On The Cover: The protein α-synuclein is able to form oligomeric structures that are toxic to neuronal cells. The green tea compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) inhibits this cytotoxicity. Lorenzen et al., pages 21299–21310, show that EGCG does not alter the structure of the oligomer but strongly reduces its ability to bind to membranes. Illustration courtesy of Simon Lykkemark....
