Benzothiazole-substituted benzofuroquinolinium dye: a selective switch-on fluorescent probe for G-quadruplex.

Abstract

A new switch-on fluorescent probe containing the natural product cryptolepine analogue benzofuroquinolinium moiety (binding scaffold) and a benzothiazole moiety (signalling unit) shows a remarkable fluorescence enhancement selective for the G-quadruplex nucleic acid structure. Binding studies revealed that the highly selective response of the fluorescent… (More)
