Front Cover of the DESY Photon Science Report 2012 by post doc Henning Tidow

Post doc Henning Tidow's picture of calcium pump/calmodulin complex crystals has been selected as the front cover picture for this year's Photon Science Report of DESY. Furthermore, Henning Tidow has contributed with a Research Highlight article on the "Turbo swich of calcium pump in biological cells" (page 38-39).

The front cover picture shows:
Protein crystals containing a calcium pump/calmodulin complex. The structure of this complex has been solved by X-ray crystallography and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Using an interdisciplinary approach, this structure together with further in vitro and in vivo characterisation and mathematical modelling led to the identification of a bimodular regulation mechanism of the calcium pump, which contains a previously unknown “turbo gear”. More information about this measurement can be found in the contribution ‘Turbo switch of calcium pump in biological cells’ on page 38.
