major constituent of fibrils isolated from patients affected by the amyloidosis caused by ApoA-I mutations. We have prepared eight polypeptides corresponding to all the currently known amyloidogenic variants of the N-terminal region of ApoA-I, other than a truncation mutation, and investigated their aggregation kinetics and the associated structural modifications. All the variants adopted a monomeric highly disordered structure in solution at neutral pH, whereas acidification of the solution induced an unstable alpha-helical conformation and the subsequent aggregation into the cross-beta structure aggregate. Two mutations (Delta 70-72 and L90P) almost abrogated the lag phase of the aggregation process, three mutations (Delta 60-71, L75P, and W50R) significantly accelerated the aggregation rate by 2- to 3-fold, while the remaining three variants (L64P, L60R, and G26R) were not significantly different from the wild type. Therefore, an increase in aggregation propensity cannot explain per se the mechanism of the disease for all the variants. Prediction of the protection factors for hydrogen exchange in the native state of full-length protein reveals, in almost all the variants, an expansion of the conformational fluctuations that could favour the proteolytic cleavage and the release of the amyloidogenic peptide. Such an event seems to be a necessary prerequisite for ApoA-I fibrillogenesis in vivo, but the observed increased aggregation propensity of certain variants can have a strong influence on the severity of the disease, such as an earlier onset and a faster progression.
