Journal Highlight: NMR structures of fusion peptide from influenza hemagglutinin H3 subtype and its mutants

Date: Mar 31, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The structures of the influenza hemagglutinin H3-HAfp23 peptide and its mutants, G1S and G1V, in dodecylphosphatidyl choline micelles were studied by heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy to study the role of its amino acids in the fusion process.

Targeting PP1: NMR takes aim

Date: Mar 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

The enzyme PP1 plays a vital role in countless biochemical processes in the body and is the pivot around which many diseases turn. It is so ubiquitous that until now drug development has tended to avoid it because the side effects and complications that arise when it is targeted are too risky. Now, researchers at Brown University, have used NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography to help them focus on how PP1 interacts with other proteins to understand specific behaviour that might nevertheless be...

Journal Highlight: 1H and 13C NMR-based sugar profiling with chemometric analysis and antioxidant activity of herbhoneys and honeys

Date: Mar 3, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy coupled with chemometric analysis (PCA and PLS-DA) and antioxidant assays were used to study 25 samples of Polish herbhoneys and honeys.

Spaghetti virus: NMR clues to cancer-causing herpes

Date: Mar 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

NMR spectroscopy research carried out at Manchester University has revealed that herpes virus proteins are more "spaghetti-like" than previously thought. The discovery hints at possible treatments for a form of the disease that causes the cancer known as Kaposi’s sarcoma.

HIV target: NMR revelations

Date: Feb 17, 2014

Author:

NMR spectroscopy has been used to home in on a vulnerable point in the HIV viral machinery, the envelope protein, gp41 membrane proximal external region. The research steals a march on other studies for which the protein is inaccessible, potentially leading the way to a vaccine or new targets for antiviral drugs against the disease.

Journal Highlight: Why is inline NMR rarely used as industrial sensor? Challenges and opportunities

Date: Feb 3, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A short background of NMR spectroscopy fundamentals and instrumentation is presented along with its potential applications and limitations for real-time analysis in the manufacturing sector.

Pseud's corner: NMR assesses pseudilins

Date: Feb 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Understanding more clearly a major enzymatic biosynthetic route to isoprenoid compounds - the non-mevalonate pathway - could offer targets to researchers for new types of herbicides for crop protection as well as agents against infectious disease, including malaria. NMR assays and other techniques have now been used to assist in the assessment of the pseudilins.

Alzheimer's disease: NMR pinpoints genetic clue

Date: Jan 15, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Researchers have turned to solution NMR spectroscopy to help them characterise the structure and dynamics of the transmembrane portion of the protein amyloid precursor protein, APP, of which there are two genetic variants linked to familial, or hereditary Alzheimer's disease.

Journal Highlight: Investigation of the chemomarkers correlated with flower colour in different organs of Catharanthus roseus using NMR-based metabolomics

Date: Jan 6, 2014

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The metabolic profile of leaves, stems, roots and flowers of Catharanthus roseus and the possible correlation with four flower colours (orange, pink, purple and red) was studied by 1H-NMR spectroscopy.

Heart of the matter: NMR cardiac prognosis

Date: Jan 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

Researchers in the US have turned to magnetic resonance spectroscopy to find a novel approach to predicting whether the health of a patient that has suffered heart failure is likely to worsen or improve.
