Mg(2+) plays important roles in numerous cellular functions. Mitochondria take part in intracellular Mg(2+) regulation and the Mg(2+) concentration in mitochondria affects the synthesis of ATP. However, there are few methods to observe Mg(2+) in mitochondria in intact cells. Here, we have developed a novel Mg(2+)-selective fluorescent probe, KMG-301, that(More)
We report a new type of UV-excitable red/NIR-emissive fluorescent dyads (PKF series). Conjugation of a pyrene and a novel bright red/near-infrared (NIR) fluorophore resulted in large quasi-Stokes shift while retaining intense fluorescence emission and sharp spectral bands. Labeling of PKF dyads to biomolecules was performed by means of introduction of a(More)
A novel, smart, chemical taste sensor that realistically mimics the behavior of the human gustatory system is described. The taste sensor consists of an array of electrochemical sensors that represent the gustatory receptors on the human tongue, and a two-phase optimized radial basis function network (RBFN) to represent the human brain, which(More)
