Crystal structures of Thermotoga maritima magnesium transporter CorA, reported in 2006, revealed its homo-pentameric constructions. However, the structure of the highly conserved extracellular interhelical loops remains unsolved, due to its high flexibility. We have explored the configurations of the loops...

The ferritin IRE, a highly conserved (96-99% in vertebrates) mRNA translation regulatory element in animal mRNA, was studied by molecular modeling (using MC-SYM and DOCKING) and by NMR spectroscopy. Cobalt(III) hexammine was used to model hydrated Mg2+. IRE isoforms in...

Intracellular injection of hexamminecobaltic chloride into a neurone causes characteristic changes to the structure of its mitochondria. This provides a simple technique to label neuronal profiles for examination of their ultrastructure. Synaptic structures are not affected by hexamminecobaltic ions.
