    Maurici B Roig
    Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3QU, United Kingdom
    FEBS Lett 588:3692-702. 2014
    ..Scc3 turns over in G2/M while maintaining cohesin's association with chromosomes and it promotes de-acetylation of Smc3 upon Scc1 cleavage. ..

    Thierry Izoré
    MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Structural Studies Division, Francis Crick Avenue, Cambridge CB2 0QH, United Kingdom
    FEBS Lett 588:776-82. 2014
    ..6 Å. Crenactin filaments imaged by electron microscopy showed polymers with very similar helical parameters...
  5. 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...
