Understanding Structural Flexibility of Photosynthetic Membranes
The survival and fitness of photosynthetic organisms is critically dependent on the flexible response of the thylakoid membrane, harboring the photosynthetic machinery, and environmental changes. The first part of this ...
Application of Hadamard Transform Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry to Global Metabolomics
Conventional Ion mobility mass spectrometry (IMMS) provides rapid separation and detection of complex mixtures. It is merging as a powerful analytical platform for the field of metabolomics but is limited in throughput. ...
INVESTIGATION INTO PROPERTIES OF C4 PHOTOSYNTHESIS FROM SINGLE-CELL AND KRANZ TYPE SPECIES IN SUAEDOIDEAE (CHENOPODIACEAE)
Although the majority of C4 plants have an anatomy that separates carboxylation and decarboxylation activities between two cell types (Kranz anatomy), some terrestrial plants Bienertia cycloptera, B. sinuspersici and Suaeda ...
BIOSYNTHESIS AND MODIFICATION OF UNUSUAL AMINO ACIDS THROUGH ENZYME-CATALYZED CHEMISTRY
Members of the radical S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) family of enzymes catalyze reactions that would normally be biologically impossible by utilizing SAM as a source of a primary radical. Many of the reactions catalyzed ...
UNCOVERING A REGION IN THE NIPAH VIRUS ATTACHMENT PROTEIN IMPORTANT FOR TRIGGERING MEMBRANE FUSION
Membrane fusion is essential for entry of the biomedically-important Nipah virus (NiV) into their host cells (viral-cell fusion), and for syncytia formation (cell-cell fusion), often induced by NiV infections. For NiV, ...
A STRUCTURE-BASED ANALYSIS OF BIOENGINEERING TARGETS IN PHENYL METABOLISM FOR GREEN BIOTECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS
Green biotechnology is the engineering of biological systems for use in environmental and agricultural purposes. Two major areas of environmental biotechnology are bioremediation and biofuel production. Enzyme engineering ...
