    This is big. Fantastic collaboration with Moshe and Yoni on cis-prenyltransferase continues with another great outcome. Paper now published in Sci. Adv. reveals how these enzymes synthesize long products via small active site!

    Happy to help Klara and her team (KH lab) with the work deciphering evolution of early protein-RNA interaction. Paper supported by Terka and The Boss is now in high-ranking Mol. Biol. Evol. journal!

  • 2022/02/09:

    Marok's work on FPOP combined with top-down for transcription factor::dsDNA interaction is now published in Anal. Chem.! Very nice complement to our previus HDX and X-linking studies, now with residue level resolution.

  • 2021/12/08:

    Our team is growing! Welcome Maartje and Michael! We now have two real experts to expand MS into a second dimension and shoot the protein ions with all electron and laser guns we have. Top-down era of our lab is now making a huge leap forward.

  • 2021/12/06:

    Happy news! We received funding from the Czech Science Foundation to expand structural proteomics tools by developing new reagents, enhancing the existing ones and diving into transmembrane proteins.

  • 2021/12/01:

    Great success of Jarin and Fiji who have their protein fast-fluoralkylation tricks now published in prestigious  J Am Chem Soc. Also thanks for fruitful collaboration - Beier group and CF Plus Chemicals.
