7.3.1 Library-based methods for demonstrating an interaction between proteins

As well as the biochemical approaches to studying protein–protein interactions, there is a variety of qualitative methods for screening ‘libraries’ of cloned genes or gene fragments whose protein products might interact with a protein of interest. Such an approach has the advantage that the genes that encode those proteins that bind are available immediately for expression, facilitating subsequent analysis of the protein.

Conclusion

Despite claims made for its potential, wave energy can never make any significant contribution to global energy supplies, although it may find a use in coastal communities. The greatest potential from wave energy exists far from shore, but waves are wind-dependent and so supplies are bound to be irregular.

7.5 Summary of Section 7

  1. Site-directed mutagenesis is an important technique for studying protein function. Using recombinant DNA technology, selected amino acids can be substituted with different residues to alter the structure and function of a protein. One widely used method employs primer extension. SDM studies can help identify residues that are critical for interactions or catalytic activity.

  2. Protein–protein interactions can be studied in a number of different

3.2 Uranium occurrence and ore deposits

In igneous rocks, uranium is more abundant in granites (~3.5 ppm) than in basalts (~1 ppm). The large size of the uranium atom prevents it from easily entering the structures of common rock-forming minerals, so it is an incompatible element that tends to remain in magmas until a late stage of crystallisation, when it enters minor minerals, or even the uranium oxide, uraninite (UO2). In suitable circumstances, following fractional crystallisation of uranium-rich granitic magm

Office 365 Goes to the Movies

Think of how movies would be different if they'd only had Office 365. How can mobsters keep tabs on enemy families? Presence in Lync. How can the beleaguered sheriff keep law and order in the Old West? Shared Outlook calendars. See how in The Office Show Classic Film Festival! They don't make movies like these anymore.
