FEBS Letters issue on Protein Misfolding and Disease

I just learned that the 20 August 2009 issue of FEBS Letters, devoted to "Protein Folding, Misfolding and Disease," is open-access, free for download.

At the moment, I'm reading The role of molecular chaperones in human misfolding diseases [PDF] by Sarah A. Broadley and F. Ulrich Hartl of the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry. It's a good overview of the subject, with 107 references, mostly from 2002 on.

Anxious to look at several other papers, in particular:

Bridging the gap: From protein misfolding to protein misfolding diseases
by Leila M. Luheshi, Christopher M. Dobson

Structure–activity relationship of amyloid fibrils
by Samir K. Maji, Lei Wang, Jason Greenwald, Roland Riek

The GroEL/GroES cis cavity as a passive anti-aggregation device
by Arthur L. Horwich, Adrian C. Apetri, Wayne A. Fenton

Cells and prions: A license to replicate
by Mario Nuvolone, Adriano Aguzzi, Mathias Heikenwalder
