The relative configuration of a key subunit of hemicalide, a recently isolated, highly bioactive marine natural product having potent antiproliferative activity against a panel of human cancer cell lines, was assigned by combining stereocontrolled synthesis of model substrates with NMR, IR, and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy. The assignment of the absolute configuration of asymmetric carbon center C42 in two structurally complex epimeric substructures containing six stereocenters by VCD analysis illustrates the power and reliability of combining methods. ...

Bertucci C., Cimitan S., Riva A., Morazzoni P.. The binding to human serum albumin (HSA) of the antitumoural drug paclitaxel and of several structural analogues has been characterized by bioaffinity chromatography and circular dichroism. A ranking of the taxanes was obtained for their affinity to the protein by measuring their retention times on an albumin chromatographic column. This also allowed the calculation of the drug bound percentage. Affinity resulted significantly affected by the nature of the isoserinic side chain, the presence of the 1,14-carbonate moiety and the substituent at C-7, showing that the hydrophobicity of the drug is fundamental in the binding process. The analysis demonstrated that the organic solvent highly alters the interaction mechanism of taxanes to the protein and so the affinity results. Circular dichroism experiments supported this hypothesis. Furthermore, taxanes binding to the serum carrier was characterized by displacement chromatography, by adding into the ...
The preparations of pentaamminecobalt(III) complexes of a series of asymmetric unidentate amines are reported. The circular dichroism spectra for the (S)-amines show negative Cotton effects under the A → T absorption band, which are somewhat solvent dependent but independent of temperature down to -190°C. The vicinal effect from 1-cyclohexylethylamine was comparable to that from analogous aromatic compounds, but the simpler alkyl derivatives were found to impose smaller rotational strengths on the d-d transitions. The lack of measurable c.d. in the visible region for tetraammine((S)-butane-1, 3-diamine)cobalt(III) is reported and discussed in the light of the other studies ...

Philip J. Stephens was a theoretical chemist who brought to fruition two new forms of optical spectroscopy, using circularly polarized light, for the determination of electronic structure and molecular stereochemistry. The first was magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), the wavelength dependence of the differential absorption of left and right circularly polarized light induced by a magnetic field applied parallel to the light beam. Stephens established a methodology for extracting from MCD spectra the angular momentum characteristics of ground and excited electronic states and demonstrated applications to the assignment of the optical spectra of coordination complexes of transition metals and to metalloproteins. In the second half of his career Stephens led the field of vibrational circular dichroism (VCD), the measurement of the natural circular dichroism (CD) arising from the vibrational transitions of chiral molecules. He developed instrumental techniques to measure this weak dichroism over a ...

