The functions of Reelin in membrane trafficking and cytoskeletal dynamics: implications for neuronal migration, polarization and differentiation
The helicase, DDX3X, interacts with poly(A)-binding protein 1 (PABP1) and caprin-1 at the leading edge of migrating fibroblasts and is required for efficient cell spreading
Intrinsic disorder in the partitioning protein KorB persists after co-operative complex formation with operator DNA and KorA
MinD directly interacting with FtsZ at the H10 helix suggests a model for robust activation of MinC to destabilize FtsZ polymers
Central catalytic domain of BRAP (RNF52) recognizes the types of ubiquitin chains and utilizes oligo-ubiquitin for ubiquitylation
Multiple protein sequence alignment of the E3 ubiquitin ligase RNF52 from the yeasts (Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Saccharomyces cerevisiae), dimorphic fungus (Candida albicans), thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana), roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans), fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), zebrafish (Danio rerio), African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis), chicken (Gallus gallus), American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis), human, and mouse (Mus musclus). In this issue of the Biochemical Journal, Shoji et al. report on the role of BRAP, the human form of RNF52, in the oligomeric ubiquitylation process; for details see pages 3207–3226.
