  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are two neurodegenerative diseases genetically characterised by the expansion of the hexanucleotide repeat (GGGGCC)n. Here we investigated the formation of nucleic-acid secondary structures in the expansion repeats, and their role in generating aggregates that are characteristic of ALS/FDT. We observed significant aggregation of DNA (GGGGCC)n, which we ascribe to the formation of multimolecular G-quadruplexes&...
