Marc Schureck in the Dunham Lab Publishes Article in PNAS, October 2015

Marc SchureckCongratulations to BCDB graduate student Marc Schureck from the Dunham Lab for his recent PNAS publication entitled, "Defining the mRNA recognition signature of a bacterial toxin protein".

Marc biochemically and structurally characterized the HigB toxin protein that is activated during stress to inhibit translation by cleaving different mRNA transcripts on the ribosome. This facilitates a persistent, antibiotic-tolerant state.
