Destruction for detection: Protein-protected Au clusters are exploited as nanoscale sensors for label-free fluorescence detection of proteases with high sensitivity. The detection mechanism is based on degradation of the protein shell by a protease, allowing the O2 from ambient air to penetrate through and quench the fluorescence from the Au cluster.