The circular-dichroism and proton-magnetic-resonance spectra of complexes of ribonuclease A with dihydrouridine 3′-phosphate, 2′- and 3′-CMP, arabinosyl-3′-CMP, 1-(2-hydroxyethyl)cytosine 2′-phosphate and 1-(3-hydroxypropyl)cytosine 3′-phosphate were studied. Comparison of the results shows that non-additivity of the circular-dichroic spectrum of an enzyme-nucleotide complex may be due to: (a), alteration of the circular dichroic spectrum of the nucleotide under the influence of the asymmetric protein matrix (induced dichroism), and (b) a change in the nucleotide conformation. The contribution of each of the two factors was estimated to calculate the circular-dichoroic spectra of 2′-CMP and 3′-CMP in complex with ribonuclease A. 3′-CMP in this complex was characterized by negative circular dichroism in the long-wavelength absorption band of the nucleotide, whereas 2′-CMP was characterized by positive circular dichroism. Since both nucleotides in the complex are known to be in ...
Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy is an optical technique that measures the difference in the absorption of left and right circularly polarized light. This technique has been widely employed in the studies of nucleic acids structures and the use of it to monitor conformational polymorphism of DNA has grown tremendously in the past few decades. DNA may undergo conformational changes to B-form, A-form, Z-form, quadruplexes, triplexes and other structures as a result of the binding process to different compounds. Here we review the recent CD spectroscopic studies of the induction of DNA conformational changes by different ligands, which includes metal derivative complex of aureolic family drugs, actinomycin D, neomycin, cisplatin, and polyamine. It is clear that CD spectroscopy is extremely sensitive and relatively inexpensive, as compared with other techniques. These studies show that CD spectroscopy is a powerful technique to monitor DNA conformational changes resulting from drug binding and also
A new method to detect the vibrational CD (VCD) of a localized part of a chiral mol. system is reported. A local VCD amplifier was implemented, and the distance dependence of the amplification was investigated in a series of peptides. The results indicate a characteristic distance of 2.0±0.3 bonds, which suggests that the amplification is a localized phenomenon. The amplifier can be covalently coupled to a specific part of a mol., and can be switched ON and OFF electrochem. By subtracting the VCD spectra obtained when the amplifier is in the ON and OFF states, the VCD of the local environment of the amplifier can be sepd. from the total VCD spectrum. Switchable local VCD amplification thus makes it possible to "zoom in" on a specific part of a chiral mol ...
A series of polypeptides with well-defined sequences, (Asp3Phe1)n, (Asp2Phe1)n, (Asp1Phe1)n, (Asp1Phe2)n, and (Asp1Phe3)n, containing the hydrophilic amino acid, aspartic acid (Asp) and the hydrophobic amino acid, phenylalanine (Phe), were synthesized. Their behaviour in aqueous solution was investigated by performing fluorescence quenching and non-radiative energy transfer (NRET) experiments which were complemented by dynamic (DLS) and static (SLS) light scattering. The photophysical properties of the polypeptides were dependent on their Phe content. An increase in the Phe content led to an increase in the extinction coefficient, fluorescence quantum yield, and fluorescence average lifetime of the polypeptides. Circular dichroism experiments revealed that except for the (Asp1Phe3)n polypeptide, which adopts an alpha-helical conformation in aqueous solution, the other polypeptides did not adopt any known conformation in solution. The fluorescence quenching studies performed using molecular ...

The focus of my PhD has been the development of new instrumentation for UV polarised spectroscopic methods, especially that of circular dichroism (CD). Whilst instrument design is an unusual field of research (especially for a chemist!) I feel it is one of great importance to the scientific process. The instruments that scientists employ to study the world around us are our eyes and ears, enabling us to view objects from the angstrom level to distant galaxies. In many ways, it could be argued that the limiting factor for the majority of research is the methods that we can employ. By improving these methods, we naturally enhance the quality of our research and further understanding. Capillary circular dichroism (CaCD). One of the key problems with circular dichroism as a technique is its relatively high sample requirments for each reading. In order to address this problem, we have been working on using extruded quartz capillaries as an inexpensive alternative sample holder to the rectangular ...
The extension of circular dichroism measurements into the VUV region was motivated by the need to provide supplementary techniques to the absorption studies lacking rotational and vibrational structure. CD as one of these techniques is determined by selection rules which differ from those in absorption and thus enables the assignment of excited electronic states. Another application of VUVCD measurements is the use of correlation between the sign of the CD signal and the absolute configuration to formulate sector rules of chromophores absorbing only in the VUV. In this review we will present results obtained on our home-made instrument capable of measuring CD signal down to 150 nm. These applications of VUVCD will be demonstrated in systems such as the oxirane chromophore, the methylenecyclohexene chromophore and the amine chromophore. The role of singlet-triplet transitions and their contribution to CD and ORD will also be discussed. ...

