 Synonyms & Historicals
Amyloid .
Amyloid Fibrils .
Amyloid Substance .
Fibrils, Amyloid .
Substance, Amyloid .
A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease. .
Amyloidosis .
Amyloidoses .
A group of sporadic, familial and/or inherited, degenerative, and infectious disease processes, linked by the common theme of abnormal protein folding and deposition of AMYLOID. As the amyloid deposits enlarge they displace normal tissue structures, causing disruption of function. Various signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the deposits. .
Amylose .
An unbranched glucan in starch. .
Amyloidogenic Proteins .
Amyloid Proteins .
Proteins, Amyloid .
Proteins, Amyloidogenic .
Proteins that form the core of amyloid fibrils. For example, the core of amyloid A is formed from amyloid A protein, also known as serum amyloid A protein or SAA protein. .
Plaque, Amyloid .
Amyloid Plaques .
Neuritic Plaques .
Senile Plaques .

Protein AA .
Serum Amyloid Protein A .
Amyloid Protein AA .
Amyloid A Protein .
Amyloid Fibril Protein AA .
An ACUTE PHASE REACTION protein present in low concentrations in normal sera, but found at higher concentrations in sera of older persons and in patients with AMYLOIDOSIS. It is the circulating precusor of amyloid A protein, which is found deposited in AA type AMYLOID FIBRILS. .
