Preventing amyloid fibril formation. The recently identified pathogenic D76N ß2 microglobulin variant which readily forms amyloid fibrils under physiological conditions in vitro is a crucial new tool for mechanistic studies and screening studies

We have characterized the first naturally occurring structural variant of human beta-2M, D76N, as the amyloid fibril protein in a family with a new phenotype of late onset, fatal, hereditary systemic amyloidosis (Valleix et al N Engl J Med). We have discovered a method suitable for the fibrillogenesis of this protein that is consistent with
