One would predict that if heparan sulfate is a critical factor in AA amyloidogenesis that such transgenic mice would be resistant to AA amyloid induction. The results with such animals using the rapid murine induction protocol were both surprising and satisfying. Such mice developed splenic amyloid as rapidly and quantitatively equal to the wild-type controls. However, within the time frame examined, they failed to deposit AA amyloid in kidneys and liver, sites occupied by easily demonstrable AA amyloid in controls.
This pattern is not obviously related to the chemical class (AA or AL) of the underling amyloid fibril (Fig. 1; Table 1). The most exposed part in lipids are unsaturated fatty acids. Since fatty acid double bonds are highly unstable , their loss reflects the Amyloid Fibrillogenesis 17 extent of degradation. This points out against a strong oxidative or hydrolytic damage of the lipid classes that could have occurred while purifying the amyloid deposits or during lipid analysis. CONCLUSION: The method is suitable for analysis of small quantities of lipids present in purified amyloid deposits.
0) kcal/mol (2). The time evolution of the progression curves derived from all methods can only be explained consistently by the assumption that critical oligomers do not interact with monomers to a considerable amount. This property is in contrast to a nucleus which is the defining hallmark of nucleation polymerization mechanisms (4). The critical oligomers represent a pre-aggregated state of proteins which has to be populated to allow further growth to fibrillar states. But the kinetics of their formation and their assembly to protofibrils are distinct.
