The conformational changes of the native proteins cause several diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease. Disulfide bonds play a critical role in the maintenance of the native (bioactive) conformation of peptides and proteins under thermodynamic or kinetic control. Therefore, it is important to regulate disulfide bond formation in protein folding. We currently focus on the development the chemical methods to regulate disulfide-coupled peptide and protein folding
