Members of the AAA family of ATPases assemble into hexameric double rings and perform vital functions, yet their molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. Here, we report structures of the Pex1/Pex6 complex; mutations in these proteins frequently cause peroxisomal diseases. The structures were determined in the presence of different nucleotides by(More)
The Pex1 and Pex6 proteins are members of the AAA family of ATPases and are involved in peroxisome biogenesis. Recently, cryo-electron microscopy structures of the Pex1-Pex6 complex in different nucleotide states have been determined. This Structural Snapshot describes the structural features of the complex and their implications for its function, as well(More)
Organophosphorus (OP) based pesticides are known powerful inhibitors of cholinesterases, thus the toxicity of this class of compounds causes serious environmental and human health concerns. We report that benzodipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (BDPPZ) and 3,6-dimethylbenzodipyrido-[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (DM-BDPPZ) provide independent fluorescent and(More)
