Summary of "The Structural Biology of the Dynamin-Related Proteins: New Insights into a Diverse, Multi-Talented Family."

Dynamin-related proteins are multidomain, mechanochemical GTPases that self-assemble and orchestrate a wide array of cellular processes. Over the past decade, structural insights from X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy have reshaped our mechanistic understanding of these proteins. Here we provide a historical perspective on these advances that highlights the structural attributes of different dynamin family members and explores how these characteristics affect GTP hydrolysis, conformational coupling, and oligomerization. We also discuss a number of lingering challenges remaining in the field that suggest future directions of study. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
