Potsdam University, Physical Biochemistry, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 24-25 Haus 25, D-14476 Golm b. Potsdam, Germany. We investigated the amyloid formation of phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) (1), a pseudo wild-type of barstar (C40A/C82A/P27A) (2) and the Syrian hamster prion protein SHaPrP 90-232 (3) in vitro. The first two proteins are not related to any known disease or change of metabolic state of organisms. Changes in mass, size and morphology of assembling protein were monitored by static and dynamic light scattering, size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and electron microscopy.
