Illustration of human brain-derived beta-amyloid fibrils. The fibrils are made up of beta-amyloid peptides (chains of protein, green, orange and pink) stacked in a three-fold symmetry. These insoluble fibres resist degradation and so build-up in brain tissue, forming the amyloid plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients.
