    Functional role of the type 1 pilus rod structure in mediating host-pathogen interactions

    Caitlin N Spaulding et al.
    The helical rod structure and dynamic spring-like properties of the type 1 pilus are evolutionarily fine-tuned for functioning in host-pathogen interactions during urinary tract infection and gut colonization.

    Structural basis of host recognition and biofilm formation by Salmonella Saf pili

    Longhui Zeng et al.
    SafDAA-SafDAA structure and functional characterizations reveal a pili-mediated inter-cellular oligomerization mechanism for bacterial aggregation and biofilm formation in Salmonella enterica.

    Allosteric signalling in the outer membrane translocation domain of PapC usher

    Irene Farabella et al.
    Input from computational models has enabled the detection of allosteric communication that modulates the gating mechanism of a bacterial outer-membrane protein.

    Target DNA bending by the Mu transpososome promotes careful transposition and prevents its reversal

    James R Fuller, Phoebe A Rice
    Biochemical data demonstrate that the conformation of the target site DNA can dramatically modulate the kinetics and directionality of the otherwise isoenergetic transposition reaction of DDE transposases.

    Sequence co-evolution gives 3D contacts and structures of protein complexes

    Thomas A Hopf et al.
    Interactions in protein complexes can be predicted from evolutionary information from genomic sequences.

    LINE-1 protein localization and functional dynamics during the cell cycle

    Paolo Mita et al.
    A combination of functional, biochemical and imaging studies show that LINE-1/L1 proteins and mRNA enter the nucleus through mitotic nuclear membrane breakdown, interact with components of the DNA replication fork and mediate retrotransposition during S phase.
