UC Santa Cruz Study Marks Advance Toward Nanopore-Based Protein Sequencing | GenomeWeb

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have demonstrated an enzyme-driven method for unfolding proteins and moving them through a model α-hemolysin nanopore.

The work, detailed in a paper published this week in Nature Biotechnology, marks an advance toward nanopore-based protein sequencing, providing a proof-of-concept similar to early nanopore-based DNA sequencing work, the authors wrote.
