Stabilization of a native protein mediated by ligand binding inhibits amyloid formation independently of the aggregation pathway.


The acylphosphatases from Sulfolobus solfataricus and Drosophila melanogaster (Sso AcP and AcPDro2) were previously shown to form amyloid-like aggregates without the need to unfold initially. Inorganic phosphate (Pi), a competitive inhibitor binding specifically to the active site of these proteins, was found to stabilize, upon binding, the native state of… (More)