We are a biophysical chemistry group that is focused on understanding the mechanism of entry by viruses enveloped by a membrane. Many important human pathogens are enveloped viruses, including Human Immunodeficiency (HIV), Influenza, Measles, Rabies, West Nile, Zika, Ebola, SARS, and MERS. Each virus has evolved a protein in its membrane that catalyzes the joining ("fusion") of the virus membrane with the membrane of the target cell. We are studying the glycoprotein 41 kDa (gp41) fusion protein of HIV and hemagglutinin subunit 2 (HA2) fusion protein of influenza. Our work and contributions include the protein structures and locations in membrane. We also study the changes in membrane structure associated with the protein. A significant fraction of our effort is in development and application of "solid-state", i.e. anisotropic nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to these proteins. We also apply a variety of other biophysical methods including circular dichroism spectroscopy, fluorescence ...
In this report, we provide an x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) study for 100?nm thick epitaxial magnetite (Fe3O4) films on MgO (001) and Al2O3 (0001) substrates. For XMCD, we recorded the surface sensitive total electron yield and the bulk sensitive transmission spectra. From the analysis of the XMCD data, we find an increased Fe spin moment (10% larger) at the surface of the film on MgO (100) with respect to the corresponding bulk value of the film. Surface and bulk spin moments of the film on Al2O3(0001) are almost equal. For both films, the bulk orbital to spin moments ratio increases from zero at 70?K to 0.03?0.04 at 300?K. For Fe3O4/MgO (001), the surface orbital to spin moment ratio behaves similarly to the bulk value, while the orbital to spin moments ratio is increased at the Fe3O4/Al2O3 (0001) surface to 0.06. The observed differences between films grown on MgO and Al2O3 are explained within the framework of differences in mismatch strain experienced by the films. ...

We present here a study of the magnetic properties of the Nd2−xHoxFe14B series. The macroscopic properties of these compounds evolve continuously from those of Nd2Fe14B to those of Ho2Fe14B as Ho gradually replaces Nd. The system shows a compensation of the rare-earth sublattice magnetization for a critical concentration, xc=0.55, that is reflected into the anomalous behavior of both macroscopic and microscopic magnetic probes. The combined analysis of magnetization, 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy and Fe K-edge x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) measurements suggests that the origin of the anomalous magnetic behavior found at xc=0.55 is mainly due to the Ho sublattice. Moreover, the analysis of the Fe K-edge XMCD signals reveal the presence of a rare-earth contribution, reflecting the coupling of the rare-earth and Fe magnetic moments, which can lead to the possibility of disentangling the magnetic behavior of both Fe and R atoms using a single absorption edge ...

Angewandte Chemie DOI: 10.1002/ange.201006255 H2 Activation Iron-Chromophore Circular Dichroism of [Fe]-Hydrogenase: The Conformational Change Required for H2 Activation** Seigo Shima,* Sonja Vogt, Andreas Gbels, and Eckhard Bill Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy is a very sensitive method used to detect changes in inherently chiral chromophores and in achiral chromophores embedded in chiral surroundings.[1] Information on the secondary structures of proteins can be obtained by CD spectroscopy in the far-UV spectral region (190-250 nm), and CD in the near-UV region (250-350 nm) can be sensitive to certain aspects of tertiary structure.[1b] Near-UV and visible CD spectroscopy is also used to analyze metal complexes[1a,c] and the active site of metal-containing enzymes, such as P450 (300-500 nm), galactose oxidase (300-700 nm), and biotin sulfoxide reductase (300-650 nm).[2] The [Fe]-hydrogenase found in many methanogenic archaea catalyzes the reversible reduction of ...
We compared various spectroscopic properties of a norfloxacin-single stranded DNA complex with those of norfloxacin-double stranded DNA complex. Norfloxacin binds to both double- and single stranded DNA, and we observed the following spectroscopic changes for both complexes: hypochromism in the norfloxacin absorption region in the absorption spectrum, the characteristic induced CD spectrum consisting of a weak positive band at 323 nm and a strong positive band at 280-300 nm followed by a negative band in the 260 nm region, a strong decrease in the fluorescence intensity and a red-shift in the fluorescence emission spectrum, and shorter fluorescence decay times. These results indicate that the environments of the bound norfloxacin in both DNAs are similar, although the equilibrium constant of the norfloxacin-single stranded DNA was twice as high as the norfloxacin-double stranded DNA complex. Both complexes were thermodynamically favored with similar negative ΔGo. Negative ΔHo terms contribute ...
Ligand binding properties of five single amino acid substituted variants (V11A, D12A, Q15A, Q15E, and F16A) of human insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) were analyzed with respect to their binding affinities and binding kinetics to recombinant IGF binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1) and a soluble form of the IGF type I receptor (sIGF-I(R)), respectively. Side chains of the substituted residues are all predicted to be the most surface exposed in the alpha-helical portion of the B-region of the IGF-I molecule. The IGF-I variants were produced as fusion proteins to a IgG(Fc) binding protein domain, Z. Ligand binding kinetic rates were determined using BIAcore biosensor interaction analysis technology. All IGF-I variants showed altered binding affinities to both IGFBP- I and sIGF-I(R). Secondary structure content of the IGF-I variants was estimated using far-UV circular dichroism spectroscopy, followed by variable selection secondary structure calculations. The amount of calculated alpha-helicity is ...

