New developments in small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering studies of biological macromolecules in solution are presented. Small-angle scattering is rapidly becoming a streamline tool in structural molecular biology providing unique information about overall structure and conformational changes...
The few known crystal structures of receptor-binding domains of fimbrial tip adhesins, FimH, PapGII, and F17G, tell us that each of these structures is unique and surprising. Despite little to no sequence identity, common to them all is their variable immunoglobulin (Ig)-fold. Nevertheless, their...
