  1. Nonmonotonic Hydration Behavior of Bovine Serum Albumin in Alcohol/Water Binary Mixtures: A Terahertz Spectroscopic Investigation

    Dr. Dipak Kumar Das, Debasish Das Mahanta and Dr. Rajib Kumar Mitra

    Version of Record online: 1 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601217

    Stay hydrated! The collective hydration of bovine serum albumin (BSA) in the presence of alcohols with varying carbon-chain lengths is studied by using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy. We observe that the terahertz absorption coefficient (α) fluctuates periodically as a function of alcohol concentration at a fixed protein concentration, whereas nonmonotonic changes occurs in α for a fixed alcohol concentration with increasing protein concentrations.

  2. Mechanistic Insights into Ethylene Transformations on Ir(111) by Density Functional Calculations and Microkinetic Modeling

    Dr. Xue-Rong Shi, Dr. Haijuan Kong, Dr. Shengguang Wang, Dr. Hui Wang, Prof. Zhangfeng Qin and Prof. Jianguo Wang

    Full coverage: Ethylidyne, ethane, and carbon monomer formations from ethylene over Ir(111) at different coverages were investigated using density functional theory methods and microkinetic modeling. Electronic structures were studied to explain the adsorption behavior.

  4. Stabilization Effect of Amino Acid Side Chains in Peptide Assemblies on Graphite Studied by Scanning Tunneling Microscopy

    Self-help groups for peptides: A novel, simple approach is used to analyze the stabilization effect of amino acid side chains on peptide assemblies. The structures of 4,4′-bipyridyl–polypeptide co-assemblies on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite are studied using scanning tunneling microscopy. The lamellae widths of peptides are directly related to the stabilization effect of the side chains. This work will provide molecular insights into the propensity for aggregation of amyloid peptides.

  5. Molecule Counts in Localization Microscopy with Organic Fluorophores

    Counting with Alexa Fluor 647: Direct stochastical optical reconstruction microscopy is mainly based on the blinking of the used organic fluorophore. Via counting the number of blinking events and applying a statistical model, the underlying number of fluorophores can be determined.
