Talk Title:
Intrinsically disordered proteins: Regulation and Disease

Thursday, April 8, 2010, 6:00pm

Centre for High-Throughput Biology, University of British Columbia

Joerg Gsponer

Over one-third of all proteins in a eukaryotic cell contain regions that
are intrinsically disordered. Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs)
lack a unique 3-dimensional structure, either entirely or in parts, when
alone in solution. Alterations of the endogenous levels of IDPs have
been associated with severe pathological conditions such as
neurodegeneration and cancer. I will discuss strategies that eukaryotic
cells have developed to minimize the potentially harmful effects of IDPs.
