ANNOTATION: 

We use NMR spectroscopy to directly study proteins in live cells. Having established the experimental reference frame for investigating the human amyloid protein alpha-synuclein in healthy neuronal and non-neuronal cells, I present new data on the fate and basic biological function(s) of this protein in different mammalian cell types. Our results reveal surprising new insights into the role of alpha-synuclein in binding to unique physiological membranes.
