The green tea compound epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) inhibits Alzheimer's disease beta-amyloid peptide (A beta) neurotoxicity. Solution-state NMR allows probing initial EGCG-A beta interactions. We show that EGCG-induced A beta oligomers adopt a well-defined structure and are amenable for magic angle spinning solid-state NMR investigations. We find that EGCG interferes with the aromatic hydrophobic core of A beta. The C-terminal part of the A beta peptide (residues 22-39) adopts a beta-sheet conformation, whereas the N-terminus (residues 1-20) is unstructured. The characteristic salt bridge involving residues D23 and K28 is present in the structure of these oligomeric A beta aggregates as well. The structural analysis of small-molecule-induced amyloid aggregates will open new perspectives for Alzheimer's disease drug development.
