Screening oligosaccharide libraries against lectins using the proxy protein electrospray ionization mass spectrometry assayDownload
An electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) assay for screening carbohydrate libraries against lectins is described. The assay is based on the proxy protein ESI-MS method, which combines direct ESI-MS protein–ligand binding measurements and competitive protein binding, to simultaneously...
This work explores the energetics of intermolecular H-bonds inside a hydrophobic protein cavity. Kinetic measurements were performed on the gaseous deprotonated ions (at the −7 charge state) of complexes of bovine β-lactoglobulin (Lg) and three monohydroxylated analogs of palmitic acid (PA):...
Identifying carbohydrate ligands of a norovirus P particle using a catch and release electrospray ionization mass spectrometry assayDownload
Noroviruses (NoVs), the major cause of epidemic acute gastroenteritis, recognize human histo-blood group antigens (HBGAs), which are present as free oligosaccharides in bodily fluid or glycolipids and glycoproteins on the surfaces of cells. The subviral P particle formed by the protruding (P)...
Protein-glycolipid interactions studied in vitro using ESI-MS and nanodiscs: Insights into the mechanisms and energetics of bindingDownload
Electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) analysis combined with the use of nanodiscs (NDs) to solubilize glycolipids (GLs) has recently emerged as a promising analytical method for detecting protein–GL interactions in vitro and, when applied to libraries of GLs, ranking their...
Dissociation of multisubunit protein-ligand complexes in the gas phase: Evidence for ligand migrationDownload
The results of collision-induced dissociation (CID) experiments performed on gaseous protonated and deprotonated ions of complexes of cholera toxin B subunit homopentamer (CTB5) with the pentasaccharide (β-D-Galp-(1→3)-β-D-GalpNAc-(1→4)[α-D-Neu5Ac-(2→3)]-β-D-Galp-(1→4)-β-D-Glcp (GM1)) and...
Reliable determinations of protein-ligand interactions by direct ESI-MS measurements: Are we there yet?Download
The association-dissociation of noncovalent interactions between protein and ligands, such as other proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, DNA, or small molecules, are critical events in many biological processes. The discovery and characterization of these interactions is essential to a complete...
Dissociation kinetics of the streptavidin-biotin interaction measured using direct electrospray ionization mass spectrometry analysisDownload
Dissociation rate constants (koff) for the model high affinity interaction between biotin (B) and the homotetramer of natural core streptavidin (S4) were measured at pH 7 and temperatures ranging from 15 to 45 °C using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Two different approaches...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm) is one of the most completely studied “smart” polymers due to its unique reversible thermoresponsivity. That is, when pNIPAm in water is heated > ~31°C, it transits from a random coil to a globule conformation; this transition is reversed when T < ~31°C. This...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) microgel-based etalons and etalon arrays for determining the molecular weight of polymers in solutionDownload
Positively and/or negatively charged poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-based microgels were deposited on a single substrate and isolated regions of Au overlayers were deposited on top of the microgels. Each spatially isolated Au overlayer region had a different thickness to make an etalon array. We...
Protein interactions with glycolipids are implicated in diverse cellular processes. However, the study of protein–glycolipid complexes remains a significant experimental challenge. Here, we describe a powerful new assay that combines electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and...
