Pre-amyloid oligomers of the proteotoxic RepA-WH1 prionoid assemble at the bacterial nucleoid. Sci Rep. 2015 Oct 1;5:14669.
Amyloid precursors of the synthetic bacterial prionoid RepA-WH1 locate at the nucleoid (green sector across an E. coli cell), as revealed by B3h7 (dots: conjugated Au particles), a new monoclonal antibody specific for amyloidogenic oligomers (upper box: dot-blot). RepA-WH1 monomer (yellow): stretches (in red) contributing to the conformational epitope.
