Reimagining Third Phase Formation as the Miscibility Gap of a Molecular Solution

In analogy to a molecular solution, immediately preceding the liquid-liquid coexistence curve from the single phase region, the metal-ligand complexes percolate. Expand abstract.

Receptor tyrosine kinases regulate signal transduction through a liquid-liquid phase separated state

The inclusion of interacting proteins into liquid-liquid phase-separated (LLPS), membraneless protein droplets maintains functionally relevant proteins at high concentrations in a liquid phase at the required point of action, enhancing equilibrium binding and enzyme activity. Expand abstract.

Extraction on Paper, an Active Learning Technique to Facilitate Student Understanding of Liquid-Liquid Extraction

We envision this activity as a tool to help students understand and apply the chemical principles underlying liquid-liquid extractions outside of and before entering into a laboratory setting. Expand abstract.

Multiphase Complex Coacervate Droplets

Here, we show that the formation of hierarchically organized multiphase droplets with up to three coexisting layers is a generic phenomenon in mixtures of complex coacervates, which serve as models of charge-driven liquid-liquid phase separated systems. Expand abstract.

Granulins modulate liquid-liquid phase separation and aggregation of TDP-43 C-terminal domain

These results constitute the first observation of direct interaction between GRNs and TDP-43 and suggest a mechanism by which the loss of PGRN function could lead to FTLD and ALS. Expand abstract.

#ECS236, Tuesday, 15 October 2019, 08:30 - 09:10, Room 209, Molecular Dynamics Analysis on the Behavior of Water and Alcohol Liquids on a OH-Terminated SiO2 Surface

As an equilibrium state, water as well as methanol, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol (IPA) molecules formed a multiple layered structure on the solid surface; however, the microscopic structures were remarkably different between water and IPA liquids because the IPA molecules in the first adsorption layer strongly adsorbed on the solid...

Computational insights into mechanism of AIM4-mediated inhibition of aggregation of TDP-43 protein implicated in ALS and evidence for in vitro inhibition of liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) of TDP-432C-A315T by AIM4.

We find that AIM4 has a binding site in the C-terminal amyloidogenic core region of amino acids aa: 288-319, which coincides with one of the key residue motifs that could potentially mediate liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) of TDP-43. Expand abstract.

ATP-driven separation of liquid phase condensates in bacteria

Liquid-liquid phase separated (LLPS) states are key to compartmentalise components in the absence of membranes, however it is unclear whether LLPS condensates are actively and specifically organized in the sub-cellular space and by which mechanisms. Expand abstract.

Insight into the Mechanisms Driving the Self-Assembly of Functional Interfaces: Moving from Lipids to Charged Amphiphilic Oligomers

In this work we provide new mechanistic insight into the assembly of an amphiphilic polymer-stabilized oil/aqueous interface, in which the headgroups consist of positively charged methylimidazolium ionic liquids, and the tails are short, monodisperse oligodimethylsiloxanes covalently attached to the headgroups.
