Following the extension of the generic amyloid hypothesis to include metabolites, which possess the ability to form nanofibrillar structures and display amyloid-like properties, a new paradigm for the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases was established. By utilizing the budding yeast S. cerevisiae and advanced physical and chemical approaches, I focus on examining both the mechanism and the consequences of metabolite self-assembly in order to better understand the pathology of such diseases and discover new potential drugs.
