Influence of nanoparticles, surrounding ions on formation of β-sheet structure in amyloid β proteins

Infrared (FT-IR) spectra and β-sheet ratio of Aβ peptides interacting with CeF3 NPs. The effect of CeF3 nanoparticles on amyloid beta protein structure is measured directly with FT-IR spectroscopy. The formation of secondary structure shows up as a feature in the IR spectrum. Credit: Masakazu Umezawa / Tokyo University of Science, License type: CC BY … Read more
