Ice cold microscopy reveals structure of amyloid fibrils

The demographic development is to blame: neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's are becoming increasingly problematic for our society. Although plaques have long been the target of researchers, many other causes, diagnosis and therapy remain in the dark. Researchers at the University of Düsseldorf have now analyzed the structure of amyloid fibrils, plaque precursors, using cryo-electron microscopy. Dusseldorf – …

Model for more precise protein structures | heise online

The structure determination of proteins is an important task and plays a role in drug development, for example. However, the two most common methods of X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy often give different results. However, an examination of the differences provided clues as to why these arise and how the structure determination can be specified. This writes Technology …
