New lab paper accepted FEBS J

Posted on

Mario’s long journey to publish the carefully methodical work he and others have done on the inter-subunit interaction network within the NuRD complex has finally come to fruition as his paper is now accepted in FEBS J. We’re quite fond of the paper because it makes a statement about the uncertain nature of pulldown experiments […]

Morgan’s latest paper from chilly Dundee

Posted on

Morgan Gadd, ex-PhD student of Jacqui’s, has just published a paper from his postdoc time with Alessio Cuilli – a nice piece of work where they examine one of their bi-functional bromodomain inhibitors and show that it forms a tight ternary complex with their small molecule and the other protein that it brings along with […]

Dorothy’s paper accepted at NAR

Posted on

Dorothy has had a pretty painless first foray into the world of publishing papers with her paper on the RNA-binding properties of the transcription factor YY1 being accepted at Nucleic Acids Research. We were very pleased with the outcome given that we weren’t trumpeting sequence-specific binding with high affinity, but rather low specificity and moderate […]

Our latest CHD4 work makes it into JBC

Posted on

Well, this one wasn’t *quite* as straightforward as the Protein Science paper I mentioned recently, but in the end the reviewers *did* actually improve the paper I think. You can read about the efforts of Jason (L), Sarah, Ana, Hinnerk, Mario, Mattias and Nick – with able assistance from Daniel in Canberra and Ben Parker […]

Our first EM data published in Protein Science

Posted on

Whew! It was quite a roller coaster ride to this paper. After seeing an abstract by John Schwabe’s group in Leicester that covered work very similar to what we’ve been hammering away at for a while, we scrambled to get a paper prepared and submitted. During the process, I contacted a number of journals and […]

Ana’s CHD4 paper comes out

Posted on

Ana’s paper describing the structure of a slightly cryptic domain from CHD4 has come out in JBC. Check out the paper here or check out the structure here. As you can see here, it looks sort of like an HMG-box domain (CHD4 is in red – HMG-box domains are in grey). HMG-box domains bind to […]
