This book is a reprint of the Special Issue Intrinsically Disordered Proteins and Chronic Diseases that was published in

Biology & Life Sciences
Medicine & Pharmacology
This book is an embodiment of a series of articles that were published as part of a Special Issue of Biomolecules. It is dedicated to exploring the role of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) in various chronic diseases. The main goal of the articles is to describe recent progress in elucidating the mechanisms by which IDPs cause various human diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, amyloidosis, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, and genetic diseases, to name a few. Contributed by leading investigators in the field, this compendium serves as a valuable resource for researchers, clinicians as well as postdoctoral fellows and graduate students
