Granulosa cells in ovarian follicles of rat, mouse, rabbit and hamster were studied by lanthanum tracer and freeze-fracture techniques. Abundant gap junctions exhibited striking intraspecific variation in size and pattern of particle aggregation. The smaller gap junctions showed close packing of the intramembranous A face particles. In large gap junctions,(More)
Transthyretin is a human protein capable of amyloid formation that is believed to cause several types of amyloid disease, depending on the sequence deposited. Previous studies have demonstrated that wild-type transthyretin (TTR), although quite stable, forms amyloid upon dissociation from its native tetrameric form into monomers with an altered(More)
