Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Fluorescence nanotomography using resonance energy transfer: Demonstration with a protein-sugar complex

Abstract

A new approach to structural sensing, fluorescence resonance energy transfer nanotomography, which interprets fluorescence decay measurement in terms of site density analysis of molecular distributions, has been applied to a glucose sensor based on competitive binding with malachite green labelled dextran to the sugar binding protein concanavalinA labelled with allophycocyanin. Opportunities for structural sensing in clinical medicine are highlighted.
