Assembly of glucagon (proto)fibrils by longitudinal addition of oligomers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The process of glucagon peptide aggregation was studied with high resolution atomic force microscopy (AFM). The statistical analysis of ex situAFM images in combination with in situAFM observation suggests that it is more likely that (proto)fibrils are formed via direct longitudinal growth of oligomers, instead of the lateral association of two or more filaments.
