Amytracker for detection of Amyloidosis

Amytracker have been shown to bind with high affinity to aggregates composed of transthyretin (TTR) in Drosophila models of transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR), as well as in human tissues The optotracers have been used to detect aggregates in following forms of human amyloid diseases: AA amyloidosis associated with accumulation of serum amyloid A (SAA) protein, isolated atrial amyloidosis associated with accumulation of atrial natriuretic factor, various forms of amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis and islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) or amylin which is believed to be of critical importance for the loss of β-cells in type 2 diabetes.
