    Structural model for a pentameric assembly of transmembrane segments of the HIV-1 VpuproteinStructural model for a pentameric assembly of transmembrane segments of the HIV-1 Vpu protein, based on solid-state NMR and photochemical crosslinking data.Structural model for a pentameric assembly of transmembrane segments of the HIV-1 VpuproteinEnlarge
    Electron microscope images of amyloid fibrilsElectron microscope images of amyloid fibrils formed by the 40-residue beta-amyloid peptide are depicted, with either "twisted" or "striated ribbon" morphologies (left).  Corresponding molecular structural models, based on data from solid-state NMR and electron microscopy are shown (right).Electron microscope images of amyloid fibrilsEnlarge
    Custom-built apparatus for solid state NMR at low temperatures with dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP)A custom-built apparatus for solid-state NMR at low temperatures with dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is depicted (left).  A carbon-13 NMR spectrum of an isotopically labeled peptide in frozen solution at 25 K, with and without signal enhancement from DNP is shown (right).Custom-built apparatus for solid state NMR at low temperatures with dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP)Enlarge
