  • Within the rapidly growing vaccine space, conjugate vaccines-polysaccharide antigens covalently linked to carrier proteins-have been shown to be effective against several bacterial pathogens. (genengnews.com)
  • Carrier proteins both increase the magnitude of the immune response as well as engender B-cell "memory. (genengnews.com)
  • The number of carrier proteins used in licensed vaccines is relatively limited and includes tetanus toxoid, diphtheria toxoid, CRM 197 (a nontoxic mutant of diphtheria toxin), Haemophilus influenzae protein D, and Neisseria outer membrane protein. (genengnews.com)

  • Our goal is to address critical measurement issues that exist regarding chemical and physical stability of biomacromolecules (proteins and DNA) in hydrophilic, hydrogen-bonding glasses such as those used in the biopharmaceutical industry. (nist.gov)
  • We use the following approach to develop measurement solutions for biopharmaceutical stabilization: 1) Use theory, simulation and experimentation to develop clear understanding of key relationships between glass properties and likely stability outcomes of proteins in the glasses. (nist.gov)
  • 3) Validate the theoretical models by carrying out stability studies of model compounds and of pharmaceutically important proteins in fully characterized hydrophilic glasses. (nist.gov)
  • In 2004 we showed for the first time that the amplitude of local, high-frequency motions (on ns timescale, and Angstrom lengthscale) in hydrophobic glasses are key indicators of protein stability within those glasses. (nist.gov)
  • Since then we have shown that the impact of these high-frequency motions can dominate over all other measured properties in determining chemical and physical protein stability deep in the glassy state. (nist.gov)
  • We demonstrated that hydrogen bond network dynamics in glassy materials greatly impacts stability of proteins stored in those materials. (nist.gov)

  • AAA proteins are functionally and organizationally diverse, and vary in activity, stability, and mechanism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Applying the concepts of control theory, a body of knowledge that deals with the behavior of dynamical systems, the researchers concluded that this self-correcting behavior could only be possible if, during the early stages of evolution, the proteins had developed a self-regulating mechanism, analogous to a car's cruise control or a home's thermostat, allowing them to fine-tune and control their subsequent evolution. (redorbit.com)
  • Various researchers working over the past decade, including some at Princeton like George McClendon, now at Duke University, and Stacey Springs, now at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, fleshed out the workings of these proteins, finding that they were often turned on to the "maximum" position, operating at full tilt, or at the lowest possible energy level.
