Selective turn-on fluorescent probes for imaging hydrogen sulfide in living cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an important biological messenger but few biologically-compatible methods are available for its detection. Here we report two bright fluorescent probes that are selective for H2S over cysteine, glutathione and other reactive sulfur, nitrogen, and oxygen species. Both probes are demonstrated to detect H2S in live cells.
