Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is associated with typical brain deposits (senile plaques) consisting mainly of neurotoxic amyloid [beta]-­peptides. These are proteolytically derived from the large type I transmembrane protein amyloid precursor protein (APP), which is possibly involved in signal transduction. The large C-­terminal domain CAPPD of the human APP ectodomain has been cloned, expressed in large amounts in Escherichia coli and purified to homogeneity. Well diffracting tetragonal crystals have been obtained and native data have been collected to 2.1 Å. Initial experimental phases from a three-wavelength MAD experiment using (NH4)2OsCl6-derivatized crystals are of good quality and show mostly [alpha]-helical conformations.
