A bacterial enzyme carries out a key step in carbon fixation which could provide a basis for engineering highly efficient CO2-fixing enzymes for bioenergy and bioproduct applications.
X-ray macromolecular crystallography reveals the structure and mode of interaction of the enzyme phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase, which is integral to protein synthesis in a pathogenic bacterium.
Direct evidence reveals that hemicellulose forms pseudo-lignin aggregates during thermochemical pretreatment, which reduces enzyme accessibility and increases biomass recalcitrance.
Researchers have identified how iron-deficient plants optimize photosynthesis to protect themselves from absorbing too much light.
Soft X-ray tomography combines rapid collection and high-resolution visualization to reveal the shape of cellular substructures and their interactions.
Enzyme-pseudoenzyme complexes involved in vitamin B6 synthesis in plants display variable stoichiometry.
