3,3'-[(1,1'-Biphenyl)-4,4'-diyl-bis(2,1-diazenediyl)]bis(4-amino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid) disodium salt
Congo Red amyloid fibril-binding dye; inhibits Fib-beta A neurotoxicity by inhibiting fibril formation or by binding to preformed fibrils. Congo red also inhibits the pancreatic islet cell toxicity of diabetes-associated amylin, another type of amyloid fibril. Also acts as an inhibitor of protease-resistant prion protein formation.
