Two different conformations, closed and open forms, of the E. coli poly-α-l-glutamate synthetase protein RimK were determined in complex with the ATP analogue AMP-PNP by X-ray crystallography at 2.05 Å resolution. The structure of the open form of RimK is unique and differs substantially from the structures of its homologues.

The crystallization and structural analysis of the various players in the ataRT toxin–antitoxin module from enteropathogenic Escherichia coli are reported: the toxin AtaT, the intrinsically disordered antitoxin AtaR and its complex with a 22 bp fragment of the operator DNA.

The gene encoding a novel bacterial class V dye-decolourizing peroxidase (DyP) from the extremely radiation-resistant and desiccation-resistant bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans was cloned and optimum conditions for high-yield expression were identified. The optimized crystals diffracted to 2.2 Å resolution and the initial characterization and crystallographic analysis is promising
