Structural snapshots of human HDAC8 provide insights into the class I histone deacetylases.
Modulation of the acetylation state of histones plays a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) catalyze the removal of acetyl groups from lysines near the NExpand
Structural and kinetic analysis of Escherichia coli GDP-mannose 4,6 dehydratase provides insights into the enzyme's catalytic mechanism and regulation by GDP-fucose.
BACKGROUND GDP-mannose 4,6 dehydratase (GMD) catalyzes the conversion of GDP-(D)-mannose to GDP-4-keto, 6-deoxy-(D)-mannose. This is the first and regulatory step in the de novo biosynthesis ofExpand
Visualizing ATP-dependent RNA translocation by the NS3 helicase from HCV.
The structural mechanism by which nonstructural protein 3 (NS3) from the hepatitis C virus (HCV) translocates along RNA is currently unknown. HCV NS3 is an ATP-dependent motor protein essential forExpand
Structural, Biochemical, and Biophysical Characterization of Idelalisib Binding to Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase δ*
Background: Idelalisib is a PI3Kδ inhibitor used to treat hematological malignancies. Results: Idelalisib is selective, noncovalent, reversible, and ATP-competitive. Conclusion: The crystal structureExpand
Crystal structure of the hypoxanthine-guanine-xanthine phosphoribosyltransferase from the protozoan parasite Tritrichomonas foetus.
The crystal structure of the hypoxanthine-guanine-xanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (HGXPRTase) from Tritrichomonas foetus has been determined and refined against X-ray data to 1.9 A resolution. T.Expand
Structural basis for unique mechanisms of folding and hemoglobin binding by a malarial protease.
Falcipain-2 (FP2), the major cysteine protease of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, is a hemoglobinase and promising drug target. Here we report the crystal structure of FP2 inExpand
The taste-active regions of monellin, a potently sweet protein.
Monellin, a protein found in the berries of the West African plant Dioscoreophyllum cumminsii, is one of the most potently sweet compounds known. The native three-dimensional structure of monellin isExpand
Clinical targeting of HIV capsid protein with a long-acting small molecule
Oral antiretroviral agents provide life-saving treatments for millions of people living with HIV, and can prevent new infections via pre-exposure prophylaxis 1 – 5 . However, some people living withExpand
Crystal structure of human cathepsin V.
Cathepsin V is a lysosomal cysteine protease that is expressed in the thymus, testis and corneal epithelium. We have determined the 1.6 A resolution crystal structure of human cathepsin V associatedExpand
Crystal structure of Tritrichomonas foetus inosine-5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase and the enzyme-product complex.
Inosine-5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) is an attractive drug target for the control of parasitic infections. The enzyme catalyzes the oxidation of inosine monophosphate (IMP) to xanthosineExpand
