Disease related protein aggregates develop an intrinsic fluorescence signature

Disease related protein aggregates develop an intrinsic fluorescence signature

In recent articles published in the journal Analyst and ChemBioChem we demonstrate that disease related proteins such as amyloid beta and tau, the proteins associated with Alzheimer’s disease, develop an intrinsic fluorescence when they form aggregates, so called protein amyloids.
