Sds Non-Acrylamide Polymeric Gel-Filled Capillary Electrophoresis For Molecular Size Separation Of Protein, Devon Andres Aug 1993

Sds Non-Acrylamide Polymeric Gel-Filled Capillary Electrophoresis For Molecular Size Separation Of Protein, Devon Andres

Honors Theses

Sodium dodecyl sulfide (SDS) non-acrylamide gel-filled capillary columns are a new technology being used for analysis and separation of biotechnology-derived proteins. This research was to compare this new technology to the current methods of SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and high-performance size-exclusion chromatography (HPSEC). The molecular mass of four different recombinant proteins were determined by two commercialized SDS non-acrylamide gel-filled capillary columns, SDS-PAGE, and HPSEC. The data obtained showed that the SDS non-acrylamide gel-filled capillary columns were compatible with the SDS-PAGE technique for molecular mass determination. HPSEC was shown to be unreliable for molecular weight determination. SDS non-acrylamide gel-filled capillary ...


Telomere Processing In Euplotes, Joris Robert Vermeesch, Dewight Williams, Carolyn M. Price Jan 1993

Telomere Processing In Euplotes, Joris Robert Vermeesch, Dewight Williams, Carolyn M. Price

Faculty Publications -- Chemistry Department

In Euplotes crassus millions of telomeres are synthesized during the sexual phase of the life cycle. Since these newly synthesized telomeres are longer than normal macronuclear telomeres, they must be trimmed to the mature size. We have examined the timing and mechanism of this trimming step. We have shown that a sudden decrease in telomere length takes place at a specific time during macronuclear development. The decrease in telomere length is not caused by incomplete replication of the most terminal DNA sequences; rather it is the result of an active processing event that occurs independently of DNA replication. The developmentally ...


Preparation Of Functionalized Polymers Utilizng A Soluble Highly Reactive Form Of Calcium, Reuben D. Rieke Jan 1993

Preparation Of Functionalized Polymers Utilizng A Soluble Highly Reactive Form Of Calcium, Reuben D. Rieke

Faculty Publications -- Chemistry Department

Calcium-substituted polymeric reagents are provided. These reagents can be prepared via the oxidative addition of a soluble highly reactive calcium species to organic and inorganic polymers containing alkyl, aryl, or alkylaryl pendent groups substituted with halide atoms, cyanide molecules, 1,3-dienes, or any conjugated poly unsaturated system. Preferably, the polymer is a cross linked p-bromopolystyrene, p-chloropolystyrene, p fluoropolystyrene, or chloromethylated polystyrene. Preferably, the soluble highly reactive calcium species is prepared from the reduction of Ca(II) salts with an alkali metal arene, such as lithium biphenylide. These calcium-substituted polymeric reagents react with a variety of electrophiles to yield functionalized polymers ...


Processes For Producing Doxorubicin, Daunomycinone, And Derivatives Of Doxorubicin, Desmond M. S. Wheeler Jan 1993

Processes For Producing Doxorubicin, Daunomycinone, And Derivatives Of Doxorubicin, Desmond M. S. Wheeler

Faculty Publications -- Chemistry Department

To produce doxorubicin and its analogues methyl 3alpha, 5alpha-dihydroxy-5beta-(trimethylsilylethynyl)- 2alpha-nitromethylcyclohexane-1beta-carboxylate acetonide is condensed with 1,4-dihydro-4,4,5-trimethoxy-1-oxonaphthalene in the presence of 1,8-diazabicyclo-5.4.0]undec-7-ene in an aprotic solvent to produce 3-(2beta-carbomethoxy-4-beta-ethynyl-4-alpha, 6alpha-(di-O-isopropylidenyl)cyclohexanyl-1-yl)-nitromethyl-4,4,5-trimethoxy-1-oxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene; which is cyclized to produce 9beta ethynyl-12-hydroxy-7alpha, 9alpha-(di-O-iso propylidenyl)-6-nitro-4,5,5-trimethoxy-5,5a,6- 6a,7,8,9,10,10a,11-decahydro -11-naphthacenone. The decahydro-11-naphthacenone is converted to 7alpha 9alpha,(di-O-isopropyl-idenyl)-4,5-dimethoxy-9beta ethynyl-12-hydroxy-6-nitro-6,6a,7,8,9,10,10a, 11 octahydro-11, -naphthacenone. The octahydro-11 naphthacenone is oxidized to 7alpha-9alpha, (di-O-iso propyl-idenyl)-9beta-ethynyl-11-hydroxy-4-methoxy-6- nitro-7,8 ...
