Just Accepted Manuscript: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY


Check out the latest manuscript from the David Lab and collaborators: S K-edge XAS Studies of the Effect of DNA Binding on the [Fe4S4] Site in EndoIII and MutY, which was recently accepted for publication in JACS. In this work, the iron-sulfur clusters of DNA repair glycosylases Endonuclease III and MutY were examined using S K-edge X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) in order to investigate DNA binding and solvation effects on Fe-S bond covalencies.

  • First X-ray of a single atom May 31, 2023
    Scientists have taken the world's first X-ray SIGNAL (or SIGNATURE) of just one atom. This groundbreaking achievement could revolutionize the way scientists detect the materials.
  • NIRISS instrument on Webb maps an ultra-hot Jupiter's atmosphere May 31, 2023
    There's an intriguing exoplanet out there -- 400 light-years out there -- that is so tantalizing that astronomers have been studying it since its discovery in 2009. One orbit for WASP-18 b around its star that is slightly larger than our Sun takes just 23 hours. There is nothing like it in our Solar System. […]
  • Plants can distinguish when touch starts and stops, study suggests May 31, 2023
    Even without nerves, plants can sense when something touches them and when it lets go, a study has found. In a set of experiments, individual plant cells responded to the touch of a very fine glass rod by sending slow waves of calcium signals to other plant cells, and when that pressure was released, they sent […]
  • Saved from extinction, Southern California's Channel Island Foxes now face new threat to survival May 31, 2023
    Starting in the 1990s, Island Fox populations began to dwindle due to an outbreak of canine distemper and an increase in attacks by golden eagles. Some islands saw their population drop to as low as 15 individuals, but conservation efforts by the Federal government restored numbers by 2017. A new study reveals a worrying decrease […]
  • New catalyst lowers cost for producing environmentally sustainable hydrogen from water May 30, 2023
    A team has developed a new catalyst composed of elements abundant in the Earth. It could make possible the low-cost and energy-efficient production of hydrogen for use in transportation and industrial applications.
