Human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP) forms cytotoxic fibrils in type-2 diabetes and insulin is known to inhibit formation of these aggregates. In this study, a series of insulin-based inhibitors were synthesized and assessed for their ability to slow aggregation and impact hIAPP-induced membrane damage. Computational studies were employed to examine the(More)
