Consider a particle with a right-handed chirality moving away from an observer. If the observer accelerates to a sufﬁciently high velocity that she starts to catch up with the particle, it will appear to be moving towards her and so takes on a left-handed chirality. The chirality of the particle vanishes in its rest frame. Only for massless particles such as photons and neutrinos is the chirality conserved since they always move at the velocity of light in any reference frame. This relativistic aspect of chirality is a central feature of elementary particle theory, especially in the weak interactions where the parity-violating aspects are velocity dependent .
Another recent result illustrates the complexity of such processes and the importance of the conditions. Thus it was found that vortexing an insulin solution at room temperature generated two distinct types of amyloid ﬁbrils with opposite local chiral preferences, the dominance of one or other type of ﬁbrils in a test tube being only stochastically determined; whereas vortexing at 60 C always generated the same chiral form, presumably under the inﬂuence of the chiral bias of the exclusively L-amino acids in the protein .
