Embracing disorder: protein mechanism insights from NMR
Register to download slides & media
Intrinsically disordered but functionally important regions in proteins are commonly found. Their study has evolved to an exciting field of discovery that reveals unexpected phenomena in the cellular matrix. Solution state high-resolution NMR spectroscopy has the edge in these investigations because of its high information content on the atomic level.
What to expect
In this SelectScience webinar professor Jane Dyson, Scripps Research Institute, will discuss NMR investigations of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP) and how this field of research has emerged in the recent decades overcoming many experimental challenges.
- albeit long unheeded, intrinsic disorder of proteins is both common and highly functional
- disordered proteins require different analytical approaches than structured proteins
- experimental NMR approaches to reveal IDP function, dynamics and interactions
