New Method for Selective Binding of Proteins

News

A new method of selectively binding proteins to nanoparticles has been published. The nanoparticles automatically recognize specific peptides, i.e. small proteins, and enter into highly selective binding with them. Among the model peptides which the researchers examined were amyloids. The researchers hope that the mechanism they have discovered might provide a new approach to treating diseases in which such deposits occur, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
