Reactions templated by cellular nucleic acids are attractive for nucleic acid sensing or responsive systems. Herein we report the use of a photocatalyzed reductive cleavage of an immolative linker to unmask a rhodamine fluorophore, and its application to miRNA imaging. The reaction was found to proceed with a very high turnover (>4000) and provided reliable(More)
The photoreduction of azide-based immolative linker by Ru(II) conjugates to uncage rhodamine was achieved using different oligomeric protein templates. The generality of the approach was validated with three sets of ligand having varying affinity to their target (biotin, desthiobiotin and raloxifene). The reaction rates of the templated reaction was found(More)
The targeted protein of interest is fused with genetically modified β-lactamase enzyme, which reacts with the probe in physiological conditions to break the aggregated interaction between the fluorophore and quencher. This alliance-separation technique is new for protein labeling and is probed in vitro and in live cell imaging studies.
Development of protein labeling techniques with small molecules is enthralling because this method brings promises for triumph over the limitations of fluorescent proteins in live cell imaging. This technology deals with the functionalization of proteins with small molecules and is anticipated to facilitate the expansion of various protein assay methods. A(More)
Two laterally non-symmetric aza-oxa cryptands have been derivatized with the electron-withdrawing fluorophore, 7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole to obtain the corresponding mono-, bis- and tris-products. In each case, no appreciable emission is observed when the fluorophore is excited due to an efficient photoinduced intramolecular electron transfer (PET) from(More)
A laterally nonsymmetric aza cryptand has been derivatized with one 7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazole (fluorophore(1)) and one/two anthracenes (fluorophore(2)) to obtain 1 and 2. Their emission characteristics are probed in the presence of a number of transition metals and proton. In the case of 1, Cu(II), Zn(II), Cd(II), and proton afford a large enhancement(More)
Controlled diluted aqua regia addition leads to NIR (near infrared) luminescence from aggregated gold nanoparticles at 916 nm. This turn-on luminescence has been observed for gold nanoparticles, regardless of reductants used in their preparation. These aggregated nanoparticles are nontoxic and have been used for bioimaging in human liver carcinoma cells.
