Bound-state diffusion due to binding to flexible polymers in a selective biofilter

We demonstrate that bound mobility via tethered diffusion can be engineered into a synthetic gel using protein fragments derived from the nuclear pore complex.

We develop a model motivated by features of the nuclear pore complex (NPC) which provides a framework to control binding-induced selective transport in bipolymeric materials.

In-Cell NMR within Budding Yeast Reveals Cytoplasmic Masking of Hydrophobic Residues of FG Repeats

April 19, 2019

In-cell NMR in S. cerevisiae is a novel way of looking at disordered proteins in a crowded cellular environment. The methodology has been developed here, which could be broadly applicable to other protein systems. In an example, the non-specific interactions of the FG Nup construct, FSFG-K, with the cytoplasm is similar to previously found bacterial interactions using NMR relaxation techniques. This work was recently published in Biophysical Journal.

Allison Whited joined Hough lab

Aug. 1, 2017

We would like to welcome Allison Whited to the Hough lab! Allison is a new postdoc in our group beginning August 2017. She comes to us most recently from Oak Ridge National Lab where she has been a postdoc for the last two years studying the structure of lipid membranes...
