Heat-shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is one of the most important chaperones involved in multiple cellular processes. The chaperoning function of Hsp90 is intimately coupled to the ATPase activity presented by its N-terminal domain. However, the molecular mechanism for the ATP-dependent working cycle of Hsp90 is still not fully understood. In this study, we use(More)
Proteolytic cleavage of amyloid precursor protein by β-secretase (BACE1) is a key step in generating the N-terminal of β-amyloid (Aβ), which further forms into amyloid plaques that are considered as the hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Inhibitors of BACE1 can reduce the levels of Aβ and thus have a therapeutic potential for treating the disease. We report(More)
