The archaeal motility structure (flagellum /archaellum) During an initial structural and proteomic survey of the model archaeal microbe Methanospirillum hungatei we identified proteins comprising the attached cellular flagellum. Little was previously known about these archaeal appendages and we therefore characterized them and obtained the first atomic-level structure of a model archaeal flagellum. The findings reveal […]

Nicole Poweleit, recent PhD with Dr. Robert Gunsalus accepted postition at the University of California, San Francisco, in the Department of Medicine. She will join Oren Rosenberg‘s lab in the Division of Infectious Diseases, working with microbial pathgenesis.
A day in the life of Chlamydomonas The unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii excels at acclimating to a changing environment. We analyzed expression patterns of its three genomes in cells grown under light-dark cycles. Nearly 85% of transcribed genes show differential expression, with different sets of transcripts being up-regulated over the course of the day […]
Microbes engineered to display heterologous proteins could be useful biotechnological tools for protein engineering, lignocellulose degradation, biocatalysis, bioremediation and biosensing. Bacillus subtilis is a promising host to display proteins, as this model Gram-positive bacterium is genetically tractable and already used industrially to produce enzymes. The Clubb group developed a unique two-step procedure that enables the […]
Duyoung Min, Postdoc in the Bowie lab received the 2018 Chancellor’s Award for Postdoctoral Research. Duyoung developed methods that allowed him to investigate the folding of the most complex proteins ever examined experimentally.
James Bowie was named Fellow of the Biophysical Society and he delivered the Choh Hao Li Memorial Lecture at Academia Sinica. Other awards: 2018 Choh Hao Li Memorial Lecture, Academia Sinica 2018 UCLA Postdoctoral Society Postdoc Mentoring Award Finalist 2017 Anatrace Award for Membrane Proteins, Biophysical Society
UCLA Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Award, the Burroughs-Wellcome Career Award at the Scientific Interface, has been awarded to Calin Plesa, one of 6 top postdocs to receive of this award. The award is $500,000 to begin his career.
Graduating PhD student Yuxi Liu from the Yeates lab has been awarded the Biochemistry PhD Dissertation Award from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for her outstanding research accomplishments. Dr. Liu has pioneered the development of designed protein scaffolds that make it possible to image small proteins by cryo-EM. Proteins smaller than about 50 kDa […]
Kristen Holbrook, postdoctoral researcher in Sabeeha Merchant’s group, has recently accepted a position as a Scientist in the Toxicology group at Amgen. Her job will focus on the development and implantation of toxicology strategy for early lead discovery through clinical targets. In addition, she will work with a multidisciplinary team to design and manage a […]
