Approaches to single-molecule studies of metalloprotein electron transfer using scanning probe-based techniques
RecQ and Fe–S helicases have unique roles in DNA metabolism dictated by their unwinding directionality, substrate specificity, and protein interactions
Metabolic and molecular changes associated with the increased skeletal muscle insulin action 24–48 h after exercise in young and old humans
The importance of the photosynthetic Gibbs effect in the elucidation of the Calvin–Benson–Bassham cycle
Chitinase-like proteins as regulators of innate immunity and tissue repair: helpful lessons for asthma?
Co-translational control of protein complex formation: a fundamental pathway of cellular organization?
In this issue of Biochemical Society Transactions, Elliott and Jones review some of the techniques used to prepare, measure and analyse the electron transfer properties of metalloproteins, concentrating on scanning tunnelling microscopy-based techniques and advances in attachment of proteins to electrodes. The cover image, taken from Figure 2 in the review, shows the direct attachment of a protein (cytochrome b562) to gold substrate through an engineered cysteine residue.
