Quotes

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These data suggest that the allosteric inhibitors of IN are promising antiviral agents and provide new information on their mechanism of action."
She added: "People don't adopt adult cats, especially if they are terminally ill."
...Pepsin digests an antibody below the disulfide linkages in the hinge region to produce a F(ab) "2 fragment of the antibody which is a dimer of the Fab composed of a light chain joined to a VH-CHI by a disulfide bond. The F(ab)" 2 may be reduced under mild conditions to break the disulfide linkage in the hinge region thereby converting the F(ab)'2 dimer to a Fab' monomer
