The effects of β-cyclodextrin (β-CyD) and trehalose on glycation of human serum albumin (HSA) were studied. These additives reduced AGEs and nanofibril formation of HSA under in vitro glycation conditions and improved its helical structure. These were accomplished through direct interactions of them with HSA and alterations in solute-protein interactions.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
