4-Amino- and 5-amino-cyclopropane pipecolic acids (CPAs) with cis relative stereochemistry between the carboxylic and amino groups were used as templates to prepare cyclic peptidomimetics containing the RGD sequence as possible integrin binders. The peptidomimetic c(RGD8) built on the 5-amino-CPA displayed...

In situ molecular imaging of protein films adsorbed on a solid surface in water was realized by using a vacuum compatible microfluidic interface and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS). Amino acid fragments from such hydrated protein films are observed...

Current methods to replace damaged upper airway epithelium with exogenous cells are limited. Existing strategies use grafts that lack mucociliary function, leading to infection and the retention of secretions and keratin debris. Strategies that regenerate airway epithelium with mucociliary function...

A previous study had demonstrated that Leptospira enolase is secreted extracellularly by a yet unknown mechanism and reassociates with the bacterial membrane. Surface-anchored leptospiral enolase displays plasminogen binding activity. In this work, we explored the consequences of this interaction and...
