Protein folding: the next big theory to maintain skin health
Proteins are responsible for many biological processes in the skin. The amino acid composition and sequence of each protein determines an intricate and highly specific 3D shape that defines what it does and how it works. After decades of research, the recent progress of AI and deep-learning (ie: AlphaFold from DeepMind) have helped scientists around the world to unlock protein shapes. Protein folding has now emerged as a major challenge to understand many degenerative diseases, but it is also a major topic of interest for skincare. As a matter of fact, Symrise believes that efficient skin health protection strategies will involve protein protection. As the proteome (ie: all proteins of one organism or tissue) is sensitive t ... ...
