Building on previous work (Syrjänen, Pellegrini, & Davies, 2014), it is shown that SYCP3 contributes to the architecture of meiotic chromosomes through local bridging interactions that result in large-scale compaction of the chromosome axis.
A high-resolution method to quantify interactions between lipid bilayers and single proteins under controlled load is presented and applied to key proteins involved in membrane fusion and formation and maintenance of membrane contact sites.
New insights into the assembly and membrane interactions of the caveolar coat complex reveal the reversible association/dissociation of distinct subcomplexes onto the membrane, which differs from the assembly/disassembly of clathrin-coated pits.
While the transcription factor c-Myc explores the space in the nucleus in an unrestricted manner, the elongation factor P-TEFb's sampling of the nucleus is constrained to a complex domain with fractal characteristics.
Single-molecule immunoprecipitation method reveals that the high catalytic rate and multi-tasking capability make a concerted contribution to the strong signaling potency of the HER2-HER3 heterodimers.
