Amyloid β (Aβ) peptide is considered to be the critical causative factor in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) because the hydrophilic molecules accumulated outside of the neural cells and results in the formation of highly toxicity amyloid plaque. In this study, we probed the interaction between Aβ and the antibody using atomic force microscopy (AFM). We compared two kinds of antibodies which are the antibody for Aβ 1-42 (antibody42) and the antibody for Aβ 1-16 (antibody16). To detect the interaction between Aβ and the antibodies, the single molecular force spectroscopy was carried out using Aβ modified glass substrate and the antibodies modified AFM probes. In the results, the single Aβ-antibody42 dissociation constant was estimated to be 5.2 × 10−3 s−1 and the single Aβ-antibody16 dissociation constant was 2.8×10−2 s−1. The Aβ-antibody42 showed 5.3 times longer bond life time compare with Aβ-antibody16. It suggested that antibody42 is better choice for the Aβ sensor development.
