Mechanistic Approaches for Modifying the Coordination Sphere of Metal–Amyloid-β Complexes: Covalent Adduct Formation and Oxidation
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
We report, for the first time, a novel mechanistic tactic to directly modify the coordination sphere of Cu(II)–Aβ complexes in a metal binding residue-specific manner, which can prevent Cu(II) binding to Aβ, modulate the aggregation of Cu(II)–Aβ, and generate chemically transformed Aβ with less cytotoxicity, to the best of our knowledge.
