A better model for the interpretation of protein hydrogen exchange data

When studying stability and folding of proteins hydrogen exchange substitution is a very important technique. However, the interpretation of the data is complicated by electrostatic effects and the magnitude of these has not been accounted for until now. Mulder et al. have now shown a way to better foretell these effects and thereby provide a key…

New long-read sequencing technology reveals the surprising complexity of circular RNAs

A paper from Jørgen Kjems and colleagues published in Nature Communications presents a new method to determine the full-length sequence and isoform variation of a class of RNAs called circular RNAs. The study is conducted in human and mouse brains and shows that many circRNAs exist in a large number of different version and that a special class of…

Professor Poul Nissen awarded Anders Jahre's large medical award 2021

One of the Nordic region's most prestigious research prizes, the Anders Jahre Prize, goes to Professor Poul Nissen from Aarhus University. Poul Nissen is awarded the prize for his research in the transport of proteins in and out of cells. This knowledge is of great importance for understanding diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and…

Binding site I of SERCA is not conserved in LMCA1. Alignment between LMCA1 G4 E2-BeF3- (red) and SERCA E2-AlF4- (pdb: 3b9r) (dark grey). Relevant Ca2+-coordinating residues are shown as sticks. The structures are aligned by the residues shown as sticks. SERCA Ca2+ binding site I and II are indicated. Figure: Sara Basse Hansen.

Ion and lipid transporters specialize for their niche

Cell viability require that a variety of functions at the cell membrane are maintained properly. P-type ATPases translocate substrates across the membrane, and they have evolved into different types taking care of specific substrates within a diverse range. Now, key structural aspects have been described on how two different types of P-type…
