Abstract:

The interaction of calreticulin with amyloid beta (Aβ) was investigated using solid phase and solution binding assays. Calreticulin bound Aβ 1-42 in a time and concentration dependent fashion. The binding was optimal at pH 5 and was stimulated by Ca2+ and inhibited by Zn2+ at pH 7. Interaction took place through the hydrophobic C-terminus of Aβ 1- 42 and the polypeptide binding site of calreticulin. The results are discussed in the light of a reported role of calreticulin as a cell surface scavenger receptor.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
