JBC Thematic Minireview Series - Metals in Biology 2014
September 2, 2014 — This thematic series addresses the issue of why certain metals are used by particular enzymes, as well as the consequences of using the wrong metal. The first Minireview in the series deals with general aspects of metal specificity, and the next two deal with specific cases, the enzyme ribonucleotide reductase and iron/manganese homeostasis in the bacterium Bacillus subtilis. The fourth discusses with metal selection in oxidative stress, and the final organelles (lysomes) as mediators of metal homeostasis.

JBC Thematic Review Series: Phospholipase D and Cancer
Phospholipase D signaling plays a critical role in cell growth and
proliferation, vesicular trafficking, secretion and endocytosis. Cancer
invasion and metastasis rely heavily on cellular motility, and, as such,
they have put PLD at center stage in cancer research, as outlined in
this Journal of Biological Chemistry minireview series organized by
Julian Gomez-Cambronero and George M. Carman.
