Latest Protein folding Stories
Prions, the causal agents of Mad Cow and other diseases, are very unique infectious particles.
José Onuchic has become an expert at connecting the dots, but finding connections merely implied by the dots … well, that’s quite a trick.
Insight may help the development of methods to treat diseases at the nanoscale
In a new study, a team of UK researchers have reportedly found a way to prevent brain cell death in mice -- a discovery which could ultimately lead to improved treatments for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurodegenerative ailments in humans.
Protein design is technique that is increasingly valuable to a variety of fields, from biochemistry to therapeutics to materials engineering.
An international team of researchers has reported a new understanding of a little-known process that happens in virtually every cell of our bodies.
A new technique for analyzing brain images offers the possibility of using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to predict the rate of progression and physical path of many degenerative brain diseases.
Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in Germany have developed a new method of observing individual proteins.
Proteins are the molecular building blocks and machinery of cells and involved in practically all biological processes.
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute have identified a single prion protein that causes neuronal death similar to that seen in “mad cow” disease, but is at least 10 times more lethal than larger prion species.
