    Sampling the conformational space of the catalytic subunit of human γ-secretase

    Xiao-chen Bai et al.
    A masked cryo-EM image classification approach and the structure of an inhibitor-bound complex provide insights into the molecular flexibility of the catalytic subunit of gamma-secretase.

    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.

    Cryo-EM structure of the adenosine A2A receptor coupled to an engineered heterotrimeric G protein

    Javier García-Nafría et al.
    The adenosine A2a receptor couples to the heterotrimeric G protein Gs using both conserved contacts seen in other complexes and, in addition, novel contacts to the beta subunit of the G protein.

    Functional asymmetry and electron flow in the bovine respirasome

    Joana S Sousa et al.
    Cryo-EM structure of the mammalian respiratory supercomplex containing complexes I, III and IV shows a functional asymmetry of complex III, providing strong evidence for directed electron flow in the respirasome.

    Mechanism for nuclease regulation in RecBCD

    Martin Wilkinson et al.
    DNA unwinding triggers a conformational change in the RecD subunit of E. coli RecBCD helicase-nuclease that is transferred through the RecC subunit to activate the nuclease domain of the RecB subunit.

    CryoEM structures of membrane pore and prepore complex reveal cytolytic mechanism of Pneumolysin

    Katharina van Pee et al.
    The near-atomic cryoEM pore complex structure of pneumolysin, the main virulence factor of Streptococcus pneumoniae, shows how the individual domains rearrange during the pore formation.

    Structural basis for the inhibition of RecBCD by Gam and its synergistic antibacterial effect with quinolones

    Martin Wilkinson et al.
    Building on previous work (Wilkinson et al, 2016), it is shown that inhibition of RecBCD-induced DNA break repair can be used as a co-antibacterial strategy with quinolones.
