  • Breakthrough Prize 2020 for biochemist Hartl and geneticist Horwich

    F.-Ulrich Hartl, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, is awarded the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences 2020 together with Arthur L. Horwich of Yale School of Medicine/HHMI. They are honored for discovering functions of molecular chaperones in mediating protein foldi more

  • How nerve cells control misfolded proteins

    Neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s or Parkinson’s disease are associated with misfolded and aggregated proteins. Researchers have discovered a new mechanism used by cells to protect themselves. Researchers have identified a protein complex that marks misfolded proteins, stops them from more

  • Acrobatic Duo in the Cells

    Just like an acrobatic duo, some proteins lend each other stability. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel have discovered that the protein “Trigger factor” recognizes a partner by instable, flexible domains, to then together form a stable protein duo. Misfolded proteins are non-f more

Protein folding

Protein folding Protein folding is the physical process by which a polypeptide folds into its characteristic three-dimensional structure . Each protein begins as a polypeptide , translated from a sequence of mRNA as a linear chain of amino aci ... more
