Elusive Protein Complex Could Hold the Key to Treating Chromosomal Disorders

Dissociation of the FANCM-MHF complex: After X-ray crystallography (XRC), scientists found that tetrahedral and needle-shaped forms of recombinant FANCM-MHF complex contained only MHF without FANCM. Upon biochemical analysis, they found that this was due to the organic solvent used in sample preparation for XRC and exposure to oxidizing conditions. | Image credit: Tatsuya Nishino from Tokyo University of Science
