Protein Manipulation using Peptides: Opportunities & Challenges

Time: 3:30 pm
day: Day Two


*Remote Presentation*

  • Protein manipulation refers to the ability to degrade proteins using either proteasomal or lysosomal pathways, to relocate proteins within the cell, and to modulate the interactions of the target protein with other proteins
  • Short peptides can be effective agents to manipulate intracellular proteins
  • Strengthening or weakening of protein/protein interactions using rational design can be achieved to hit therapeutic targets
