Cyanobacterial photosynthesis in the oceans: the origins and significance of divergent light-harvesting strategies.
Prochlorococcus and Synechococcus are abundant unicellular cyanobacteria and major participants in global carbon cycles. Although they are closely related and often coexist in the same ocean habitat,Expand

Structure of epsilon15 bacteriophage reveals genome organization and DNA packaging/injection apparatus
The critical viral components for packaging DNA, recognizing and binding to host cells, and injecting the condensed DNA into the host are organized at a single vertex of many icosahedral viruses.Expand

In vitro unfolding, refolding, and polymerization of human γD crystallin, a protein involved in cataract formation
Human γD crystallin (HγD‐Crys), a major protein of the human eye lens, is a primary component of cataracts. This 174‐residue primarily β‐sheet protein is made up of four Greek keys separated into twoExpand

Backbone structure of the infectious ε15 virus capsid revealed by electron cryomicroscopy
A half-century after the determination of the first three-dimensional crystal structure of a protein, more than 40,000 structures ranging from single polypeptides to large assemblies have beenExpand
