Vertebral asymmetry of the scoliotic spine

Scoliosis is a three-dimensional (3D) deformity of the spine, including lateral deviation in the coronal plane, as well as deformations in the sagittal plane and vertebral rotation in the transverse plane. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is the

A novel synthetic approach to alternating peptides

Polypeptide with a repeating sequence has attracted particular attention as a promising candidate of innovative structural materials. Fibrous proteins such as fibroin, collagen, and elastin are the representative class among natural polypeptides with specific repeating sequence. For
