Lab alum Kaavya smashing it in GPCR world

Posted on

This week’s edition of Science magazine features an article on which Kaavya Krishna Kumar – PhD student with Dave Gell when he was here in our unit – is first-equal author. The paper describes the cryoEM structure of the glucagon receptor bound to a glucagon-like ligand and helps understand the mechanism by which the binding […]

New lab paper hits the streets

Posted on

Well, this paper took quite some time to come to fruition. Biswa from Melbourne worked hard to extract a structure from some less than friendly NMR data on a protein that was gifted to us by Wayne Patrick (formerly in Otago, now in Victoria University Wellington). I’m not sure it’s a gift I’d wish on […]

In exciting news, we have had our paper “The stoichiometry and interactome of the Nucleosome Remodelling and Deacetylase (NuRD) complex are conserved across multiple cell lines” accepted in FEBS J [epub here]. It’s particularly exciting both because it’s Mehdi’s first first-author paper from his PhD and it is also Jason’s first last- and corresponding-author paper. […]

Nina Ripin, who spent some months in the lab as a Masters’ student in 2011, is the lead author on a nice study focused on the RNA-binding properties of HuR in the latest PNAS. She has combined NMR and X-ray crystallography while working in Fred Allain’s lab at ETH in Zurich to characterize the means […]

Marylène has been extra busy…

Posted on

Not only has she been planning a wedding, but she’s been publishing senior author papers too. Here is her paper in J Mol Biol describing the combinatorial design of a nanobody that can recognized structured RNA molecules: Marylène’s paper! A nice piece of work – well done Marylène – it’s tough work getting them nailed down in […]
