  1. 1. The amyloid structure, properties and application

    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk kemi och biofysik

    Author : Mantas Malisauskas; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amyloid; oligomers; AFM; cytotoxicity; biotemplating; lysozyme; MEDICINE Chemistry Biochemistry; MEDICIN Kemi Biokemi;

    Abstract : Protein aggregation, leading to the formation and depositions of amyloids, is a cause for a number of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeld-Jacob’s disease, systemic amyloidoses, type II diabetes and others . More than 20 proteins are associated with protein misfolding diseases and even a larger number of proteins can self-assemble into amyloid in vitro. READ MORE

    Abstract : Amyloid is defined as extracellular protein aggregates with a characteristic fibrillar ultra-structure, Congo red affinity and a unique x-ray diffraction pattern. At present, 25 different human amyloid fibril proteins have been identified, and amyloid aggregation is associated with pathological manifestations such as Alzheimer’s disease, spongiform encephalopathy and type 2 diabetes.

  3. 3. Medin amyloid - a matter close to the heart Studies on medin amyloid formation and involvement in aortic pathology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Abstract : Amyloidoses are a group of protein misfolding diseases characterized by deposits of insoluble fibrillar protein aggregates. Medin amyloid, which is the focus of this thesis, appears in the media of the thoracic aorta in nearly all individuals over 50 years. READ MORE

  5. 5. Islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) in Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marie Oskarsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amyloid; IAPP; Abeta; type 2 diabetes; Alzheimer disease; BRICHOS; heparan sulfate; islet amyloid; amyloid plaques; seeding; Medical Cell Biology; Medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The misfolding and aggregation of the beta cell hormone islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) into amyloid fibrils is the main pathological finding in islets of Langerhans in type 2 diabetes. Pathological assemblies of IAPP are cytotoxic and believed to contribute to the loss of insulin-producing beta cells. READ MORE
