By Ronald Wetzel, Indu Kheterpal

The power of polypeptides to shape however folded, polymeric constructions equivalent to amyloids and similar aggregates is being more and more famous as an immense new frontier in protein learn. This new quantity of tools in Enzymology in addition to half B (volume 412) on Amyloid, Prions and different Protein Aggregates proceed within the culture of the 1st quantity (309) in containing distinct protocols and methodological insights, supplied through leaders within the box, into the most recent equipment for investigating the buildings, mechanisms of formation, and organic actions of this significant classification of protein assemblies.

* provides specified protocols
* comprises troubleshooting information
