    Computational design of thermostabilizing point mutations for G protein-coupled receptors

    Petr Popov et al.
    A comprehensive approach to prediction of stabilizing mutations in G-protein coupled receptors yields high hit rate and crystal structures of 5HT2C in both active and inactive states.

    Estrogen receptor alpha somatic mutations Y537S and D538G confer breast cancer endocrine resistance by stabilizing the activating function-2 binding conformation

    Sean W Fanning et al.
    Two common mutant versions of estrogen receptor alpha achieve constitutive activity and hormone-resistance by preferentially adopting a suite of conformations that expose the coregulator-binding surface.

    Spontaneous mutations and the origin and maintenance of quantitative genetic variation

    Wen Huang et al.
    Whole genome DNA sequence analysis, genome wide gene expression and complex organismal phenotypes in Drosophila mutation accumulation lines provide a robust estimate of the spontaneous mutation rate and mutational effects.

    The small molecule ISRIB rescues the stability and activity of Vanishing White Matter Disease eIF2B mutant complexes

    Yao Liang Wong et al.
    Vanishing White Matter Disease mutations compromise the function of the essential translation initiation factor eIF2B by destabilizing the holoenzyme, and the small molecule ISRIB reverses their pathogenic effect by promoting complex formation.

    Altered expression of a quality control protease in E. coli reshapes the in vivo mutational landscape of a model enzyme

    Samuel Thompson et al.
    Changes to cellular protein homeostasis reveal widespread advantageous effects of destabilizing mutations, opening the possibility to switch mutational landscapes back-and-forth from permissive to restrictive.
