H. A. Lashuel and co-workers show in their Communication on page 562 ff. that an N-terminal domain in the huntingtin protein is highly prone to aggregation. The consequences for toxicity are discussed.
An approach for predicting residual dipolar couplings from disordered protein chains is reported by M. Blackledge et al. in their Communication on page 687 ff.
In their Communication on page 645 ff., A. W. Xu et al. describe the synthesis of highly branched star-shaped bimetallic nanocrystals and their application as catalysts for the oxidation of ethanol.
