Protein misfolding and metal dishomeostasis are two key pathological factors of Alzheimer's disease. Previous studies have shown that Cu-mediated amyloid β (Aβ) peptide aggregation leads to the formation of neurotoxic Aβ oligomers. Herein, we report a series of picolinic acid-based Cu-activatable sensors, which can be used for the fluorescence imaging of Cu-rich Aβ aggregates.
