Influencing Self-Assembly

Amphipathic peptides with alternating polar and nonpolar amino acid sequences efficiently selfassemble into functional β-sheet fibrils as long as the nonpolar residues have sufficient hydrophobicity...

Science Diagram

Mutational Scanning

High-resolution structure-activity analysis of polypeptides requires amino acid structures that are not present in the universal genetic code. Examination of peptide and protein...

Inhibitor Resistance

Although EGFR is a highly sought-after drug target, inhibitor resistance remains a challenge. As an alternative strategy for kinase inhibition, researchers in the...

Protein Identification

The identification and quantification of proteins lags behind DNA-sequencing methods in scale, sensitivity, and dynamic range. In work published in Nature Biotechnology, researchers in the Marcotte Lab we show that sparse...

Cell Penetration

Biotherapeutics are a promising class of molecules in drug discovery, but they are often limited to extracellular targets due to their poor cell penetration. High-throughput cell penetration assays are required for the optimization of...
