47_13/2008Cover Picture: A FRET-Based Fluorogenic Phosphine for Live-Cell Imaging with the Staudinger Ligation (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 13/2008)

The Staudinger ligation ... provides a nontoxic method to label azide-bearing biomolecules in live cells and organisms. M. J. Hangauer and C. R. Bertozzi report in their Communication on page 2394 ff. a FRET-based fluorogenic phosphine capable of direct live-cell fluorescent labeling of azido biomolecules with minimal background fluorescence. The cover picture depicts live HeLa cells displaying azido sialic acid labeled by the fluorogenic phosphine.
