MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Research indicates that most neurodegenerative diseases, systemic amyloidoses and many others, arise from the misfolding and aggregation of an underlying protein. This is the first book to discuss significant achievements in protein structure-function relationships in biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular medicine. The authors summarize recent progress in the understanding of the relationships between protein misfolding, aggregation and development of protein deposition disorders.


Feature:

Fills the gap of what has not been discussed in protein review and protocol books


Back cover:

Protein Misfolding, Aggregation, and Conformational Disease, is the first book to discuss significant achievements in protein structure-function relationships in the areas of biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular medicine. This volume summarizes recent achievements in the understanding of the relationships between protein misfolding, aggregation and development of protein deposition disorders. Research indicates that various human disorders, including most neurodegenerative diseases, systemic amyloidoses and many others, arise from the misfolding and aggregation of an underlying protein. Protein Misfolding, Aggregation and Conformational Diseases is an ideal book for biochemists, protein scientists, immunologists, pharmaceutical scientists, and molecular and cellular biologists.
