Enzyme responsive luminescent ruthenium(II) cephalosporin probe for intracellular imaging and photoinactivation of antibiotics resistant bacteria

Author affiliations

Abstract

The Főrster resonance energy transfer (FRET) based luminescent ruthenium(II) cephalosporin probe has been designed and synthesized, which can be selectively activated by endogenous β-lactamases and thus provided a localized and specific intracellular luminescence imaging and photoinactivation of drug resistant bacterial pathogens.