A powerful tool used to monitor secondary structure is circular dichroism (CD), which is the differential absorbance of left and right circularly polarized light. Since proteins consist of chiral amino acids, they are CD active and exhibit distinct CD spectra that are sensitive to the proteins secondary structure. This spectra can provide a qualitative snapshot of the protein structure or the secondary structure composition of a protein can be estimated from the far UV CD spectrum using a number of algorithms, several of which are made available in Olis GlobalWorks software.. Protein secondary structure can also be used to monitor protein folding and unfolding. An equilibrium study consists of collection of CD spectra as a function of increasing temperature or chemical denaturant. As the protein unfolds, the CD spectrum reflects this. Fitting data at a single wavelength or the full spectral scans during this denaturation process provides thermodynamic information such as the melting temperature ...

Nearly all circular dichroism (CD) and linear dichroism (LD) spectrometers use a photoelastic modulator (PEM) in which an optical element is stressed using a high-tension voltage (HT) signal to induce birefringence. The birefringence consequently produces a phase difference between perpendicular polarization states of light passing through the PEM that is appropriate to CD or LD measurements. However, even without external stress (i.e., at zero HT) the PEM exhibits an inherent static birefringence. This article discusses the characterization of the static birefringence inherent to a PEM and its effect on the measurement of CD and LD, as well as the development and implementation of a novel model that accommodates for the presence of static birefringence. The model is validated with CD and LD experiments using purely chiral or linearly structured molecules (camphorsulfonic acid and chrysazin).. PDF Article ...
By Knee, Kelly M Dixit, Surjit B; Aitken, Colin Echeverria; Ponomarev, Sergei; Beveridge, D L; Mukerji, Ishita ABSTRACT The A-to-B form transition has been examined in three DNA duplexes, d(CGCGAATTCGCG)^sub 2^, d(CGCGAATTGCGC), and d(CGCAAATTTCGC), using circular dichroism spectroscopy, ultraviolet resonance Raman (UVRR) spectroscopy, and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Circular dichroism spectra confirm that these molecules adopt the A form under conditions of reduced water activity. UVRR results, obtained under similar conditions, suggest that the transition involves a series of intermediate forms between A and B. Cooperative and distinct transitions were observed for the bases and the sugars. Independent MD simulations on d(CGCGAATTCGCG)^sub 2^ show a spontaneous change from the A to B form in aqueous solution and describe a kinetic model that agrees well with UVRR results. Based on these observations, we predict that the mechanism of the transition involves a series of A/B hybrid forms ...
Soft x-ray absorption spectroscopy and magnetic circular dichroism at the Co L{sub 2,3} edge have been applied to explore the near-interfacial magnetism of Co electrodes in Co/alumina based magnetic tunnel junctions. By taking into account the formation of CoO at the FM/barrier interface, the change in the total magnetic moment on metallic Co atoms as a function of barrier oxidation has been determined. The results demonstrate a strong correlation between the Co moments and measured TMR values, and an enhancement in the Co moments for moderate oxidation times.
