Avoiding common pitfalls in designing kinetic protocols for catalytic amyloid studies

Liam R. Marshall, Ivan V. Korendovych

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


Kinetic characterization of catalytic amyloids arguably presents a most challenging type of kinetic experiment where careful consideration of many factors is required. Here we outline common pitfalls in devising kinetic studies in such systems. Unlike the more specific protocols for various applications described in this volume, this chapter deals with general issues in setting up kinetic experiments that are incredibly important but often go without explicit mention in the specialized literature. The kinetic fundamentals described here can be also be of use to the enzymologists working with more traditional catalysts.
