Neuritic plaque amyloid in Alzheimer's disease is highly racemized.

Abstract

Neuritic plaque core amyloid protein in Alzheimer's disease brain tissue was investigated for the extent of amino acid racemization. Long-lived human proteins exhibit racemization of certain amino acids over the course of a human lifetime. Purified core amyloid was found to contain relatively large proportions of D-aspartate and D-serine, suggesting that… (More)
