Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics
Congratulations to Michael Burns and Frank Chao for being chosen as the 2013 Beatrice Z. Milne and Theodore Brandenburg Award!
Congratulations to Dr. Burckhard Seelig, Frank Chao and Dr. Gianluigi Veglia for their publication in Nature Chemical Biology entitled "Structure and dynamics of a primordial catalytic fold generated by in vitro evolution".
Congratulations to Dr. Lipscomb and his research group who worked with that of Dr. Richard Bruick of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center to show that the protein FBXL5 contains the first hemerythrin-type domain and dinuclear iron cluster to be observed in a mammalian cell. The cluster-containing domain of FBXL5 senses iron and oxygen and plays a key regulatory role in the iron homoeostasis of the cell. The publication was recently recognized as the paper of the year in molecular biophysics in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. (JBC (2012) 287, 7357-65)
