Glycosylated lanthanide cyclen complexes as luminescent probes for monitoring glycosidase enzyme activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

The development of synthetic chemical probes for the detection of enzymes is extremely important for biological, medicinal, and industrial applications. Here we report the synthesis of an array of novel glycosylated Tb(III) complexes, their photophysical properties in solution, and their ability to function as luminescent probes for observing glycosidase enzyme activity in real time. Our initial studies into the application of these complexes for the detection of the Concanavalin A (ConA) lectin is also reported, highlighting the broad scope of these novel chemical probes.
