New insights into the metal-induced oxidative degradation pathways of transthyretin. Academic Article uri icon


  • The amyloidogenic mechanism of transthyretin is still debated but understanding it fully could lend insight into disease progression and potential therapeutics. Transthyretin was investigated revealing a metal-induced (Cr/Cu) oxidation pathway leading to N-terminal backbone fragmentation and oligomer formation; previously hidden details were revealed only by FT-IM-Orbitrap MS and surface-induced dissociation.
