Appel 1 Institut für Molekulare Biotechnologie (IMB), Beutenbergstraße 11, D-07745 Jena, Germany; ): Heller Institute of Medical Research, Tel Aviv, Israel 2 ): Max-Planck-Institut of Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany. com The formation of amyloid fibrils from soluble polypeptide chains represents a fundamental biochemical process in the initiation and progression of the various amyloid diseases. These fibrils occur in tissues in association with a range of chemically heterogeneous substances that includes glycosaminoglycans, proteins, such as SAP, and lipids [1].
