Domain Structure Of Cataract Amyloids
Two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy reveals an unexpected structure for amyloid fibers formed from human γD-crystallin, which is a major component of cataracts (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1117704109). Martin T. Zanni of the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Sean M. Decatur of Oberlin College; and coworkers found this structure through a method that extends isotope-edited 2-D IR spectroscopy to entire proteins. In the past, isotopic . . .
