Transport Assays in Aspergillus nidulans
Authors:  Emilia Krypotou and George Diallinas, date: 11/20/2013, view: 3642, Q&A: 0
Transport assays allow the direct kinetic analysis of a specific transporter by measuring apparent Km and Vmax values, and permit the characterization of substrate specificity profiles through competition ...

Measuring Nucleosome Assembly Activity in vitro with the Nucleosome Assembly and Quantification (NAQ) Assay
Authors:  Francesca Mattiroli, Yajie Gu and Karolin Luger, date: 02/05/2018, view: 291, Q&A: 0
Nucleosomes organize the eukaryotic genome into chromatin. In cells, nucleosome assembly relies on the activity of histone chaperones, proteins with high binding affinity to histones. At least a subset of histone chaperones promotes histone ...

Highly Accurate Real-time Measurement of Rapid Hydrogen-peroxide Dynamics in Fungi
Authors:  Michael Mentges and Jörg Bormann, date: 12/20/2016, view: 2628, Q&A: 0
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are unavoidable by-products of aerobic metabolism. Despite beneficial aspects as a signaling molecule, ROS are principally recognized as harmful agents that act on nucleic acids, proteins and lipids. Reactive oxygen ...
