Meet our SMALP experts at The International SMALP Conference taking place on Friday March 20, 2020 in New York City, US. The SMALP Conference welcomes researchers interested to learn about the latest developments in membrane protein structure
The International SMALP Conference is being held on Friday March 20, 2020 in New York City, and welcomes researchers interested to learn about the latest developments in membrane protein structure, function and native nanodiscs.
The development of SMA co-polymers to produce native nanodiscs is radically changing the field of membrane biology, and allows proteins to be seen and assayed in their biological environment for the first time.
The proteins responsible for signaling, transport and trafficking can now be seen at high resolution bound to asymmetric bilayers with biological lipids and post-translational modifications intact.
Therapeutic targets including heteromultimeric complexes bound to small molecules can be visualized and screened in their disease-relevant states.
New applications of SMALPs are rapidly evolving that use polymer-stabilized membrane proteins as molecular sensors and energy trasducers.
This meeting brings together a diverse group of researchers to examine the latest progress and aspirations within the field, including new polymers, techniques and target structures, and to explore the next frontiers.
