Learn all about protein, a macronutrient that builds and maintains body tissue. Find out about what protein is used for and which foods contain protein with this article.
The biological rationale for targeting protein–protein interactions as a therapeutic strategy is strong, but identifying viable small-molecule drugs to achieve this has proved highly challenging. Th...
Researchers have discovered new protein-protein interactions in schizophrenia. The findings could lead to greater understanding of the biological underpinnings of this mental illness, as well as point...
(The Protein Society) The Protein Society announces the 4th annual selection of two Protein Science authors as winners of the 2016 Best Paper Awards. The winners will be acknowledged at the 30th Anniv...
The protein‐stabilizing and cell‐penetrating activities of Bombyx mori 30Kc19 α‐helix domain (30Kc19α) were investigated. Recently, 30Kc19 protein has been studied extensively as it has both p...
Mutations in the gene SOD1 are known to cause ALS, but it was not known if the associated protein was involved. Now, a study shows the protein may drive ALS in a prion-like way.
The cellular prion protein PrPC promotes peripheral myelin homeostasis by acting on a G protein-coupled receptor to increase levels of cyclic AMP in Schwann cells.
The RNA binding protein IGF2BP3 is normally active in fetal tissue and undetectable in most adult tissue. But production of the protein is reactivated in many types of aggressive cancer, and it is ass...
Protein or protein regions that are not forming well-defined structures in their free states under native-like conditions are called intrinsically disordered proteins. Such proteins are very common in...
The prediction of protein-protein complexes from the structures of unbound components is a challenging and powerful strategy to decipher the mechanism of many essential biological processes. We presen...
Therapeutic protein discovery study highlights the need for the development of quantitative bioanalytical methods for determining the levels of both the therapeutic protein and the target protein, as ...
Characterizing protein-protein interfaces and the hydrogen bonds is a first step to better understand proteins' structures and functions toward high-resolution protein design. However, there are few l...
Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are involved in various biological processes, and underlying mechanism of the interactions plays a crucial role in therapeutics and protein engineering. Most machin...
