Latest Protein structure Stories
Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have invented a "nanosponge" capable of safely removing a broad class of dangerous toxins from the bloodstream – including toxins produced by MRSA, E. coli, poisonous snakes and bees.
The Protein Society, the leading international society devoted to furthering research and development in protein science, announces the winners of its 2013 Awards.
Physicists of the University of Vienna together with researchers from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna developed nano-machines which recreate principal activities of proteins.
By combining low temperatures and NMR spectroscopy, the scientists visualized seven intermediate forms of the CylR2 protein while cooling it down from 25°C to -16°C.
Using an innovative approach, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have determined the structure of Ltn1, a recently discovered “quality-control” protein that is found in the cells of all plants, fungi and animals.
By following a set of principles, scientists can produce protein molecules that previously did not exist in nature.
Over the last decade, there has been a rapid growth in "citizen science" projects, allowing more and more science enthusiasts, hobbyists, students and other ordinary people to participate in the excitement of real-world scientific research and help solve serious scientific mysteries.
Proteins are able to self-assemble into a wide range of highly ordered structures that feature a diverse array of properties.
The novel Natural Sciences Repository aims to provide reliable information on various areas of scientific interest and presents its content in the simplest words and terms possible.
For biology researchers, the complex world of molecular proteins – where tens of thousands of atoms can comprise a single protein – may be getting clearer with the help of a new soft, transparent, and squishy silicone model they can hold in their hands.
