Visualising sperm binding to the egg surface in 3D

Scientists from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and the ESRF have taken the first 3D snapshots of a sperm protein attached to a complementary egg coat protein at the beginning of fertilisation. The study reveals a common egg protein architecture that is involved in...

Velocity fluctuations during particle sedimentation probed by multispeckle XPCS

Settling of suspensions under the influence of gravity is an everyday experience, commonly observed in a coffee cup or a beverage bottle. It is widely exploited in industrial purification and separation processes as well as being the origin of geological formations...

RIXS reveals signatures of propagating charge density wave excitations in cuprates

The recent observation of a charge density wave (CDW) in high-Tc superconductors has raised the question of how it affects charge and lattice dynamics. In this study, using high-resolution resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS), the interference between phonons...

Iodide as a universal tool for solving new structures of membrane proteins

A simple protocol of soaking the crystal of a membrane protein in a solution of iodide followed by freezing led to the incorporation of sufficient iodide ions to solve its structure by iodine-SAD. The general utility of this technique for novel structures has been demonstrat...
