Lan Zhu from Arizona State University explains how cryo-EM methods can be used to obtain structural information on membrane proteins such as GPCRs.
Researchers grew large crystals and used an X-ray machine with a less intense beam to elucidate the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease at room temperature.
Using X-ray crystallography, researchers have revealed the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease, designing an inhibitor to bind to this target and prevent viral replication.
Scientists have created an artificial protein able to recognise and bind cell surface carbohydrates with high affinity and selectivity.
A new study has used several imaging techniques to characterise C. diff toxins, which could help to design drugs to combat infections from the bacteria.
Advances in mass spectrometry: unlocking the potential of chemical crosslinking as a structural biology tool
Chemical crosslinking coupled with mass spectrometry (XL-MS) has been used for many years to study protein structure and function. However, recent advances in MS technology, as well as crosslinking reagents and data analysis tools, mean the technique has truly come of age. Here, Albert JR Heck, Alexander Makarov, Henning Urlaub…
The imaging equipment, European XFEL, is said to mark a new age of protein movie-making and enables enzymes involved in disease to be observed in real-time.
A report from scientists at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology highlights the advantages and disadvantages of serial femtosecond X-ray crystallography. This article investigates the review, focusing on its role in drug development.
A study by researchers at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine has been the first to achieve stable simulations of DNA crystals...
