Computational tools are increasingly being applied to solve the protein aggregation problem, providing insight into amyloid structures and aggregation mechanisms. The paradigm of Abeta amyloid structure elucidation provides an example of an innovative experimental design and endeavor, echoing the computational testing of possible molecular associations, all reflected in the current Ma-Nussinov-Tycko model of the Abeta amyloid. Simulations have shown that dimer formation can lock some misfolded… CONTINUE READING
