Metallo-Cyclodextrin Complexes For The Separation Of Chiral Materials, Synthesis And Characterisation, Ciaran Francis Potter Jun 2007

Metallo-Cyclodextrin Complexes For The Separation Of Chiral Materials, Synthesis And Characterisation, Ciaran Francis Potter

Doctoral

The processes of separation and detection of chiral compounds are extremely important in the pharmaceutical industry. This study aims to investigate a safe and variable methods for the separation of the two enantiomers of the drug DOPA (Dihydroxyphenylalanine). L-DOPA is the most effective drug at present used to combat Parkinson’s disease while D-DOPA is inactive, thus for drug efficacy only the single biologically active enantiomer should be present in the formulation. In this work, cyclodextrins (CDS) were utilised fro their ability to act as a host for guest species, acting in the role as both a first and second ...


General In Vivo Assay For The Study Of Integrin Cell Membrane Receptor Microclustering, Emily A. Smith, Thomas A. Bunch, Danny L. Brower Mar 2007

General In Vivo Assay For The Study Of Integrin Cell Membrane Receptor Microclustering, Emily A. Smith, Thomas A. Bunch, Danny L. Brower

Chemistry Publications

A method for measuring the microclustering of a class of cell surface receptors called integrins is reported. Integrins are proteins involved in bidirectional signaling across the cell membrane and are important in cell adhesion, growth, and survival. Their activity is regulated by changes in protein conformation and protein clustering. The developed in vivo clustering assay uses fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and has the benefit of requiring a single cloning step to generate FRET donors and acceptors that can be used to measure the clustering of a series of integrin mutants. The FRET reporters contain extracellular donor or acceptor fluorescent ...

Preliminary Structural Studies Of The Transcriptional Regulator Cmer From Campylobacter Jejuni, Chih-Chia Su, Feng Shi, Ruoyu Gu, Ming Li, Gerry Mcdermott, Edward Yu, Qijing Zhang Jan 2007

Preliminary Structural Studies Of The Transcriptional Regulator Cmer From Campylobacter Jejuni, Chih-Chia Su, Feng Shi, Ruoyu Gu, Ming Li, Gerry Mcdermott, Edward Yu, Qijing Zhang

In Campylobacter jejuni, a Gram-negative bacterial pathogen causing gastroenteritis in humans, the CmeR regulatory protein controls transcription of the multidrug transporter gene operon cmeABC. CmeR belongs to the TetR family of transcriptional regulators. The 210-residue CmeR consists of two functional motifs: an N-terminal DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain. It is predicted that the DNA-binding domain interacts directly with target promoters, while the C-terminal motif interacts with inducing ligands (such as bile salts). As an initial step towards confirming this structural model, recombinant CmeR protein containing a 6×His tag at the N-terminus was crystallized. Crystals of ligand-free CmeR ...


Structure And Thermodynamics Of A Conserved U2 Snrna Domain From Yeast And Human, Dipali G. Sashital, Vincenzo Venditti, Courtney G. Angers, Gabriel Cornilescu, Samuel E. Butcher Jan 2007

Structure And Thermodynamics Of A Conserved U2 Snrna Domain From Yeast And Human, Dipali G. Sashital, Vincenzo Venditti, Courtney G. Angers, Gabriel Cornilescu, Samuel E. Butcher

The spliceosome is a dynamic ribonucleoprotein complex responsible for the removal of intron sequences from pre-messenger RNA. The highly conserved 5′ end of the U2 small nuclear RNA (snRNA) makes key base-pairing interactions with the intron branch point sequence and U6 snRNA. U2 stem I, a stem–loop located in the 5′ region of U2, has been implicated in spliceosome assembly and may modulate the folding of the U2 and U6 snRNAs in the spliceosome active site. Here we present the NMR structures of U2 stem I from human and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. These sequences represent the two major classes of ...

The assessment of corrosion on the USS Arizona included the pioneering development of a minimum-impact cost-effective technique to determine the corrosion rate of steel-hulled shipwrecks in seawater. The technique, with potential application worldwide, is illustrated in this paper with the application to a World War II Japanese midget submarine submerged in deep waters off the Oahu, Hawaii, coast.


Structure And Biosynthesis Of Heat-Stable Antifungal Factor (Hsaf), A Broad-Spectrum Antimycotic With A Novel Mode Of Action, Fengan Yu, Kathia Zaleta-River, Xiangcheng Zhu, Justin Huffman, Jeffrey C. Millet, Steven D. Harris, Gary Y. Yuen, Xing-Cong Li, Liangcheng Du Jan 2007

Structure And Biosynthesis Of Heat-Stable Antifungal Factor (Hsaf), A Broad-Spectrum Antimycotic With A Novel Mode Of Action, Fengan Yu, Kathia Zaleta-River, Xiangcheng Zhu, Justin Huffman, Jeffrey C. Millet, Steven D. Harris, Gary Y. Yuen, Xing-Cong Li, Liangcheng Du

Faculty Publications -- Chemistry Department

A screen for antifungal compounds from Lysobacter enzymogenes strain C3, a bacterial biological control agent of fungal diseases, has previously led to the isolation of heat-stable antifungal factor (HSAF). HSAF exhibits inhibitory activities against a wide range of fungal species and shows a novel mode of antifungal action by disrupting the biosynthesis of a distinct group of sphingolipids. We have now determined the chemical structure of HSAF, which is identical to that of dihydromaltophilin, an antifungal metabolite with a unique macrocyclic lactam system containing a tetramic acid moiety and a 5,5,6-tricyclic skeleton. We have also identified the genetic ...
