Dr. Lane and two Radford University students, Gina Burchett and Charles Folsom (shown in the center above) have published their latest research results in the open access journal PLOS ONE. The research gives specific insight into the structure of the E. coli β-glucuronidase protein and how it behaves. The structures proposed by Lane and her students give a more complete description of protein-protein interactions and may help researchers understand the higher-order packing in other biological systems. This work has far reaching implications as there are a number of human diseases associated with protein misfolding and subsequent aggregation including Alzheimer’s disease.
