Renal Involvement in Human Systemic Amyloidoses (a) Amyloid Protein Precursor AL/AH Immunoglobulin; light/heavy chain AA Serum AA protein ALect 2 Leukocyte chemotactic factor 2 A[[beta].
By mimicking GAGs, Fibrillex(TM) competitively binds to the AA protein, preventing natural GAGs from binding to the same AA protein.
The putative VP7 gene of strain Bat/KE4852/07 was 981 bp and encoded a 326 aa protein.
Fibrillex belongs to the class of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) mimetics which competes with natural GAGs for the same binding sites on the AA protein.
