• Proteins may prevent dysfunction, disease by relaxing, study shows

    6 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    A team of researchers used simulations and X-rays to conclude that disordered proteins remain unfolded and expanded as they float loose in the cytoplasm of a cell. The answer affects how we envision the movement of a protein through its life-essential for understanding how proteins fold, what goes wrong during disorders and disease and how to model their behavior.

  • New x-ray analysis methodology reveals structure of disordered protein

    6 days ago - By News Medical

    Scientists at The University of Notre Dame have shown that disordered proteins have a structure very close to what would be expected for a truly random structure using a novel X-ray scattering analysis methodology.
