"Serial Time-resolved crystallography of photosystem II using a femtosecond X-ray laser" ; Christopher Kupitz et al.; Nature, 2014; DOI: 10.1038/nature13453
...According to news reporting from Hamburg, Germany , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "The phase transfer of fluorescent CdSe based quantum dots (QDs) while retaining their properties and offering some advantages concerning the stability and functionalization characteristics is an important and intensively investigated field of research. Here we report how to tune and control the properties of CdSe/CdS/ZnS core-shell-shell QDs in water, using poly(isoprene-block-ethylene oxide) (PI-b-PEO) as a versatile system of amphiphilic diblock copolymers for the micellular encapsulation of nanoparticles (NPs)."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Hamburg , "In recent years, 'green' solvents, such as ionic liquids and, more recently, deep eutectic liquids, have been proposed as suitable alternatives for biomass dissolution by homogenous catalysis. In this manuscript, a directed evolution campaign of an ionic liquid tolerant beta-1,4-endoglucanase (CelA2) was performed in order to increase its performance in the presence of choline chloride/glycerol (ChCl:Gly) or 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([BMIM]Cl), as a first step to identify residues which govern ionic strength resistance and obtaining insights for employing cellulases on the long run in homogenous catalysis of lignocellulose degradation. After mutant library screening, variant M4 (His288Phe, Ser300Arg) was identified, showing a dramatically reduced activity in potassium phosphate buffer and an increased activity in the presence of ChCl:Gly or [BMIM]Cl. Further characterization showed that the CelA2 variant M4 is activated in the presence of these solvents, representing a first report of an engineered enzyme with an ionic strength activity switch. Structural analysis revealed that Arg300 could be a key residue for the ionic strength activation through a salt bridge with the neighboring Asp287. Experimental and computational results suggest that the salt bridge Asp287-Arg300 generates a nearly inactive CelA2 variant and activity is regained when ChCl:Gly or [BMIM]Cl are supplemented (similar to 5-fold increase from 0.64 to 3.37 mu M 4-MU/h with the addition ChCl:Gly and similar to 23-fold increase from 3.84 to 89.21 mu M 4-pNP/h with the addition of [BMIM]Cl)."
...with our broad pipeline of advanced Type 2 kinase inhibitors," said Michael D Taylor , PhD, Deciphera's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Oliver's experience and vision will strengthen our clinical development efforts and support the future progress of our product pipeline of novel kinase inhibitors with a unique ability to block key cancer signaling mechanisms."
