The development of rapid and bioorthogonal chemical reactions has expanded greatly the utility of bioconjugation chemistry in the service of site-selective protein labeling, even allowing molecular imaging in live cells or animals. âClickâ chemistry is particularly desirable due to its fast...
An examination of linking and blocking procedures for use in deflection cantilever array-based protein detectionDownload
In this project common linking and blocking procedures were examined for use in multiplexed deflection cantilever array-based detection of proteins. A human interferon gamma (INF-γ) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the linking and blocking...
This dissertation presents the preparation of functional bioinorganic hybrids from silicon-based quantum dots (SiQDs) and enzymes and the use of SiQDs and green fluorescent protein as ratiometric photoluminescent sensors for nerve agents. Chapter 2 discusses the preparation of water-soluble...
Development and Application of Protected Amino Acids for the Installation of Stable Post-translational Modifications Using Solid-Phase Peptide SynthesisDownload
This thesis describes the synthesis of non-canonical amino acid building blocks and their use in solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) to explore peptidic drug analogues based on natural products. We replaced sensitive functionalities found in the structure of naturally produced peptides with...
Chloride intracellular channel (CLIC) proteins comprise six members CLIC1–CLIC6 in mammals and mediate functions not fully known. Their founding member was isolated from bovine kidney using the chloride channel inhibitor indanyloxyacetic acid-94, so CLICs were assumed to be typical anion...
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are an emerging renewable and sustainable nanomaterial which has received increasing attention. They are abundant, nontoxic, biodegradable and chemically inert. CNCs have unique characteristics not met by traditional cellulose-derived materials, leading...
Intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) in proteins lack stable three dimensional structure under physiological conditions. IDRs are prevalent in nature, functionally important, and difficult to characterize experimentally due to their unstructuredness. As a result, many computational methods...
Proteins, which participate in virtually every process within cells, implement many of their functions through interactions with various ligands. Although a substantial effort in characterization and prediction of protein-ligand interactions was observed in the past two decades, these subjects...
