Key factors of scanning a plant virus with AFM in air and aqueous solution
It is shown that positively charged APDMES functionalized silicon can be a suitable substrate to work with at neutral pHs and the effects of cantilever oscillation's free amplitude and the amplitude set‐point are assessed here.
Nanofibril Alignment during Assembly Revealed by an X-ray Scattering-Based Digital Twin
The nanostructure, primarily particle orientation, controls mechanical and functional (e.g., mouthfeel, cell compatibility, optical, morphing) properties when macroscopic materials are assembled from
Advances and insights in the diagnosis of viral infections
Methods widely used in the certificated diagnostic laboratory for SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, B, C, HIV, and other viruses during a viral pandemic are outlined and a comprehensive overview of molecular analytical methods has shown that the assay's sensitivity, accuracy, and suitability for virus detection depends on the choice of the number of regions in the viral open reading frame (ORF) genome sequence and the validity of the selected analytical method.

Although the currently adopted quasicrystal notion is not general enough to properly account for the rich structural features one usually finds in biological arrangements of matter, several mathematical tools and fundamental notions belonging to the aperiodic crystals science toolkit can provide a useful modeling framework to this end.
Helical Self-Organizations and Emerging Functions in Architectures, Biological and Synthetic Macromolecules
Helical architectures including artwork and monuments, such us the Trajan’s column from Rome, were constructed as early as in the year 113 while the assemblies and the self-organizations of biologi...
Diagnostic Electron Microscopy of Viruses With Low-voltage Electron Microscopes
The results suggest that low-voltage microscopes are a suitable alternative to high- voltage transmission electron microscopes for diagnostic electron microscopy of viruses.


Prolin als Endgruppe des Tabakmosaikvirus
Das nucleinsäurefreie Protein des Tabakmosaikvirus wurde mit Dinitrofluorbenzol umgesetzt und hydrolysiert. Bei vollständiger Hydrolyse ist kein α-Dinitrophenyl-Derivat einer Aminosäure faßbar,

Infra-Red Dichroism and Protein Structure: Infra-Red Dichroism of Tobacco Mosaic Virus Nucleoprotein
The infra-Red dichroism of Tobacco Mosaic Virus Nucleoprotein is related to the structure of the Tournaisian virus and its role in cell reprograming is unclear.
The structure of proteins; two hydrogen-bonded helical configurations of the polypeptide chain.
This work has used information about interatomic distances, bond angles, and other configurational parameters to construct two reasonable hydrogen-bonded helical configurations for the polypeptide chain; it is likely that these configurations constitute an important part of the structure of both fibrous and globular proteins, as well as of syntheticpolypeptides.
