    ABSTRACT: Photoreaction pathways of salicylic acid have been investigated by the low-temperature matrix-isolation infrared spectroscopy with an aid of the density-functional-theory calculations. Only the most stable E form existed in an argon matrix. The second stable R form and the fourth stable H form were produced by UV irradiation (λ > 290 nm). The third stable O form was assumed to return immediately to E form even if it was produced. Ketoketene-water complex was yielded from R form by dissociation of the H and OH parts interacting through intramolecular hydrogen bonding upon prolonged UV irradiation.

    ABSTRACT: OSW-1 is a steroidal saponin, which has emerged as an attractive anticancer agent with highly cancer cell selective activity. A fluorescent analog was prepared from the natural product to analyze its cellular uptake and localization. We found that the fluorescent analog is rapidly internalized into cells and is primarily distributed in endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus.

    ABSTRACT: A Gram-negative, magnetotactic bacterium, Magnetospirillum magneticum AMB-1 produces nano-sized magnetic particles (BacMPs) in the cytoplasm. Although various applications of genetically engineered BacMPs have been demonstrated, such as immunoassay, ligand-receptor interaction or cell separation, by expressing a target protein on BacMPs, it has been difficult to express disulfide-bonded proteins on BacMPs due to lack of disulfide-bond formation in the cytoplasm. Here, we propose a novel dual expression system, called in vitro docking, of a disulfide-bonded protein on BacMPs by directing an immunoglobulin Fc-fused target protein to the periplasm and its docking protein ZZ on BacMPs. By in vitro docking, an scFv-Fc fusion protein was functionally expressed on BacMPs in the dimeric or trimeric form. Our novel disulfide-bonded protein expression system on BacMPs will be useful for efficient screening of potential ligands or drugs, analyzing ligand-receptor interactions or as a magnetic carrier for affinity purification.
