Structural and thermodynamical properties of CuII amyloid-β16/28 complexes associated with Alzheimer’s disease
The aggregation of the peptide amyloid-β (Aβ) to form amyloid plaques is a key event in Alzheimer’s disease. It has been shown that CuII can bind to soluble Aβ and influence its aggregationExpand

Amyloid‐Beta Peptide Forms Monomeric Complexes With CuII and ZnII Prior to Aggregation
The aggregation of the peptide amyloid-b (Ab) into fibrils is considered to be a key event in Alzheimer’s disease. In vivo, the most prevalent forms of Ab consist of 40 (Ab40) or 42 amino acidsExpand

Characterization of the ZnII Binding to the Peptide Amyloid‐β1–16 linked to Alzheimer's Disease
Aggregation of the human peptide amyloid‐β (Aβ) is a key event in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Zinc ions play an important role in AD and in Aβ aggregation. In vitro, ZnII binds to Aβ and acceleratesExpand
