Abstract

(Figure Presented) Most problems are soluble: Reversal of amyloid formation through a controlled induced transformation from β-sheet to soluble α-helix structures through the use of a switch element S (see scheme, σ is a helix-inducing template) could have an important consequences understanding the mechanisms of amyloid formation and clearance.
