NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase type I (NQO1) is a target enzyme for triggered delivery of drugs at inflamed tissue and tumor sites, particularly those that challenge traditional therapies. Prodrugs, macromolecules, and molecular assemblies possessing trigger groups that can be cleaved by environmental stimuli are vehicles with the potential to yield active(More)
There is a very limited number of existing probes whose fluorescence is turned on in the presence of the class of biological thiols made up of glutathione, cysteine, and homocysteine. The extant probes for this class of biological thiols commonly have poor aqueous solubility and long analyte response times, and they demand a very high probe/thiol ratio for(More)
The ability to detect and visualize cellular events and their associated target biological analytes through use of cell-permeable profluorogenic probes is dependent on the availability of activatable probes that respond rapidly and selectively to target analytes by production of fluorescent reporting molecules whose excitation and emission energies span a(More)
