HITS Researchers participate in a project that reveals the mechanism of molecular chaperones – Publication in Nature Structural & Molecular Biology
Together with researchers from Heidelberg University and the German Cancer Research Center DKFZ, Rebecca Wade and Mykhaylo Berynskyy (MCM group) revealed the functional mechanism of molecular chaperones, repair systems for aggregated proteins. Protein aggregation can lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer‘s or Parkinson‘s and plays a role in aging processes. The results were published in Nature Structural & Molecular Biology.
