Molecular Basis of Orb2 Amyloidogenesis and Blockade of Memory Consolidation. PLoS Biol. 2016 Jan 26;14(1):e1002361. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1002361.
The functional amyloid CPEB/Orb2 has very transient toxic species and its formation is blocked by the anti-amyloidogenic peptide QBP1, which in Drosophila leads to blockade of memory consolidation, opening potential therapeutic applications for post-traumatic stress disorder
