AMYLOIDOSIS IN VIVO: FROM MOLECULAR INTERACTIONS TO THERAPEUTIC TARGETS R. Kisilevsky Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Queen’s University, and The Syl and Molly Apps Research Centre, Kingston General Hospital, Kingston Ontario CANADA, K7L 3N6 INTRODUCTION Over the last 15-20 years, based on in vitro studies, major progress has been made in understanding the mechanism of amyloid fibrillogenesis. These studies revealed that proteins with amylodogenic potential exist in a native conformation in equilibrium with forms that possess intermediate conformations.
