  • RE: ATP and Amyloid

    Perhaps the below is better addressed to this article than to the Rice and Rosen Commentary?

    I am wondering how the results in this study in respect of a potential role in 'dissolving' amyloid tally with our findings that ATP promoted amyloid formation for a number of amyloidogenic peptides (see; Exley 1997 Neuroreport 8, 3411-3414; Exley & Korchazhkina 2001 J Inorg Biochem 84, 215-224).
