Human transthyretin has an intrinsic tendency to form amyloid fibrils and is heavily implicated in senile systemic amyloidosis. Here, detailed neutron structural studies of perdeuterated transthyretin are described. The analyses, which fully exploit the enhanced visibility of isotopically replaced hydrogen atoms, yield new information on the stability of(More)
The binding of mammalian spermatozoa to the egg's extracellular coat, the zona pellucida, is a complex process which culminates in species-specific penetration of the sperm to the egg plasma membrane. To investigate where on the spermatozoon's surface the zona binding sites are located, whole rabbit zonae were labeled with FITC, heat solubilized and used to(More)