10−2. This happens in paramagnetic systems that are at lower temperature or that have sharp lines in the spectroscopy. In biology, metalloproteins are the most likely candidates for MCD measurements, as the presence of metals with degenerate energy levels leads to strong MCD signals. In the case of ferric heme proteins, MCD is capable of determining both oxidation and spin state to a remarkably exquisite degree. In regular proteins, MCD is capable of stoichiometrically measuring the tryptophan content of proteins, assuming there are no other competing absorbers in the spectroscopic system. In addition, the application of MCD spectroscopy greatly improved the level of understanding in the ferrous non-heme systems because of the direct observation of the d-d transitions, which generally can not be obtained in optical absorption spectroscopy owing to the weak extinction coefficients and are often electron paramagnetic resonance silent due to relatively large ground-state sublevel splittings and ...
Marker bands for specific secondary structures are most typically observed in the UV region below 260 nm and as far into the far-UV region as possible. It has been widely reported that CD measurements using synchroton radiation have been used to successfully measure spectra down to around 140 nm. As an alternative to synchrotron radiation, the J-1500 CD spectrometer has been improved for measurements in the vacuum UV region. ...
|p|The first transition metal iodato peroxido complex, K3[V2O2(O2)4(IO3)]·H2O (I), was prepared by crystallization from the KVO3 - KIO3 - H2O2 - H2O - ethanol (HNO3) solution. The dinuclear anion is immediately decomposed in aqueous solution; the 51V NMR spectrum exhibits signals corresponding to [VO(O2)2(H2O)]−, [V2O2(OH)(O2)4]3− and H2VO4− species only. The IR and Raman spectra contain all characteristic bands of the VO(O2)2 group and the coordinated IO3− ligand. Based on the positions of bands assigned to the vibrations of the VO(O2)2 groups a pentagonal pyramidal arrangement around the vanadium atoms can be supposed. The crystal structure was solved from X-ray synchrotron powder data by direct space method and refined by energy minimization in the solid state employing a hybrid PBE0 functional. This crystal and molecular structure, has confirmed the presence of hexacoordinated vanadium atoms and revealed asymmetric dinuclear structure of the [V2O2(O2)4(IO3)]3− ion
Erythrocyte ankyrin contains an 89-kDa domain (residues 2-827) comprised almost entirely of 22 tandem repeats of 33 amino acids which are responsible for the high affinity interaction of ankyrin with the anion exchanger (Davis, L., and Bennett, V. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 10589-10596). The question of whether the repeats are equivalent with respect to binding to the anion exchanger was addressed using defined regions of erythrocyte and brain ankyrins expressed in bacteria. The conclusion is that the repeats are not interchangeable and that the 44 residues from 722 to 765 are essential for high affinity binding between erythrocyte ankyrin and the anion exchanger. Residues 348-765 were active whereas a polypeptide of the same size (residues 305-721) but missing the 44 residues was not active. The difference between the active and inactive polypeptides was not caused by the degree of folding based on circular dichroism spectra. The 44 residues from 722 to 765 were not sufficient for binding since ...
Erythrocyte ankyrin contains an 89-kDa domain (residues 2-827) comprised almost entirely of 22 tandem repeats of 33 amino acids which are responsible for the high affinity interaction of ankyrin with the anion exchanger (Davis, L., and Bennett, V. (1990) J. Biol. Chem. 265, 10589-10596). The question of whether the repeats are equivalent with respect to binding to the anion exchanger was addressed using defined regions of erythrocyte and brain ankyrins expressed in bacteria. The conclusion is that the repeats are not interchangeable and that the 44 residues from 722 to 765 are essential for high affinity binding between erythrocyte ankyrin and the anion exchanger. Residues 348-765 were active whereas a polypeptide of the same size (residues 305-721) but missing the 44 residues was not active. The difference between the active and inactive polypeptides was not caused by the degree of folding based on circular dichroism spectra. The 44 residues from 722 to 765 were not sufficient for binding since ...

