Mechanisms of protein folding and misfolding in vitro and in vivo

The molecular details of how proteins fold from the linear amino acid sequence to their unique three-dimensional structures is one of the major challenges in biochemistry today. Although it has been known for more than twenty years that proteins can fold to their native structures spontaneously in vitro, how this is achieved is still not understood in any great detail. The problem has recently become even more fascinating by the discovery that folding in the cell is is assisted by chaperone proteins and that misfolding events in vivo are responsible for several diseases.

Research into folding takes a multidisciplinary approach that crosses the boundaries between biochemistry, chemistry, medicine and physics and focuses on three major themes. The first uses an array of approaches to determine how the family of all-helical bacterial immunity proteins fold. In particular, the shape of the folding energy landscape, the structure of intermediates and the nature of the barriers that must be overcome to find the unique 3D fold of these proteins is being studied. In a parallel project we are investigating the role of protein misfolding in the onset of the amyloidogenic disease, haemodialysis-related amyloidosis. This disease affects more than 700,000 patients world-wide and is caused by the aggregation of the all-b-sheet protein b2-microglobulin into protein fibrils. We aim to elucidate the molecular mechanism of this, and other, diseases and to design therapies based on rational design or screening approaches. We are also developing new approaches to study folding. These involve using very fast methods of measuring folding on nsec and msec timescales, analysing the unfolding of proteins using the atomic force microscope, and watching the folding and unfolding of individual protein molecules in solution using single molecule fluorescence methods.

Our research intergarets with activities within FBS in  Integrative Membrane Biology; Structural Molecular Biology and Neuroscience
