Molecular Origin of Polyglutamine Aggregation in Neurodegenerative Diseases
Expansion of polyglutamine (polyQ) tracts in proteins results in protein aggregation and is associated with cell death in at least nine neurodegenerative diseases. Disease age of onset is correlatedExpand

The rate and equilibrium constants for a multistep reaction sequence for the aggregation of superoxide dismutase in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Mutation-induced aggregation of the dimeric enzyme Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) has been implicated in the familial form of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, but the mechanism ofExpand

Engineering V-type nerve agents detoxifying enzymes using computationally focused libraries.
VX and its Russian (RVX) and Chinese (CVX) analogues rapidly inactivate acetylcholinesterase and are the most toxic stockpile nerve agents. These organophosphates have a thiol leaving group with aExpand
