Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP) are a class of proteins that lack a three-dimensional structure and their prevalence and diverse functions in the cell have only been discovered relatively recently. The intermediate chain (IC) subunit of the microtubule motor protein complex dynein contains an N-terminal disordered region, N-IC, which is central...
There are two distinct methods which are used to study
the volume changes which take place when a protein is placed
in a solution. The first and most common method measures the
volume changes of the solid alone and is commonly known as swelling. The second measures the total volume...

It has been reported that cyanide inactivates the succinate dehydrogenase activity of HMP toward cytochrome c, oxygen, methylene blue and DCIP. In the present study, it was found that cyanide
also solubilizes the SDH from HMP, this is reflected by the extent
of solubilization of acid nonextractable flavin in the...
Plant tissues contain a wide variety of phenolic compounds,
frequently in high concentration. Both non-covalent association of
intact and oxidized phenols and covalent linkage of oxidized phenols
to protein occur. Such interactions can have important biochemical
and nutritional significance.
A model system approach was used to identify and quantitate
This is a fundamental study of the mechanism of protein particle
removal during flow through sandy soil. Mathematical models for
diffusion-adsorption and diffusion-convection-adsorption processes
were developed and compared with experimental data. An attempt was
made to calculate the distance over which the adsorption forces act.
The differential equation for the...
The ability of ovine endometrium incubated in vitro with
estradiol -17(3 to synthesize a specific induced protein (IP) was
studied. Endometrium from cycling, pregnant and ovariectomized
ewes was used.
Twelve ewes were allotted in equal numbers to be sacrificed on
days 0 (estrus), 3, 6, or 10 of the estrous...
The purpose of this study was to extract proteins from lentils for
use in bread making to improve nutritional quality of bread. Three
solvents, distilled water, 0.7 M NaCl and 0.05 M NaOH solutions, were
used for extraction. Extractions were done at an alkaline pH near 10
for 30 min....
This study was designed to determine whether
dietary protein is a nutritional factor influencing the
bioavailability of dietary fluoride. To accomplish
this, a factorial experiment was conducted with
weanling rats fed a purified diet to determine the
influence of dietary protein type (casein or
lactalbumin) and level (12% or 36%)...
