Abstract [en]

Alzheimer’s disease is an incurable neurodegenerative disorder linked to the amyloid β (Aβ) peptide, a 38-43 residue peptide. The detailed molecular disease mechanism(s) is (are) unknown, but oligomeric Aβ structures are proposed to be involved.

In common for the papers in this thesis is interactions; interactions between Aβ(1-40) and selected molecules and metal ions. The purpose has been to find out more about the structural states that Aβ can adopt, in particular the β-sheet state, which probably is linked to the oligomeric structures. The methods used have been nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), circular dichroism (CD) and fluorescence spectroscopy using Thioflavin T (ThT).

Upon addition of SDS/LiDS detergent or Congo red (CR) to Aβ(1-40), the initial random coil/PII-helix state was transformed into β-sheet and, in the case of detergent, a final α-helical state. In contrast to SDS/LiDS and CR, the dimeric Affibody molecule locks monomeric Aβ(1-40) in a β-hairpin state. It was found that by truncating the flexible N-terminal end of the Affibody molecule its affinity to Aβ was improved. The aggregation of Aβ(1-40) was further studied in the presence of a β-cyclodextrin dimer by a kinetic assay using ThT. Although having a weak dissociation constant in the millimolar range, the β-cyclodextrin dimer modified the aggregation pathways of Aβ.

Finally Aβ(1-40) was studied in presence of Cu2+ and Zn2+ at physiological and low pH. Cu2+ was observed to maintain its specific binding to Aβ when decreasing the pH to 5.5 while Zn2+ behaved differently. This could be of importance in the Alzheimer’s disease brain in which the environment can become acidic due to inflammation.       

In conclusion the results show that Aβ(1-40) is very sensitive to its environment, responding by adopting different conformations and aggregating in aqueous solutions. The β-sheet state is induced by varying molecules with different properties, properties that govern the final Aβ state.
