Marion Sewer, a national and international leader in the field of steroid hormone biosynthesis, passed away on Jan. 28, 2016, at the age of 43. Sewer was deputy chair of the ASBMB's minority affairs committee and co-organizer of a symposium at the forthcoming 2016 ASBMB Annual Meeting.
On our cover, chief science correspondent Raj Mukhopadyhay looks at fresh developments in the loosely defined field of quantum biology, including attempts to design relevant experiments and develop models that can demonstrate quantum effects in biological processes. She hears from researchers who have observed quantum effects – in enzyme catalysis, photosynthesis, and the sensing of magnetic fields by migratory birds – but remain careful about embracing quantum biology as a fully-fledged niche.
February 5, 2016 — In this thematic minireview series, the JBC presents six exciting articles on low complexity or intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). This collection of reviews discusses biophysical approaches for studying IDPs, illuminates their importance to critical functions like cell cycle control, transcription and translation and their regulation via cellular input signals.

December 16, 2015 — The last decade has seen enormous progress in the exploration and understanding of the behavior of molecules in their natural cellular environments at increasingly high spatial and temporal resolution. Advances in microscopy, development of new fluorescent reagents, and genetic editing have enabled quantitative analysis of protein interactions, intracellular trafficking, metabolic changes, and signaling. Modern biochemistry now faces new and exciting challenges. This Thematic Series summarizes recent studies that illustrate some first steps towards successfully answering these modern biochemical questions.
