Amyloid Proteins

by Miguel Calero Einar M. Sigurdsson María Gasset

Amyloid diseases are characterized by the deposition of insoluble fibrous amyloid proteins. The word "amyloid" indicates a starch-like compound, and though a misnomer, continues to be the accepted term for this group of protein conformational disorders. The second edition of Amyloid Proteins expands upon the previous edition with current, detailed protocols for the preparation of amyloid and its precursors, specific analytical methods for studying these proteins, cell culture models and assays for production of amyloid proteins, and protocols for amyloid extraction from tissue, its detection in vitro and in vivo, as well as nontransgenic methods for developing amyloid mouse models. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.Authoritative and practical, Amyloid Proteins, Second Edition seeks to aid scientists in the amyloid field to establish new techniques in their laboratories.

Amyloid Proteins

by Einar M. Sigurdsson

A proven collection of readily reproducible techniques for studying amyloid proteins and their involvement in the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and therapy of amyloid diseases. The contributors provide methods for the preparation of amyloid and its precursors (oligomers and protofibrils), in vitro assays and analytical techniques for their study, and cell culture models and assays for the production of amyloid proteins. Additional chapters present readily reproducible techniques for amyloid extraction from tissue, its detection in vitro and in vivo, as well as nontransgenic methods for developing amyloid mouse models. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
