Abstract: Brain plaque deposits of amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) is a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and apolipoprotein E (apoE) is thought to be involved in its deposition. One hypothesis for the role of apoE in the pathogenesis of AD is that apoE may be involved in deposition or clearance of Abeta by direct protein-to-protein interaction. Lipidated apoE4 bound preferentially to an intermediate aggregated form of Abeta and formed two- to three-fold more binding complexes than isoforms apoE2 or apoE3. …
