    Screening of candidate substrates and coupling ions of transporters by thermostability shift assays

    Homa Majd et al.
    It is technically difficult to identify transport proteins, but here a method is presented that exploits the principle that they are stabilized in detergent solution when they bind their substrate.

    Multi-view light-sheet imaging and tracking with the MaMuT software reveals the cell lineage of a direct developing arthropod limb

    Carsten Wolff et al.
    Quantitative analyses of multi-dimensional microscopy datasets with a new Fiji/ImageJ plugin for cell tracking reveal the lineage restrictions and morphogenetic cellular behaviors underlying embryonic limb outgrowth in the direct developing crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis.

    Molecular structure of human KATP in complex with ATP and ADP

    Kenneth Pak Kin Lee et al.
    MgADP binding to the high-affinity 'consensus' ATPase active site of SUR1 and remodeling of the L0-loop (lasso region) overrides tonic ATP inhibition of KATP channels.

    Model-based local density sharpening of cryo-EM maps

    Arjen J Jakobi et al.
    Local sharpening of cryo-electron microscopy maps using atomic models can increase the interpretability of densities in cases of resolution variation and facilitates model building and refinement.
