Single molecule study of cellulase hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose preprint ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cellobiohydrolase-I (CBH I), a processive exoglucanase secreted by Trichoderma reesei, is one of the key enzyme components in a commercial cellulase mixture currently used for processing biomass to biofuels. CBH I contains a family 7 glycoside hydrolase catalytic module, a family 1 carbohydrate-binding module (CBM), and a highly-glycosylated linker peptide. It has been proposed that the CBH I cellulase initiates the hydrolysis from the reducing end of one cellulose chain and successively cleaves alternate ß-1,4-glycosidic bonds to release cellobiose as its principal end product. The role each module of CBH I plays in the processive hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose has yet to be convincingly elucidated. In this report, we use a single-molecule approach that combines optical (total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy or TIRF-M) and non-optical (atomic force microscopy or AFM) imaging techniques to analyze the molecular motion of CBM tagged with green fluorescence protein (GFP) and to investigate the surface structure of crystalline cellulose and changes made in the structure by CBM and CBH I. Preliminary results reveal a confined nanometer-scale movement of the TrCBM1-GFP bound to cellulose, decreases in cellulose crystal size, and increases in surface roughness during CBH I hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose

Optical design of microscopes by George Seward( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Knowledge of microscope design is rapidly becoming more important. Microscopes are used in critical applications such as drug development, clinical tests, and genomics. Considerable expertise is required for the evaluation, design, and manufacture of these instruments. Several subsystems must be integrated: the source, the illumination optics, the specimen, the objective lens, the tube optics, and the sensor. The large numerical aperture of a microscope is essential for small spot size and high brightness; however, the large numerical aperture also presents difficult issues in optical design and fabrication. This book provides a foundation for developing design expertise through education, practice, and exploration. It is suitable for lens designers, optical engineers, and students with a basic knowledge of microscope structure
