Unfolding of Fibril Amyloid Beta-sheets

The unfolding of fibril amyloid beta-sheets in algal addhesive reveals a distinct sawtooth pattern. The force curve was fitted to the worm-like chain (WLC) model (black dotted lines) and a persistence length of 0.22 nm was calculated. Data from Mostaert et al. (2006), J. Biol. Phys. 32(5):393.
