FBAR Syndapin 1 recognizes and stabilizes highly curved tubular membranes in a concentration dependent manner, Article Scientific Reports ; Volume 3 , 2013 ; 20452322 (ISSN) ; Baroji, Y. F ; S. Reihani, S. Nader ; Stamou, D ; Oddershede, L. B ; Bendix, P. M ; Sharif University of Technology
Syndapin 1 FBAR, a member of the Bin-amphiphysin-Rvs (BAR) domain protein family, is known to induce membrane curvature and is an essential component in biological processes like endocytosis and formation and growth of neurites. We quantify the curvature sensing of FBAR on reconstituted porcine brain lipid vesicles and show that it senses membrane curvature at low density whereas it induces and reinforces tube stiffness at higher density. FBAR strongly up-concentrates on the high curvature tubes pulled out of Giant Unilamellar lipid Vesicles (GUVs), this sorting behavior is strongly amplified at low protein densities. Interestingly, FBAR from syndapin 1 has a large affinity for tubular...

With the success of in vitro single-molecule force measurements obtained in recent years, the next step is to perform quantitative force measurements inside a living cell. Optical traps have proven excellent tools for manipulation, also in vivo, where they can be essentially non-invasive under correct wavelength and exposure conditions. It is a pre-requisite for in vivo quantitative force measurements that a precise and reliable force calibration of the tweezers is performed. There are well-established calibration protocols in purely viscous environments; however, as the cellular cytoplasm is viscoelastic, it would be incorrect to use a calibration procedure relying on a viscous environment....
Optimized kalman filter based on second momentum and triple rectangular for cell tracking on sequential microscopic images, Article 22nd Iranian Conference on Biomedical Engineering, 25 November 2015 through 28 November 2015 ; 2015 , Pages 251-256 ; 9781467393515 (ISBN) ; Fatemizadeh, E ; Setarehdan, S.

Cell dynamics and motion stages are very important issues in the biological cell investigation in this novel method, we propose a novel method based on Kalman filter and second momentum for tracking cells on Sequential Microscopic Images. In proposed manner at first, we select a cell and cut covering rectangle. in the next step, we predict rectangle center of the cell in Next frame based on a modeling of velocity-acceleration using Kalman filter. The rectangle with triple covering area of previous cell rectangle and predicting center by Kalman filter is considered as a searching area. So, if all objects in the search areas have second momentum error less than threshold, it is selected as a...
Effects of temperature shifts and oscillations on recombinant protein production expressed in Escherichia coli, Article Bioprocess and Biosystems Engineering ; Volume 36, Issue 11 , 2013 , Pages 1571-1577 ; 16157591 (ISSN) ; Herwig, C ; Sharif University of Technology
Escherichia coli is widely used host for the intracellular expression of many proteins. However, in some cases also secretion of protein from periplasm was observed. Improvement of both intracellular and extracellular production of recombinant protein in E. coli is an attractive goal in order to reduce production cost and increase process efficiency and economics. Since heat shock proteins in E. coli were reported to be helpful for protein refolding and hindering aggregation, in this work different types of single and periodic heat shocks were tested on lab scale to enhance intracellular and extracellular protein production. A single heat shock prior to induction and different oscillatory...
