JBEI contributes to study that reveals how oxygen-deprived protein loosely binds to a mineral

Berkeley Lab scientists have discovered the details of an unconventional coupling between a bacterial protein and a mineral that allows the bacterium to breathe when oxygen is not available.

In this study, chemical snapshots produced by the X-ray footprinting technique were subsequently analyzed using a technique known as mass spectrometry at the Joint BioEnergy Institute.
