High-speed atomic force microscopy takes on intrinsically disordered proteins

Structural and dynamic features of three IDPs (NTAIL, PNT and Sic1) revealed by HS-AFM imaging.The top and bottom panels correspond to the more-ordered and less ordered states, respectively. The numbers in red and blue represent the numbers of amino acids contained in the respective folded regions and fully disordered regions, respectively. The red and blue […]
