Peptides corresponding to excised alpha-helical segments of natural proteins can spontaneously form helices in solution. However, peptide helices are usually substantially less stable in solution than in the structural context of a folded protein, because of the additional interactions possible between helices in a protein. Such interactions can be thought(More)
Adiponectin, a hormone secreted from adipocytes, has been shown to protect against development of insulin resistance, ischemia–reperfusion injury, and inflammation. Adiponectin assembles into multiple oligomeric isoforms: trimers, hexamers and several higher molecular weight (HMW) species. Of these, the HMW species are selectively decreased during the onset(More)
