CONCLUSIONS The prediction of protein tertiary structure from the amino acid sequence is an eminently complex task, far from being totally settled at present time. However, significant progress is being made, and the models obtained by the different in silico prediction techniques are becoming more and more reliable (12-14). The level of reliability crucially depends on the sequence similarity between the target sequence and proteins of known structures. Under appropriate conditions, some proteins undergo conformational changes leading from their native structure to alternative conformations.

They possess an intrinsic structural polarity. Thus we call this species critical oligomers. Different Mechanisms of critical oligomer and protofibril formation The reaction order derived from various biophysical methods is two for both growth stages of PGK. Populations of dimers, trimers etc. could be detected by SEC. Protofibril assembly of PGK can be described within the framework of a generalized diffusion-collision model (1). Formation of critical oligomers of SHaPrP90-232 is an apparent two-state reaction between monomers and octamers.
