Detailed biophysical description of antibody-protein antigens interactions is important for guiding physical characterization and molecular engineering of therapeutic targets. Proteins can […]
Microgels are colloidal particles consisting of cross-linked 3-dimensional polymer networks. These particles have the ability to shrink or swell substantially in response to external stimuli such as temperature, pH, ionic strength and light, allowing […]
The vital function of cells depends strongly on cell membranes which enclose cellular compartments and separate the cell interior from the extracellular domain. Oxidative stress for example damages the cell membrane and is at the origin of many pathological conditions such as […]
Protein aggregation into fibrillar structures is associated with a variety of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. It is becoming increasingly evident that the toxic species causing the adverse effects are not mature fibrils, but oligomers. These are aggregates formed transiently at […]
Small-angle X-ray scattering is complementary to other structural biology techniques. It provides reliable information on the shape of proteins in solution and associated parameters including macromolecule interactions and dynamics. Reliability of the measurements and high throughput are […]
The Small-angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) technique is now well known for studying biological systems and more specifically proteins in solution.
SAXS measurements allow the determination of the […]
