June 24th, 2009 by Kristi · No Comments


This month’s issue of Nature Structural & Molecular Biology offers a focus on protein folding with articles such as:

  • Editorial: Folding to Function (pp573)
  • Converging concepts of protein folding in vitro and in vivo pp574 – 581) by F Ulrich Hartl & Manajit Hayer-Hartl
  • An expanding arsenal of experimental methods yields an explosion of insights into protein folding mechanisms pp582 – 588) by Alice I Bartlett & Sheena E Radford
  • The ribosome as a platform for co-translational processing, folding and targeting of newly synthesized proteins pp589 – 597) by Günter Kramer, Daniel Boehringer, Nenad Ban & Bernd Bukau
  • Unraveling infectious structures, strain variants and species barriers for the yeast prion [PSI+] (pp598 – 605) by Peter M Tessier & Susan Lindquist
  • Cellular mechanisms of membrane protein folding  pp606 – 612)  byWilliam R Skach

…and speaking of protein folding, here are a couple of web-based resources for you to check out:
