In addition to an article in JMB, Stefan also snagged the cover image: 03 May 2018 – Volume 70, Issue 3 On the cover: Proteins find their way into their active three-dimensional structure on a rugged energy hypersurface. In the cell, molecular chaperones assist protein folding. In this issue of Molecular Cell, Morán Luengo et al. … Read moreCPC artwork as cover for JMB!
In addition to an article in Mol Cell (03 May 2018 – Volume 70, Issue 3), Stefan also snagged the cover image:
The proteins in our cells are produced as long chains of amino acids that must fold precisely into their final shape. The key players in this folding process are the so-called molecular chaperones; protein helpers that make sure this process is successful. Researchers from Utrecht University, in close collaboration with colleagues from Heidelberg University, have … Read moreChaperones just prepare proteins for folding on their own
Insight in derailing cancer cell offers new clues for cancer treatment Scientists at UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University have discovered that genetic changes in the DNA of cancer cells can lead to the formation of small protein aggregates. These aggregates subsequently disable a whole network of tumour-suppressing proteins, thereby causing cancer growth. This new insight … Read moreClumping proteins disable anti-cancer- network
