  1. pmc Direct membrane binding by bacterial actin MreB
    Jeanne Salje
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK
    Mol Cell 43:478-87. 2011
    ..This, the first example of a membrane-binding actin filament, prompts a fundamental rethink of the structure and dynamics of MreB filaments within cells...
  2. pmc Structure of a bacterial dynamin-like protein lipid tube provides a mechanism for assembly and membrane curving
    Harry H Low
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 0QH, UK
    Cell 139:1342-52. 2009
    ..Observed structural similarities with rat dynamin 1 suggest that our results have broad implication for other dynamin family members...
  3. ncbi request reprint Crystal structure of the SMC head domain: an ABC ATPase with 900 residues antiparallel coiled-coil inserted
    J Lowe
    Laboratory of Molecular Biology, MRC, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 2QH, UK
    J Mol Biol 306:25-35. 2001
    ..Comparison to the structure of the MukB N-terminal domain demonstrates the close relationship between MukB and SMC proteins, and indicates a helix to strand conversion when N and C-terminal parts come together...
  4. ncbi request reprint Conserved sequence motif at the C-terminus of the bacterial cell-division protein FtsA
    J Lowe
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Hills Road, CB2 2QH, Cambridge, UK
    Biochimie 83:117-20. 2001
    ..Here we show that all FtsA proteins contain a conserved 10-13 residue motif at the C-terminal end that may facilitate targeting of downstream septal components...
  5. ncbi request reprint Molecules of the bacterial cytoskeleton
    Jan Lowe
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Hills Road, Cambridge CB2 2QH, United Kingdom
    Annu Rev Biophys Biomol Struct 33:177-98. 2004
    ..Mollicutes seem to have developed special systems for cell shape determination and motility, such as the fibril protein in Spiroplasma...
  6. pmc Molecular mechanism of sequence-directed DNA loading and translocation by FtsK
    Jan Lowe
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Hills Road, Cambridge CB20QH, UK
    Mol Cell 31:498-509. 2008
    ..During translocation, FtsK fails to recognize an inverted KOPS sequence. Therefore, we propose that KOPS act solely as a loading site for FtsK, resulting in a unidirectionally oriented hexameric motor upon DNA...
