Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Cellular fusion: Protein X-ray insights

X-ray crystallography reveals that two closely related proteins, the HAP2 protein from the single-celled alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and the fusion protein from dengue virus are essential for fusion with a cell membrane and thus both sexual reproduction and viral invasion of a host cell. The proteins probably emerged very early in the history of life on Earth.

The Ghent Altarpiece was a family affair painted around 1432 by Flemish/Early Netherlandish artist Jan van Eyck and according to art historians probably his brother Hubert. Now, chemical imaging based on element-specific X-ray analysis of a large area of the work has revealed the original paint layers and assisted in cleanup and conservation.

The first dynamic contact strain measurement of a ball bearing using stroboscopic energy dispersive X-ray diffraction has been performed, examining the outer raceway of a test bearing.

A collaboration between the A*STAR Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA is working towards a versatile, directional X-ray source that exploits the properties of the "two-dimensional" carbon material known as graphene and could be built as a bench-top or even handheld device for a wide range of applications.