The plant hormone indoleacetic acid (IAA or auxin) transcriptionally activates a select set of early genes. The Auxl IAA class of early auxin-responsive genes encodes a large family of short-lived, nuclear proteins. Aux/IAA polypeptides homo-and heterodimerize, and interact with auxin-response transcription factors (ARFs) via C-terminal regions conserved in both protein families. This shared region contains a predicted βαα motif similar to the prokaryotic β-Ribbon DNA binding domain, which mediates both protein dimerization and DNA recognition. Here, we show by circular dichroism spectroscopy and by chemical cross-linking experiments that recombinant peptides corresponding to the predicted βαα region of three Aux/IAA proteins from Arabidopsis thaliana contain substantial α-helical secondary structure and undergo homo- and heterotypic interactions in vitro. Our results indicate a similar biochemical function of the plant βαα domain and suggest that the βαα fold plays an important ...

Professor Hirsts research focuses on the application of computational chemistry to challenging problems in biology. This field is one of the most vibrant in computational biology, fuelled by the dramatic progress in computer hardware development and the deluge of biological data emerging from genome sequencing. His research spans a wide range, from the quantum chemistry of small molecules and the spectroscopic properties of proteins, to the application of state-of-the-art statistical and computer science methodology to problems in drug design and bioinformatics. Insights from the work on formamide and other small amides have been applied to studies of proteins and have led to significant improvements in the calculation of the circular dichroism of proteins from first principles. The success of Hirsts quantum chemical research is reflected in the number of collaborations with biomolecular experimentalists. His calculations on protein circular dichroism spectroscopy, a key technique in ...
Previously, experimental and theoretical methods were used in this research, but the current research is confined to the theoretical approach. The experimental work involved genetic engineering and hydrodynamic (e.g., sedimentation and viscosity), spectroscopic (Raman, infrared, fluorescence, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron spin resonance, ultraviolet absorption, circular dichroism, and optical rotatory dispersion), immunochemical, and other physicochemical measurements on proteins, synthetic polymers of amino acids, and model compounds, in studies of the pathways of protein folding, and the mechanism of action of thrombin on fibrinogen (an important reaction in the blood clotting process. The theoretical work involves statistical mechanical studies of aqueous solutions of amino acids and peptides, and of conformational changes in proteins and polypeptides, and empirical energy calculations to determine the stable conformations of proteins, polypeptides, enzyme-substrate complexes, ...
1. Experimental allergic encephalitogenic (EAE) protein was isolated from ox spinal cord by a modification of the method of Martenson & LeBaron (1966). 2. The protein was examined by acrylamide-gel electrophoresis and its amino acid composition determined. 3. Sedimentation-velocity runs in the ultracentrifuge indicate a molecular weight of about 15100 at pH7·8, and calculation suggests that approx. 137 amino acid residues are present per molecule. 4. Gel-filtration and diffusion studies suggest that the protein is non-globular. 5. Optical-rotatory-dispersion measurements show the protein to have no helical secondary structure even at pH values near to the isoelectric point. In the presence of triphosphoinositide, changes in the optical rotatory dispersion of the protein could be interpreted to mean that it develops a small degree of secondary structure. 6. On treatment with cyanogen bromide the experimental allergic encephalitogenic protein is split into at least two fragments, the larger of ...
