Leo James’ group, in the LMB’s PNAC Division, has identified surprising protein modifications that underly Trim-Away protein degradation technology, which may explain its broad applicability to degrade almost any cellular protein.
Using electron microscopy, Tanmay Bharat’s group reveals the surface layer structure of the extremophilic bacterium, Deinococcus radiodurans.
The groups of Marta Zlatic and Albert Cardona in the LMB’s Neurobiology Division have mapped the Drosophila larval brain, which contains 3016 neurons and 548,000 synapses and is the most complex brain ever mapped in its entirety.
Using a combination of light microscopy and biochemical assays, Harvey McMahon’s group, in the LMB’s Neurobiology Division, have identified aggregation-dependent endocytosis (ADE) as the pathway by which cells respond to surface perturbations.
Julian Gough’s group, in the LMB’s Structural Studies Division, has designed a computational method for genome analysis capable of making knowledge-based predictions directly from a human genome.
In an international collaboration led by Leo James’ group, researchers have discovered that HIV-1 builds its capsid using a metabolite called IP6 that it captures from cells with a net-like protein lattice. Disabling this capture mechanism prevents capsid construction and renders HIV-1 non-infectious.
