Developing Novel Protein-based Materials using Ultrabithorax: Production, Characterization, and Functionalization
Compared to 'conventional' materials made from metal, glass, or ceramics, protein-based materials have unique mechanical properties. Furthermore, the morphology, mechanical properties, and functionality of protein-based ...
Influence of Peroxisomal Import and Receptor Recycling of Peroxisomal Function
Peroxisomes compartmentalize a variety of important metabolic reactions including fatty acid β-oxidation and the related process of IBA β-oxidation. Peroxisomal proteins are encoded by nuclear genes and must be ...
Ligand Diffusion Pathways and Mechanisms for Regulating Oxygen Affinity in Two Model Invertebrate Globins: The E7 Gate and Apolar Tunnel
The major pathway for O 2 binding to mammalian myoglobins (Mbs) and hemoglobins (Hbs) involves transient outward movements of the distal histidine (HisE7), which allows ligand migration into the distal portion of the heme ...
