The conformational epitope was synthesized as a cyclic peptide with additional N-terminal residues CG and a C-terminal G to recapitulate the predicted structure of HHQK on AβO. Peptide synthesis was performed by CPC Scientific Inc. (Sunnyvale CA, USA) [..] Cyclization was performed via a head-to-tail (C-G) amide bond and c[CGHHQKG] was then conjugated to either keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) or bovine serum albumin (BSA) via maleimide-based coupling.
