Primary Instructor:

The cellular function of a given protein is determined by its three-dimensional structure; yet acquiring its native conformation is often an error-prone process that can be easily perturbed by various environmental stresses, stochastic cellular events, and/or genetic mutations. Past and recent studies have revealed that protein misfiling leads to a wide range of human diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, hereditary emphysema, and Alzheimer’s disease. In this course, we will use the primary research articles to discuss various molecular mechanisms and potential therapeutic approaches of selected human diseases caused by misfiling of secretory and membrane proteins.
