Enhanced fluorescent resonant energy transfer of DNA conjugates complexed with surfactants and divalent metal ions

Abstract

Dimerization and resultant quenching of donor and acceptor dyes conjugated on DNA causes loss of fluorescent resonant energy transfer (FRET) efficiency. However, when complexed with surfactants and divalent metal ions, sheathing effects insulate and shield the DNA structures, reducing dimerization and quenching which leads to significant enhancement of FRET efficiency.
