Post-translational modification of proteins with ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins (Ubls) is central to the regulation of eukaryotic cellular processes. Our ability to study the effects of ubiquitylation, however, is limited by the difficulty to prepare homogenously modified proteins in vitro and by the impossibility to selectively ... READ MORE


Ten-eleven-translocation (TET) methyl cytosine dioxygenases play a key role in epigenetics by oxidizing the epigenetic marker 5-methyl cytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethyl cytosine (5hmC), 5-formyl cytosine (5fC), and 5-carboxy cytosine (5cC). Although much of the metabolism of 5mC has been studied closely, certain aspects—such as ... READ MORE


Protein–water interactions have widespread effects on protein structure and dynamics. As such, the function of many biomacromolecules can be directly related to the presence and exchange of water molecules. While the presence of structural water sites can be easily detected by X-ray crystallography, the dynamics within functional ... READ MORE
