Fluorescent biosensors to detect the bona fide events of biologically important molecules in living cells are increasingly demanded in the field of molecular cell biology. Recent advances in the development of fluorescent biosensors have made an outstanding contribution to elucidating not only the roles of individual biomolecules, but also the dynamic(More)
Ribonucleopeptide (RNP) is a new class of scaffold for modular fluorescent sensors. We report here a short RNA motif that induces an efficient communication between the structural changes associated with the ligand-binding event of RNA aptamer and an optical response of a fluorescent RNP module. An optimized short RNA motif was used as a communication(More)
Ratiometric fluorescent sensors were constructed from RNA aptamers by generating modular ribonucleopeptide complexes. Fluorescent ribonucleopeptides containing fluorophore seminaphthorhodafluor tethered to their peptide subunit revealed a dual emission property, which permitted a ratiometric fluorescent measurement of a substrate-binding event. The strategy(More)
A facile strategy of stepwise molding of a ribonucleopeptide (RNP) complex affords fluorescent RNP sensors with selective dopamine recognition. In vitro selection of a RNA-derived RNP library, a complex of the Rev peptide and its binding site Rev Responsive Element (RRE) RNA appended with random nucleotides in variable lengths, afforded RNP receptors(More)
