TY - JOUR. T1 - Desalting electroeluted proteins with hydrophilic interaction chromatography. AU - Jeno, P.. AU - Scherer, P. E.. AU - Manningkrieg, U.. AU - Horst, M.. PY - 1993/12. Y1 - 1993/12. N2 - We describe a chromatographic procedure for the removal of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) from proteins isolated by electroelution. It involves chromatography of electroeluates on poly(2-hydroxyethyl-aspartamide) silica, a support initially developed for hydrophilic interaction chromatography. The electroeluate, dialyzed against ammonium bicarbonate-SDS buffer, is directly injected onto the column, which is equilibrated in an n-propanol concentration greater than 60%. Bound proteins are eluted with a gradient of decreasing n-propanol. This procedure removes essentially all of the Coomassie blue-related contaminants and separates SDS from the protein. Due to the use of volatile buffer systems, the proteins are recovered in completely salt-free form, which facilitates further protein manipulation. ...
Glycosylations range among the most common posttranslational modifications with an estimated 50% of all proteins supposed to be glycosylated. These modifications are required for essential cellular processes including cell-cell recognition, protein structure and activity, e.g., of surface receptors, as well as subcellular localization of proteins. Beside the elucidation of the carbohydrate structures, the annotation of glycosylation sites is of primary interest as a basis for subsequent functional characterization. Although mass spectrometry is the method of choice for large-scale analysis of glycosylation sites, it requires initial enrichment of glycopeptides prior mass spectrometric detection in most cases. In this paper, we present a novel approach for glycopeptide enrichment by electrostatic repulsion hydrophilic interaction chromatography (ERLIC). Glycopeptides were separated from the bulk of non-modified peptides and gradually eluted from the stationary phase with potential for isoform resolution.

The protein encoded by this gene, glutathione S-transferase (GST) theta 1 (GSTT1), is a member of a superfamily of proteins that catalyze the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a variety of electrophilic and hydrophobic compounds. Human GSTs can be divided into five main classes: alpha, mu, pi, theta, and zeta. The theta class includes GSTT1, GSTT2, and GSTT2B. GSTT1 and GSTT2/GSTT2B share 55% amino acid sequence identity and may play a role in human carcinogenesis. The GSTT1 gene is haplotype-specific and is absent from 38% of the population. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015 ...

The structural and energetic consequences of modifications to the hydrophobic cavity of interleukin 1-beta (IL-1beta) are described. Previous reports demonstrated that the entirely hydrophobic cavity of IL-1beta contains positionally disordered water. To gain a better understanding of the nature of this cavity and the water therein, a number of mutant proteins were constructed by site-directed mutagenesis, designed to result in altered hydrophobicity of the cavity. These mutations involve the replacement of specific phenylalanine residues, which circumscribe the cavity, with tyrosine, tryptophan, leucine and isoleucine. Using differential scanning calorimetry to determine the relative stabilities of the wild-type and mutant proteins, we found all of the mutants to be destabilizing. X-ray crystallography was used to identify the structural consequences of the mutations. No clear correlation between the hydrophobicities of the specific side-chains introduced and the resulting stabilities was found ...
Progesterone, also known as gesterol or crinone, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as gluco/mineralocorticoids, progestogins and derivatives. These are steroids with a structure based on a hydroxylated prostane moiety. Thus, progesterone is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. Progesterone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Progesterone is a potentially toxic compound ...

Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world and its consumption has been associated with numerous potential health benefits. Factors such as fermentation methods, geographical origin and season can affect the primary and secondary metabolite composition of tea. In this study, a hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) method coupled to high resolution mass spectrometry in both positive and negative ionisation modes was developed and optimised. The method when combined with principal component analysis to analyse three different types of tea, successfully distinguished samples into different categories, and provided evidence of the metabolites which differed between them. The accurate mass and high resolution attributes of the mass spectrometric data were utilised and relative quantification data were extracted post-data acquisition on 18 amino acids, showing significant differences in amino acid concentrations between tea types and countries. This study highlights the ...

