Scientists Take a Picture of Atomic-Scale of Artificial Proteins

Protein-like molecules known as “polypeptoids” (or “peptoids” for short) have great promise as precision constructing blocks for creating a wide range of designer nanomaterials, like flexible nanosheets—ultrathin, atomic-scale 2-D supplies. They might advance various purposes—resembling synthetic, disease-specific antibodies and self-repairing […]

Now Scientists Know How DNA’s Chaperone Looks Like

It is long recognized that the proteins that package DNA, like students at a high school dance, require a chaperone. However, what precisely that guardian appears to be like and acts like has been a mystery—till now. A group of […]
