Analysis of the solution conformations of T4 lysozyme by paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy.
Tianjin, China. In Phys Chem Chem Phys, Jan 2016
To probe the conformational space of T4-L, we generated a site-specific lanthanide binding site by attaching 4-mercaptomethyl dipicolinic acid via a disulfide bond to Cys44 in the triple-mutant C54T/C97A/S44C of T4-L and measured pseudocontact shifts (PCS) and magnetically induced residual dipolar couplings (RDC).
Metabolites and metals in Metazoa--what role do phytochelatins play in animals?
London, United Kingdom. In Metallomics, 2014
It has been known for a while now that some invertebrates also possess functional phytochelatin synthase (PCS) enzymes, and that at least one species, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, produces phytochelatins to help detoxify cadmium, and probably also other metal and metalloid ions including arsenic, zinc, selenium, silver, and copper.
