Abstract

Understanding of amyloid aggregation in terms of thermodynamics and kinetics is still limited. We herein examined the mechanism of β2-microglobulin amyloidogenesis using our unique method of isothermal titration calorimetry-based thermodynamic/kinetic measurements, and revealed the energy landscape of polymorphic amyloidogenesis under biological environment-mimicking conditions including shear forces and crowding effects.
