Bio-nanoimaging: Protein Misfolding and Aggregation by Vladimir Uversky,Yuri Lyubchenko

By Vladimir Uversky,Yuri Lyubchenko

Bio-Nanoimaging: Protein Misfolding & Aggregation presents a different creation to either novel and tested nanoimaging ideas for visualisation and characterization of misfolded and aggregated protein species. The ebook is split into 3 sections protecting: - Nanotechnology and nanoimaging know-how, together with cryoelectron microscopy of beta(2)-microglobulin, learning amyloidogensis via agonize; and scanning tunneling microscopy of protein deposits - Polymorphisms of protein misfolded and aggregated species, together with fibrillar polymorphism, amyloid-like protofibrils, and insulin oligomers - Polymorphisms of misfolding and aggregation procedures, together with a number of pathways of lysozyme aggregation, misfolded intermediate of a PDZ area, and micelle formation through human islet amyloid polypeptide

Protein misfolding and aggregation is a fast-growing frontier in molecular drugs and protein chemistry. comparable problems comprise cataracts, arthritis, cystic fibrosis, late-onset diabetes mellitus, and diverse neurodegenerative illnesses like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Nanoimaging expertise has proved the most important in realizing protein-misfolding pathologies and in strength drug layout aimed toward the inhibition or reversal of protein aggregation. utilizing those applied sciences, researchers can visual display unit the aggregation method, visualize protein aggregates and study their properties.

  • Provides functional examples of nanoimaging learn from major molecular biology, mobilephone biology, protein chemistry, biotechnology, genetics, and pharmaceutical labs
  • Includes over two hundred colour pictures to demonstrate the facility of assorted nanoimaging applied sciences
  • Focuses on nanoimaging ideas utilized to protein misfolding and aggregation in molecular medicine
