Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
