Preparation and Analysis of Crude Autolytic Enzyme Extracts from Staphylococcus aureus
Authors:  Filipa Vaz and Sérgio R. Filipe, date: 12/20/2015, view: 8520, Q&A: 0
The metabolism of the cell surface during bacterial cell division involves synthesis and degradation of peptidoglycan (PGN), the major component of the bacterial cell wall. Bacteria have to ensure that their surface remains capable of withstanding ...

Examination of the Interaction between a Membrane Active Peptide and Artificial Bilayers by Dual Polarisation Interferometry
Authors:  Jennifer A.E. Payne, Tzong-Hsien Lee, Marilyn A. Anderson and Marie-Isabel Aguilar, date: 01/05/2017, view: 4591, Q&A: 0
Examining the interaction of peptides with lipid bilayers to determine binding kinetics is often performed using surface plasmon resonance (SPR). Here we describe the technique of dual polarisation interferometry (DPI) that provides not only ...

Measurement of Cellular Copper in Rhodobacter capsulatus by Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
Authors:  Petru-Iulian Trasnea, Dorian Marckmann, Marcel Utz and Hans-Georg Koch, date: 10/05/2016, view: 6343, Q&A: 0
Copper is an essential micronutrient and functions as a cofactor in many enzymes such as heme-Cu oxygen reductases, Cu-Zn superoxide dismutases, multi-copper oxidases and tyrosinases. However, due to its chemical reactivity, free copper is highly ...
