Latest Protein structure Stories
Medical therapies may be developed to recover healthy proteins that are important to prevent diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and diabetes ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A computer analysis by two University of Michigan researchers shows promise for helping develop therapies for some major diseases by rescuing proteins that have stopped performing normally.
Whether you're talking about genes, or neurons, or the workings of a virus, at the most fundamental level, biology is a matter of proteins.
Enzymes are proteins that speed up chemical reactions, such as laundry detergent digesting protein stains, which are otherwise very difficult to remove.
A team of scientists from The Scripps Research Institute and the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) have developed a novel technique to observe previously unknown details of how folded structures are formed from an intrinsically disordered protein.
Arizona State University builds protein beam injector and contributes nanocrystals.
Scientists have invented a way to â€˜watchâ€™ proteins fold â€” in less than thousandths of a second -- into the elaborate twisted shapes that determine their function.
Predicting protein structures is valuable in understanding cellular procedures of diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan.
ARLINGTON, Va., Jan.
Interactions between proteins are at the heart of cellular processes, and those interactions depend on the interfaces where the direct physical contact occurs.