The present invention provides a method of cementing in a subterranean formation that includes providing a cement composition that includes water, cement, and a fluid loss control additive that includes a water-soluble hydrophobically modified polymer or a hydrophilically modified water-soluble polymer; placing the cement composition into the subterranean formation; and allowing the cement composition to set therein. In certain embodiments, the water-soluble hydrophobically modified polymer or the hydrophilically modified water-soluble polymer may include a polymer backbone that comprises polar heteroatoms. In another embodiment, the water-soluble hydrophobically modified polymer may be a reaction product of a hydrophobic compound with a polyvinylamine, a poly(vinylamine/vinyl alcohol), or an alkyl acrylate polymer.
Aggregation of the yeast Kluyveromyces bulgaricus is mediated by the galactose-specific lectin KbCWL1. This lectin contains hydrophobic amino acids and its activity is calcium dependent. A specific fluorescent probe, 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulfonic acid in the free acid form (ANS; Sigma Chemical Co., St. Louis, Missouri), was used to study the hydrophobic areas on the cellular surface of K. bulgaricus. Changes in surface hydrophobicity during the growth and aggregation of yeast cells were studied. Surface hydrophobicity increased during growth and depended on the amount of yeast cells in the culture medium. During growth, the size of the hydrophobic areas on the cell surface was measured using ANS and was found to increase with the percentage of flocculating yeasts. Our results strongly suggest that the hydrophobic areas of the cell walls of yeast cells are involved in the aggregation of K. bulgaricus.
The optimal concentration of tenofovir DF that needs to be delivered from an IVR to confer protection against HIV and HSV is unknown. Results from the CAPRISA 004 trial indicate that concentrations >1 μg/mL in CVL were associated with a significant reduction in HIV incidence compared with placebo [2.4 versus 9.1 per 100 person-years; incidence rate ratio (IRR)=0.26, 95% CI 0.05-0.80, P=0.01].29 These data, combined with in vitro dose responses, suggest that delivery of 0.1-1 mg/day of tenofovir DF from an IVR will likely lead to substantially higher intracellular levels of TFV-DP than intermittent gel dosing. Both silicone and EVA have been used as IVR matrices for the delivery of hydrophobic compounds with logP values >3.30,31 However, drugs like tenofovir DF that are relatively hydrophilic do not have appreciable solubility in EVA or silicone and therefore the drug release is low.9 Earlier work in our laboratory has shown the capability to deliver both hydrophilic and hydrophobic compounds ...
article{0f55d48c-6744-4fed-8c52-9bc57e9a4281, abstract = {The thickening effect of a hydrophobically modified polymer in an aqueous solution is dependent on intermolecular hydrophobic associations, and if the polymer concentration is significantly above the overlap concentration also on chain entanglements. In this investigation we have added different cyclodextrins (CD) in order to decouple hydrophobic polymer-polymer associations via inclusion complex formation with the polymer hydrophobic tails. Both size and hydrophobicity of the cavity of the CD-molecules were found to have an effect on the process. In addition, the influence of chemical structure of the polymer hydrophobic tails was investigated. Either a linear C-14-chain or a more bulky nonylphenol group was used. The viscosity as a function of CD-concentration first decreased strongly, and then attained a constant value. At excess CD the viscosity became virtually the same as in a solution of the unmodified parent polymer, provided that ...

The capability to separate and analyze a wide range of proteins in complex systems remains a prime requirement in the biochemical sciences. Intact protein separations are especially difficult as these large molecules can present different conformations, association states and amphoteric features with chromatographic surfaces. Combining high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and ultrahigh pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) with mass spectrometry (MS) has proven to be an effective approach for solving difficult problems involving protein analyses. Considerable effort has been made to develop columns for separating proteins with high efficiency for reversed-phase, ion-exchange, size-exclusion chromatography, hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC), and hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC). Even so, many situations still exist where insufficient resolution is available for accurate protein analysis even when high-resolution MS is available. This presentation provides ...

Aqueous dispersions of monoolein (MO) with a commercial hydrophobically modified ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose ether (HMEHEC) have been investigated with respect to the morphologies of the liquid crystalline nanoparticles. Only very low proportions of HMEHEC are accepted in the cubic and lamellar phases of the monoolein−water system. Due to the broad variation of composition and size of the commercial polymer, no other single-phase regions were found in the quasi-ternary system. Interactions of MO with different fractions of the HMEHEC sample induced the formation of lamellar and reversed hexagonal phases, identified from SAXD, polarization microscopy, and cryogenic TEM examinations. In excess water (more than 90 wt %) coarse dispersions are formed more or less spontaneously, containing particles of cubic phase from a size visible by the naked eye to small particles observed by cryoTEM. At high polymer/MO ratios, vesicles were frequently observed, often oligo-lamellar with inter-lamellar ...
Polysaccharides from Baizhu were separated by preparative hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography on an XAmide column and its components were characterised as inulin-type polysaccharides with structures of alpha-D-glucopyranosyl-[-(1 -> 2) -beta-D-fructofuranosyl-](n-1)-(1 -> 2) -beta-D-fructofuranoside (n=3-20) by a combinatory application of electrospray-ionisation mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance and IR, as well as the chemical analysis of monosaccharide composition. In addition, the contents of nystose and 1F-fructofranosylnystose in the crude and purified Baizhu polysaccharides were determined to be 5.81%, 4.92% and 0.70%, 0.84% (w/w), respectively. In addition, MTT assay indicated that the Baizhu polysaccharides could effectively promote spleen lymphocyte transformation for the enhancement of organism immunity. It is for the first time that inulin-type polysaccharides were discovered in Baizhu and its immuno-enhancing activity was reported, which is a vigorous evidence ...

