  • Complex polymorphisms in an ~330 kDa protein are linked to chlorquine-resistant P. falciparum in Southeast Asia and Africa.

    Parasite Rex

  • Complex polymorphisms in an approximately 330 kDa protein are linked to chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum in Southeast Asia and Africa.

    The Edge of Evolution

  • They drew our attention to a protein called A24 (uH2A) which was discovered earlier by Ira Goldknopf and Harris Busch, and that was a covalent conjugate between two proteins - a small, ~8. 5 kDa protein called ubiquitin, and histone 2A (H2A).

  • He did so as all our attempts to resolve the activity - despite the large difference in the molecular mass between the active protein (~10 kDa) and hemoglobin, the other major protein in Fraction I (65 kDa) - failed: hemoglobin, that is so abundant, "contaminated" the entire resolution span of each column in every single resolution method we used.

  • We soon recognized that we actually had isolated two membrane proteins - the 32 kDa Rh and

  • I subsequently learned that other groups had immediately focused all their attention on the 28 kDa protein after hearing about our unpublished observations.

    Peter Agre - Autobiography

  • Upon returning to our lab, I felt that we should explore the 28 kDa protein further.

    Peter Agre - Autobiography

  • My research expanded and we focused our major attention on Rh but continued to dabble with the 28 kDa protein.

    Peter Agre - Autobiography

  • We all agreed that it was perfect, and our 28 kDa protein became officially designated as AQP1.
