Origin of the Word ‘Protein’

  title={Origin of the Word ‘Protein’},
  author={Harold Sir Hartley},
IN an address to the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences on “The Place of Berzelius in the History of Chemistry” and in the Berzelius Memorial Lecture to the Royal Society, I claimed for Berzelius the authorship of the word ‘protein’. This claim was based on the following passages in a letter to Mulder, the Dutch chemist, dated July 10, 1838: 

History of protein–protein interactions: From egg‐white to complex networks

Some of the key experiments that have introduced major conceptual advances in biochemistry and molecular biology, and technological breakthroughs that have paved the way for today's systems‐wide approaches to protein–protein interaction analysis are presented.

From genomes to post-processing of Bayesian inference of phylogeny

This research presents a new probabilistic procedure called “spot-spot dismembering” that allows for precise and efficient counts of the number of mitochondria in a single cell.

Analytical tools in protein structure determination

In this review, the four stages of protein structure determination are described and the current techniques used to uncover the protein structure and highpoint best suitable method for a given protein are explored.

Towards subcellular localization of the human proteome using bioimaging

This work has shown that not only the structure of the TSP but also the role of TSP in the regulation of cell proliferation and apoptosis is determined by the single TSP single-celled TSP itself.

Stapled Peptides—A Useful Improvement for Peptide-Based Drugs

The main stapling methodologies currently employed or under development and the synthetic pathways involved in the amino acid modifications are reported and two comparative studies upon different kinds of stapled peptides are reported, evaluating the properties given from each typology of staple to the target peptide and discussing the best choices for the use of this feature in peptide-drug synthesis.

Microbial Degradation of Proteins

The degradation of proteins related to several species of microorganisms as a source of proteolytic enzymes as well as a wide range of applications approached into industrial and biotechnological like pharmaceuticals and bioremediation are described.
