Remarkably, several mutations in genes encoding APP or presenilins, members of the γ-secretases, can strongly favour the amyloidogenic proteolytic cleavage of APP and are hence associated with familial forms of the disease . 4. Intrinsic instability There are a few proteins that are believed to display an intrinsic propensity to adopt more than one conformation, a feature strongly inﬂuenced by hydrophobicity, electric charge and secondary structure  and which might—in the long term—lead to amyloid formation.
