Experimental phasing for structure determination using membrane-protein crystals grown by the lipid cubic phase method
TLDR
An assay to assess cysteine accessibility for mercury labelling of membrane proteins is introduced and pre-labelling, co-crystallization, soaking, site-specific mercury binding to genetically engineered single-cysteine mutants and selenomethionine labelling as applied to an integral membrane kinase crystallized in meso are described.
Detecting the active conformation of calpain with calpastatin-based reagents.
Calcium and EDTA Induced Folding and Unfolding of Calmodulin on Functionalized Quantum Dot Surfaces
TLDR
This research presents a novel probabilistic procedure called a “spatially aggregating immune checkpoints” that can be used to assess the immune defences of the eye and provide real-time information about the immune response to laser treatment.
Multi-Oxyanion Detection by an Organic Field-Effect Transistor with Pattern Recognition Techniques and Its Application to Quantitative Phosphate Sensing in Human Blood Serum.
TLDR
It is believed that a combination of the OFET functionalized with the SAM-based recognition scaffold and powerful pattern recognition methods can achieve multi-analyte detection from just a single sensor.
Two Novel PET Radiopharmaceuticals for Endothelial Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule-1 (VCAM-1) Targeting
TLDR
Two novel Positron Emission Tomography (PET) radiopharmaceuticals (MacroP and NAMP), based on the VCAM-1-binding peptide having sequence VHPKQHRGGSKGC, were synthesized and characterized and showed high radiochemical purity.
Pyrocinchonimides Conjugate to Amine Groups on Proteins via Imide Transfer.
TLDR
It is discovered that pyrocinchonimides, the dimethylated analog of maleimide, undergoes a surprising transformation with biomolecules and offers a thermodynamically controlled route to single or multiple modifications of proteins for a wide range of applications.
Breaking a Couple: Disulfide Reducing Agents
TLDR
Reducing methods for disulfide bonds are reviewed, taking into consideration the solubility of the substrates when selecting the appropriate reducing reagent.
Addressing Glutathione Redox Status in Clinical Samples by Two-Step Alkylation with N-ethylmaleimide Isotopologues
TLDR
A simple derivatization route that yields different isotopologues of N-ethylmaleimide alkylated glutathione from reduced and oxidized glutathion (after its chemical reduction) for mass spectrometric analysis and is fully optimized for blood, plasma, serum, cell, and tissue samples.
Labeling of Proteins for Single-Molecule Fluorescence Spectroscopy
TLDR
The practical details of a simple and widely applicable strategy for preparing proteins that are site-specifically labeled with a donor and an acceptor dye for single-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) experiments are described.

Antiproliferative and antitumor activities of D-reverse peptides derived from the second type-1 repeat of thrombospondin-1.
TLDR
These TSP-derived peptide analogs antagonize endothelial growth through their heparin-binding activity rather than through activation of latent TGF beta or increasing cell adhesion, and may therefore be useful as therapeutic inhibitors of angiogenesis stimulated by fibroblast growth factor-2.
Basic studies on heterobifunctional biotin-PEG conjugates with a 3-(4-pyridyldithio)propionyl marker on the second terminus.
TLDR
Heterobifunctional poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) derivatives with a biotin terminus have been synthesized and characterized with respect to avidin binding and the observed stability of 3:1 and 2:1 complexes with avidin is particularly significant.
Development of a dual glow-signal firefly and Renilla luciferase assay reagent for the analysis of G-protein coupled receptor signalling.
TLDR
A dual glow-signal firefly and Renilla luciferase assay is developed, which allows the simultaneous measurement of two reporter genes in the same well of a 96-well plate, resulting in significant time and cost savings.
Synthesis and antiviral activity of peptide-oligonucleotide conjugates prepared by using N alpha-(bromoacetyl)peptides.
TLDR
The definition of the optimal pH and temperature conditions leading to an efficient synthesis of peptide-oligonucleotide conjugates is defined: the reaction was quantitative at pH 7.5 within few hours and the conjugate with a thioether bond has a higher antiviral activity than the peptides-free oligonucleotide and the Conjugate linked via a disulfide bond.
Firefly luciferase has two nucleotide binding sites: effect of nucleoside monophosphate and CoA on the light-emission spectra.
TLDR
The analysis of the light emission in the presence of ATP or dATP provides some evidence that firefly luciferase has two nucleotide binding sites, each one leading to the formation of a complex emitting mainly at 575 nm (ATP) or 610 nm (dATP).
