The intrinsically disordered protein α-synuclein (αSN) is linked to Parkinson's Disease and forms both oligomeric species and amyloid fibrils. The N-terminal part of monomeric αSN interacts strongly with membranes and αSN cytotoxicity has been attributed to oligomers' ability to interact with and perturb membranes. We show that membrane folding of monomeric(More)
Cockayne Syndrome is a segmental premature aging syndrome, which can be caused by loss of function of the CSB protein. CSB is essential for genome maintenance and has numerous interaction partners with established roles in different DNA repair pathways including transcription coupled nucleotide excision repair and base excision repair. Here, we describe a(More)
The 140-residue natively disordered protein α-synuclein (aSN) is a central component in the development of a family of neurodegenerative diseases termed synucleinopathies. This is attributed to its ability to form cytotoxic aggregates such as oligomers and amyloid fibrils. Consequently there have been intense efforts to avoid aggregation or reroute the(More)
