Myocilin is a protein with a molecular weight near 50 kDa. It is expressed in almost all organs and tissues.1 We showed that the peptide DQLETQTR ELETA YSNLLRD corresponding to N-terminal leucine zipper motif (LZM) of the protein is able to form amyloid-like fibrils. The possible role of this motif in myocilin aggregation is discussed. © 2013 Landes Bioscience.
