Basudeb Bhattacharyya, Daniel Grilley and Todd Weaver, all Chemistry & Biochemistry; and Walter Novak, Wabash College, Chemistry Department; co-authored the article "Proteolysis of truncated hemolysin A yields a stable dimerization interface" in "Acta Crystallographica Section F: Structural Biology Communications" published on April 5, 2017 by Wiley-IUCr (International Union of Crystallography). The research results presented within this article reinforce the structural plasticity of beta-helix proteins. Implementation of beta-helix proteins has been identified within both bacterial pathogenesis and neurodegenerative disorders. Thus, the collaborative efforts presented within this publication connect structural plasticity with protein-based pathogenicity.
