The binding of Maize DHN1 to Lipid Vesicles. Gain of Structure and Lipid Specificity1
TLDR
It is shown that maize (Zea mays) DHN DHN1 can bind to lipid vesicles that contain acidic phospholipids, and that the association ofDHN1 with vesicle results in an apparent increase of α-helicity of the protein.

TLDR
Recent progress with the X-ray crystal structure determination of a variety of bacterial and eukaryotic ABC transporters has helped to advance the understanding of the ATP hydrolysis-driven transport mechanism but has also illustrated the large structural and functional diversity within the family.
The K-Segment of Maize DHN1 Mediates Binding to Anionic Phospholipid Vesicles and Concomitant Structural Changes1[W][OA]
TLDR
Lipop vesicle-binding assays revealed that the K-segment is required for binding to anionic phospholipid vesicles, and adoption of α-helicity of the K, a structural element known to interact with membranes and proteins, accounts for most of the conformational change of DHNs.
An Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) Membrane Complex Composed of SPFH1 and SPFH2 Mediates the ER-associated Degradation of Inositol 1,4,5-Trisphosphate Receptors*
TLDR
This work reports that the ER membrane protein SPFH1 and its homolog SPFH2 form a heteromeric ∼2 MDa complex that binds to IP3R tetramers immediately after their activation and is required for their processing.
Structure of dimeric mitochondrial ATP synthase: novel F0 bridging features and the structural basis of mitochondrial cristae biogenesis.
TLDR
The structure of the dimeric F1F0-ATP synthase complex isolated from bovine heart mitochondria by transmission electron microscopy has an overall conic appearance that is consistent with the proposed role of theDimeric enzyme in mitochondrial cristae biogenesis.
Structure of the Yeast Vacuolar ATPase*
TLDR
The resulting atomic model of the yeast V-ATPase serves as a framework to help understand the role the peripheral stalk subunits are playing in the regulation of the ATP hydrolysis driven proton pumping activity of the vacuolar ATPase.
Structure of the Vacuolar ATPase by Electron Microscopy*
TLDR
The structure of the vacuolar ATPase from bovine brain clathrin-coated vesicles has been determined by electron microscopy of negatively stained, detergent-solubilized enzyme molecules, confirming their common origin.
Mgm101 Is a Rad52-related Protein Required for Mitochondrial DNA Recombination*
TLDR
It is shown that the yeast mitochondrial nucleoid protein, Mgm101, is related to the Rad52-type recombination proteins that are widespread in organisms from bacteriophage to humans.
