IMP scientists solve first plant proteasome structure with supermarket spinach

What do you do when your preferred model organism lets you down? You innovate! Scientists at the IMP have solved the first cryo-Electron Microscopy structure of a plant proteasome using spinach from a local supermarket instead of cultured Arabidopsis – a yielding solution. The study, led by an undergraduate student, is now published in the journal Plant Communications.
