Amyloid fibers sprout one step at a time
...rchers have combined sophisticated biochemical and imaging
techniques to get a glimpse of the stepwise assembly of amyloid fibers in a yeast prion protein. Their findings suggest that these structured fibers form in competition with the amorphous globules that some believe may cause toxicity in amyloid disea...
