Copper as a biological yin-yang element: Structural dynamics, protein -protein interactions and transfer mechanisms of copper transport proteins
Copper (Cu) can be considered as a biological yin-yang element, because it is essential but toxic at the same time. To manage this paradox, cells have evolved complex molecular Cu transport pathways, in which Cu chaperones ...
Triterpene biosynthesis in plants: Oxidosqualene cyclization in Arabidopsis thaliana
The enzymatic conversion of oxidosqualene to cyclic triterpenes represents the key step in the biosynthesis of more than 20,000 triterpenoids. These compounds are widely distributed in nature among plants, animals, fungi, ...
