Join us for an afternoon to discuss topics on membrane protein production and modification. Topics will include cellular and cell-free production of membrane proteins, reconstitution, incorporation of unnatural amino acids, single antigen binder technologies, and chemistry of protein modification and nitroxide spin labels.
2:00 Brandy Verhalen, Vanderbilt University, and Yelena Peskova, University of Virginia: Expression in eukaryotic cells and reconstitution into nanodiscs.
2:20 Shohei Koide, University of Chicago: Use of designed binding proteins for structural and functional studies
2:40 Ray Hulse, University of Chicago: Strategies for NMR sample preparation
3:00 Edith Buchinger, Goethe University: Cell-free protein synthesis for NMR
3:40 Stephen Pless, University of Iowa: Use of nonsense suppressors in ooctyes
4:00 Lilia Leisle, University of Iowa: Selection of tRNA synthetases for in vivo incorporation of unnatural amino acid
4:20 Andrzej Rajca, University of Nebraska: Next generation nitroxide spin labels
5:00 End of workshop
