Photo-degradation of amyloid β by a designed fullerene–sugar hybrid

Author affiliations

Abstract

A purpose-designed fullerene–sugar hybrid effectively inhibited amyloid β peptide aggregation and caused degradation of its monomer and oligomers, which are key compounds in Alzheimer's disease. Degradation was achieved using long-wavelength UV radiation in the absence of any additives and under neutral conditions.
