Latest Protein structure Stories
Membrane proteins are of immense biological and pharmaceutical importance.
A multi-institutional consortium led by The Scripps Research Institute scientists, the Joint Center for Structural Genomics (JCSG), is the sole focus of a special issue of the journal Acta Crystallographica Section F.
Using a combination of high-powered computers and advanced experimental magnetic resonance data, a Florida State University biophysical chemist has developed techniques that improve the way scientists can study and predict the structure and dynamics of proteins found in the human body.
The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), an international public-private partnership that aims to determine three-dimensional structures of medically important proteins, announced the release into the public domain of its 1000th high-resolution protein structure.
The prediction of the structure and function of biological macromolecules (i.e., the machinery of life) is of foremost importance in the field of structural biology.
Discovery shows how cells decide what to recycle, unlocking debilitating disease's secret.
Biochemists and computer scientists at the University of Washington two years ago launched an ambitious project harnessing the brainpower of computer gamers to solve medical problems.
The apparently random self-assembly of molecular threads into the proteins that make the body work is far less frantic than previously thought, Michigan State University scientists say.
All proteins self-assemble in a fraction of the blink of an eye, but it can take a long time to mimic the process.
Using the NSF-funded Ranger supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Pengyu Ren is working to develop faster, cheaper ways to search for new drugs.
