Importance of dynamical processes in the coordination chemistry and redox conversion of copper amyloid-β complexes

Abstract

Interaction of Cu ions with the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide is linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease; hence, determining the coordination of CuI and CuII ions to Aβ and the pathway of the CuI(Aβ)/CuII(Aβ) redox conversion is of great interest. In the present report, we use the room temperature X-ray absorption near edge structure to show that the… (More)
