Accepted 27 May 2016

Structure of a double-hexamer of the Pyrococcus furiosus MCM N-terminal domain

The structure of a double-hexamer of the MCM N-terminal domain from Pyrococcus furiousus is presented and analyzed.

Accepted 25 May 2016

Crystal structure of truncated aspartate transcarbamoylase from Plasmodium falciparum

A crystal structure and preliminary structure-based mutagenesis and activity studies of Aspartate transcarbamoylase from Plasmodium falciparum are reported.

Accepted 25 May 2016

Crystal structure of a thiolase from Escherichia coli at 1.8 Å resolution

Thiolases catalyze the Claisen condensation of two acetyl-CoA molecules to acetoacetyl-CoA as well as the reverse degradative reaction. The present research work revealed that various structural aspects of E. coli thiolase including enzyme kinetics, substrate binding, tetrameric organization and active-site water network.

Accepted 21 May 2016

Crystal structure of the cyan fluorescent protein Cerulean-S175G

The crystal structure of Cerulean-S175G was compared with those of Cerulean and SCFP3A, which are notable variants of enhanced cyan fluorescent protein (ECFP). A detailed comparison of the three structures revealed that the notable conformational changes of ECFP variants can be understood mainly in terms of the interaction between the Trp66 residue of the chromophore and residues 145–148 of β-strand 7.

Structural insights into the catalytic reaction trigger and inhibition of D-3-hydroxybutyrate de­hydrogenase

Crystal structures of A. faecalis D-3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase in complex with NAD+ and D-3-hydroxybutyrate, malonate or methylmalonate reveal the mechanisms of the catalytic reaction and its inhibition.
