New preprint (KKT4 structure)

We posted our 6th preprint in bioRxiv. Our very first graduate student Patryk Ludzia performed extensive analyses on the microtubule-binding kinetochore protein KKT4 using X-ray crystallography (three crystal structures), NMR spectroscopy, crosslinking mass spectrometry, and so on. KKT4 is still the only known microtubule-binding kinetochore protein in Trypanosoma brucei and his analyses have provided various important insights into how KKT4 works and is regulated. Congratulations Patryk!
