  • Thermal- and urea-induced unfolding processes of glutathione S-transferase by molecular dynamics simulation

    Thermal‐ and urea‐induced unfolding processes of glutathione S‐transferase by molecular dynamics simulation

    Sequence and structure of sj26GST. Upper panel: Sequence of sj26GST and the secondary structure. Lower panel: Left: Structure of sj26GST subunit (PDB ID: 1GTA), helices was colored in blue and sheets colored in red; and Right: Contacts map, the distance of the two non-sequential atoms less than 0.6 nm was represented. Contacts between helices colored in blue and between sheets in red.

  • Proteins as supramolecular building blocks: Nterm-Lsr2 as a new protein tecton

    Proteins as supramolecular building blocks: Nterm‐Lsr2 as a new protein tecton

    This figure shows the triggerable assembly of Nterm-Lsr2; Partial proteolysis with trypsin cleaves between Lys-3 and Lys-4. Truncation at this point allows the next 6 residues to form an amphipathic β-strand with the neighboring dimer. Protein structure (PDB ID: 4E1R) generated using Pymol 1.6.x.

  • Nanofibrous nonmulberry silk/PVA scaffold for osteoinduction and osseointegration

    Nanofibrous nonmulberry silk/PVA scaffold for osteoinduction and osseointegration

    The cytoskeletal actin organization and distribution in MG-63 cells grown on nanofibrous constructs for 14 days. The confocal images were taken after staining the actin filaments with FITC-phalloidin (red) and counterstaining with Hoechst 33342 (green, but appears as yellow here) for nuclei. The greater cell-cell contact was observed in 2% silk fibroin blended matrices compared to 4% silk fibroin blended matrices and PVA. Scale bar = 100 μm.

  • The effect of local dynamics of Atto 390-labeled lysozyme on fluorescence anisotropy modeling

    The effect of local dynamics of Atto 390‐labeled lysozyme on fluorescence anisotropy modeling

    Top: Time-dependent Euler angle motions of the Atto 390 ligand shown for pitch (black), roll (red), and yaw (blue). Bottom: RMSD values of hen lysozyme (black solid) and Atto 390 (black dotted) with the initial frame as reference for all values.
