Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most frequent causes of nosocomial and community-acquired infections, with drug-resistant strains being responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year. S. aureus sortase A inhibitors are designed to interfere with virulence determinants. We

Collision-induced dissociations of protonated (18)O-labeled tetraglycines labeled separately at either the first or the second amide bond established that water loss from the backbone occurs from the N-terminal residue. Density functional theory at B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) predicted that the low-energy [G(4) +

Current influenza vaccines provide hemagglutinin strain-specific protection, but rarely provide cross-protection against divergent strains. It is, therefore, particularly important to develop a universal vaccine against conserved proteins or conserved regions of the virus. In this study, we used N-terminal extracellular

This study was undertaken to explore whether nuclear chromatin constituents can participate in and/or be affected by redox reactions catalyzed by nickel, like those of nickel complexes with small peptides, e.g. tetraglycine (G4) and oxygen. Calf thymus DNA, nucleohistone (NH)
