Chemists Get Step Closer to Replicating Nature with Assembly of New 3D Structures

A team of chemists has created a series of three-dimensional structures that take a step closer to resembling those found in nature. The work offers insights into how enzymes are properly assembled, or folded, which could enhance our understanding of a range of diseases that result from these misfolded proteins.
