JBC Thematic Minireview Series: Cell Biology of G-Protein Signaling

January 20, 2015 — This thematic series is on the topic of cell signaling from a cell biology perspective, with a particular focus on G proteins. Authors discuss biosensors that are being used to monitor G protein signaling events in live cells, the implementation of antibody-based biosensors to dissect endosome signaling by G proteins and their receptors, and the function of a non-receptor, cytoplasmic activator of G protein signaling, called GIV (Girdin). Collectively the advances described in these articles provide a deeper understanding and emerging opportunities for new pharmacology.

JBC Thematic Minireview Series: Radical SAM Enzymes

December 5, 2014 — In this thematic minireview series, the JBC presents six articles on radical SAM enzymes that accomplish wide-ranging chemical transformations. We learn that despite the diversity of the reactions catalyzed, family members share some common structural and mechanistic themes. Still in its infancy, continued explorations promise to be fertile grounds for discoveries that will undoubtedly further broaden our understanding of the catalytic repertoire and deepen our understanding of the chemical strategies used by radical SAM enzymes.
