Monitoring Early-Stage Protein Aggregation by an Aggregation-Induced Emission Fluorogen

Kumar, Manjeet; Hong, Yuning; Thorn, David; Ecroyd, Heath; Carver, John


Highly ordered protein aggregates, termed amyloid fibrils, are associated with a broad range of diseases, many of which are neurodegenerative, for example, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The transition from soluble, functional protein into insoluble amyloid fibril occurs via a complex process involving the initial generation of highly dynamic early stage aggregates or prefibrillar species. Amyloid probes, for example, thioflavin T and Congo red, have been used for decades as the gold standard for...[Show more]
