Tag: X-ray analysis of amyloids

On the ultra-thin, extremely regular layer of graphene, the fibrils align themselves in parallel in large domains. The intense X-ray light from the X-rax free-electron laser LCLS at the SLAC National Accelerator Center enabled the researchers to gain partial information about the fibril structure from ensembles of just a few fibrils.

X-ray laser opens new view on Alzheimer proteins

DESY scientists have used a powerful X-ray laser to gain insights into the structure of different amyloid samples. Using x-ray laser, they discovered filamentous biomolecules...
