In PLoS Computational Biology this week, University of Leeds scientist Stefan Auer led work that studied how nanoparticles affect protein aggregation. Using molecular dynamics simulations of a system of hundreds of peptides over a millisecond timescale, his team showed that the aggregation is a two-phase process. The peptides first assemble on the nanoparticle and then "evolve into highly ordered beta-sheets as their size increases."
