Pressure and cosolvent modulation of the catalytic activity of amyloid fibrils†
We report on the effects of pressure and cosolvents on the catalytic activity of a designed amyloid fibril by applying a high-pressure stopped-flow methodology with rapid spectroscopic detection. FTIR spectroscopic data revealed a remarkable pressure and temperature stability of the fibrillar catalyst. The activity is further enhanced by osmolytes and macromolecular crowding.