Theadsorption of hydrophobicallymodifiedpolyelectrolytes(HMPEs)athydrophobicsurfaceswasstudied by ellipsometry. Both the adsorbed amount of polymer Γ and the layer thickness d were measured as a function of time. The HMPEs are polyacrylates carrying various fractions of grafted dodecyl chains. Hydrophobic interactions are responsible for the adsorption (unmodified polyacrylate does not adsorb at the surface). The surface anchoring of grafted dodecyl groups is coupled with the repulsion of charged acrylate groups. This results in the formation of large loops at the interface, separated by very short trains, since the probability to have two or more successive alkyl groups grafted at the polymer chain is small. Asinthecase ofordinarypolyelectrolytes,themeanthickness oftheadsorbedlayerdecreaseswithincreasing solution ionic strength. Changesof theHMPEchemical composition (molar ratio,X, of alkyl units attached on the polyacrylate backbone) affect the adsorbed layer structure in a complex fashion. HMPEs
Capillary origami uses surface tension to fold and shape solid films and membranes into three-dimensional structures. It uses the fact that solid surfaces, no matter how hydrophobic, will tend to adhere to and wrap around the surface of a liquid. In this work, we report that a superhydrophobic coating can be created, which can completely suppress wrapping as a contacting water droplet evaporates. We also show that using a wetting azeotropic solution of allyl alcohol, which penetrates the surface features, can enhance liquid adhesion and create more powerful Capillary Origami. These findings create the possibility of selectively shaping membrane substrates.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Hydrophobic forces and the length limit of foldable protein domains. AU - Lin, Milo M.. AU - Zewail, Ahmed H.. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2012 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2012/6/19. Y1 - 2012/6/19. N2 - To find the native conformation (fold), proteins sample a subspace that is typically hundreds of orders of magnitude smaller than their full conformational space. Whether such fast folding is intrinsic or the result of natural selection, and what is the longest foldable protein, are open questions. Here, we derive the average conformational degeneracy of a lattice polypeptide chain in water and quantitatively show that the constraints associated with hydrophobic forces are themselves sufficient to reduce the effective conformational space to a size compatible with the folding of proteins up to approximately 200 amino acids long within a biologically reasonable amount of time. This size range is in general agreement with the experimental protein domain length ...
This chapter discusses the aspects of bioremediation that are related to metabolism of recalcitrant chemicals by bacteria, leaving out also detoxification and immobilization of metal ions and metalloids. The most frequent types of sites amenable to bioremediation include soil, freshwater, seawater, and sediments. The chapter talks about the instances where recalcitrant and/or xenobiotic compounds are endowed with chemical properties that cause a deleterious effect on the catalytic microorganisms present in the site-regardless of whether they can be ultimately metabolized. The chemicals at stake include metals, chaotropic agents, aromatics, and hydrophobic compounds. These stressors can be grouped based on their effect on bacterial metabolism. Heat shock-like stress and oxidative damage are certainly the two more prevalent conditions endured by environmental bacteria during in situ biodegradation of chemical waste. This is true for singular stressors as well as for mixtures of them, the most frequent

TY - JOUR. T1 - DPD simulation of protein conformations. T2 - From α-helices to β-structures. AU - Vishnyakov, Aleksey. AU - Talaga, David S.. AU - Neimark, Alexander V.. PY - 2012/11/1.

