I took a look at Amyloid-beta precursor protein, a membrane protein that functions in neural growth that can become degenerate and cause plaques to form, which leads to neuron death, and can give rise to Alzheimer’s. I also took a look at myoglobin, the oxygen binding protein that is prevalent in muscle cells. Both of these proteins have distinctly different shapes, which gives rise to their very different properties.
