    Description: Influenza antiviral agents play important roles in modulating disease severity and in controlling pandemics while vaccines are prepared, but the development of resistance to agents like the commonly used neuraminidase inhibitor oseltamivir may limit their future utility. We report here on a new class of specific, mechanism-based anti-influenza drugs that function through the formation of a stabilized covalent intermediate in the influenza neuraminidase enzyme, and we confirm this mode of action with structural and mechanistic studies. These compounds function in cell-based assays and in animal models, with efficacies comparable to that of the neuraminidase inhibitor zanamivir and with broad-spectrum activity against drug-resistant strains in vitro. The similarity of their structure to that of the natural substrate and their mechanism-based design make these attractive antiviral candidates.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Kim, Jin-Hyo -- Resende, Ricardo -- Wennekes, Tom -- Chen, Hong-Ming -- Bance, Nicole -- Buchini, Sabrina -- Watts, Andrew G -- Pilling, Pat -- Streltsov, Victor A -- Petric, Martin -- Liggins, Richard -- Barrett, Susan -- McKimm-Breschkin, Jennifer L -- Niikura, Masahiro -- Withers, Stephen G -- G0600514/Medical Research Council/United Kingdom -- Canadian Institutes of Health Research/Canada -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2013 Apr 5;340(6128):71-5. doi: 10.1126/science.1232552.

    Description: The assembly of 30S ribosomes requires the precise addition of 20 proteins to the 16S ribosomal RNA. How early binding proteins change the ribosomal RNA structure so that later proteins may join the complex is poorly understood. Here we use single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) to observe real-time encounters between Escherichia coli ribosomal protein S4 and the 16S 5' domain RNA at an early stage of 30S assembly. Dynamic initial S4-RNA complexes pass through a stable non-native intermediate before converting to the native complex, showing that non-native structures can offer a low free-energy path to protein-RNA recognition. Three-colour FRET and molecular dynamics simulations reveal how S4 changes the frequency and direction of RNA helix motions, guiding a conformational switch that enforces the hierarchy of protein addition. These protein-guided dynamics offer an alternative explanation for induced fit in RNA-protein complexes.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3968076/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3968076/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Kim, Hajin -- Abeysirigunawarden, Sanjaya C -- Chen, Ke -- Mayerle, Megan -- Ragunathan, Kaushik -- Luthey-Schulten, Zaida -- Ha, Taekjip -- Woodson, Sarah A -- R01 GM060819/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R01 GM065367/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R01 GM60819/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R01 GM65367/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- T32 GM007231/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- Howard Hughes Medical Institute/ -- England -- Nature. 2014 Feb 20;506(7488):334-8. doi: 10.1038/nature13039.

    Description: There is a general need for the engineering of protein-like molecules that organize into geometrically specific superstructures on molecular surfaces, directing further functionalization to create richly textured, multilayered assemblies. Here we describe a computational approach whereby the surface properties and symmetry of a targeted surface define the sequence and superstructure of surface-organizing peptides. Computational design proceeds in a series of steps that encode both surface recognition and favorable intersubunit packing interactions. This procedure is exemplified in the design of peptides that assemble into a tubular structure surrounding single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The geometrically defined, virus-like coating created by these peptides converts the smooth surfaces of SWNTs into highly textured assemblies with long-scale order, capable of directing the assembly of gold nanoparticles into helical arrays along the SWNT axis.〈br /〉〈br /〉〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3264056/" target="_blank"〉〈img src="https://static.pubmed.gov/portal/portal3rc.fcgi/4089621/img/3977009" border="0"〉〈/a〉   〈a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3264056/" target="_blank"〉This paper as free author manuscript - peer-reviewed and accepted for publication〈/a〉〈br /〉〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Grigoryan, Gevorg -- Kim, Yong Ho -- Acharya, Rudresh -- Axelrod, Kevin -- Jain, Rishabh M -- Willis, Lauren -- Drndic, Marija -- Kikkawa, James M -- DeGrado, William F -- 5F32GM084631-02/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- F32 GM084631/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- F32 GM084631-02/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- GM54616/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R37 GM054616/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- R37 GM054616-17/GM/NIGMS NIH HHS/ -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2011 May 27;332(6033):1071-6. doi: 10.1126/science.1198841.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21617073" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉
