Kinetic Insights into the Elongation Reaction of Actin Filaments as a Function of Temperature, Pressure, and Macromolecular Crowding
Mimi Gao and Prof. Dr. Roland Winter
3D landscape of F-actin elongation: The effect of macromolecular crowding on the elongation kinetics at the pointed end of double-stranded helical actin filaments (F-actin), as a function of temperature and pressure, is explored. This study sheds new light on the transition of monomeric actin (G-actin) into F-actin, which is encountered in vivo in normal environments, as well as in the deep sea.
Electrochemical Biosensor Based on Nanoporous Au/CoO Core–Shell Material with Synergistic Catalysis
Chao Zhang, Bin Huang, Prof. Lihua Qian, Prof. Songliu Yuan, Prof. Shuai Wang and Prof. Rong Chen
It’s a CoO: A flexible nanoporous Au/CoO film is configured as a high-performance electrode for electrochemical biosensing, which is evidenced by superior sensitivity for glucose detection and H2O2 sensing.
Nanothermometry: From Microscopy to Thermal Treatments
Dr. Haiying Zhou, Monica Sharma, Dr. Oleg Berezin, Dr. Darryl Zuckerman and Dr. Mikhail Y. Berezin
Hot or cold? The review highlights the general mechanisms and principles behind temperature measurements using nanothermometers within a physiologically relevant temperature range (20–80 °C) in cells and in vivo.
Differential Many-Body Cooperativity in Electronic Spectra of Oligonuclear Transition-Metal Complexes
Jiří Chmela, Dr. Michael E. Harding, Dr. Dimitri Matioszek, Dr. Christopher E. Anson, Prof. Dr. Frank Breher and Prof. Dr. Wim Klopper
Cooperativity in twos and threes: A new concept is applied to the analysis of UV/Vis spectra of homotrinuclear transition-metal complexes by means of a many-body expansion of the change in the spectrum induced by replacing each of the three transition-metal ions in the complex by another transition-metal ion to yield a new homotrinuclear transition-metal complex.
Cancer Cell Imaging Using in Situ Generated Gold Nanoclusters
Shyamtanu Chattoraj, Md. Asif Amin, Saswat Mohapatra, Dr. Surajit Ghosh and Prof. Dr. Kankan Bhattacharyya
Bio-imaging: The authors demonstrate the specific generation of fluorescent Au nanoclusters in cancer cells, which can be used as an excellent probe for imaging different cell organelles.
