Measuring Nucleosome Assembly Activity in vitro with the Nucleosome Assembly and Quantification (NAQ) Assay
Authors:  Francesca Mattiroli, Yajie Gu and Karolin Luger, date: 02/05/2018, view: 5351, Q&A: 0
Nucleosomes organize the eukaryotic genome into chromatin. In cells, nucleosome assembly relies on the activity of histone chaperones, proteins with high binding affinity to histones. At least a subset of histone chaperones promotes histone ...
FRET-based Stoichiometry Measurements of Protein Complexes in vitro
Authors:  Francesca Mattiroli, Yajie Gu and Karolin Luger, date: 02/05/2018, view: 6490, Q&A: 0
For a complete understanding of biochemical reactions, information on complex stoichiometry is essential. However, measuring stoichiometry is experimentally challenging. Our lab has developed a FRET-based assay to study protein complex stoichiometry ...
