Faulty protein folding plays a role in medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cystic fibrosis, and BSE (mad cow disease). Now, scientists at Stanford University have found that they could monitor changes in the folding of a yeast protein by attaching gold nanoparticles.
The researchers reckon the technique may ultimately lead to fast, affordable methods for detecting antibodies and other disease-related proteins.
