ABSTRACT We have developed a quickly responsive, and specific fluorescent assay for the detection of Au(III) on the basis of the formation of gold nanoparticles in the presence of HEPES, which cleave the C-I bond of I-BODIPY 1 to yield the highly fluorescent H-BODIPY 2.

    ABSTRACT: A new fluorescein-based fluorescent probe for the detection of Au3+ has been developed. This probe was derived from 4′,5′-fluoresceindicarboxaldehyde and exhibited highly selective and sensitive response toward gold(III) ions in aqueous solution. There is a good linear relationship between the fluorescence intensity at 523 nm and the concentrations of Au3+ ranging from 0 μM to 60 μM, which makes it effective for the detection of Au3+. The limit of detection (LOD) was evaluated to be 0.07 μM based on S/N = 3. The fluorescence enhancement was attributed to the irreversible CN bond hydrolysis that occurred to this probe in the presence of Au3+, generating the fluorescent 4′,5′-fluoresceindicarboxaldehyde. Furthermore, the imaging experiments indicated that this probe is cell-permeable and can be used to detect Au3+ within living cell.

    ABSTRACT: To alleviate side reactions identified in an N-propargyl-rhodamine lactam sensing system, we devised the novel reaction-based sensing scheme for gold species based on the alkynophilicity. A fluorescein (2-ethynyl)benzoate underwent Au(III)-promoted ester hydrolysis selectively over other metal ions with high sensitivity, which accompanies a turn-on fluorescence change in pH 7.4 HEPES buffer. The work offers a versatile reactive moiety for the development of gold probes with improved sensing properties.

    ABSTRACT: Repeat proteins have recently emerged as promising candidates for the modular design of biohybrid platforms with a high degree of tunability. Consensus sequence tetratricopetide repeat (CTPR) proteins with increasing number of repeats were designed to probe the effects of protein shape on the morphology and resulting physicochemical properties of plasmonic gold nanoparticles. In a synthetic procedure analogous to the biomineralization processes in nature, CTPRs with 3, 6, or 18 tandem repeats were used as both the stabilizing and shape-directing agent. The electronic microscopy and spectroscopic studies indicate that both the [HAuCl4]/[CTPR] ratio and the CTPR shape have dramatic implications on the morphology and plasmon absorbance of the as-synthesized Au NPs. Induced plasmon ellipticity and fluorescence quenching data provide further evidence for the molecular interaction between CTPR and Au NPs or HAuCl4 species. Overall, this work elucidated the effects of CTPR protein shape on the morphology and plasmonic properties of Au NPs, which will further guide the rational design of modular protein based bioconjugate frameworks for colorimetric and enantiomeric biosensors.
