Inside Cover: Conformational Transitions at an S-Layer Growing Boundary Resolved by Cryo-TEM (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 18/2013)
Self-assembled S-layer proteins forming the outer membrane on bacterial cells are shown; this rendition is based on AFM images of live Lysinibacillus sphaericus bacteria. In their Communication on page 4829 ff., L. R. Comolli et al. used graphene substrates to examine the structure and assembly of the growing S-layer boundary at high resolution by cryo-TEM.
