The amyloid cascade hypothesis assigns the amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) a central role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although there are strong efforts to biophysically characterize formation of Abeta aggregates and fibrils, as well as their prevention, progress is still severly hampered by the availability of tens of milligrams of recombinant Abeta(1-42). Here, we describe a reliable and easy procedure to recombinantly express and purify Abeta(1-42), which is fully cytotoxic… CONTINUE READING
