Skeletal muscle is an example of a tissue that deploys a self-renewing stem cell, the satellite cell, to effect regeneration. Recent in vitro studies have highlighted a role for asymmetric divisions in renewing rare "immortal" stem cells and generating a clonal population of differentiation-competent myoblasts. However, this model currently lacks in vivo(More)
BACKGROUND The crystallographic determination of protein structures can be computationally demanding and for difficult cases can benefit from user-friendly interfaces to high-performance computing resources. Molecular replacement (MR) is a popular protein crystallographic technique that exploits the structural similarity between proteins that share some(More)
Determining the X-ray crystallographic structures of proteins using the technique of molecular replacement (MR) can be a time and labor-intensive trial-and-error process, involving evaluating tens to hundreds of possible solutions to this complex 3D jigsaw puzzle. For challenging cases indicators of success often do not appear until the later stages of(More)
