Data from: Thioflavin T as an amyloid dye: fibril quantification, optimal concentration and effect on aggregation

Christine Xue, Tiffany Yuwen Lin, Dennis Chang & Zhefeng Guo
Formation of amyloid fibrils underlies a wide range of human disorders, including Alzheimer's and prion diseases. The amyloid fibrils can be readily detected thanks to thioflavin T (ThT), a small molecule that gives strong fluorescence upon binding to amyloids. Using the amyloid fibrils of Aβ40 and Aβ42 involved in Alzheimer's disease, and of yeast prion protein Ure2, here we study three aspects of ThT binding to amyloids: quantification of amyloid fibrils using ThT, the optimal...
