Raman Spectroscopy Platform Delivers Insights on Intrinsically Disordered Proteins

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
HONG KONG, April 30, 2021 — Researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) developed optical tweezers-coupled Raman spectroscopy that can directly probe the structural features of alpha-synuclein, an intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) that is closely linked to Parkinson’s disease. Through focus on individual protein molecules, the approach probes the IDP at the physiological concentration. It is a challenge to analyze proteins at low concentrations, especially for those in a mixture of various conformations, such as IDPs, which play an important role in biological processes...Read full article
