The conversion of peptides or proteins from their soluble forms into amyloid fibrils is frequently associated with pathological conditions ranging from neurodegenerative disorders to systemic amyloidoses. Although amyloid fibrils and non-disease-associated amyloid-like fibrils can be formed by peptides and proteins that share no sequence identity, they display several common properties. One hallmark of amyloid and amyloid-like fibrils is their highly ordered organization into a laminated cross… CONTINUE READING
