Краткий осмотр (реферат): A number of so-called conformational diseases (Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases, type II diabetes, spongiform encephalopathies, systemic amyloidosis) are associated with the deposition in various tissues highly-ordered protein aggregates (amyloid fibrils) that kill cells or prevent them from functioning properly. Amyloid fibrils are organized in a cross β-structure with a helical array of β-sheets, in which the long axis of the fibril is parallel to the long axis of the helix and is perpendicular to the β-strands Amyloid can be identified using a range of techniques: electron and atomic force microscopy, X-ray fibril diffraction, thioflavin T fluorescence, Congo Red (CR) birefringence or spectrophotometric assay. However, therapeutic detection of amyloid fibrils with CR test may be hampered by CR ability to form complexes with native proteins. In the present study we investigated CR binding to a series of native proteins – hemoglobin (Hb), cytochrome c (cyt c), ribonuclease A (RNase), human serum albumin (HSA). CR interaction with Hb and cyt c was followed by absorbance decrease and long wavelength shift of spectrum maximum in the case of Hb, indicating that native protein structure contains binding sites for CR. Association constant (Kb) and binding stoichiometry (n) recovered from the data analysis within the framework of Langmuir adsorption model were found to be: Kb=(2.1 ± 0.3)Ч105 M-1, n=3.3 ± 0.5 for Hb and Kb=(6.0 ± 0.9)Ч104 M-1, n=1.0 ± 0.3 for cyt c. The presence of lipid vesicles composed of phosphatidylcholine and cardiolipin did not exert influence on CR-Hb interactions. In contrast, association constant for CR-cyt c complexation markedly increased. This finding was interpreted in terms of cyt c unfolding at lipid-water interface coupled with exposure of additional CR binding sites on the protein surface. Formation of CR complexes with RNase and HSA was followed by the long-wavelength shift of absorption maxima. CR-HSA binding curves have Langmuir-like shape, whereas CR-RNase adsorption isotherms are slightly sigmoidal pointing to cooperative nature of the binding process. The binding parameters were estimated to be Kb=(1.3 ± 0.3)Ч104 M-1, n=2.3 ± 0.5 for HAS and Kb=(3.4 ± 0.3)Ч104 M-1, n=0.6 ± 0.1 and Hill parameter α= 1.1±0.2 for RNase.
