The interaction between apolipoprotein E and Alzheimer's amyloid beta-peptide is dependent on beta-peptide conformation.

Abstract

An important feature of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the cerebral deposition of amyloid. The main component of the amyloid is a 39-44-amino acid residue protein called amyloid beta (A beta), which also exists as a normal protein in biological fluids, known as soluble A beta. A major risk factor for late-onset AD is the inheritance of the apolipoprotein (apo… (More)
