An Amyloid Organelle: Solid State NMR Evidence for Cross-Beta Assembly of Gas Vesicles

Functional amyloids have been identified in a wide range of organisms, taking on a variety of biological roles and being controlled by remarkable mechanisms of directed assembly. Here, we report that amyloid fibrils constitute the ribs of the buoyancy organelles of Anabaena flos-aquae. The walls of...
