In this paper the crystal structures of MakA, MakB and MakE are characterized. They are proteins that are secreted via the bacterial flagellum. Together they form a tripartite toxin that lyses erythrocytes and is cytotoxic to cultured human cells. The work was lead by group Karina Persson.
We have a new publication out in Nature communications describing the cryo-EM structure of the 2-protofilament fiber of human transthyretin. The fibers we purified from vitreous body material collected by vitrectomy from the eye of a Swedish carrier of the ATTR Val30Met variant. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-021-27481-4
The 4th of Nov, 2021 at 10:00 in “Glasburen” will Melanie Oelker defend her thesis: “Disarming Bacteria: A structure-based approach to design an anti-virulence drug against Listeria monocytogenes”. Faculty opponent is Prof. Tiziano Tuccinardi, University of Pisa, Italy.
We are looking for a motivated research student with a strong interest in structure biology, biophysics and biochemistry. Job descriptions and general specifications of the PhD position are available on the following recruitment website: Application deadline is 10th Dec 2020 Best Regards, Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson
Krypotou, E., Scortti, M., Grundström, C., Oelker, M., Luisi, B.F., Sauer-Eriksson, A.E. & Vázquez-Boland, J. Control of bacterial virulence through the peptide signature of the habitat. (2019) Cell Reports, 26, 1815-1827. We identify a major control mechanism of Listeria virulence based on antagonistic regulation by environmental peptides.Activity levels of the virulence regulator PrfA depend on […]
