Radical Damage Involving Sulfur-Containing Enzymes and Membrane Lipids
Abstract:Free radicals induce protein modifications, often associated to many biological phenomena. This mini-review overviews the approaches we have used to elucidate the radical-induced damages on sulfur-containing enzymes, such as ribonuclease and lysozyme, and the possible post-translational mechanism of the damage to another cell compartment, such as lipid domain.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
