The applications of Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) have expanded tremendously in the last 25 years, and the technique has become a staple technique in many biological and biophysical fields. FRET can be used as spectroscopic ruler in various areas such as structural elucidation of biological molecules and their interactions in vitro assays, in vivo monitoring in cellular research, nucleic acid analysis, signal transduction, light harvesting and metallic nanomaterial etc. Based on… 

Genetically Encoded FRET-Based Probes for Live Cell Imaging

Broad applications of ProCY are suggested on evaluation of hypoxia and PHD activities and understanding of pathways for the control of hypoxic responses, as HIF-prolyl hydroxylases have emerged as promising drug targets for a variety of diseases and high-throughput assays to identify inhibitors or activators of PHDs.

Evaluating spectral overlap with the degree of quenching in UCP luminescence energy transfer systems

The Stern-Volmer relationship is investigated for a set of six commonly functionalised organic dyes and seven biomolecules that contain key chromophoric co-factors with lanthanide-doped upconverting phosphors under low power nIR excitation, and a linear relationship between spectral overlap and degree of quenching is observed.

Aggregation-Induced Energy Transfer of Conjugated Polymer Materials for ATP Sensing.

An efficient ratiometric fluorescent probe based on a water-soluble conjugated polymer that showed high sensitivity and selectivity toward adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) and high selectivity for ATP sensing over other representative anions, which can be explained by the much stronger electrostatic interactions between the polymer and ATP.

Fluorescence resonance energy transfer in a binary organic nanoparticle system and its application.
