The activities of amyloids from a structural perspective.


The aggregation of proteins into structures known as amyloids is observed in many neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. Amyloids are composed of pairs of tightly interacting, many stranded and repetitive intermolecular β-sheets, which form the cross-β-sheet structure. This structure enables amyloids to grow by recruitment of the same… (More)
