In addition, an supplemental "abstracts issue" is published, containing abstracts of presentations at the Biophysical Society meeting. The editor-in-chief is Edward Egelman.
Cell growth protein Ras forms a 'pair' on the cell membrane
German biophysicists at Ruhr-Universitaet-Bochum in collaboration with the MPI Dortmund have for the first time measured the orientation of the Ras protein bound to the cell membrane.
Biophysics: Order in chaos
The process of skeletal muscle contraction is based around protein filaments sliding inside sarcomeres the structural units of muscle fiber. Inside each sarcomere is a set of filament motors, which appear in different ...
Backing out of the nanotunnel: New method for nucleic acid analysis
Nanopores provide a versatile tool for probing molecular structures. A new German study shows that one can obtain more detailed information about the dynamic behavior of nucleic acids during passage through nanopores by directing ...
