This week’s featured print is a model of alpha synuclein which is a protein involved in Parkinson’s disease. This print demonstrates both the geometry and texture of the receptor so that the researchers can better understand where ligands bind and interact with the protein.
More information about Dr. Robert Mach’s research can be found in the biomedical literature, such as a recent article in ACS Chemical Neuroscience and this article in the newsletter of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.
