  • "To observe the molecule, we are decorating it with fluorescent markers, called fluorophores, that make it glow." - latest science and technology news stories

  • "To observe molecules, we attach reporter molecules called fluorophores that can be directly measured at the single-molecule scale. - latest science and technology news stories

  • The strobe mode overcomes photophysical damage to the polymerase inflicted by excited fluorophores that occasionally “go into a bad state,” as Martin puts it.

  • In contrast to other fluorescent proteins, there has not been a high level of interest for designing better probes in the blue region of the visible light spectrum, and a majority of the developmental research on fluorophores in this class has been focused on cyan variants.

  • Many studies have focused on fine-tuning the fluorescence of native green fluorescent protein to provide a broad range of molecular probes, but the more significant and vast potential of employing the protein as a starting material for constructing advanced fluorophores cannot be understated.

  • The study shows that the fluorophores evenly disperse within this core, giving rise to a nanometer-sized light-emitting structure.

  • "We have shown that the dispersion of thousands of brightly emissive multi-porphyrin fluorophores within the polymersome membrane can be used to optically image tissue structures deep below the skin – with the potential to go even deeper," said Michael J. Therien, a professor of chemistry at Penn State.

  • The electric field of the surface plasmons can also be used to excite near-surface fluorophores (SPRF) [6].

  • The post holder will chemically synthesise novel fluorophores for GTs and use these fluorophores for the development and validation of solution - and solid-phase GT ligand-displacement assays.

  • Typically, attaching fluorophore molecules has been a common method to monitor nanoparticle movement, but these fluorophores have a limited lifetime and so are not practical for longer observations.
