Arabidopsis receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase BIK1: purification, crystallization and X-ray diffraction analysis

Purification, crystallization, and X-ray diffraction analyses of Arabidopsis BIK1 receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase that plays an important role in growth and immune signalling pathways.

Accepted 20 August 2016

Expression and crystallographic studies of Arabidopsis thaliana GDP-mannose pyro­phosphorylase VTC1

The GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase VTC1 from A. thaliana was crystallized and co-crystallized with its substrate. X-ray diffraction data was collected for crystallographic analysis.

Accepted 20 August 2016

Crystal structure of yeast mono­thiol glutaredoxin Grx6 in complex with a gluta­thione-coordinated [2Fe–2S] cluster


Accepted 11 August 2016

1.65 Å resolution structure of the AraC-family transcriptional activator ToxT from Vibrio cholerae

A crystal structure of ToxT at 1.65 Å resolution with a similar overall structure to the previously determined structure is reported. A region that extends from Asp101 to Glu110, which can influence ToxT activity but was disordered in the previous structure, can be traced entirely in the current structure.

Accepted 11 August 2016

Crystal structure of the YajQ-family protein XC_3703 from Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris

The structure of XC_3703, a YajQ-family protein and a potential c-di-GMP receptor, has been determined at 2.1 Å resolution.

Accepted 8 August 2016

Crystal structure of Halobacterium salinarum halorhodopsin with a partially depopulated primary chloride-binding site

A structure of halorhodopsin with less than 50% occupancy of its primary chloride-binding site showed no structural changes in the protein, suggesting that anion binding is not strictly coupled to protein conformation in this crystal form.

Accepted 6 August 2016

Crystallization of and selenome­thionine phasing strategy for a SETMAR–DNA complex

The DNA-binding domain of SETMAR was successfully crystallized in a complex with its ancestral terminal inverted repeat and a variant of this sequence through a systematic approach, and initial Se SAD phasing was achieved through the judicious addition of Met residues.

Accepted 29 July 2016

The role of water molecules in the binding of class I and II peptides to the SH3 domain of the Fyn tyrosine kinase

The crystal structures of complexes of the SH3 domain of the Fyn tyrosine kinase with the high-affinity peptides VSL12 (class I) and APP12 (class II) have been solved at 1.6 and 2.1 Å resolution, respectively. These structures support an important role of water molecules in facilitating conformational changes to allow binding of the proline-rich motifs in the two available orientations in this family of SH3 domains.

Accepted 23 July 2016

Crystal structure of pyruvate de­carboxylase from Zymobacter palmae

The crystal structure of Z. palmae pyruvate decarboxylase was elucidated at 2.15 Å resolution.
