Crystal structure of the putative cyclase IdmH from the indanomycin nonribosomal peptide synthase/polyketide synthase

The crystal structure of IdmH from the biosynthetic gene cluster for indanomycin is presented.

High-throughput structures of protein–ligand complexes at room temperature using serial femtosecond crystallography

The ability to rapidly obtain structures of protein–ligand complexes using X-ray crystallography is central to drug discovery, but the typical cryocooling of samples and the effects of the X-ray beam may distort the observed ligand binding. X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) have the promise to solve these issues, but methods to rapidly produce structures of protein–ligand complexes at XFELs have not yet been realized. Here, an efficient solution using high-throughput, fixed-target serial femtosecond crystallography at an XFEL is demonstrated.

A comparative study of single-particle cryo-EM with liquid-nitrogen and liquid-helium cooling

Radiation damage is the most fundamental limitation for achieving high resolution in cryo-EM, and is expected to be reduced at liquid-helium temperature. Surprisingly, cryo-EM reconstructions of apoferritin samples cooled with liquid helium showed no improvement in resolution over liquid-nitro­gen-cooled samples, but showed substantially more beam-induced particle motion.

Relativistic correction of atomic scattering factors for high-energy electron diffraction

Relativistic electron diffraction depends on terms linear and quadratic in the electric potential, the latter being neglected in the frequently used relativistically corrected Schrödinger equation. Conventional tabulations for electron scattering and its large-angle extrapolations can be amended in closed form by a universal correction based on the screened Coulomb potential squared.

Structure of Sonic hedgehog protein in complex with zinc(II) and manganese(II) reveals ion-coordination plasticity relevant to peptide drug design

The Sonic hedgehog (Shh) protein is essential for embryonic patterning but can contribute to various cancers when the underlying signaling pathway is aberrantly activated. Here, the structure of the human Shh signaling domain is presented in complex with octahedrally coordinated Zn2+ and Mg2+ ions at 1.43 Å resolution that give rise to localized changes. The modes of ion coordination are compared to previous structures determined in isolation or in complex with binding partners, which reveals significant plasticity in the modes of metal coordination that has implications for the design of peptide drugs to repress the signaling pathway.
