Accepted 20 November 2015

Crystallization of nepenthesin I using a low-pH crystallization screen

The aspartic protease from N. gracilis was crystallized in complex with the inhibitor pepstatin A using a newly formulated low-pH screen. X-ray diffraction data showed that the crystals diffracted to 2.8 Å resolution.

Accepted 18 November 2015

Structures of plasmepsin II from Plasmodium falciparum in complex with two hydroxyethylamine-based inhibitors

The crystal structures described here demonstrate the conformational flexibility of the active-site cavity of the plasmepsins. The interactions of the different moieties in the P1′ position of the inhibitors have to be taken into account in the design of new potent plasmepsin inhibitors.

Accepted 18 November 2015

Crystallographic insights into the structure–activity relationships of di­azaborine enoyl-ACP reductase inhibitors

Crystallographic studies show that diazaborines lacking a sulfonyl group can successfully inhibit E. coli enoyl-ACP reductase.

Accepted 18 November 2015

Expression, purification, crystallization and X-ray diffraction analysis of ChiL, a chitinase from Chitiniphilus shinanonensis

The catalytic domain of ChiL, a chitinase from the chitin-degrading bacterium C. shinanonensis, was expressed, purified and crystallized. Preliminary X-ray analysis shows that the crystal belonged to the orthorhombic space group P212121 and diffracted to 1.25 Å resolution.

Accepted 17 November 2015

Crystallographic analysis of a cupin superfamily enzyme from Microcystis aeruginosa involved in aeruginosin biosynthesis

The recombinant expression, purification, crystallization and X-ray crystallographic analysis of AerE from M. aeruginosa, an enzyme belonging to the cupin superfamily which has been deduced to participate in the biosynthesis of the 2-carboxy-6-hydroxyoctahydroindole moiety of aeruginosin, are described.

Accepted 10 November 2015

Crystallographic analysis of RsmA, a ribosomal RNA small subunit methyltransferase A from Staphylococcus aureus. Corrigendum
