    Inducing conformational preference of the membrane protein transporter EmrE through conservative mutations

    Maureen Leninger et al.
    Conservative mutations within a secondary active transport protein influenced the conformational equilibrium probed using NMR spectroscopy which correlated to the functional output in vivo.

    Co-expression of xenopsin and rhabdomeric opsin in photoreceptors bearing microvilli and cilia

    Oliver Vöcking et al.
    The recently characterized opsin group of xenopsins is likely a major player in animal eye evolution and may have been present in an ancient, highly plastic eye photoreceptor cell type.

    Improved use of a public good selects for the evolution of undifferentiated multicellularity

    John H Koschwanez et al.
    The ability to share resources for the benefit of all members of a group may have driven ancient organisms to evolve from a unicellular to a multicellular state.

    Assembling the Tat protein translocase

    Felicity Alcock et al.
    Evolutionary bioinformatics and experimentation are applied to the components of the Tat protein transport system to elucidate the structure of the membrane-bound receptor complex and to deduce a molecular description for its substrate-triggered activation.

    Robust and accurate prediction of residue–residue interactions across protein interfaces using evolutionary information

    Sergey Ovchinnikov et al.
    Co-evolving residue pairs in the different components of a protein complex almost always make contact across the protein–protein interface, thus providing powerful restraints for the modeling of protein complexes.

    Mitochondrial copper and phosphate transporter specificity was defined early in the evolution of eukaryotes

    Xinyu Zhu et al.
    Ancient evolutionary signatures reveal mechanistic details of substrate specificity in copper-transporting mitochondria carrier family proteins.

    Characterization of the ABC methionine transporter from Neisseria meningitidis reveals that lipidated MetQ is required for interaction

    Naima G Sharaf et al.
    NmMetQ is a lipoprotein that tethers to membranes via a lipid anchor and has dual function and localization, playing a role in NmMetNI-mediated transport at the inner membrane and moonlighting on the bacterial surface.
