Congratulations to Titu and Sangbae!
August 15th, 2017
Titu and Sangabae's manuscript investigated the PKCα kinase-substrate interface, and provided insight into the dynamic properties of the kinase-substrate interaction that govern substrate binding and turnover. Their work was published in Journal of Biological Chemistry.
Congratulations to Rabia!
July 5th, 2017
Rabia's manuscript that further characterizes our novel SPASM FRET sensors with regards to the GPCR-G-protein interaction. Her work was published in Nature Scientific Reports.
Congratulations to our collaborator, Dr. Mohan Balasubramanian!
June 27th, 2017
Dr. Balasubramanian's manuscript investigated the role of turnover of actin and myosin II in its contraction and was recently published in the Journal of Cell Biology.
Congratulations to Ansley and Manbir!
June 23rd, 2017
Ansley and Manbir's paper Structural Elements in the Gαs and Gαq C Termini That Mediate Selective G Protein-coupled Receptor (GPCR) Signaling has been chosen to represent a special virtual issue on structural biology that highlights the most exciting advances made in structural biology over the past three years. Congratulations!
