7_02i/2012Inside Cover: Fluorogenic Protein Labeling through Photoinduced Electron Transfer-Based BL-Tag Technology (Chem. Asian J. 2/2012)

Fluorogenic protein labeling helps to localize a protein within the cell in the presence of an excess amount of quenched probes. In their Communication on page 272 ff., K. Kikuchi et al. propose an alternative fast approach for fluorogenic protein labeling. The fluorogenicity can be introduced by the removal of a photoinduced electron transfer-based dynamic quencher. This strategy is more effective compared to the removal of a static aggregated quencher. The cover picture illustrates the better visibility of fireworks at the dynamic state (photo taken at the Hanabi festival in Japan; Sujata Kar Saha helped with cover design).
