Role oflac repressor hinge region and operator DNA sequence in complex formation
A study of the lac repressor hinge region was undertaken to decipher its role in the function of DNA binding and communication between binding sites within the protein. Specific mutations were designed, and the proteins ...
Investigations of CVD diamond-growth mechanisms using computer techniques: A. Equilibrium calculation program TEQWORKS. B. Molecular mechanism program MM3
Equilibrium concentrations of the major species in conventional and halogen assisted CVD diamond synthesis systems were calculated and the results are presented in this thesis. The optimal diamond deposition conditions ...
Photocycloaddition of quinones to olefins: Mechanism and applications
Photochemical reactions between benzoquinones and alkylidenecyclohexanes proceed regioselectively. Regioselectivity is determined by the conformational properties of the cyclic olefin. Photocycloadducts thus obtained may ...
Stress as a means to enhance secondary metabolite productivity and to probe metabolic pathways
The objectives of this research were to study metabolic pathways in C. roseus hairy root cultures, and to enhance secondary metabolite productivity using fungal elicitation as the technique. The effects of age of inoculum ...
Surface and coordination chemistry related to GaAs
The vapor phase structures of Al(tBU)3 and Ga(tBU)3 have been investigated by gas phase electron diffraction and consist of planar three-coordinate monomers. Salient structural parameters (ra) include: Al-C = 2.005(3) A, ...
