The construction of reversible supramolecular self-assembly remains a significant challenge. Here, we demonstrate the redox-triggered reversible supramolecular self-assembly governed by the "check and balance" of two secondary conformations within a brushlike peptide-selenopolypeptide conjugate. The conjugate constitutes a polypeptide backbone whose side chain contains selenoether functional moieties and double bonds to be readily grafted with β-sheet-prone short-peptide NapFFC. Read More

This Perspective is intended to raise questions about the conventional interpretation of protein folding. According to the conventional interpretation, developed over many decades, a protein population can visit a vast number of conformations under unfolding conditions, but a single dominant native population emerges under folding conditions. Accordingly, folding comes with a substantial loss of conformational entropy. Read More

Proper dendrite morphogenesis and synapse formation are essential for neuronal development and function. Dasm1, a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, is known to promote dendrite outgrowth and excitatory synapse maturation in vitro. However, the in vivo function of Dasm1 in neuronal development and the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. Read More

The pathogenic bacterium is a leading cause of diarrheal disease and mortality, disproportionately affecting young children in low-income countries. The increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistance in necessitates an effective vaccine, for which the bacterial lipopolysaccharide O-antigen is the primary target. serotype 6 has been proposed as a multivalent vaccine component to ensure broad protection against .
