Optical control of fast and processive engineered myosins in vitro and in living cells

February 18th, 2021 by Paul V. Ruijgrok

Nature Chemical Biology, Published online: 18 February 2021; doi:10.1038/s41589-021-00740-7

High-performance engineered myosins robustly change speed or direction in response to an optical signal. In living cells, these motors localize to the tips of protrusions when illuminated and deliver molecular cargos.

Nature Chemical Biology, Published online: 15 February 2021; doi:10.1038/s41589-020-00724-z

Genomics and metabolomics are widely used to explore specialized metabolite diversity. The Paired Omics Data Platform is a community initiative to systematically document links between metabolome and (meta)genome data, aiding identification of natural product biosynthetic origins and metabolite structures.

Peroxiredoxins couple metabolism and cell division in an ultradian cycle

February 11th, 2021 by Prince Saforo Amponsah

Nature Chemical Biology, Published online: 11 February 2021; doi:10.1038/s41589-020-00728-9

Hydrogen peroxide and peroxiredoxin oxidation levels oscillate during the yeast metabolic cycle, while the absence of peroxiredoxins or the use of thiol oxidants and reductants disrupts metabolic cycling and its coupling with cell division.
