Selective Fluorogenic Chemosensors for Distinct Classes of Nucleases



original image

Nuclease sensor trio: Fluorogenic DNA sensors were developed for distinct classes of nucleases: 3′-exonucleases, 5′-exonucleases, and endonucleases. The highly selective sensors, built from very small modified DNA oligomers containing the unnatural fluorescent base pyrene, and employing thymine as a quencher, were found to function in a variety of complex biological media.
