51. A mechanistically relevant cytotoxicity assay based on the detection of cellular GFP
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 8/1/2009
Authors: Michael W Halter, Jamie L Almeida, Alessandro Tona, Kenneth D Cole, Anne L Plant, John T Elliott
Abstract: Cell-based assays for measuring ribosome inhibition by proteins such as the plant toxin ricin are important for characterizing decontamination strategies and developing detection technologies for field use. We report here an assay for ricin that prov ...

52. Combinatorial Screening of Hydrogel Properties for 3-D Cell Culture: Effect of Stiffness on Encapsulated Osteoblasts
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 7/15/2009
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr, Kaushik Chatterjee, Sheng Lin-Gibson, William E Wallace III, Marian F Young
Abstract: A combinatorial method to rapidly screen cell-material interactions in three-dimensional (3-D) culture format was developed for accelerating tissue engineering research. Hydrogels of poly(ethylene glycol) dimethacrylate (PEGDM) with gradients in comp ...

54. Glutathione Depletion by Buthionine Sulfoximine Induces Oxidative Damage to DNA in Organs of Rabbits in vivo
Report Number: 901398
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 6/9/2009
Authors: Goksel Gokce, Gonen Ozsarlak, Gulgun Oktay, Guldal Kirkali, Pawel Jaruga, M Miral Dizdar, Zeliha Kerry
Abstract: Glutathione (GSH) exists in mammalian tissues in vivo at high concentrations and plays an important protective role against oxidatively induced damage to biological molecules including DNA. We investigated oxidatively induced damage to DNA by GSH dep ...

55. Oligo(ethylene oxide) Self-Assembled Monolayers, with Self-limiting Packing Densities for the Inhibition of Nonspecific Protein Adsorption
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 5/5/2009
Authors: David J Vanderah, Ryan Vierling, Marlon L Walker
Abstract: We have created a molecule that forms self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Au possessing the characteristics for inhibition of nonspecific protein adsorption, i.e., uniformly distributed, loosely-packed, conformationally mobile, hydrated ethylene oxid ...

56. Plant and fungal Fpg homologs are formamidopyrimidine DNA glycosylases but not 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylases
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Scott D Kathe, Ramiro Barrantes-Reynolds, Pawel Jaruga, Michael Newton, Cynthia Burrows, Viswanath Bandaru, M Miral Dizdar, Jeffrey Bond, Susan Wallace
Abstract: Formamidopyrimidine DNA glycosylase (Fpg) and endonuclease VIII (Nei) share an overall common three dimensional structure and primary amino acid sequence in conserved structural motifs but have different substrate specificities, with bacterial Fpg pr ...

57. Comparison of Fluorometric and Spectrophotometric DNA Quantification for Real-time Quantitative PCR of Degraded DNA
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 4/1/2009
Authors: Luke A. Shokere, Marcia J Holden, G. Ronald Jenkins
Abstract: Isogenic NK603 DNA was degraded by sonication or heat and quantified using A260 and a fluorescent dye method. qPCR experiments were conducted by amplifying an SSIIb-3 endogenous control and an NK603 transgene in untreated, sonicated, and heat-treate ...

58. Profound asymmetry in the structure of the cAMP-free cAMP receptor protein (CRP) from Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 3/27/2009
Authors: David Travis Gallagher, N N Smith, Soo-Kyung Kim, Howard Robinson, Prasad T Reddy
Abstract: he bacterial cyclic AMP receptor protein (CRP) has been studied extensively as a model allosterically controlled transcription factor, despite the lack of a crystal structure of its inactive (unliganded) form. We report the crystal structure at 2.0 ...

59. Cell volume distributions reveal cell growth rates and division times
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 3/7/2009
Authors: Michael W Halter, John T Elliott, Joseph Bunton Hubbard, Alessandro Tona, Anne L Plant
Abstract: A population of cells in culture displays a range of phenotypic responses, even when those cells are derived from a single cell and are exposed to a homogeneous environment. Phenotypic variability can have a number of sources, including the variable ...

60. Surface plasmon resonance imaging of cells and surface-associated fibronectin
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 2/26/2009
Authors: Alexander W Peterson, Michael W Halter, Alessandro Tona, Kiran Bhadriraju, Anne L Plant
Abstract: Background A critical challenge in cell biology is quantifying the interactions of cells with their extracellular matrix (ECM) environment and the active remodeling by cells of their ECM. Fluorescence microscopy is a commonly employed technique for ...
