Cosolubilization of Coumarin30 and Warfarin in Cationic, Anionic, and Nonionic Micelles: A Micelle–Water Interfacial Charge Dependent FRET
Solubilization of structurally varied coumarins, viz., Warfarin (WF; a 4-hydroxy coumarin) and Coumarin30 (C30, a 7-amino coumarin) individually and in mixed states (cosolubilization) within the aqueous surfactant self-assemblies of varying architectures has been explored, exploiting steady-state, time-resolved fluorimetric, and spectrophotometric techniques. Cosolubilization studies within micelles, which have rarely been done in the literature, were specifically undertaken with the aim of understanding the effect of micelles on their photophysical phenomena when simultaneously present within these nanocarriers and assess their prospective use as an efficient FRET pair. WF solubilizes within CTAB micelles, whereas little or no solubilization is observed in Brij30 and SDS micelles. On the other hand, C30 solubilizes deep into the palisade layer of CTAB micelles, between negatively charged head groups in SDS micelles and between OE groups in Brij30 micelles. C30 and WF maintain their solubilization sites d...
We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