The first cyclic analog of a metallothionein (MT) was prepared and analyzed by UV and (magnetic) circular dichroism spectroscopy, ESI-MS as well as NMR spectroscopy. Results reveal that the evaluated cyclic g-Ec-1 domain of the wheat MT Ec-1 retains its ability to coordinate two Zn(II) or Cd(II) ions and adopts a three-dimensional structure that is highly similar to the one of the linear wild-type form. However, the reduced flexibility of the protein backbone facilitates structure solution significantly and results in a certain stabilization of metal binding to the protein.
In this paper we investigate the effect of main chain isosteric replacement of specific amino acid residues by α-hydroxy acids. As part of a long term program specifically protected heptaglutamates were prepared and their circular dichroism and nuclear magnetic resonance spectra in various solvents were examined. From these experiments conformational preferences were deduced. We have also prepared oligo-(γ-methyl-glutamates) replacing the amino acids at specific positions along the chain with S-lactic acid and have elucidated the effect of these main chain isosteric replacements on oligopeptide structure. Analogues of collagen also have been prepared with glycolic acid replacing specific glycine residues. We synthesized the model hexamers Ac-Ala-Gly-Pro-Ala-Gly-Pro-NHMe, Ac-Ala-Glc-Pro-Ala-Gly-Pro-NHMe, and Ac-Ala-Gly-Pro-Ala-Glc-Pro-NHMe in order to study their structural characteristics under various conditions. Preliminary nuclear magnetic resonance and circular dichroism results are presented.
This thesis focuses on protein structure, dynamics and interaction and their relation to human disease. In particular, the biophysical and structural properties of both well-ordered and partially disordered proteins are studied using a range of biophysical techniques such as circular dichroism spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a human pathogen due to its multidrug resistance (MDR) caused by overexpression of efflux pump systems. This thesis describes how MDR mutations within the MexR repressor of the MexAB-OprM system reduce the DNA affinity by altering its stability with maintained structure. The oncogenic protein c-Myc is involved in many essential biological functions such as cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis and is also highly associated with several forms of human cancers, and where the N-terminal domain is regulated by a plethora of protein interactions. In this thesis the ...
Nanocrystals suspended in water can be used to record steady state and pump-probe absorption spectra, which should be useful for the study of excited states and reactive intermediates in the solid state.
LEA proteins are synthesized late during embryogenesis in plant seed development. Structurally related proteins have also been found in vegetative plant tissues under various stress conditions and in desiccation tolerant invertebrates and microbes. They thus seem to be universal dehydration stress proteins in living cells, with the exception of vertebrates. Their biological functions in stress tolerance, however, are unclear. Most of these proteins have no stable secondary structure in solution, i.e. they belong to the large group of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). We are concentrating our efforts on the largest LEA protein family (Pfam LEA_4) that has 18 members. We produce proteins of interest recombinantly in E. coli and use mainly fluorescence, far-UV circular dichroism (CD) and Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy for structural and functional characterization. To study the interactions with membranes, we use artificial lipid vesicles (liposomes) that can be produced ...