The model mimics hydrogen bonding that stabilizes α-helical and β-structures using dissociable Morse bonds between quasiparticles representing the peptide groups amenable to hydrogen bonding. We demonstrate the capabilities of the model by simulating transitions between coil-like, globular, α-helical, and β-hairpin configurations of model peptides, varying Morse potential parameters, the hydrophobicities of residue side chains, and pH, which determines the charges of residue side chains. We construct a model triblock polypeptide mimicking the sequence of residues α-synuclein at two different pHs. The conformations of this model polypeptide depend on pH similarly to the behavior observed experimentally. ...
Disclosed are hydrophilic coatings covalently bound to hydrophobic surfaces as well as methods for their production. To form the coated surfaces, a compound is provided which comprises a hydrophobic domain including an unsaturated group and a hydrophilic domain. Also provided is a hydrophobic surface comprising unsaturated groups. Molecules of the compound are adsorbed onto the hydrophobic surface, and the unsaturated groups in the hydrophobic domains of molecules of the compound then are covalently crosslinked to the unsaturated groups on the hydrophobic surface by a free radical reaction. In one embodiment, hydrophilic coatings may be covalently attached to hydrophobic polymers such as divinylbenzene crosslinked polystyrene. Hydrophilic coatings covalently attached to hydrophobic surfaces are obtained which are stable, which may be readily derivatized, and which are useful in a wide range of chromatography applications.
Abstract - Coalescing drops spontaneously jump out of plane on a variety of biological and synthetic superhydrophobic surfaces, with potential applications ranging from self-cleaning materials to self-sustained condensers. To investigate the mechanism of the self-propelled jumping, we report three-dimensional phase-field simulations of two identical spherical drops coalescing on a flat surface with a contact angle of 180°. The numerical simulations capture the spontaneous jumping process which follows the capillary-inertial scaling. The out-of-plane directionality is shown to result from the counter action of the substrate to the impingement of the liquid bridge between the coalescing drops. A viscous cutoff to the capillary-inertial velocity scaling is identified when the Ohnesorge number of the initial drops is around 0.1, but the corresponding viscous cutoff radius is too small to be tested experimentally. Compared to experiments on both superhydrophobic and Leidenfrost surfaces, our ...
A direct comparison of two strategies for designing antimicrobial polymers is presented. Previously, we published several reports on the use of facially amphiphilic (FA) monomers which led to polynorbornenes with excellent antimicrobial activities and selectivities. Our polymers obtained by copolymerization of structurally similar segregated monomers, in which cationic and non-polar moieties reside on separate repeat units, led to polymers with less pronounced activities. A wide range of polymer amphiphilicities was surveyed by pairing a cationic oxanorbornene with eleven different non-polar monomers and varying the comonomer feed ratios. Their properties were tested using antimicrobial assays and copolymers possessing intermediate hydrophobicities were the most active. Polymer-induced leakage of dye-filled liposomes and microscopy of polymer-treated bacteria support a membrane-based mode of action. From these results there appears to be profound differences in how a polymer made from FA ...
Hydrophobic or amphiphilic tetrapyrrole sensitizers are taken up by cells and are usually located in cellular lipid membranes. Singlet oxygen is photogenerated by the sensitizer and it diffuses in the membrane and causes oxidative damage to membrane components. In this talk I shall describe two aspects of the localized photochemistry that is occurring in the confined membranes medium. Singlet oxygens intrinsic lifetime in the membrane is 15-35 µs, depending on the constituting lipids, while its lifetime in H2O is 3 µs. Therefore, any oxidative damage that singlet oxygen might cause to membrane proteins or lipids, must occur while it diffuses in the membrane, before escaping out of the lipid phase. Thus, the efficiency of photosensitization depends, among others, on the vertical location of the sensitizer in the membrane. We employed several classes of tetrapyrrole sensitizers (porphyrins, chlorins, phthalocyanines and porphyrazines), that were modified to alter their hydrophobicities and ...

In the compound interacts while using the Cys496, that is extremely exclusive on the Etk. Only eight kinases from the 491 kinases which were analyzed inside a previous review [29,30] present Threonine and Cysteine at these positions.

Lipids are characterized by their amphipathic character. Because of this, they typically arrange in a bilayer configuration. The hydrophobic tails, however, also serve as a reservoir of metabolic energy, undergoing beta-oxidation in the Krebs cycle. In cells, lipids are stored in specialized organelles called lipid droplets (LDs) after esterification of their polar head with an additional hydrophobic chain. Thus, LDs can be considered as the dispersed phase of oil-emulsions-in-water, with the cytosol as the continuous phase. Our understanding of the molecular properties of LDs is very limited, and we are currently investigating how their function and behaviour is modulated by their unique chemical properties.. ...
