    Cryo-EM structures reveal specialization at the myosin VI-actin interface and a mechanism of force sensitivity

    Pinar S Gurel et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of actomyosin VI in multiple nucleotide states reveal a unique actin-myosin interface and a mechanism of force-sensitivity; furthermore, myosin VI remodels F-actin, suggesting a role for actin structural plasticity during force generation.

    Cryo-EM structures of the human glutamine transporter SLC1A5 (ASCT2) in the outward-facing conformation

    Xiaodi Yu et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of unliganded SLC1A5 and its complex with glutamine in outward-facing state provide insights into the substrate specificity and transport mechanism and will be helpful for developing selective inhibitors.

    Cryo-EM single particle analysis with the Volta phase plate

    Radostin Danev, Wolfgang Baumeister
    The Volta phase plate enables in-focus single particle analysis at near atomic resolutions, which could expand the capabilities of cryo-EM, especially for small, flexible or heterogeneous macromolecular samples.

    Cryo-EM structure of the rhodopsin-Gαi-βγ complex reveals binding of the rhodopsin C-terminal tail to the gβ subunit

    Ching-Ju Tsai et al.
    The structure of a light-sensitive G protein-coupled receptor in complex with a Gi-protein heterotrimer provides a structural foundation for the role of the receptor C-terminal tail in scaffolding and signaling.

    Using the Volta phase plate with defocus for cryo-EM single particle analysis

    Radostin Danev et al.
    Building on previous work in cryo-electron microscopy (Entchev et al, 2015), it shown that a combination of the Volta phase plate and a small amount of defocus can simplify the experimental set-up, increase the data acquisition rate and improve resolution.
