Until he gets you to the other side: Highly efficient counterion activation by amphiphilic calixarenes (gray cones) can mediate the transport of short peptide substrates for kinases across lipid memb...
Associative chemosensing by fluorescent macrocycle–dye complexes – a versatile enzyme assay platform beyond indicator displacementFrank Biedermann, Denisa Hathazi & Werner M. Nau
Enzymatic reactions of aromatic substrates can be monitored by fluorescence with μM sensitivity in real time by using self-assembled fluorescent receptors.
An Amphiphilic Sulfonatocalixarene as an Activator for Membrane Transport of Lysine‐rich Peptides and ProteinsYu-Chen Pan, Andrea Barba-Bon, Han‐Wen Tian, Fei Ding, Andreas Hennig, Werner Nau & Dong-Sheng Guo
An amphiphilic sulfonatocalixarene (sCx5-6C) was rationally designed as an activator for membrane transport of lysine-rich peptides and proteins. sCx5-6C binds tightly with lysine and is able to e...
High binding constants of 19 inorganic cations with the cucurbit[n]uril homologues (CBn, n = 5, 6, 7, 8) in water were determined and the far-reaching consequences and interferences of the high affinities (millimolar to micromolar) are discussed.
