Molecular animations play an increasing role in scientific visualisation and science communication. They engage viewers through non-fictional, documentary type storytelling and aim at advancing the audience. Every scene of a molecular animation is to be designed to secure clarity. To achieve this, knowledge on design principles from various design...

The homing endonuclease PI‐SceI from Saccharo myces cerevisiae consists of two domains. The protein splicing domain I catalyzes the excision of the mature endonuclease (intein) from a precursor protein and the religation of the flanking amino acid sequences (exteins) to a functional protein. Furthermore, domain I is involved in binding and recognit...

The final step in the biosynthesis of nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide, a major coenzyme in cellular redox reactions and involved in intracellular signaling, is catalyzed by the enzyme nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase (NMNAT). The X-ray structure of human NMNAT in complex with nicotinamide mononucleotide was solved by the single-wav...

Nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase catalyses the final step in the synthesis of nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NAD(+)) by transferring the adenylyl moiety of ATP to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) with the release of pyrophosphate. The human enzyme was crystallized in the presence of NAD(+). Crystals grew in the orthorhombic spac...

Binding of cAMP receptor protein (CRP) and CytR mediates both positive and negative control of transcription from Escherichia coli deoP2. Transcription is activated by CRP and repressed by a multi-protein CRP.CytR.CRP complex. The latter is stabilized by cooperative interactions between CRP and CytR. Similar interactions at the other transcriptiona...
