Mocr: a novel fusion tag for enhancing solubility that is compatible with structural biology applications.
A persistent problem in heterologous protein production is insolubility of the target protein when expressed to high level in the host cell. A widely employed strategy for overcoming this problem isExpand

Amphipathic small molecules mimic the binding mode and function of endogenous transcription factors.
Small molecules that reconstitute the binding mode(s) of a protein and in doing so elicit a programmed functional response offer considerable advantages in the control of complex biologicalExpand
