Moving Back to MSB!

Our paper detailing the conserved structural regions of the V3 crown is now available from Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. It introduces 10 new anti-HIV antibody-V3 peptide structures done in our lab and defines 4 distinct regions of the third variable region (V3) loop that retain similar structural features.

Tetraspanin on Flickr
Our 2006 cover artwork is featured on JCB's Flickr photostream. It depicts the EM structure of the mouse uroplakin tetraspanin complex, which forms hexagonal 2D crystals on the bladder surface and is a binding target for bacteria causing urinary tract infections.
