    Mechanisms of PDZ domain scaffold assembly illuminated by use of supported cell membrane sheets

    Simon Erlendsson et al.
    Investigations of binding of the scaffold protein PICK1 to transmembrane proteins in their native membrane environment demonstrate potent but slow dynamics and reveal distinct binding modes supporting different biological functions.

    Membrane palmitoylated protein 2 is a synaptic scaffold protein required for synaptic SK2-containing channel function

    Gukhan Kim et al.
    A new synaptic scaffold important for neurotransmission and synaptic plasticity has been identified.

    Dual interaction of scaffold protein Tim44 of mitochondrial import motor with channel-forming translocase subunit Tim23

    See-Yeun Ting et al.
    The motor that drives preproteins into the mitochondrial matrix is coupled to the translocase by Tim44, a two-domain scaffold protein with an intrinsically disordered "dynamic arm" and a structurally stable anchoring domain.

    Scaffold-mediated gating of Cdc42 signalling flux

    Péter Rapali et al.
    The scaffold Bem1 increases the rate of GEF-mediated Cdc42 activation, while also increasing the rate and extent of GEF phosphorylation by PAK, which attenuates further scaffold stimulation.

    Septin/anillin filaments scaffold central nervous system myelin to accelerate nerve conduction

    Julia Patzig et al.
    A newly identified component in the architecture of the axon/myelin-unit – the septin/anillin scaffold – maintains the structure of myelin in the central nervous system, thereby preventing myelin outfoldings.

    The role of scaffold reshaping and disassembly in dynamin driven membrane fission

    Martina Pannuzzo et al.
    Computational modeling of a dynamin-constricted membrane neck can rank proposed shape changes of the helical scaffold in terms of their fission aptitude and elucidate the associated pathways.

    BRCT domains of the DNA damage checkpoint proteins TOPBP1/Rad4 display distinct specificities for phosphopeptide ligands

    Matthew Day et al.
    Structural and biochemical analyses of BRCT domain interactions defines TOPBP1/Rad4 selectivity for phosphorylated motifs, allowing identification of new interactions, and providing insights into assembly of different TOPBP1-scaffolded DNA repair complexes.

    An unexpected INAD PDZ tandem-mediated plcβ binding in Drosophila photo receptors

    Fei Ye et al.
    Biochemical and structural studies uncover an unexpected mode of interaction, with unprecedented high affinity, between INAD scaffold and NORPA that is critical for Drosophila compound eye photo-transduction.

    A mitotic kinase scaffold depleted in testicular seminomas impacts spindle orientation in germ line stem cells

    Heidi Hehnly et al.
    A protein kinase complex that is important for cell division is lost in testicular seminoma, which is a common cancer in men.
