Mikado in the cell: Arrangement of proteins could be responsible for diseases

Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease: the behavior of certain molecules that play a role in sub-cellular processes influence the development of such neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists from Mischa Bonn’s department at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research and Sapun Parekh’s lab at the University of Texas have now studied a specific protein using various methods to better understand the mechanism behind these diseases.
