Unformatted text preview: fractions vanishes. Thus, lipids in the vicinity of bound protein will eventually undergo the conformational transition.” Paper: A chemical approach … This paper was exponentially harder to comprehend, as I have little to no understanding of GPI anchors I found it very interesting that they were capable of implantation and retention of synthetic GPI anchor analogous in proteins on the cell’s surface. Also, the fact that GPI anchor analogs synthesized in the lab was capable of functions similarly to their “native counterparts” was also very interesting. Questions: 1. What are the implications of the Lipid Mobility paper? 2. Please define slaved diffusion? 3. Can you spell glycoslyphophtidylinositol, backwards? 4. Any tips or advice for someone looking to get into research?...
