Why amyloid fibrils recruit catalase

Organised by:

SCI's Biotechnology Group in conjunction with the University of Westminster

University of Westminster,

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


The Alzheimer's amyloid-beta peptide plus related amyloid fibril forming peptides specifically bind catalase wiht a high affinity and inhibit catalase breakdown of hydrogen peroxide. Is this good or bad for you? Using a series of in vitro models we have characterised the interactions of a range of amyloid fibril types with catalase and suggested the benefits of these in protecting the body against the diseases associated with amyloid fibrils.
