Insight into the folding and unfolding behaviour of proteins is essential if we want to gain a better understanding of a number of serious diseases and neurological conditions. These are conditions that involve the faulty or incomplete folding of proteins and include certain forms of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and BSE (commonly known as mad cow disease). Heleen Meuzelaar describes experimental research into protein folding and unfolding.
