INHIBITION OF AMYLIN FIBRIL FORMATION AND PROTECTION OF ISLET β-CELLS BY MEDICINAL PLANTS

Misfolding of some proteins, their self-assembly into insoluble amyloid structures underlies many diseases, constituting a group of amyloid-related pathology. Fibrillation of peptide hormone of pancreas, amylin, is considered as one of the causes of death of β-cells in type 2 diabetes. In this work we studied in vitro protection of islet β-cells from death in the presence of aggregated amylin by...
