Chiral superstructures of insulin amyloid fibrils.

Abstract

Hydrodynamic forces are capable of inducing structural order in dispersed solid phases, and of causing symmetry-breaking when chiral crystals precipitate from an achiral liquid phase. Until it was observed upon vortex-assisted fibrillation of insulin, such behavior had been thought to be confined to few unbiological systems. In this paper we are discussing… (More)
