Abstract: Human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP) is a highly amyloidogenic protein

Amyloid proteins are inherently disordered with high conformation flexibility 1-2

Classic structure-based design for therapeutics drug development against amyloid proteins is challenging 3

Herein, mass spectrometry was used to identify binding regions of a range of reported hIAPP aggregation inhibitors, including human
insulin, (-)-Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG), 3-amino-1-propane sulfonic acid (3-APS), and 1H-Benzimidazole-2-sulfonic acid (BISA)

Deamidated hIAPP accelerates amyloid fibril formation,4 but the interactions with reported aggregation inhibitors are unknown
