An important factor in many diseases based on the deposition of amyloids is the fibrillization of peptides. Furthermore, fibril formation also promises applications in bionanotechnology: fibrillar peptide hydrogels can be made for cell scaffolds and as substrates for functional and responsive biomaterials, biosensors, and nanowires. The mechanisms and kinetics of fibril formation are discussed.
