报告简介:

Pathological amyloid fibrils are characteristic of highly thermostable cross-β structure1. However, the stable cross-β architecture cannot explain the reversible amyloid fibrils formed by RNA-binding proteins such as hnRNPA1 and FUS that is involved in the dynamic assembly of stress granules. Here we found that the reversible amyloid cores (RACs) of FUS and hnRNPA1 that can form reversible amyloid fibrils in the liquid-like droplet under the regulation of temperature and phosphorylation. We determined the atomic structures of the RACs in fibrillar forms by micro-electron diffraction. Combined with biochemical and cellular experiments, we reveal the structural basis of reversible amyloid formation and its role in liquid-liquid phase separation, and explains how ALS disease-associated mutation abolishes reversibility of RACs which results in abnormal aggregation observed in the brain of ALS patients. Our study sheds light on understanding not only the dynamic amyloid formation in RNA granules but also how the dysregulation of reversible amyloid leads to diseases.
