    Analyzing native membrane protein assembly in nanodiscs by combined non-covalent mass spectrometry and synthetic biology

    Erik Henrich et al.
    As the function of membrane proteins is often influenced by its membrane environment the presented combinatorial approach is of great value for the investigation of membrane protein complexes in natural or even manipulated lipid bilayers.

    Homology-guided identification of a conserved motif linking the antiviral functions of IFITM3 to its oligomeric state

    Kazi Rahman et al.
    A disease-associated polymorphism in a related protein that regulates neurotransmitter release reveals that antiviral protein IFITM3 forms oligomers to rigidify membranes and inhibit virus fusion with cells.

    CryoEM structures of open dimers of gyrase A in complex with DNA illuminate mechanism of strand passage

    Katarzyna M Soczek et al.
    CryoEM structures of open gyrase A dimers and DNA in two states representing steps either prior to or after passage through the DNA-gate, show where a putative T-segment is found.

    An unfolded protein-induced conformational switch activates mammalian IRE1

    G Elif Karagöz et al.
    ER-stress sensing mechanism of the unfolded protein response sensor/transducer IRE1 is conserved from yeast to mammals, where in mammals, unfolded protein binding to IRE1's ER lumenal domain is coupled to its oligomerization and activation through an allosteric conformational change.

    Time-resolved studies define the nature of toxic IAPP intermediates, providing insight for anti-amyloidosis therapeutics

    Andisheh Abedini et al.
    Toxic IAPP intermediates have some molecular features that are similar to, and others that are distinct from, toxic species reported for other amyloidogenic polypeptides.

    Nonenzymatic copying of RNA templates containing all four letters is catalyzed by activated oligonucleotides

    Noam Prywes et al.
    Nonenzymatic polymerization can copy templates containing all four RNA monomers, a prerequisite for the transition to the RNA world.
