G-quadruplex-modulated fluorescence detection of potassium in the presence of a 3500-fold excess of sodium ions - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Qin, H; Ren, J; Wang, J; Luedtke, N; Wang, E (2010). G-quadruplex-modulated fluorescence detection of potassium in the presence of a 3500-fold excess of sodium ions. Analytical Chemistry, 82(19):8356-8360.

Abstract

A label-free detection of K+ was developed using G-quadruplex DNA (c-Myc) modulated fluorescence enhancement of tetrakis-(diisopropylguanidino) zinc phthalocyanine (Zn-DIGP). Upon the addition of increasing concentrations of potassium, a detection limit of 0.8 μM for K+ was easily achieved. Comparative titrations using sodium, lithium, ammonium, transition metal, or alkali earth salts revealed that the fluorescence enhancement was highly specific for potassium ions. This system has, for the first time, provided a means for detecting 40 μM of K+ even in the presence of a 3500-fold excess of Na+ ions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
