a single protein interaction in a given cell. However, analysis of correlations between multiple protein interactions is required to…

An Approach for the Real-Time Quantification of Cytosolic Protein-Protein Interactions in Living Cells.
This method turns out to be an important extension of cell-based molography because it expands the range of interactions that can be analyzed by mologicraphy to those in the cytosol of living cells.
Protein Micropatterning Assay: Quantitative Analysis of Protein-Protein Interactions.
A straightforward method to identify and quantify the interaction of a membrane protein and a fluorescently labeled interaction partner ("prey") in live cells using Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence microscopy is described.
Subcellular Dynamic Immunopatterning of Cytosolic Protein Complexes on Microstructured Polymer Substrates
This method represents a significant enhancement of quantitative subcellular micropatterning approaches as an alternative to standard biochemical analyses and could show that this approach is well suited to study the efficacy and specificity of SH2 and SH3 protein domain inhibitors in a live cell context.

Subcellular micropatterning for visual immunoprecipitation reveals differences in cytosolic protein complexes downstream the EGFR
A robust method for visual immunoprecipitation of cytosolic protein complexes by use of an artificial transmembrane bait construct in combination with micropatterned antibody arrays on cyclic olefin polymer (COP) substrates is presented.
Highly Modular Protein Micropatterning Sheds Light on the Role of Clathrin-Mediated Endocytosis for the Quantitative Analysis of Protein-Protein Interactions in Live Cells
Clathrin was found to form internalization hotspots within the patterned areas, which, potentially, leads to unspecific bait/prey protein co-recruitment and the use of DNA-based linker systems can lead to the improvement of the technical platform.
Deblurring Signal Network Dynamics.
To orchestrate the function and development of multicellular organisms, cells integrate intra- and extracellular information. This information is processed via signal networks in space and time,
Spatiotemporally Controlled Reorganization of Signaling Complexes in the Plasma Membrane of Living Cells.
Efficient in situ reorganization of the type I interferon receptor subunits as well as intact, fully functional signaling complexes in living cells are achieved by this method.
Multiscale Origami Structures as Interface for Cells.
This technology is used to analyze the activation of epidermal growth factor receptors in living MCF7 cells using DNA origami structures decorated on their surface with distinctive nanoscale arrangements of EGF ligand entities.
Protein micropatterns printed on glass: Novel tools for protein‐ligand binding assays in live cells
The wide potential and the current practical uses of printed protein micropatterns in a historical overview are outlined, and some potential pitfalls and difficulties from the author's experience are detail, as well as ways to circumvent them.


Micropatterning for quantitative analysis of protein-protein interactions in living cells
The method was used to characterize the interaction between human CD4, the major co-receptor in T- cell activation, and human Lck, the protein tyrosine kinase essential for early T-cell signaling, and the known zinc clasp structure had a major impact on the Lck-CD4 interaction.
Discrete States of a Protein Interaction Network Govern Interphase and Mitotic Microtubule Dynamics
Using a new visual immunoprecipitation assay that quantifies pairwise protein interactions in a non-perturbing manner in Xenopus egg extracts, the existence of a network of interactions between a series of microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) is revealed, providing the beginning of a biochemical description of the notion of “cytoplasmic states” regarding the microtubules system.
Spatial organization of intracellular communication: insights from imaging
To uncover the principles that underlie the generation of spatiotemporal patterns of activity which guide cellular behaviour, functional Imaging techniques that report on the activity of molecules must be combined with imaging techniques that reports on the mobility of molecules.
Oligonucleotide-directed self-assembly of proteins: semisynthetic DNA--streptavidin hybrid molecules as connectors for the generation of macroscopic arrays and the construction of supramolecular bioconjugates.
The use of nucleic acid sequences as a template for the formation of an array of proteins is further demonstrated on two size scales, and the generation of supramolecular bioconjugates was shown by quantitative measurements and gel-retardation assays.
Active site mutations define the pathway for the cooperative activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase.
The mechanism of activation based on mutant R-subunits containing one intact high affinity cAMP-binding site and one defective site and from kinetic data, the following conclusions are reached: Site A provides the major contact site with the C-subunit; Site B is not essential for holoenzyme formation.
cAMP-dependent Protein Kinase Regulatory Subunit Type IIβ
The properties of RIIβ and two mutant RII β subunits are described, engineered by converting a conserved Arg to Lys in each cAMP-binding domain thereby yielding a protein that contains one intact, high affinity camp-binding site and one defective site.

This Review surveys current approaches to generate DNA-protein conjugates as well as recent advances in their applications to enable applications in sensing, materials science, and catalysis.
FRET measurements of intracellular cAMP concentrations and cAMP analog permeability in intact cells
A protocol that allows precise measurements of cAMP concentrations and kinetics by expressing FRET-based cAMP sensors in cells and modulating them with an inhibitor of adenylyl cyclase activity and a cell-permeable cAMP analog that fully inhibits and activates the sensors, respectively is presented.
Selecting and screening recombinant antibody libraries
The first antibody of this new generation, adalimumab (Humira, a human IgG1 specific for human tumor necrosis factor (TNF)), already approved for therapy and with many more in clinical trials, these recombinant antibody technologies will provide a solid basis for the discovery of antibody-based biopharmaceuticals, diagnostics and research reagents for decades to come.
