High-affinity labeling and tracking of individual histidine-tagged proteins in live cells using Ni2+ tris-nitrilotriacetic acid quantum dot conjugates.


Investigation of many cellular processes using fluorescent quantum dots (QDs) is hindered by the nontrivial requirements for QD surface functionalization and targeting. To address these challenges, we designed, characterized and applied QD-trisNTA, which integrates tris-nitrilotriacetic acid, a small and high-affinity recognition unit for the ubiquitous… (More)
