In our last contribution at ACS Sensors, we report an amazing methodology (DYNEX) to determine specific intracellular microenvironments taking advantage of excimer kinetics of acridones. Check it out! … Leer más acerca de Cover in ACS Sensors
Our group has identified and improved by rational mutagenesis the first chloride-sensitive red fluorescent protein (RFP). This protein presents a cis–trans isomerization of the chromophore that produces a dual emission band (green and red) with different chloride sensitivities, which allowed us … Leer más acerca de Characterization of the first chloride-sensitive RFP!
We start after the summer break with the release of the front cover of the September issue of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry (vol. 18, n. 33). The manuscript, entitled N-Methyl-β-carboline alkaloids: structure-dependent photosensitizing properties and localization in subcellular domains, … Leer más acerca de Front cover in OBC
