TISSUE DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF AMYLOID- IS PROTEOMICS THE ANSWER? 1 3 2 Maria M. Picken , Vanitha Thulasiraman , Roger N. , Fremont, CA, USA. Amyloidosis is a diverse group of diseases characterized by extra-cellular tissue deposits of abnormally folded proteins that are generically termed amyloid and that occur in one or many organs. The gold standard of diagnosis is based on detection of deposits in tissues and is based on either a histological approach using affinity to Congo red (which under polarized light produces an apple-green birefringence), or by the detection of fibrillar deposits using electron microscopy (1).
