Chiral variants of amyloid fibrils prepared by agitating acidified solutions of bovine insulin at 45 °C not only induced quasi-mirror-imaged circular dichroism spectra upon complexation with 2-anthracenecarboxylate but also gave anti-head-to-head-cyclodimers of the opposite absolute configurations upon photoirradiation.
