Abstract
A PROJECT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP TECHNIQUES FOR STABILIZATION OF PROTEINS BY COVALENT CROSSLINKING. WE PLAN TO USE MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY SPECIFIC FOR T-2 TOXIN AS THE PRIMARY PROTEIN TO USE FOR DEVELOPING STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY. USING LIGAND STABILIZATION TO DECREASE INACTIVATION DURING THE CROSSLINKING, WE PROPOSE TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTRAMOLECULAR CROSSLINKING BETWEEN BOTH HYDROPHILIC AND HYDROPHOBIC GROUPS IN THE PROTEIN MOLECULES AS WELL AS INTERMOLECULAR CROSSLINKING WITH HIGHLY STRESS RESISTANT PROTEIN.
