More than 90% of the protein is transthyretin (TTR) when the material is directly analysed by SDS-PAGE. Benson: But we see it in the histology of the vitreous body. Lundgren: There are some individual differences. Usually we have homogeneous gel-like aggregates. But the material may change upon storage in saline and start to form clumps or aggregates, so we usually spin it down. Kisilevsky: Are these vitreous extracts subsequently washed in water, as with most other amyloid isolation procedures?
The software for image handling and display lnouye & Kirschner 24 were provided and installed by Dr Tom Tibbitts (Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA; Tibbits & Caspar 1993). The intensity curve was obtained after subtraction of the background, which was fit by a polynomial. The integral areas and integral widths of the observed peaks were obtained by fitting a Gaussian function to the intensity profile (Inouye et a1 1989). e. the peak heights and half widths, by a least-squares routine. The film coordinates were changed to reciprocal coordinates and the intensity was corrected and normalized.
The vitreous body also has a lot of collagen, and I didn’t see any in your samples, so I think you must have done more than just washing out the amyloid. Did you? Lundgren: These are rather elderly people so there is not much collagen. More than 90% of the protein is transthyretin (TTR) when the material is directly analysed by SDS-PAGE. Benson: But we see it in the histology of the vitreous body. Lundgren: There are some individual differences. Usually we have homogeneous gel-like aggregates.
