BIBC 100 Assignments# 1 From the News and Views article: 1. They found a potential small molecule called epigallocatechini-3-gallate (EGCG) to prevent for the amyloidogenesis happening, so that Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases can be cure. 2. Antagonist means that the small molecule (EGCG) prevents formation of amyloid fibril. 3. First reason is that the small molecules are not big enough to affect the protein interact with another protein, therefore where the energy binds would mess up all the other amino acids and angstroms space. Second reason is that most of the time the contact site is flat, therefore it doesn’t give a high chance for the small molecule to get into the contact site. 4. The monomer itself is toxic and forms structured oligomers leads to amyloid fibril formation. When EGCG binds to unfolded structure, then monomer became nontoxic and forms bunch of unstructured oligomers and stop the formation of fibril formation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
