The 4th International Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE) Meeting
31 May 2018 - 01 Jun 2018 • Boston, United States
Abstract:
The 4th International Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE) Meeting is a meeting open to research community around the world, with free registration.  This is a part of the ongoing International MPE Meetings Series.   To advance integrative molecular and population-level health science and address the unique research challenges specific to the field of MPE requires bringing together experts in various fields including molecular pathology, epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, and nutritional and environmental sciences.  This effort of integrating seemingly divergent fields can lead to a greater understanding of heterogeneity of the pathogenic process, and the impact of environmental, dietary, lifestyle, and genetic factors and their interactions on pathogenic processes.

FASEB SRC: Functional Disulfide Bonds in Health and Disease
17 Jun 2018 - 22 Jun 2018 • Leesburg, VA, United States
Abstract:
Most proteins are chemically modified after they are made to control how, when, and where they function. It was thought that only the amino acid side chains and the peptide bonds of proteins were chemically modified. It has become clear in recent years that the disulfide bonds of proteins are also modified. Some disulfide bonds are cleaved in the mature protein to control function. From a few examples a decade ago, there are now about thirty well-defined examples of control of protein function by functional disulfides and dozens more examples that are under investigation. Cleavage of a functional disulfide in a protein changes the bioactivity of the protein. Changes in ligand binding, substrate hydrolysis, proteolysis, or oligomer formation have been described. The functional disulfides are cleaved by reductases or by thiol–disulfide exchange. Viral, bacterial, plant and mammalian proteins are regulated by functional disulfides, so this mechanism of protein control operates in all life forms. The early indications are that cleavage of disulfide bonds may rival proteolysis of peptide bonds as a means of protein control.
