Air-stable organic semiconductors based on 6,6′-dithienylindigo and polymers thereof
Herein we report on the synthesis and properties of 6,6′-dithienylindigo (DTI), as well as its solubilized N,N′-di(tert-butoxy carbonyl) derivative (tBOC-DTI). tBOC-DTI can be electropolymerized andExpand

Arabidopsis and Chlamydomonas phosphoribulokinase crystal structures complete the redox structural proteome of the Calvin–Benson cycle
Significance In chloroplasts, five enzymes of the Calvin–Benson (CB) cycle are regulated by thioredoxins (TRXs). These enzymes have all been structurally characterized, with the notable exception ofExpand
