  • Nanocages for gold particles: What is happening inside?

    In living organisms, free metal ions are stored and transported through proteins assembled into highly ordered structures such as protein cages via a reaction called biomineralization. This sophisticated biological strategy has attracted the attention of biotechnologists who speculate that natural i more

  • Two labels, two locations, one protein

    Research describes a new method for labelling proteins with two different chemical components at two separate, selected locations on the protein structure. Scientists in the UK used the local protein microenvironment to control the outcome of reactions between cysteine residues on the surface of a d more

A Brief Guide to the Twenty Common Amino Acids

The proteins that make up living organisms are huge molecules, but they’re composed of tinier building blocks, known as amino acids. There are over 500 amino acids found in nature, yet, of these, the human genetic code only directly codes for 20. Every protein in your body is made up of some linked more



Cysteine Cysteine (abbreviated as Cys or C) Biological functions The cysteine thiol group is nucleophilic and easily oxidized. The reactivity is enhanced when the thiol ionized, and cysteine residues in proteins have pKa values close to ne ... more
