Pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with aggregation of the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide into oligomeric and fibrillar assemblies; however, little is known about the molecular basis of aggregation of Aβ into distinct assembly states. Here we demonstrate that phosphorylation at serine 26 (S26) impairs Aβ fibrillization while stabilizing its monomers and nontoxic soluble assemblies of nonfibrillar morphology. NMR spectroscopy and replica-exchange molecular dynamics indicate that… CONTINUE READING
