Invisible deuterated detergents for studying structures of membrane proteins

Tamim Darwish visit to Lise Arleth

Detergents are commonly used to stabilise membrane proteins in order to study their structures. The Chemical Deuteration Team of the National Deuteration Facility has developed a new method for the synthesis of common detergents that allows for selective deuteration such that they are invisible when studied using small angle neutron scattering, leaving only the signal from the protein of interest.
