Zinc-binding domain of Alzheimer's disease amyloid beta-peptide complexed with a zinc (II) cation
The structure was published by Zirah, S., Kozin, S.A., Mazur, A.K., et al., Segalas-Milazzo, I., Debey, P., and Rebuffat, S., in 2006 in a paper entitled "Structural changes of region 1-16 of the Alzheimer disease amyloid beta-peptide upon zinc binding and in vitro aging." (abstract).
The structure was determined using NMR spectroscopy and deposited in 2005.
The experimental data on which the structure is based was also deposited.
The PDB entry contains the structure of 16-mer from Alzheimer's disease amyloid Protein. This molecule has the UniProt identifier P05067 (A4_HUMAN). The sample contained 18 residues which is < 90% of the natural sequence. Out of 18 residues 18 were observed and are deposited in the PDB.
It also contains one or more heterogenic compounds (e.g., ligands, co-factors, ions, modified amino acids, etc.); see here for a complete list.
The molecule is most likely monomeric.
This entry contains 1 unique UniProt protein:
