Abstract [en]

Amyloid formation is a universal behavior of proteins central to many important human pathologies and industrial processes. The extreme stability of amyloids towards chemical and proteolytic degradation is an acquired property compared to the precursor proteins and is a major prerequisite for their accumulation. Here we report a study on the lability of human insulin amyloid as a function of pH and amyloid ageing. Using a range of methods such as AFM, thioflavin-T fluorescence, circular dichroism and gas phase electrophoretic mobility macromolecule analysis we probed the propensity of human insulin amyloid to propagate or dissociate in a wide span of pHs and ageing in a low concentration regime. We generated a three-dimensional amyloid lability landscape in coordinates of pH and amyloid ageing, which displays three distinctive features: (i) a maximum propensity to grow near pH 3.8 and an age corresponding the inflection point of the growth phase; (ii) an abrupt cut-off between growth and disaggregation at pH 8-10; (iii) isoclines shifted towards older age during the amyloid growth phase at pH 4-9, reflecting the greater stability of aged amyloid. Thus, lability of amyloid strongly depends on the ionization state of insulin and on the structure and maturity of amyloid fibrils. The stability of insulin amyloid towards protease K was assessed by using real-time AFM and thioflavin-T fluorescence. We estimated that amyloid fibrils can be digested both from the free ends and within the length of the fibril with a rate of ca. 4 nm/min. Our results highlight that amyloid structures, depending on solution conditions, can be less stable than commonly perceived. These results have wide implications for understanding the propagation of amyloids via a seeding mechanism as well as for understanding their natural clearance and dissociation under solution conditions unfavorable for amyloid formation in biological systems and industrial applications.
