Congratulations to Binyong Liang for his paper accepted in Nature Structure and Molecular Biology

Congratulations to Binyong whose “Perspective” on NMR of membrane proteins was accepted last week by Nature Structure and Molecular Biology.

Tamm Lab at the Tom Tom Festival

Our project “Biophysics and biochemistry of membrane proteins on the surface of Pseudomonas aeruginosa” was presented at Tom Tom Festival on April 13th, 2016 at the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. Pictured are members of the Tamm Lab,  Dr. Binyong Liang, Iga Kucharska and Nicholas Ursini.

Congratulations to Iga Kucharska, et al for their publication in Journal of Biomolecular NMR.

Jinwoo Lee & Sonia Gregory Published in PLoS One

Congratulations to Jinwoo Lee and former student Sonia Gregory McIntosh on the acceptance of their paper which examines the effect of potential pH sensor mutations on the structure of the membrane/micelle bound fusion loop of Ebola virus GP2. The Roles of Histidines and Charged Residues as Potential Triggers of a Conformational Change in the Fusion […]

Congratulations Iga Kucharska, et al for Publications this year!

Iga Kucharska, Patrick Seelheim, Thomas Edrington and Binyong Liang, along with Lukas Tamm, have recently had their paper published in Structure’s Volume 23, Issue 12, OprG Harnesses the Dynamics of its Extracellular Loops to Transport Small Amino Acids across the Outer Membrane of Pseudomonas aeruginosa .  This follows Iga’s first paper of the year,  Optimizing […]

Congratulations Volker Kiessling, Alex Kreutzberger and Lukas Tamm – Latest paper in July’s Biophysical Journal

High Cholesterol Obviates a Prolonged Hemifusion Intermediate in Fast SNARE-Mediated Membrane Fusion. Kreutzberger AJ, Kiessling V, Tamm LK. Biophys J. 2015 Jul 21;109(2):319-29. doi: 10.1016/j.bpj.2015.06.022. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26200867) Abstract Cholesterol is essential for exocytosis in secretory cells, but the exact molecular mechanism by which it facilitates exocytosis is largely unknown. Distinguishing contributions from the lateral organization and […]
