The RRM2 mutant C198S was expressed and purified

Posted: 22.02.2016

Second mutant RRM2 construct was expressed and purified. The NMR studies of role of second cysteine in RRM2 will be performed.


The practical course “Cloning strategies”

Posted: 01.12.2015


Sevastyan Rabdano and Yulia Pivovarova attended two-week course on cloning in Moscow State University organized by Anna Golovina in Olga Dontsova’s lab (A.N. Belozersky Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology MSU). They were trained to perform cloning of DNA constructs to expression vectors including such operations like DNA electrophoresis, DNA extraction, PCR, restriction analysis.

Sevastyan presented the oral talk about projects in Biomolecular NMR laboratory at weekly group seminar.

15N labeled H4-tail HSQC

Posted: 12.10.2015


Finally the H4-tail has been successful expressed and now the first HSQC spectrum of this peptide has been recorded. Now the measurements of the dynamics can start!


The RRM2 mutant C244S was expressed and purified

Posted: 01.09.2015

This RRM2 mutant lacks cysteine that is presumably oxidized when wild-type RRM2 is treated by hydrogen peroxide. Experiment on this protein will help to understand the role of C244.
