A luminescent G-quadruplex switch-on probe for the highly selective and tunable detection of cysteine and glutathione
A G-quadruplex-selective luminescent iridium(iii) switch-on probe has been developed for the detection of cysteine (Cys) in aqueous solution. The system is highly sensitive and selective towards Cys with a tunable range of detection. The detection of glutathione (GSH) is also examined. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
