HCl Form of Amyloid beta-Protein (Human, 1-40) | Easily Convertible to β-Structure
Amyloid β-proteins (Aβs) were detected to be major plaque components in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients. Recently, Kaneko et al. reported that the HCl form of Amyloid beta-protein (1-40) turns into β-structure within a few hours, and it shows neurotoxic activity. On the other hand, TFA salt of Amyloid beta-protein (1-40) needs >1 week to turn into on a β-structure under their experimental conditions [J. Neurochem., 65, 2585 (1995), ibid., 68, 438 (1997)].
We prepared the HCl form of Amyloid beta-protein (1-40) following their procedure and confirmed their observations shown above.
Characteristics of our new product Amyloid beta-protein (1-40) [HCl Form] are as follows;
- random coil when supplied,
- conformational change to β-structure within 24 hours (by CD measurement under our conditions), and
- significant neurotoxic activity under our determining conditions.
To perform the reproducible study in Alzheimer’s disease research, we now offer Amyloid beta-protein (1-40) [HCl Form] with the highest quality.
