Understanding How Proteins Interact at the University of Texas at Dallas | Behind the Science, S3 Ep 11

Video   Jul 01, 2019

 

Proteins carry out numerous biological functions in the human body, such as growth, development, and cell signaling. Many proteins interact, forming a system that carries out complex functions. In #BehindtheScience, Jen meets Prithwijit Sarkar, Ph.D, a student in biological sciences at the D'Arcy Group in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Texas at Dallas. He shows her how he uses size-exclusion chromatography with multi-angle light scattering detection (SEC-MALS) to measure protein-protein interactions. He's looking for data such as where proteins bind, how many bind, how strongly they interact, and the effect of their interactions.

Dr. Sarkar uses Waters SEC columns and standards for his SEC-MALS separations and Wyatt Technologies for MALS detection.

How Do Citrus Fruits Create Such a Strong Smell?

Video

Citrus fruits contain small pockets of liquid which burst upon contact releasing a jet of strong smelling oil into the air. The strong smell is designed to attract animals to the site to help to spread the seeds of the fruit as far as possible. Andrew Dickerson at the University of Central Florida has recorded the squirting motion using high speed cameras to try to understand the exact process of these 'micro-jets' of citrus oil.