Circular permutation is a common molecular mechanism for evolution of proteins. However, such re-arrangement of secondary structure connectivity may interfere with the folding mechanism causing accumulation of folding intermediates, which in turn can lead to misfolding. We solved the crystal structure and investigated the folding pathway of a circularly permuted variant of a PDZ domain, SAP97 PDZ2. Our data illustrate how well circular permutation may work as a mechanism for molecular evolution. The circular permutant retains the overall structure and function of the native protein domain. Further, unlike most examples in the literature, this circular permutant displays a folding mechanism that is virtually identical to that of the wild type. This observation contrasts with previous data on the circularly permuted PDZ2 domain from PTP-BL, for which the folding pathway was remarkably affected by the same mutation in sequence connectivity. The different effects of this circular permutation in two

TY - JOUR. T1 - Conformational study of calf brain tubulin. AU - Lee, James C.. AU - Corfman, Debra. AU - Frigon, Ronald P.. AU - Timasheff, Serge N.. PY - 1978/1/15. Y1 - 1978/1/15. N2 - The conformation of calf brain tubulin has been monitored by circular dichroism, optical rotatory dispersion, and spectrophotometric titration as a function of pH, temperature, ligand concentrations, and denaturants. At pH 7, calf brain tubulin maintains its structural integrity between 5 and 37 °C as determined by circular dichroism. Furthermore, the presence of MgCl2 up to 1.6 × 10-2m does not induce any observable changes in the circular dichroism spectra, nor does 10-4m CaCl2. With increasing pH, the spectral data can best be described as a gradual loosening of the secondary structure between pH 7 and 9. Both spectral and titrimetric data suggest a major unfolding of tubulin between pH 9 and 10. The apparent pK of tyrosine shifts from 10.85 to 9.98 upon transferring from buffer to 6 m guanidine ...
The complete amino acid sequence of bovine S antigen (48-kDa protein) has been determined by cDNA and partial amino acid sequencing. A 1623-base-pair (bp) cDNA contains an open reading frame coding for a protein of 404 amino acids (45,275 Da). Tryptic peptides and cyanogen bromide peptides of native bovine S antigen were purified and partially sequenced. All of these peptides were accounted for in the long open reading frame. Searching of the National Biomedical Research Foundation data bank revealed no extensive sequence homology between S antigen and other proteins. However, there are local regions of sequence similarity with alpha transducin, including the sites subject to ADP-ribosylation by Bordetella pertussis and cholera toxins and the phosphoryl binding-sites. Secondary structure prediction and circular dichroic spectroscopy show that S antigen is composed predominantly of beta-sheet conformation. Acid-catalyzed methanolysis suggests the presence of low levels of carbohydrate in the ...

Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) conditions were optimized for simultaneous observation of a bimolecular qDNA and a Watson-Crick base-paired duplex DNA/RNA hybrid. The DNA sequence used was telomeric DNA, and the RNA contained the template for telomerase-mediated telomeric DNA synthesis. Addition of RNA to the quadruplex DNA (qDNA) resulted in formation of the duplex DNA/RNA hybrid. Melting profiles obtained using circular dichroism spectroscopy confirmed that the DNA/RNA hybrid exhibited greater thermal stability than the bimolecular qDNA in solution. Binding of a 13-substituted berberine (1) derivative to the bimolecular qDNA stabilized its structure as evidenced by an increase in its stability in the mass spectrometer, and an increase in its circular dichroism (CD) melting temperature of 10°C. The DNA/RNA hybrid did not bind the ligand extensively and its thermal stability was unchanged in the presence of (1). The qDNA-ligand complex resisted unfolding in the presence of excess RNA

Peptides are ideal drug candidates due to their selectivity, however the therapeutic use of peptides is limited by their poor bioavailability e.g. due to the sensitivity to proteolytic enzymes. Therefore the development of peptidomimetic compounds is an area of research which has been rapidly expanding. The ability of such compounds (also known as foldamers) to fold into defined secondary structures is well documented and facilitates mimicry of the active conformation of peptide and proteins. A certain degree of flexibility is also desirable for peptidomimetics due to the importance of disorder in functional proteins. However, the greater flexibility complicates conformational studies due to the presence of multiple conformers e.g. NMR can have extensive signal overlap. In this scenario, chiroptical techniques such as circular dichroism become an invaluable tool for conformational studies.. ...
The effect of the digging material was quantified and its properties linked to the emergence of the different shapes observed. We show here two successive morphological transitions leading to the branching of originally rounded nests, whose dynamics and frequency were strongly affected by the excavated material: cohesive substrate promoted earlier and more frequent branching of the nest. The rounded shape and the branched pattern are two extreme and opposite nest morphologies that are in competition during the nest digging. At the first transition, small buds appear on the nest wall. Later on, the main chamber expansion will stop and some buds will be enlarged, becoming lateral galleries, until the excavation completely ceases.. The transitions and the cessation of excavation are described with threshold functions that depend on nest area. The differences between the two substrates lie only in the first transition parameters (η2 and c2), which lead to earlier first transition in cohesive ...
It should be emphasized that the array of structures listed in Table 1 are but a point of departure. The competition dialysis method is completely general, and arrays of structures of particular interest can be designed as desired. The only limitations are that the structures be large enough to be retained by the dialysis tubing chosen for use, and that they are verified to be stable under the ionic conditions of the experiment. Essential quality control experiments to characterize nucleic acid samples were described in detail [41, 42] and include UV absorbance and circular dichroism spectroscopy, and thermal denaturation studies.
