Graphical Abstract:


Nowadays, glycation induced protein aggregation and related opposing strategies have received much attention. We present the effect of functionalized magnetic core–shell nanoparticles of Fe3O4 (MNPs) with β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) on the aggregation/fibrillation of bovine serum albumin (BSA) under diabetic condition known as amyloidogenesis. To confirm the β-CD conjugation on MNP, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) methods were applied. Moreover, spectrofluorimetry and spectropolarimetry were utilized to analyze the effect of β-CD/Fe3O4 MNPs on the aggregation and amyloidogenesis of BSA through glycation. The BSA amyloidogenesis was significantly inhibited by interfering β-CD-MNPs that may present the possible diagnostic and preventive applications against the degenerative effects of protein glycation/fibrillation under diabetes.

Keywords: Aggregation, β-cyclodextrin, diabetes, fibrillation, magnetic nanoparticles.
