Dynamics properties of membrane proteins in native cell membranes revealed by solid-state NMR spectroscopy.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Biochimica et biophysica acta. Biomembranes [Biochim Biophys Acta Biomembr] 2022 Feb 01; Vol. 1864 (1), pp. 183791. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Oct 06.


Abstract: Cell membranes provide an environment that is essential to the functions of membrane proteins. Cell membranes are mainly composed of proteins and highly diverse phospholipids. The influence of diverse lipid compositions of native cell membranes on the ...

The Mammalian Membrane Microenvironment Regulates the Sequential Attachment of Bacteria to Host Cells.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): MBio [mBio] 2021 Aug 31; Vol. 12 (4), pp. e0139221. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Aug 03.

Abstract: Pathogen attachment to host tissue is critical in the progress of many infections. Bacteria use adhesion in vivo to stabilize colonization and subsequently regulate the deployment of contact-dependent virulence traits. To specifically target host cells...

Glycine inhibits NINJ1 membrane clustering to suppress plasma membrane rupture in cell death.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): eLife. 12/15/2022, p1-24. 24p.

Abstract: First recognized more than 30 years ago, glycine protects cells against rupture from diverse types of injury. This robust and widely observed effect has been speculated to target a late downstream process common to multiple modes of tissue injury. The ...

Peptide–Polymer Conjugates: A Promising Therapeutic Solution for Drug-Resistant Bacteria.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Polymer Science. 12/2/2022, p1-18. 18p.

Abstract: By 2050, it is estimated that 10 million people will die of drug-resistant bacterial infection caused by antibiotic abuse. Antimicrobial peptide (AMP) is widely used to prevent such circumstances, for the positively charged AMPs can kill drug-resistant...

Mechanobiology of the cell surface: Probing its remodeling dynamics using membrane tether pulling assays with optical tweezers.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Biocell. 2022, Vol. 46 Issue 9, p2009-2013. 5p.

Abstract: Mammalian cell surfaces consist of the plasma membrane supported by an underneath cortical cytoskeleton. Together, these structures can control not only the shape of cells but also a series of cellular functions ranging from migration and division to e...

Generating Heterokaryotic Cells via Bacterial Cell-Cell Fusion.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Microbiology spectrum [Microbiol Spectr] 2022 Aug 31; Vol. 10 (4), pp. e0169322. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Jul 14.

Abstract: Fusion of cells is an important and common biological process that leads to the mixing of cellular contents and the formation of multinuclear cells. Cell fusion occurs when distinct membranes are brought into proximity of one another and merge to becom...

Interaction of graphene oxide with artificial cell membranes: Role of anionic phospholipid and cholesterol in nanoparticle attachment and membrane disruption.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Colloids and surfaces. B, Biointerfaces [Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces] 2021 Jun; Vol. 202, pp. 111685. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Mar 09.


Abstract: A mechanistic understanding of the interaction of graphene oxide (GO) with cell membranes is critical for predicting the biological effects of GO following accidental exposure and biomedical applications. We herein used a quartz crystal microbalance wi...

Electrochemiluminescence Loss in Photobleaching.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Angewandte Chemie (International ed. in English) [Angew Chem Int Ed Engl] 2021 Mar 29; Vol. 60 (14), pp. 7686-7690. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Feb 25.

Abstract: The effects of photobleaching on electrochemiluminescence (ECL) was investigated for the first time. The plasma membrane of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells was labeled with a [Ru(bpy) 3 ] 2+ derivative. Selected regions of the fixed cells were photob...

High-resolution secretory timeline from vesicle formation at the Golgi to fusion at the plasma membrane in S. cerevisiae.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): eLife. 11/17/2022, p1-28. 28p.

Abstract: Most of the components in the yeast secretory pathway have been studied, yet a high-resolution temporal timeline of their participation is lacking. Here, we define the order of acquisition, lifetime, and release of critical components involved in late ...

Simulating realistic membrane shapes.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Current opinion in cell biology [Curr Opin Cell Biol] 2021 Aug; Vol. 71, pp. 103-111. Date of Electronic Publication: 2021 Mar 12.

Abstract: Biological membranes exhibit diversity in their shapes and complexity in chemical compositions that are linked to many cellular functions. These two central features of biomembranes have been the subject of numerous simulation studies, using a diverse ...
