Abstract

The growing interest in membrane interactions of amyloidogenic peptides and proteins emanates from the realization that lipid bilayers and membranes play central roles in the toxicity and pathological pathways of amyloid diseases. This chapter presents experimental schemes designed to study membrane interactions and membrane-induced fibrillation of amyloid peptides.
