    Quercetin binding accelerates prion fibrillation into proteinase sensitive and loosely structured amyloids (Yu et al, 2022)

    Quercetin binding accelerates prion fibrillation into proteinase sensitive and loosely structured amyloids Kun-Hua Yu, Cheng-Ping Jheng, Cheng-I Lee Amyloidoses are caused by the deposition of amyloid fibrils ascribed to protein misfolding. In this study, we examined the antiamyloidogenic and...

    A central role for amyloid fibrin microclots in long COVID/PASC: origins and therapeutic implications

    Post-acute sequelae of COVID (PASC), usually referred to as ‘Long COVID’ (a phenotype of COVID-19), is a relatively frequent consequence of SARS-CoV-2 infection, in which symptoms such as breathlessness, fatigue, ‘brain fog’, tissue damage, inflammation, and coagulopathies (dysfunctions of the...
