Long, fibrillar semiflexible aggregates were formed from soy glycinin and soy protein isolate (SPI) when heated at 85 degrees C and pH 2. Transmission electron microscopy analysis showed that the contour length of the fibrils was approximately 1 microm, the persistence length 2.3 microm, and the thickness a few nanometers. Fibrils formed from SPI were more branched than the fibrils of soy glycinin. Binding of the fluorescent dye Thioflavin T to the fibrils showed that beta-sheets were present… CONTINUE READING
