Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and structural defects in Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase.
Single-site mutants in the Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD) gene (SOD1) occur in patients with the fatal neurodegenerative disorder familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FALS). Complete screeningExpand

Structural Mechanism of Abscisic Acid Binding and Signaling by Dimeric PYR1
ABA Receptor Up Close Plants face a variety of environmental stresses, including drought, salinity, and cold. In the face of such stresses, the plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) triggers adaptiveExpand

Identification of a new cryptochrome class. Structure, function, and evolution.
Cryptochrome flavoproteins, which share sequence homology with light-dependent DNA repair photolyases, function as photoreceptors in plants and circadian clock components in animals. Here, we coupledExpand

Plant UVR8 Photoreceptor Senses UV-B by Tryptophan-Mediated Disruption of Cross-Dimer Salt Bridges
Donuts Dissociate In Arabidopsis, the UVR8 protein responds to ultraviolet-B (UV-B) light by dissociating into monomers, which are then available to interact with downstream factors that enact theExpand

Structural Basis for Isozyme-specific Regulation of Electron Transfer in Nitric-oxide Synthase*[boxs]
Three nitric-oxide synthase (NOS) isozymes play crucial, but distinct, roles in neurotransmission, vascular homeostasis, and host defense, by catalyzing Ca2+/calmodulin-triggered NO synthesis. Here,Expand

Structure of a Protein Photocycle Intermediate by Millisecond Time-Resolved Crystallography
The blue-light photoreceptor photoactive yellow protein (PYP) undergoes a self-contained light cycle. The atomic structure of the bleached signaling intermediate in the light cycle of PYP wasExpand
