TF (tissue factor) is a transmembrane cofactor that initiates blood coagulation in mammals by binding Factor VIIa to activate Factors X and IX. The cofactor can reside in a cryptic configuration on primary cells and de-encryption may involve a redox...

Membrane-intrinsic enzymes are embedded in lipids, yet how such enzymes interrogate lipid substrates remains a largely unexplored fundamental question. The outer membrane phospholipid:lipid A palmitoyltransferase PagP combats host immune defenses during infection and selects a palmitate chain using its beta-barrel...

We identified a thiol-reactive compound, dibromobimane (dBBn), that was a potent stimulator (8.2-fold) of the ATPase activity of Cys-less P-glycoprotein. We then used this compound together with cysteine-scanning mutagenesis to identify residues in transmembrane segment (TM) 6 and TM12 that...

The structure of the pore is critical to understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying selective permeation and voltage-dependent gating of channels formed by the connexin gene family. Here, we describe a portion of the pore structure of unapposed hemichannels formed by...

ArsA ATPase activity is allosterically activated by salts of the semimetal arsenic or antimony. Activation is associated with the presence of three cysteine residues in ArsA: Cys113, Cys172, and Cys422. To determine the distance between cysteine residues, wild type ArsA...
