August 2016:  Jakob Fuhrmann’s paper was published in the August issue of Cell Chemical Biology. This paper describes the development of a suite of activity based probes targeting the arginine phosphatase YwlE. Notably, these probes were used to show that controlled by the redox status of the cell,wherein redox YwlE activity is stress inactivates YwlE, via the formation of a disulfide bond, leading to increased activity of the cognate protein arginine kinase and activation of the bacterial stress response.
