To detect interactions of different proline-rich ligands with profilins, the authors developed a simple analytical antibody-based screening method. Profilin I or profilin IIa was coated in microplates, and ligand binding was monitored via antibody detection. Using purified components, the authors...
A novel assay for monitoring the activity of the bacterial enzyme UDP- N -acetylmuramyl-L-alanine:D-glutamate ligase (MurD ligase) is presented. MurD, which belongs to an enzyme family of Mur ligases, is essential for the synthesis of bacterial peptidoglycan and therefore represents an attractive...
