Welcome to OBC issue 10!
OBC‘s cover this week features work by Helma Wennemers et al. at the University of Basel (Switzerland), who have used click chemistry to introduce moieties as sterically demanding as monosaccharides into the Yaa position of collagen model peptides, and studied the effect of different triazolyl derivatives as well as the configuration of the functionalized proline residue on the thermal stability of the collagen triple helices.
Roman S. Erdmann and Helma Wennemers
