SciX 2017 Sessions and Abstracts:

Monday , October 9

17SPSJ01: Frontiers of Deep- and Far- Ultraviolet Spectroscopy I

Location: Nevada 4
10:50 am
Tip-enhanced Raman microscopy in deep UV
Atsushi Taguchi1, Satoshi Kawata1; 1Osaka University
11:10 am
Monomeric Polyglutamine Structures that Evolve into Fibrils
We elucidated the energy landscape and conformations of PolyQ conformations related to fibrillation. These phenomena are important in the processes leading to Huntington-like diseases.
David Punihaole 2, Sanford Ahser1, Ryan Jakubek1, Riley Workman4, Lauren Marbella3, Patricia Campbell1, Jeffry Madura4; 1University of Pittsburgh, 2University of Minnesota, 3University of Cambridge
11:30 am
Hydrogen sulfide inhibits lysozyme fibrillation: DUV Raman spectroscopic study
DUV Raman spectroscopy is uniquely suitable for probing structure/dynamics of protein aggregates in situ
Igor Lednev1, Tatiana Quiñones-Ruiz1, Manuel Rosario-Alomar1, Juan López-Garriga2; 1University at Albany, SUNY, 2University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez
11:50 am
Sample photodegradation and protection in deep-UV resonance Raman spectroscopy
Molecular photodegradation of a biological sample under deep-UV exposure is suppressed by three approaches.
Yasuaki Kumamoto1; 1Kyoto Pref. Univ. of Medicine
12:10 pm
Deep Ultraviolet Resonance Raman (DUVRR) Spectroscopy of Protein Therapeutics
Rapid method for estimation of higher order structure of proteins
Sergey Arzhantsev1, Chen Qiu1; 1US Food and Drug Administration
