"The ASBMB has been an integral part of my career path, providing me with the resources, tools, and professional network to succeed — first as a trainee, and now as a professional."

Hao Wu

"I am delighted to be a long term member of ASBMB, which not only represents the core disciplines in my research but also helps me to stay connected with the field at large. It is a wonderful resource for all of us researchers and educators."

Joseph Chaney

"I am a member of the ASBMB because of the community the society provides along with a wealth of knowledge and resources."

Robert Haltiwanger

"I’ve been a member of ASBMB since I was a graduate student in the 1980’s. I’ve always been fascinated by molecular mechanisms of biological processes, and this is the best place to learn more about that. ASBMB is my scientific home."

Intrinsically disordered proteins

July 7 | 1–2 p.m. EDT

Intrinsically disordered proteins, which don’t have just one three-dimensional structure, often carry out their biological roles through transition between structures. For example, a pH-dependent change in condensation effects iridescence in squid proteins; a selection of competing folded conformations drive neurodegeneration-related condensation of TDP53; and a transition from closed to open structure controls protease sensitivity of an enzyme important for asthma and allergies.
