Mass Spectral Library Methods for Analysis of Site-Specific N-Glycosylation: Application to Human Milk Proteins

September 16, 2022
Concepcion Remoroza, Meghan Burke Harris, Xiaoyu (Sara) Yang, Sergey Sheetlin, Yuri Mirokhin, Sanford Markey, Dmitrii V. Tchekhovskoi, Stephen E. Stein
We present a mass-spectral library-based method for analyzing site-specific N-linked protein glycosylation. Its operation and utility are illustrated by applying it to both newly measured and available proteomics data of human milk glycoproteins. It

Effect of network connectivity on behavior of synthetic Broborg Hillfort glasses

September 2, 2022
Jose Marcial, Maria Cicconi, Carolyn Pearce, Jaroslav Klouzek, James Neeway, Richard Pokorny, Miroslava Vernerova, John McCloy, Emily Nienhuis, Rolf Sjoblom, Jamie Weaver, Russell Hand, Pavel Hrma, Albert Kruger
There is wide industrial interest in developing robust models of long-term (>100years) glass durability. Archeological glass analogs, glasses of similar composition, and alteration conditions to those being tested for durability can be used to evaluate and

ALD deposited amorphous alumina coatings can slow glass alteration

August 31, 2022
Miriam Hiebert, Jamie Weaver, Thomas Lam, Nicole Little, Ethan Hyde, Edward Vicenzi, Ray A. Phaneuf
Atomic layer deposited (ALD) amorphous aluminum oxide and titanium oxide coatings have been investigated for use in reducing the rate of silicate glass alteration. Mass spectrometric analysis of leachate from elevated temperature aqueous immersion

Connecting entropy scaling and density scaling

August 17, 2022
Ian Bell, Robin Fingerhut, Jadran Vrabec, Lorenzo Costigliola
It is shown that the residual entropy (entropy minus that of the ideal gas at the same temperature and density) is mostly synonymous with the independent variable of density scaling, identifying a direct link between these two approaches. The residual

Relative effects of polymer composition and sample preparation on glass dynamics

August 17, 2022
Christopher Soles, Amanda L. Forster, Katherine Evans, Madhusudan (Madhu) Tyagi, Robert M. Elder, Timothy Sirk, Joseph Dennis, Kanae Ito, Osama Yamamuro, Hiroshi Akiba
Modern design of common adhesives, composites and polymeric parts makes use of polymer glasses that are stiff enough to maintain their shape under a high stress while still maintaining a ductile behavior after the yield point. Typically, material

Effect of Tribologically-Induced Changes in Surface Termination of Silicon-Containing Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings on the Resistance to Biomolecule Adsorption

August 1, 2022
Cherno Jaye, Daniel A. Fischer, Zixuan Li, Jennings Z. Ye, Jieming Yan, Nicolas Molina, Hsu-Ming Lien, Robert Chrostowksi, Jianliang Lin, Mangolini Mangolini
Silicon-containing diamond-like carbon (DLC) is a class of thin-film materials with excellent mechanical properties, high thermal stability, and good tribological performance over a wide range of environmental conditions. While non-alloyed/non-doped DLCs

Levels and profiles of perfluorinated alkyl acids in liver tissues of birds with different habitat types and trophic levels from an urbanized coastal region of South Korea

August 1, 2022
Sang Hee Hong, Jessica L. Reiner, Mi Jang, Stacy Schuur, Gi Myung Han, John Kucklick, Won Joon Shim
Contamination status and characteristics of perfluorinated alkyl acids (PFAAs) including perfluorinated carboxylic acids (PFCAs) and perfluorinated sulfonic acids (PFSAs) was examined using liver tissue of birds - blacktailed gulls (Larus crassirostris)

Thermal Conductivity of Binary Mixtures of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane(R-134a), 2,3,3,3-Tetrafluoropropene (R-1234yf), and trans-1,3,3,3-Tetrafluoropropene (R-1234ze(E)) Refrigerants

July 28, 2022
Aaron Rowane, Ian Bell, Marcia L. Huber, Richard A. Perkins
A total of 2160 thermal conductivity data points, measured using a transient hot-wire instrument, are reported for binary mixtures of R-134a, R-1234yf, and R-1234ze(E) refrigerants from 200 to 340 K to pressures of 12 MPa for mixtures containing R-1234yf

Selective C-terminal Conjugation of Trypsin-Digested Peptides for Proteomic Measurements

July 20, 2022
Tian Xie, Alexandria Brady, Cecilia Velarde, David Vaccarello, Nicholas Callahan, John Marino, Sara Orski
Bottom-up proteomic experiments often require selective conjugation or labeling of the N- and/or C-termini of peptides either through bottom up approaches or selective post-cleavage functionalization of specific residues after proteolytic digestion . For

The Expanding Role of National Metrology Institutes in the Quantum Era

July 12, 2022
Alexander Tzalenchuk, Nicolas Spethmann, Tim Prior, Jay H. Hendricks, Yijie Pan, Vladimir Bubanja, Guilherme Temporao, Dai-Hyuk Yu, Damir Ilic, Barbara L. Goldstein
Now that all base units are defined in terms of fundamental constants and can thus — at least in principle — be realized anytime and anywhere, rather than through a measurement chain leading back to unique physical artefacts, who holds the traceability

New Thermodynamic Mixture Models for HFO-containing Blends

July 11, 2022
Ian Bell
With the modern use of fluorinated olefins as refrigerants, there is a pressing need for reference thermodynamic models to design components and cycles. Recent activities at NIST are summarized, including a survey of existing literature data and results

Kavita Jeerage, Jennifer Berry, Jacolin Murray, Cassie Goodman, Paulina Piotrowski, Christina Jones, Christina Cecelski, Jennifer Carney, Katrice Lippa, Tara Lovestead
Exhaled breath is a non-invasive, information-rich matrix with the potential to diagnose or monitor disease, including infectious disease. Despite significant effort dedicated to biomarker identification in case control studies, very few breath tests are

Unraveling the Stable Cathode Electrolyte Interface in all Solid-State Thin-Film Battery Operating at 5 V
