Design of chemical probes with fluorescence switch for bioimaging

Fluoresence probes for nex-generation bioimaging require new design strategies for labeling biomolecules and regulating fluorescence. In addition to labeling techniques, development of probes with fluorescence switch is important for detection of biomolecules. In this research, we develop chemical probes that emit long-wavelength fluorescence and/or convert fluorescence properties in response to biomolecules for imaging in the depths of tissues or with high resolution.
