In situ proteolysis of an N-terminal His tag with thrombin improves the diffraction quality of human aldo-keto reductase 1C3 crystals

In situ specific proteolytic removal of a His tag by thrombin improves the morphology and diffraction quality of crystals of human aldo-keto reductase 1C3.

CD163 long-range scavenger receptor cysteine-rich repeat: expression, purification and X-ray crystallographic characterization

The CD163 long-range scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) repeat was prepared in a Drosophila system and was crystallized using 20% PEG 4000, 0.15 M potassium sodium tartrate tetrahydrate pH 8.5. X-ray crystallographic characterization of this long-range SRCR repeat will provide structural and functional information for the scavenger receptor superfamily.

Accepted 3 April 2018

Improved protein-crystal identification by using 2,2,2-tri­chloro­ethanol as a fluorescence enhancer

Protein-crystal labelling with 2,2,2-trichloroethanol for more sensitive detection using UV light is described.

Accepted 23 March 2018

A perspective on structural and mechanistic aspects of protein O-fu­cosylation


Accepted 7 March 2018

Making glycoproteins a little bit sweeter with PDB_REDO

The results and challenges of carbohydrate handling in the current PDB_REDO databank are discussed.

Accepted 4 January 2018

Structure of a Talaromyces pinophilus GH62 arabino­furanosidase in complex with AraDNJ at 1.25 Å resolution

The three-dimensional structure of a fungal arabinofuranosidase from CAZY family GH62 has been solved at 1.25 Å resolution in complex with the bespoke arabinofuranosidase inhibitor AraDNJ, shedding light on the activity of this catalyst in the enzymatic deconstruction of arabinoxylans.
