Effect of maghemite nanoparticles on insulin amyloid fibril formation: selective labeling, kinetics, and fibril removal by a magnetic field.

Abstract

Maghemite (gamma-Fe(2)O(3)) magnetic nanoparticles of 15.0 +/- 2.1 nm were formed by nucleation followed by controlled growth of maghemite thin films on gelatin-iron oxide nuclei. Human insulin amyloid fibrils were formed by incubating the monomeric insulin dissolved in aqueous continuous phase at pH 1.6 and 65 degrees C. Magnetic human insulin amyloid… (More)
