Abstract

Amyloid protein fibrils are associated with numerous degenerative diseases. Kappa-casein (KCN) at physiological conditions is known to form amyloid-like fibrils. Although these are not considered disease-related, understanding fibrillization and inhibition of this process may assist studying fibril formation phenomena in these diseases. Therefore, the associative behaviour of KCN, especially fibrillization, and ways to suppress it are currently of great interest. Recently, the possibility of inhibition of KCN fibrillization by another milk protein, beta-casein (βCN), was suggested [1-2]. The mechanism of this impact is not yet clear.
