    Anti-lysozyme aptamers are found to preferentially bind to the edge of a tightly packed lysozyme pattern. Such edge-binding is due to the better accessibility and flexibility of the edge lysozyme molecules. Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM) was used to study the aptamer–lysozyme...

    Lysozyme has been shown to be associated with damaged elastic fibers in many tissues and organs. To better characterize this interaction, binding of lysozyme to elastin was studied using solution-based binding assays. Under physiologic conditions, radio-labeled lysozyme bound specifically to...

    Integrins are heterodimeric cell-surface proteins that regulate cell growth, migration and survival. We have shown previously that the epithelial-restricted integrin αvβ6 has another critical function; that is, it binds and activates latent transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)....

    We studied the dynamics of lysozyme solution and the bioprotective effect of trehalose. Thermodynamics and elastic properties related to the thermal denaturation were investigated by Modulated-temperature DSC (MDSC) and Brillouin scattering. By MDSC measurements, it is found that the thermal...

    We selectively introduced monomethoxypolyethylene glycol (mPEG) 5000, 2000, and 550 into Aspll9 in lysozyme. To examine how the mPEGs were present on the surface of the modified lysozyme, the activities, binding abilities to the Fab fragment of anti-lysozyme monoclonal antibody, net charges and...
