Lys16 is present in the core region of the amyloid β (Aβ) self-assembly in Alzheimer's disease. Here we report that the P9-NCS peptide can covalently react with Lys16 and inhibit Aβ neurotoxic fibrillization. Moreover P9-NCS has high selectivity and it cannot react with amylin, insulin, fetal bovine serum, Q11 and MUC1 peptide.
