The vibrational fingerprints of hydrogen-bonding associated with the adenine-thymine (A-T) Watson-Crick (WC) base pair have been identified in an infrared study of the A-T mimics 4-aminopyrimidine-1-methylthymine (4APM-1MT) and 4-aminopyrimidine-6-methyl-4-pyrimidinone (4APM-M4PMN) in the gas-phase. The IR vibrational spectra were measured via a double(More)
We report the infrared spectrum of the 4-aminobenzimidazole-1-methylthymine (4ABI:1MT) heterodimer, detected by femtosecond multiphoton ionization. Based on calculations of both the harmonic and the anharmonic frequencies, the observed vibrational spectrum is assigned to a structure that mimics the Hoogsteen base pairing of adenine and thymine. A notable(More)
In the present work, the recently developed laser-induced liquid bead ion desorption mass spectrometry (LILBID MS) is applied as a novel technique to study Aβ oligomerization, thought to be crucial in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The characterization of the earliest nucleation events of this peptide necessitates the application of several techniques to bridge(More)
The peptide sequence KLVFF resembles the hydrophobic core of the Aβ peptide known to form amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's disease. Starting from its retro-inverso peptide, we have synthesized three generations of peptidomimetics. Step by step natural amino acids have been replaced by aromatic building blocks accessible from the Pd-catalyzed Catellani(More)
