    Comment on ‘Orthogonal lipid sensors identify transbilayer asymmetry of plasma membrane cholesterol’

    Kevin C Courtney et al.
    We challenge a recent report that most of the cholesterol in the plasma membrane of mammalian cells is in the exofacial leaflet.

    Comment on ‘YcgC represents a new protein deacetylase family in prokaryotes’

    Magdalena Kremer et al.
    We applied a combined synthetic biological, biochemical and mass-spectrometric approach to show that YcgC is not a member of a novel lysine deacetylase class in prokaryotes.
