Characterization of a glycoprotein entry complex from a novel orthomyxovirus

2019/20 • $50,000 • PI
***Characterization of a glycoprotein entry complex from a novel orthomyxovirus******Infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) causes severe anemia in salmon and has mortality rates that approach 100%. Over the last 30 years, ISAV has caused major disease outbreaks in farmed salmon in Canada, the...

Characterization of a glycoprotein entry complex from a novel orthomyxovirus

2013/14-2018/19 • $378,000 • PI
Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) is a significant emerging disease of Atlantic farmed salmon that causes severe anemia. The disease can progress slowly throughout an infected farm, and mortality rates may approach 100%. The virus was first identified in Norway in 1984, but over the last 25...

High resolution characterization of macromolecular structure and dynamics

2016/17 • $145,571 • PI,CO
Funds requested in this NSERC Research Tools and Instruments (Category 1) grant application will be used to purchase a state-of-the-art and new-to-market Size Exclusion Chromatography Multi-Angle Static Light Scattering (SEC-MALS) system and to upgrade a multiuser analytical ultracentrifugation...

Core facility infrastructure for optimizing conditions for lipidic cubic phase-based membrane protein crystallization

2014/15 • $150,000 • PI,CO
Membrane proteins perform a variety of biological functions that are critical to the survival of bacteria, plants, and eukaryotes. Crystal structures of these membrane proteins have shed enormous insights into the functions of transporters, signal transduction receptors, and enzymes. However,...

Examining Biomolecular Interactions using Microscale Thermophoresis

2013/14 • $150,000 • PI,CO
As part of a team of 10 structural biologists at the University of Toronto (spanning several departments and faculties), we use biophysical tools such as Atomic Force Microscopy, NMR spectroscopy, X- ray crystallography and electron cryomicroscopy to analyze the biomolecular interactions between...
