Catch the New Wave of Peptide Science!


We invite you to join the 26th American Peptide Symposium, to be held in conjunction with the 11th International Peptide Symposium, June 22nd – June 27th, 2019, in the beautiful seaside town of Monterey, California, located 5 miles from the Monterey Peninsula Airport. The symposium theme of New Wave in Peptide Science will cover a broad range of topics connecting chemical, materials, biological, pharmaceutical and medical science. Originally established in 1968 by the American Peptide Society, this biennial Symposium assembles national and international peptide scholars, researchers, educators and students together with corporate exhibitors and sponsors.

SAXS Finds that Water is a Good Solvent for Many Disordered Proteins but the Addition of FRET Fluorophores can Alter this Property

The dimensions that unfolded and intrinsically disordered proteins, IDPs, adopt at low or no denaturant remains controversial. We recently developed an analysis procedure for small-angle X-ray scattering, SAXS, and found that even relatively hydrophobic IDPs remain nearly as expanded as the chemically denatured ensemble, Riback et al., Science 2017.
