This week in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry we are bringing you: 1 Emerging Area review, 4 Communications and 18 articles full of interesting chemistry. Visit the issue and get it all!
On the front cover:
Andreea R. Schmitzer and coworkers present the first example of a benzimidazolium-based artificial transmembrane chloride transporter and a synthetic calcium ionophore that can regulate intracellular calcium concentrations in bacteria.
Benzimidazolium-based synthetic chloride and calcium transporters in bacterial membranes
Claude-Rosny Elie, Audrey Hébert, Mathieu Charbonneau, Adam Haiun and Andreea R. Schmitzer
On the inside cover:
Noriho Kamiya and colleagues at Kyushu University assess how the spatial arrangement of the avidin–biotin interaction between protein building blocks affects the formation of a protein supramolecular complex.
Protein supramolecular complex formation by site-specific avidin–biotin interactions
Yutaro Mori, Rie Wakabayashi, Masahiro Goto and Noriho Kamiya
