Large size fibrillar bundles of the Alzheimer amyloid beta-protein.

Abstract

Self-assembly of amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) and its deposition into senile plaques are distinctive features of Alzheimer's disease. Abeta forms typical linear aggregates known as amyloid fibrils, with a diameter of a few tens of nanometers and a length spanning from hundreds of nanometers to micrometers. Fibrils eventually assemble into large size… (More)
