Biological applications of designed hairpin peptides: as antimicrobials and as inhibitors of amyloidogenesis
More than 40 diseases have been associated with the misfolding of peptides (or proteins) that form fibrils with a very specific morphology. These peptides classified as amyloidogenic peptides have been implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Type II Diabetes, Hungtinton’s Disease etc. To ...
