Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2015
With the development of the XLA/XLI analytical ultracentrifuges and their exquisitely sensitive optics that can accurately detect absorbance signals in the range of 0.005 A to 1.5 A. and differences in Rayleigh interference patterns to at least 5 ug/ml of protein solute in solution, new methods for sedimentation data analysis have been developed making it possible to quantitatively determine the stoichiometry of reactions and their energies of interaction as well as solute masses.
Beckman Coulter is sponsoring a new educational webinar, “Quantitative determination of reaction stoichiometry, interaction energies, and solute masses using analytical ultracentrifugation,” with John Burgner, PhD, which will detail some of the experimental approaches that Dr. John Burgner and others have used to characterize these processes over the past few years.
Dr. John Burgner has many years of experience working with the analytical ultracentrifuge starting back in 1963. In retirement he now works as an adjunct faculty member in the Biophysics department at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical School mostly working on systems involving the interactions of viral proteins with viral proteins, mammalian proteins, and short polymers of DNA and RNA. Dr. Burgner taught in Peter Schuck’s course on sedimentation Sedfit at NIH and at the University College London for several years. He also co-teaches the Proteome Lab XL-A/XL-I Customer Training Course, which now includes basic training on data analysis with SEDFIT.
The complementary webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on May 28, 2015, at 8:00 am Pacific/11:00 am Eastern Time.
