    Controlling opioid receptor functional selectivity by targeting distinct subpockets of the orthosteric site

    Rajendra Uprety et al.
    The structure-based design established a new approach to control pathway-selective activation of opioid receptors, resulting in new dual MOR/KOR G-protein biased agonist analgesics with attenuated liabilities.

    Identification of ligand-specific G protein-coupled receptor states and prediction of downstream efficacy via data-driven modeling

    Oliver Fleetwood et al.
    Ligands with different efficacy profiles shift the free energy landscape of the beta2 adrenergic receptor activation and stabilize diverse active-like states via the switch of microswitches lining an allosteric pathway.

    Chemical genetics and proteome-wide site mapping reveal cysteine MARylation by PARP-7 on immune-relevant protein targets

    Kelsie M Rodriguez et al.
    A combined chemical genetics, proximity labeling, and ADP-ribose site mapping approach shows that PARP-7 mono-ADP-ribosylates immune-relevant proteins on cysteine amino acids.

    Charge-driven condensation of RNA and proteins suggests broad role of phase separation in cytoplasmic environments

    Bercem Dutagaci et al.
    Charge complementarity between RNA and proteins may be a universal principle for phase separation in biology without requiring disorder or specific multivalent interactions.

    Structure and mechanism of a phage-encoded SAM lyase revises catalytic function of enzyme family

    Xiaohu Guo et al.
    The first structure of a bacteriophage-encoded S-adenosyl methionine degrading enzyme was solved and demonstrated to catalyze a unimolecular lyase reaction occurring at the domain interface of a trimeric structure.

    Improved lipidomic profile mediates the effects of adherence to healthy lifestyles on coronary heart disease

    Jiahui Si et al.
    Lifestyle interventions and statins may target different components of the lipid profile, suggesting that they are not redundant strategies but could be combined for better benefits.

    Nanoscopic anatomy of dynamic multi-protein complexes at membranes resolved by graphene-induced energy transfer

    Nadia Füllbrunn et al.
    The axial organization and dynamics of the HOPS complex at membrane surface are resolved by graphene-induced energy transfer with subnanometer resolution.
