Title

Oligonucleotide-based luminescent detection of metal ions

Language

English

Abstract

Metal ions are prevalent in biological systems and are critically involved in essential life processes. However, excess concentrations of metals can pose a serious danger to living organisms. Oligonucleotides represent a versatile sensing platform for the detection of various molecular entities including metal ions. This review summarizes the recent advances in the development of oligonucleotide-based luminescent detection methods for metal ions. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
