We are developing technology to produce biosensors based on a ligand-binding domain (LBD) that may, in principle, be applied to any target molecule. The power of this method is illustrated in this paper by development of biosensors for digoxin and progesterone.

In this work, we combine the results of protein cross-linking mass spectrometry with iterative structural modelling to determine the molecular architecture of the 10-member Dam1p protein complex in S. cerevisiae. Using this technique, we can model conformational changes resulting from binding with microtubules.
