Title Amyloid peptide self assembly in protic ionic liquids
Author Debeljuh, Natalie
Institution Deakin University
School School of Life and Environmental Sciences
Faculty Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment
Degree type Research doctorate
Degree name Ph.D.
Thesis advisor Barrow, Colin
Date submitted 2014-10
Keyword(s) protic ionic liquids (PILs)
Alzheimer’s disease
proteins
amyloid fibril formation
Aβ fibrils
Summary Overall, this thesis presents the novel approach of using carefully selected PILs to both control amyloid fibril formation and inhibit/dissolve Aβ fibrils through induced helical transitions. These results provide insights into future PIL-mediated protein studies and the potential application of PILs in AD pathogenesis.
