    Biological interactions are always weak and transient, which present significant challenges for us to dissecting these processes! Therefore, biocompatible covalent bond formations (or so called ligations) may greatly facilitate the studies of these complex biological processes through turning the week and transient interactions to the strong covalent interactions. In this lecture, I will present several examples from our laboratory about how we use novel covalent small molecule probes or biocompatible ligation chemistry to dissect fundamental cellular events such as programmed cell death as well as to explore the complex protein structures and protein-protein interactions. In particular, I will focus on an emerging technology we have been actively developing over the past 5 years, chemical cross-linking of proteins coupled with mass spectrometry analysis (CXMS). I will demonstrate that how novel bioconjugation chemistry enable the new advancement of CXMS and how we apply CXMS as a powerful tool in combination of X-ray crystallography or Cryo-electron microscopy to elucidate the complex protein machinery structures and systematically map protein-protein interactions.

    Light-absorbing organic aerosol commonly termed as Brown carbon (BrC) is a significant contributor to radiative forcing of the Earth’s climate and also is of toxicological concern. Understanding the environmental effects of BrC, its sources, formation, and aging processes requires fundamental knowledge of its chromophores and characterization of their light-absorption properties. This seminar will highlight our recent analytical chemistry developments and applications in the area of molecular-level characterization of BrC that provided first insights into diverse composition and properties of its common chromophores. We present the chemical analysis of chromophores reported in a number of case studies of BrC materials associated with emissions from biomass burning and anthropogenic secondary organic aerosols. The results show that BrC chromophores include organic molecules with various structures, polarities, and volatilities. Understanding their chemical identity requires multi-modal analysis employing complementary separation and ionization approaches in combination with high resolution mass spectrometry. These studies allow assessment of BrC optical properties and relating them to fractional contributions from different classes of chromophores such as aromatic carboxylic acids, nitro-phenols; substituted, heterocyclic and pure polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

    Single-cell genomics allows to understand cellular heterogeneity at an unprecedented resolution. The SMARTer ICELL8 Single-Cell System gives more control in the experimental design, more confidence in the data and unique workflow flexibilities while reducing the experimental costs.
    The ICELL8 multi-nanowell chip can isolate hundreds of cells from multiple samples at once, from the very small, like nuclei from frozen tissues, to the very large, like primary cardiomyocytes and spheroids.
    The SMARTer ICELL8 has been validated for multiple applications, including gene expression analysis, full-length transcriptomics, T-Cell Receptor sequencing and ATAC-seq, which have been developed by Takara Bio’s R&D or ICELL8 users.

    A new analytical tool for protein characterization that combines the high resolution ion exchange (IEX) chromatography method for protein separation, with multi-angle light scattering (MALS). MALS coupled with size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS) is a standard and common method for characterizing protein mass, shape, aggregation, oligomerization, interactions and purity. The limited resolution of SEC interferes in some cases with the accurate analysis that can be achieved by MALS. These include mixtures of protein populations with identical or very similar masses, oligomers with poor separation and small peptides. Here we show that combining MALS with the higher resolution separation technique IEX (IEX-MALS) allows a precise analysis of samples that cannot be resolved by SEC-MALS. We conclude that IEX-MALS is a valuable technique for protein characterization, especially for proteins that have limited analysis achieved with SEC-MALS.
