    A CTP-dependent gating mechanism enables ParB spreading on DNA

    Adam SB Jalal et al.
    A structural and biochemical approach shows that CTP binding and hydrolysis regulate nucleation, spreading, and recycling of a chromosome segregation protein ParB.

    Structure of Escherichia coli respiratory complex I reconstituted into lipid nanodiscs reveals an uncoupled conformation

    Piotr Kolata, Rouslan G Efremov
    The dynamic structure of respiratory complex I from mesophilic bacterium is revealed and demonstrates existence of uncoupled conformations in the bacterial complex.

    Identical sequences found in distant genomes reveal frequent horizontal transfer across the bacterial domain

    Michael Sheinman et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer between distantly related bacterial species is frequent and widespread and can be efficiently identified using alignment-free methods.

    Biosynthesis of a sulfated exopolysaccharide, synechan, and bloom formation in the model cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803

    Kaisei Maeda et al.
    A potentially useful cyanobacterial sulfated exopolysaccharide and its biosynthesis and regulation genes, which contribute to the laboratorial bloom formation, are elucidated for the first time among prokaryotes.

    Glycan-based shaping of the microbiota during primate evolution

    Sumnima Singh et al.
    Ggta1 deletion in mice shapes and reduces the microbiota pathogenicity and probably contributed to the natural selection of GGTA1 loss-of-function mutations in the ancestral primates that gave rise to humans.

    De novo macrocyclic peptides dissect energy coupling of a heterodimeric ABC transporter by multimode allosteric inhibition

    Erich Stefan et al.
    By random nonstandard peptide integrated discovery, combinatorial macrocyclic peptides were leavaged that target a heterodimeric ABC transport complex and explore fundamental principles of the substrate translocation cycle.

    The final step of 40S ribosomal subunit maturation is controlled by a dual key lock

    Laura Plassart et al.
    Cryo-EM and functional studies reveal how combined action of proteins RPS26/eS26 and RIO1 allows late precursors to the human small ribosomal particle to be matured into fully translation-competent 40S subunits.

    The metal cofactor zinc and interacting membranes modulate SOD1 conformation-aggregation landscape in an in vitro ALS model

    Achinta Sannigrahi et al.
    How do the metal cofactors present in the protein SOD1 collaborate with the interacting membrane to define the role of this protein in the disease ALS?

    PomX, a ParA/MinD ATPase activating protein, is a triple regulator of cell division in Myxococcus xanthus

    Dominik Schumacher et al.
    In the PomX/Y/Z cell division regulatory system, PomX is a PomZ ATPase activating protein, a scaffold for PomX/Y/Z complex formation, and important for fission of the PomX/Y/Z complex during division.
