Determination of regions involved in amyloid fibril formation for Aβ(1-40) peptide

Mechanisms of amyloid formation of Aβ peptide are studied intensively. Determination of regions responsible for aggregation of the peptide and formation of amyloid fibrils is one of the primary aims in studying the formation of such structures.

Unusual structure of aggregates formed by the fragment of Аβ(16-25) peptide

By the moment, a large number of proteins and peptides, polymerization of which in fibril formations leads to emergence of different diseases (amyloidosis), have been identified. But it is not always that fibril formations are toxic for
