Dr. Petr Leiman Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Sealy Center for Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston Title: "Function, structure, and evolution of phage spike tip proteins" Abstract:The process of protein and DNA translocation across lipid membranes is central to the function of any organism. Contractile injection systems, which include bacteriophage tails, Type VI Secretion System, R-type pyocins, Photorhabdus Virulence Cassette, Serratia antifeeding prophage, and others, translocate their substrates using a rigid tube/contractile sheath…

Biochemistry Seminar – Dr. Amanda Haes : “Nanoparticles and SERS – To Stability and Beyond!”

Dr. Amanda Haes Department of Chemistry University of Iowa Title: "Nanoparticles and SERS – To Stability and Beyond!" Abstract: Anisotropic nanostructures such as gold nanostars exhibit large surface energies relative to spheres or larger structures, thus flocculation and restructuring over time are likely. Restructuring, for instance, most likely occurs at regions of high surface free energy such as those at the nanostar tips because of their small radius of curvatures. As such, the tips on gold nanostars can dissolve more…

Biochemistry Seminar – Dr. Alexander Mankin: “Stopping the ribosome at the finish line: how PrAMPs inhibit termination of translation”

November 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dr. Alexander Mankin Center for Biomolecular Sciences University of Illinois at Chicago Title: "Stopping the ribosome at the finish line: how PrAMPs inhibit termination of translation" Abstract:Apidaecin (Api), produced by honeybees, belongs to the class of proline-rich antimicrobial peptides (PrAMPs), which protect the host from bacterial infection. Api has a unique mode of action and stops bacteria from growing by inhibiting the termination step of translation. Biochemical, genetic and genomic analyses show that the action of Api is distinct from…

Dr. Igor Jouline Department of Microbiology The Ohio State University Title:"How novel sensors arise in bacteria" Abstract: Bacteria possess various receptors that monitor changes in the environment and help adjusting cellular functions accordingly. The number of receptors in bacterial genomes varies significantly and different bacterial species seem to evolve unique receptor proteins. Where do these novel receptors come from? Here, I will consider several basic mechanisms for their birth, using bacterial chemoreceptors as a model. In the first example, I…
