Intrinsically Disordered Proteins and the Janus Challenge

On behalf of the journal Biomolecules (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biomolecules), we introduce the discussion group “Intrinsically Disordered Proteins and the Janus Challenge”.

To gain insight into the role of proteins in the origin of life on Earth, two leading experts in the field of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) and the current Editors-in-Chief of the journal Biomolecules, Dr. Prakash Kulkarni and Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky, presented the Janus Challenge. This challenge consists in identifying an IDP, naturally occurring or synthetic, that has catalytic activity. Meeting this challenge may not only shed new light and even provide an alternative to the RNA world hypothesis, but may also serve as an impetus for technological advances with important biomedical applications.

A more comprehensive description of the Janus Challenge was published as an Editorial in the journal Biomolecules: https://www.mdpi.com/2218-273X/8/4/179

In order to support the Janus Challenge and improve the communication within the IDP community, we have opened this discussion group. Herewith, we aim to set in motion a debate in which every scientist can share their interesting ideas and points of views regarding the science behind the Janus Challenge.

solving mystery of origin of life

 
Barbara Garmon  |  9 March 2019 12:28  |  1 reply  |  View topic in separate thread
This post brings light towards the newly discovered proteins and their impact. There are many theories that suggest that life originates from the interaction of the basic unit of proteins called amino acids. This finding regarding the intrinsically disordered proteins may lead to new theories. Anyhow, the mystery behind the origin of life should be solved very by our scientists. I hope it will happen very soon. By visiting the website you may able to get more details.

Recently we published a paper (Kunnev and Gospodinov 2018) advocating for RNA-peptide world due to formation of Hybridization Dependent Peptides or HDPs. In order anything to grow in complexity as life MUST establish Darwinian Evolution first. Anything else is only background. This paper must be consider if you would like to advocate for the role of peptides in the origin of life.

After years of not sleeping well and not finding the right guide for natural products online, she decided to do the research so others don’t suffer when buying a new mattress as she did. For the past 3 years, she studied everything about sleep and natural product to put the best natural mattress buying guide online.
