The X-ray structure of a BAK homodimer reveals an inhibitory zinc binding site.
BAK/BAX-mediated mitochondrial outer-membrane permeabilization (MOMP) drives cell death during development and tissue homeostasis from zebrafish to humans. In most cancers, this pathway is inhibitedExpand

Biosynthesis of polyhydroxyalkanoate homopolymers by Pseudomonas putida
Pseudomonas putida KT2442 has been a well-studied producer of medium-chain-length (mcl) polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) copolymers containing C6 ~ C14 monomer units. A mutant was constructed from P.Expand

Microbial production of R-3-hydroxybutyric acid by recombinant E. coli harboring genes of phbA, phbB, and tesB
Production of R-3-hydroxybutyric acid (3HB) was observed when genes of β-ketothiolase (PhbA), acetoacetyl CoA reductase (PhbB), and thioesterase II (TesB) were jointly expressed in Escherichia coli.Expand

Unraveling a Three-Step Spatiotemporal Mechanism of Triggering of Receptor-Induced Nipah Virus Fusion and Cell Entry
Membrane fusion is essential for entry of the biomedically-important paramyxoviruses into their host cells (viral-cell fusion), and for syncytia formation (cell-cell fusion), often induced byExpand
