About this book


This succinct volume addresses the production of inactive, potentially toxic proteins in the absence of correct protein folding and the resultant neurodegenerative diseases. Other topics include intrinsic disorder in protein structure and function and the effects of molten globules on protein toxicity. This concise and yet thorough text also discusses using toxin structure as a model for studying structural and functional aspects of protein chemistry. 

Protein Toxins in Modeling Biochemistry, a SpringerBrief, is essential reading for advanced researchers, scientists and advanced graduate students interested in protein chemistry and related areas of biochemistry and molecular science.
