    Direct assessment of substrate binding to the Neurotransmitter:Sodium Symporter LeuT by solid state NMR

    Simon Erlendsson et al.
    Solid state NMR is unable to detect any association of substrate to the second binding site, S2, in the extracellular vestibule of the Neurotransmitter:Sodium Symporter LeuT.

    Kin cell lysis is a danger signal that activates antibacterial pathways of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Michele LeRoux et al.
    The death of bacterial kin cells releases a danger signal that activates a posttranscriptional response in surviving cells, resulting in the rapid elaboration of interbacterial competition factors.

    Plasmon resonance and the imaging of metal-impregnated neurons with the laser scanning confocal microscope

    Karen J Thompson et al.
    A new method allows silver- and gold-labeled tissues to be imaged with confocal microscopy, avoiding the problem of fluorescence photobleaching.

    Structure and dynamics underlying elementary ligand binding events in human pacemaking channels

    Marcel P Goldschen-Ohm et al.
    Single-molecule resolution of cAMP binding to the ligand binding domain of pacemaking channels in zero-mode waveguides reveals the dynamics of the distinct steps underlying both binding and isomerization of the binding domain.

    Cystic fibrosis drug ivacaftor stimulates CFTR channels at picomolar concentrations

    László Csanády, Beáta Töröcsik
    Aqueous solubility of cystic fibrosis drug ivacaftor is ~200-fold lower, whereas the potency of its stimulatory effect on the CFTR channel is >100-fold higher, than reported, and is fully reversible.

    Heparin-induced tau filaments are polymorphic and differ from those in Alzheimer’s and Pick’s diseases

    Wenjuan Zhang et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of heparin-induced tau filaments differ from those observed in neurodegenerative disease, illustrating their structural versatility, and prompting questions about the relevance of in vitro amyloid models.

    The AFF4 scaffold binds human P-TEFb adjacent to HIV Tat

    Ursula Schulze-Gahmen et al.
    Structure-function analysis of the super elongation complex formed when HIV replicates inside cells reveals that the HIV-1 Tat protein binds to a cleft between P-TEFb, an enzyme that is involved in normal transcription, and AFF4, a protein that is used to build the super elongation complex

    Molecular basis for allosteric specificity regulation in class Ia ribonucleotide reductase from Escherichia coli

    Christina M Zimanyi et al.
    Substrate and effector bound structures of a bacterial ribonucleotide reductase reveal the molecular basis by which substrate preference is modulated by a distal site on the enzyme.

    Structure of catalase determined by MicroED

    Brent L Nannenga et al.
    Building on previous work (Shi et al., 2013), we have used MicroED to determine the structure of catalase at 3.2 Å resolution from a single crystal.
