We have a bumper four covers for this month’s issue of Metallomics!
On the outside front cover comes an informative image from Rachel U. Hutcheson and Joan B. Broderick, Montana State University, and their minireview on radical SAM enzymes in methylation and methylthiolation. They present recent highlights in the understanding of radical SAM enzymes.
Radical SAM enzymes in methylation and methylthiolation
Rachel U. Hutcheson and Joan B. Broderick
Metallomics, 2012, 4, 1149-1154
On the inside front cover we have a beautiful image from Berthold F. Matzanke and Carl J. Carrano, University of Lubeck and San Diego State University, respectively, who have been looking at iron transport and storage in marine plant-like organisms.
Iron transport and storage in the coccolithophore: Emiliania huxleyi
Andrej Hartnett, Lars H. Böttger, Berthold F. Matzanke and Carl J. Carrano
Metallomics, 2012, 4, 1160-1166
On the inside back cover we showcase work by Karin Broberg in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at Lund University, Sweden and colleagues at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm and the Department of Risk Benefit Assessment, Uppsala, Sweden, and the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Dhaka, Bangladesh. They have been looking at environmental arsenic exposure and DNA methylation of the tumour suppressor gene p16 and the DNA repair gene MLH1.
