The convergent evolution of yeast Mim1/2 and trypanosomal pATOM36 enable the first demonstration of reciprocal functional rescue of two evolutionary unrelated mitochondrial biogenesis complexes belonging to two different eukaryotic supergroups.
New hybrid structure determination methods leveraging the inherent biophysical properties of a macromolecule through molecular dynamics simulations provide accurate and cost-efficient ways of achieving atomic structures from high resolution cryo-electron density maps.
Atg43 serves as a selective autophagy receptor by tethering isolation membranes to mitochondria to promote mitophagy and plays a mitophagy-independent role that facilitates normal cell growth in fission yeast.
Replication origins are established throughout the genome with the exception of transcribed genes, and the local chromatin composition likely modulates the density of ORC and MCM as well as origin activation.
A technique called meta3C provides an elegant and integrated approach to metagenomic analysis by allowing the de novo assembly, scaffolding and 3D characterization of unknown genomes from a complex mix of species
