Identification and insertion of 3-carbon bridges in protein disulfide bonds : A computational approach
More than 42,000 3D structures of proteins are available on the Internet. We have shown that the chemical insertion of a 3-carbon bridge across the native disulfide bond of a protein or peptide can enable the site-specific ...
Immunomodulatory effects of schistosome cercarial interactions with human keratinocytes and Langerhans cells
The human parasite Schistosoma mansoni is known to modulate host immune responses in order to promote its own survival. However, studies investigating the interaction between the skin-invading cercarial stage and cells of ...
The phagocytic capacity of neurones
Phagocytosis is defined as the ingestion of particulates over 0.5 microm in diameter and is associated with cells of the immune system such as macrophages or monocytes. Neurones are not generally recognized to be phagocytic. ...
Champagne wine polyphenols protect primary cortical neurons against peroxynitrite-induced injury
White wines are generally low in polyphenol content as compared to red wines. However, Champagne wines have been shown to contain relatively high amounts of phenolic acids that may exert protective cellular actions in vivo. ...
The SECURE project – Stem canker of oilseed rape: : molecular methods and mathematical modelling to deploy durable resistance
Modelling done during the SECURE project has demonstrated the dynamic nature of the interaction between phoma stem canker (Leptosphaeria maculans), the oilseed rape host (Brassica napus) and the environment. Experiments ...
An LFER study of the protolytic equilibria of 4-aryl-2,4-dioxobutanoic acids in aqueous solutions
The protolytic equilibria of 13 4-aryl-2,4-dioxobutanoic acids (ADKs) were spectrophotometrically studied in aqueous solutions in the pH range 1-9 at 25±1°C and an ionic strength of 0.1 mol l (NaCl), with the exception of ...
Effect of metronidazole on growth and toxin production by epidemic Clostridium difficile PCR ribotypes 001 and 027 in a human gut model
We compared the behaviour of Clostridium difficile PCR ribotypes 001 and 027 in a human gut model, and compared the responses to metronidazole exposure.
