Our study has shown the dotMetric protein assay to be highly reproducible and simple to perform.
Separate research suggests that a worm called the root-knot nematode sneaks past plants' defenses by disguising itself as a friend and that some bacteria inject one of a group of proteins that co-opt a cell's actions.
Protein embodies any number of what are called "amino acids." The body needs 21 of these acids to build tissue, though not all proteins contain the entire series.
Other features common to paramyxovirus fusion proteins, type I transmembrane glycoproteins, are a signal sequence, a transmembrane domain, and 2-heptad repeats.
Earlier reports cautioned that excess protein might burden the kidneys.[6] But if you look at the grams of protein eaten on an Atkins-type diet, depending on the serving sizes you choose, you may eat no more protein than you would on some higher-carb diets.
This procedure -- introducing a mutation at a specific site in a gene to alter the structure and shape of a protein -- was revolutionary in the early 1980s, although it is now a standard part of rational drug design.
The higher the protein content, however, the lower the concentration of sulfur-based amino acids in the beans, the researchers report in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
The results suggest that certain protein structures contribute to plants' allergenicity, says coauthor Clare Mills, head of the allergy research team at IFR.
We have developed an antigen-capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based on monoclonal antibodies against the nucleocapsid (N) protein of SARS-CoV (7), a predominant antigen produced in the infected cell-culture filtrate.
We believe that protein signaling pathway information will accelerate the discovery of new drug targets for a variety of signal transduction related diseases and facilitate more efficient and targeted pharmaceutical and biotechnology research and development," said Michael D.
