Precision-Livestock-Farming and Animal Nutrition | Evonik

Digitalization in farming is something that has been going on now for probably over 20 or 30 years It’s really becoming much more focus now on collecting information and allowing advisors and farmers themselves to analyze all of this information and make good science-based decisions on the information that they have Evoniks approach to precision …

Alan Russell: Protein-Polymer Conjugates: Small Tools for Big Problems

Alan Russell: Protein-Polymer Conjugates: Small Tools for Big Problems

So my group works at the interface between chemistry, biology, and materials. We’re really interested in how those three things can combine together to solve problems of global importance in lots of different areas. And what I mean by that interface is, in particular, that we’re interested in how we can grow polymers from the …

Equilibrium Protein Binding (BIO)

Equilibrium Protein Binding (BIO)

Here’s a problem to do some equilibrium calculations on a biological system where in the table we’re given equilibrium constants for a couple proteins at different temperatures, and these are binding to the same DNA site and we want to compare these by calculating the delta H for the reaction of binding and the delta …

Molecular Weight of a Protein from Osmotic Pressure

Molecular Weight of a Protein from Osmotic Pressure

Here we have a container in which we put a solution of protein dissolved in water. This container has a membrane. This membrane allows water to permeate but not the protein and so the green represents the protein solution. And then to get to equilibrium, water is – there’s pure water surrounding this container. Water …

Protein Stability (BIO)

Protein Stability (BIO)

In this example we’re looking at a protein that’s being considered as a potential drug and so some measurements were made of it’s denaturation at 25 degrees C, we found that the protein was 80 percent folded when the urea, the denaturant, had a concentration of 1.5 molar, and it was only 35 percent folded …

Unfolded Protein Equilibrium (BIO)

Unfolded Protein Equilibrium (BIO)

In this example we are given the total protein concentration in solution, it’s 10 micromolar, and the question we ask is what fraction of this protein is unfolded at 25 degree C? where we are given the delta G of unfolding and this value then of course is at 25 degrees C. So what we …
